"Luck plays no part in Diplomacy. Cunning and
cleverness, honesty and perfectly-timed betrayal are the tools needed to
outwit your fellow players. The most skillful negotiator will climb to
victory over the backs of both enemies and friends.
Who do you trust?"
Diplomacy is a game which is easy to learn but impossible to master. The rules are all very intuitive, lots of people pick them up just by playing, but this document will familiarize you more quickly.
The objective of Diplomacy is to be the first to get 18 supply centers. For each supply center
you occupy you get a new unit, and you lose a unit whenever a supply center you own gets
occupied by someone else.
You can recognize the supply centers with the markers which are placed on them.
