Charity Shop Find

As a lad my mates and I used to play diplomacy often as all nighters.

Today I visited one of the many Charity Shops in Ilkley and was very pleased to find a copy of the early 60s version of the game for £1.99.

The iconic map and pieces look complete and it has the original rule book.  With the anniversary of the start of  the Great War on the 28th July it will be a good idea to invite the rest of the old boys around for a game.

Great find Mark!

Excellent score: the original political map and the artillery shell army pieces and boat shaped fleet pieces as well! You lucky, lucky duck!

Considering its simplicity, if you can get the 7 players together, "Diplomacy" is a prince of a game.

A great find indeed. We used to play many moons ago and I recall producing a Turkish newspaper with illustrations cut out of my school history text book.
