The Diplomacy Academy

by Dan Shoham


For this edition, I have chosen game Barney. I took over Russia in 1905 when it was down to one center (Berlin). By all accounts a hopeless position -- and, indeed, I lost. However, before losing I managed to survive for almost 20 game years, visit eight supply centers, participate in the elimination of three powers, and have a substantial impact on the direction of the game throughout.

The next time someone says there is no play for a one-center power, suggest a review of Barney's EOG.
