This historically themed turn-based strategy contest from the makers of Europa Universalis is based on the Avalon Hill board game of the same name. As the title implies, the game revolves around negotiations and agreements, instead of battlefield tactics or military might. The ability to craft beneficial bargains almost always requires some degree of trust, but a wise ruler also knows when to break his word for the sake of his nation's betterment. Paradox Interactive's computer version of Diplomacy supports multiple human players, but does not require them — the game's interface and artificial intelligence are designed to allow players to make deals involving essentially anything that exists in the game world, and to challenge single players with clever, computer-controlled opponents who have their own wants, needs, and schemes. ~ T.J.
