"It's called DIPLOMACY, but exitmentemt is the name of the game. 
The movement and struggle of military action are combined with elements
of bargaining, intrigue, and treachery. The result is a game which is 
virtually unique: your skill as a commander is equally on the line with
your skill in negotiation and deception. The challenge thus presented 
is endlessly fascinating: it is war, yes; but it is also political policy,
applied economics, and practical psychology; it is ...DIPLOMACY.
     A well-played DIPLOMACY game can be truly suspenseful. Will your 
diplomacy succeed in persuading others? If so, will the military campaign
succeed in its objectives? Will your enemies beliieve your lies? How will
your allies keep their agreements? Everything depends on the opinions and 
actions of the other players...not on dice rolls, probability tables or 
the vagaries of chance. DIPLOMACY is much less a mechanistic game and far
more intensely human one.
     There is high drama in DIPLOMACY as players combine and recombine into
new alliance patterns, each seeking both to win and to prevent others from 
winning. Excitment is intense as the surviving players form a last-ditch 
combination to stop the frontrunner..."
