Diplomacy: the art of saying "Nice doggy"
until you can find a stick
– Wynn Catlin

The Society was founded to play Avalon Hill's Diplomacy, a tactical board game, in addition to other board games. In Diplomacy, each of the seven players take the part of a Great Power at the start of the 20th Century: Austria-Hungary, England, France, Germany, Italy, Russia or Turkey. The board is shown above.

However, the society doesn't really play this game anymore because we started only doing diplomacy every other week, and then this snowballed into the current situation where the president has only played it once and we're stuck with an confusing name and a bunch more diplomacy sets than anyone really needs :P

If you're really interested in playing diplomacy anyway, a more detailed outline of how the game works can be found here or on Wikipedia.

To get updated information about our meetings you can contact the committee at the email soc-dip-committee@lists.cam.ac.uk, or subscribe to our e-mail list.

Additionally, due to The Virus™, we now have a discord server where our meetings will be held until passing cards around less than a metre from each other becomes socially acceptable again.
