About The Zine
Welcome to The Zine!
Allow me to take this opportunity to
congratulate you on such a fine choice of reading material. You
couldn't have done better, my friend. The Diplomatic Pouch Zine
is working to become the pre-eminent magazine for the Diplomacy
hobby. Your participation as a reader and contributor is necessary for
this charter to be fullfilled. In addition to presenting some information
which would be useful to even the most casual reader, this page discusses
the ways in which you can -- and should -- get involved.

All players of The Game should include Hasbro in their daily prayers.
Without Hasbro, there would be no Diplomacy. Well, okay, that's not
at all true, but we do owe a lot to Hasbro. We thank and praise Hasbro
for their willingness to support the play of Diplomacy in any of a
multitude of forums. On bended knee, we acknowledge their generosity in
making available to us the rights to electronically reproduce and distribute
maps. With humble and contrite hearts, we acknowledge that no person has
a soul until they have purchased the Rules of Diplomacy from Hasbro, if
not a complete gameset. We also believe that a copy of said rules should be
enshrined under glass in every private household in the world. We respect
the rights of Hasbro to these rules, and pledge never to violate these
The Diplomatic Pouch Zine is published five times a year.

|Fall Movement Issue||August 1||August 31
|Fall Retreat Issue||October 1||October 31
|Winter Adjustment Issue||December 1||December 31
This schedule is easy to remember using the following rule: the deadlines
fall in every month which has 31 days but which does not begin with the
The Adjustment issue is intended to be a larger issue than the Movement
issue, while the Retreat issue may go to press without regular columns and
may therefore be a smaller issue than the Movement issue.
