Fall 1995 Movement Issue
About The Diplomatic Pouch
- Welcome, news, and publication, subscription, and contribution information.
The Art of Diplomacy in The Art of War
- Would a general in Ancient China 2,500 years ago been a good Diplomacy player?
And how original is that strategy you've been using anyway? These questions
and more answered within. (Notice how the guest editor has shamelessly
placed his article above all the other ones.)
- Jamie instructs us with a Master Class on analysis of endgames - positions in which
a player has a forced win regardless of what anybody else does. Don't forget
to sharpen your pencils, as subtlety abounds.
Incoming! Further Reflections from a Diplomacy Newbie
- Once again, Stephen presents his views on Diplomacy from the perspective of a
newcomer to the hobby. The theme in this essay is the set of challenges
he sees not in playing Diplomacy, but in being a Diplomacy player.
- A whole new crop of letters from the readership, and another topic of discussion
for the next issue. The Pouch Deposits now features a new section.
Through The Looking Glass
- Mark recounts for us the recent goings-on in the rec.games.diplomacy newsgroup.
- Larry, a longtime contributor to the Diplomacy hobby, is the first of the two
columnists who are debuting in this issue. He's off
to quite a start with enough submissions to warrant his own table of contents.
An interesting mix! Take a look.
What You Don't Know Can Help You
- In this column, Danny puts on his game theorist hat and describes an interesting
scenario -- a die toss with a twist -- to aid in a Prisoner's Dilemma-like
situation. Also, be sure to check out his call for
volunteers for the Diplomacy Programming Project.
The Diplomacy Academy
- This issue's column for Dan's Diplomacy Academy takes the form of an edited
game summary and EOG reports for a game called fresh which Dan played in.
The Internet Diplomacy Survey
- Nic, our second new columnist, presents the results of an international survey
taken to answer the question: are PBEM-ers totally separate from PBM?
in the world of Diplomacy.
Blast From The Past
Dropouts and Orphaning
- From the archives come two interesting articles discussing game dropouts
