I'm a reporter with NPR's economics team in New York. I'm looking for Diplomacy players in the New York City region. I'm hoping to get in touch with people this week. Email me, [email protected]. Subject line: Diplomacy.

Thanks very much—and hope to hear from you!

All the best:

I'm working on a story about the historically fraught relationship between France and Germany, in light of recent developments with the Euro. The story seems really abstract. So a game of Diplomacy could really ground it. Enliven it.

Ah, so it's a game then! I thought you may have been writing a story about the game! Makes more sense now.

Wow, I love NPR. It's a shame you are not doing a story on the "actual" diplomacy game. ;) But good luck with your story all the same!
