Pure Diplomacy

Postby Zanmor » 09 Mar 2009, 05:41

Has anyone played that variant? If you have J-Dip you may have seen it. For those that haven't, it is a weird variant where each of the 7 European powers in the standard game have one supply center a piece, their capitol. The board is just a circle, everyone has an army and all of the SCs are adjacent. It's very abstract. I was thinking of trying 'Quantum Diplomacy,' which would be the same thing but with more SCs for each power, and I remembered Pure existed already. So, back to the original question, has anyone played it and what are your thoughts?

Haha, how amusing. Probably something like how a Pure game would run.

Lol I just posted a link to Easter Island dip in another thread where somebody was looking for a variant to play with 8-12 ppl who weren't good enough to handle World. I suggested 3-4 simultaneous games of Easter... nobody answered me. :lol: 8-)

I saw that link. I love the story included. Funny variant, ha. I bet you could just play that one face to face, like without even trying to hide your scheming from anyone.
