TGDRT #19: Diplomacy & Allan Calhamer

Episode #19 is live!

With the sad passing of Allan Calhamer, Dirk and Jon felt it appropriate to honor his memory and the legacy left behind by his finest work: Diplomacy. They are joined by Jim Burgess, a distinguished member of the Diplomacy community. The crew discusses what’s made it a gaming favorite for fifty years, a few ideas for improvements and what the future holds for the title.

While I’ve played several games similar to Diplomacy, I’ve never actually experienced the original for myself. I have to be honest, its reputation is part of that – I’m just not sure I could enjoy a game where you have to backstab other players in order to win. Maybe I’m just a softie!

– Jon
