The St John’s Diplomacy Team has three members playing in the Diplomacy World Cup for The Diplomatic Corpse, South Africa’s premier Diplomacy team: Rowan Batzofin, Jason Batzofin & Tamlin Love. This is a wonderful opportunity for our players to learn the game at the very highest level. The game board on the right shows Rowan playing Russia – and holding his own!
Diplomacy is a classic boardgame of skill, there is no luck involved at all. Players need to negotiate, and make and break alliances to win. It was John Kennedy’s favourite game, and is these days mainly played via the Internet.
