The balance of power between the seven Great Nations of Europe teeters precariously at the dawn of the 20th Century. Take control of Austria-Hungary, Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Russia, or Turkey and lead your chosen nation to victory. You will have to balance your expansion with carefully crafted alliances, knowing when to seize the advantage through a perfectly-timed stab while avoiding being stabbed yourself.
1900 is a variant of the classic game, Diplomacy. Its core rules are the same, but the map has changed and been expanded in order to improve play balance, player interaction, and historical accuracy.
Players will find the familiar map expanded to include the rest of the Mediterranean, a passable Switzerland, passage through the Suez Canal, and overall more reflective of territorial lines of 1900 than 1913, what the original game map displayed.
This game is largely played over email with adjudication performed by an electronic judge.
