2023 Tournament Format Swiss

At the turn of the 20th century, the seven Great European Powers engage in an intricate struggle for supremacy. Military forces invade and withdraw, shifting borders and altering empires with subtle maneuvers and daring gambits. Form alliances and unhatch your traitorous plots as you negotiate and outwit in a delicate balance of cooperation and competition to gain dominance of the continent! In Diplomacy, your success hinges not on the luck of the dice, but your cunning and cleverness.

The Annual Diplomacy Tournament will feature three Swiss rounds over two days. Best two rounds of three will count towards the tournament score. Best Country awards and tournament prizes will be provided by the GM. Firm time limits for negotiation and order writing will be followed to ensure expedient play for competitors with other events on their schedule. No experience required; rules taught.

The GM has upgraded every component of the tournament this Winter. New Best Country awards, new giant maps (3'x3' wargaming mat, 4'x4' wargaming mat, 6'x6' fabric map, and 12'x12' vinyl map), new pieces, photo printed clipboards, engraved pens, flag-labeled bags, stickers, magnets, etc. The large map is printed on 18oz vinyl, so the intent is for players to walk on the giant map and push the equally large pieces themselves. He even picked up some reproductions of WWI officer hats for them to wear during the game for fun.
