It's a game like risk, but on a smaller scale.

It's like 3D chess, but with 6 people.

Isn't risk the opposite of diplomacy?

Well there's no mission cards, but there's a lot of similiarities.

I mean how risk is all about war and conquest, which is the opposite of diplomacy (not the game).

DIplomacy's like Risk except you don't roll dice and don't mass armies in the same territory. You take territories by moving into them, and when they're contested, whoever supports their movement or holding the most takes the territory. The amount of forces (armies and fleets) you're allowed to have on the board equals the number of supply center territories you control.

Games with more than 2 players have a social element to it as well since you have to figure out whether or not to trust others to support movement and holding with. Likewise, you have to figure out when to backstab. There are no formal rules on alliances. You can make or break them whenever you want. You have to balance out enforcement with reputation and opportunism.

The classic game is a 7 player game between Britain, France, Italy, Germany, Austria-Hungary, Russia, and the Ottoman Empire, but there are lots of variants:

If you want to see how the game works, you can click on the "finished" button on any variant page, and see what orders players made and how the system resolved their orders. The interface is pretty smooth to make orders on when you play too. You just click where you're going from before clicking where you're going to.

For example, if you want to make a support move order, first, you click the moving territory, click move, and click where to move to. Then, you click the supporting territory, click support move, click where to move to, and click the moving territory.

There are drop down menus you can use alternatively if that's too complicated for you.

Anyway, here's a Civil War variant I just finished and won as the union if you want to check out my moves: http://vdiplomacy.net...
