Some people enjoy the thrill of forging a good deal, whether it’s at a
garage sale or a flea market. The best bargainers know that a good deal is one in which both parties feel they have won. There’s a place in the wide world of boardgaming for such people too; the genre called negotiation games.
The classic negotiation game is Diplomacy. Seven players each control one of the Great Powers of pre-World War I Europe. Progress is made by wheeling and dealing with the other players. Players are free to make and break alliances, lie, back-stab, and swindle others in virtually any way possible on their way to controlling more than half of the board and thereby winning.
