This is a simple traditional variant of Diplomacy, involving the usual seven powers. There are only seven spaces on the board -- each of these is the single home supply center for one of the powers. Every one of the seven spaces is connected to every other space by land. To begin the game, each player begins with one army in his home supply center.

The object of the game is to accumulate four supply centers.

Design Notes

This variant was designed by Danny Loeb. It is the ultimate test of persuasive Diplomacy, as every position is equally weak and dependent on the others.
