The Diplomacy Academy

The game I present here is "fools", which is an apt name for a no-press Chaos game. For those unfamiliar with Chaos, it is a variant for 34 players, in which each player initially places an army or fleet in one of the supply centers. What follows is, well, chaos. And with press disabled, all bets were completely off.

The field of 34 players thins fairly quickly, and soon the game is reduced to resemble a standard game a bit more. I played Portugal in the game, and managed to win.
