So this actually is becoming an issue! We already own a lot of games and the group of friends around us that play (and own) board games is expanding. Luxury problems! And this Wednesday is my birthday and I really don’t know what to ask. There’s still some games in our house that we still need to play, so I’m hestitant to ask for even more games. I’ll just let people surprise me, haha. 😀
Diplomacy is (as far as I heard) quite a way to damage friendships. I myself haven’t played it, but Heinze did. What I know is that the game takes a very very long time to play. And you most certainly know that a nice friend you negotiated an alliance with, will break that alliance as soons as he/she got what he/she wanted out of that deal. I’ve heard other people still talk about betrayal in a Diplomacy game that took place years ago. It’s fascinating, but to be very honest: not something I would play.
