Good map, terrible components, a real shame...
on October 18, 2014
I got this game because I wanted to play Diplomacy and this is the current version... well it's a disappointment. The board is good and its nice there are a sheaf of paper copies of the map but the other component quality is terrible. Gone are the wood blocks, metal pieces., or even plastic armies and navies of previous versions, here you get very poor quality cardboard markers. Considering you can download the rulebook from the manufacturer for free, the components are the only real differentiator, and they're bad. As the anniversary edition of this seminal negotiation game, check the wiki page out for the interesting background, and the only one in print for US gamers this is a sad state of affairs.
