From our very first game, members of the club have been clamoring to spice things up with an occasional Diplomacy variant. But the Prime Weasel was an unrepentant purist, and he squashed such talk with an iron fist.
We’ve played all 109 games on the standard board with the standard rules. Only once, out of necessity, did we play a game with fewer than seven players. For the Weasels, variety has meant spicing up the way we selected powers.
However, we now have a new Prime Weasel as well as a transplanted Buckeye who is chomping at the bit to introduce a few variants into the mix. The time seems right to spice things up.
What do you think?
- Do we need variants to keep things interesting?
- Is there a particular variant you’d like to try?
- Do you really want to play France in Colonial Diplomacy?
Let’s hear your thoughts in the comments section below. Remember, you’ll have to log in to comment. Perhaps Nate Cockerill will take your opinions into consideration when he chooses a variant to play for a game he’ll host this fall.
