Lie, Cheat, and Rule The World - Diplomacy Reigns Supreme

Listen as Weekend America covers the annual convention for the players of the boardgame Diplomacy. I've been to plenty of boardgame conventions, and I feel sure that I knew people who were there. At least one of my pals usually makes the trip to this convention. The great thing about this story is that a decidedly geeky boardgame got covered in a national story. It's something to celebrate, especially since the players at this convention almost seem normal.
Manipulation. Lies. Betrayal. It's all in the name of fun.
