I don't do much with non-English language material, because if I have to labor to read it...

This still seemed cool, though:

Good ol' wooden pieces.  Yea, I miss my old copy.  Still never played a full game where everyone stuck through it until they were ousted.

I believe so, or at least an early mass-market version. This would be the one played by the creators of D&D when the Great Kingdom map was drawn (1970/71), while new editions of Diplomacy appeared in '71 and '76.

If Diplomacy was actually a role playing game, would the level advancement look like this?

 1. Contriver
 2. Plotter
 3. Intriguer
 4. Campaigner
 5. Armchair General
 6. Puppet Master
 7. Mastermind
 8. Tactician
 9. Strategist
10. Grand Strategist
11. Diplomacist

It's more than a little strange that BoardGameGeek seems to lack a picture of 'big pink' from 1959, the 1st printing of Dip. Its cartoon cover portrays 1950s Americans in a cocktail-party setting, and its overall color is pink. The only one I've ever found was owned by famed boardgame designer/collector Sid Sackson, and I'm extremely glad I grabbed that ultra-rare copy.

Yeah those self-published editions are quite rare. I turned over quite a few stones trying to find one. This one here is a Games Research edition, probably from the early 1970s. The board in it is still a rendition of the original Calhamer board from 1959, though. Rarer still would be the Game of Realpolitik pre-pub, but fortunately there are scans online.

This one should from about 1961.  In 1961, after Games Research, Incorporated began publishing the game, they updated the copyright date on the board to 1961.

A good resource for dating these is here mysite.verizon.net/~vze4r2c2/Diplomacy/ ... S-GRI.html.  Unfortunately most of the links are busted, but with a little effort, you can navigate the site.

FYI, I am the first bidder.  No need for anyone here to bid.  I have one of the same vintage but it is not as in as nice of a condition.  It does have the original price sticker from FAO Schwarz though, which I think is kind of cool.

I also have an edition of the British version that predates any on the website that I linked to.  The "Timothy" board has no copyright and the pieces are plastic blocks, not bullets.  I really should post pictures somewhere.

Frank,

Is your copy like the one listed at the bottom of this page mysite.verizon.net/~vze4r2c2/Diplomacy/ ... S-ABC.html?

I wish I had bid on some of the Sackson estate.  It would have been nice to have something from his collection.  

I love Sackson's Acquire game.  I am still looking for a copy of the large format "World Map" edition, circa 1962.  I've never seen one on eBay.  Do you have one, Frank?  Does Rhea Shelley?
