End Diplomacy in Two Player Games Sun, 10 November 2013 17:43
I just had my most thoroughly unenjoyable game of Smallworld ever. It was due to Diplomatic (because of course it was). To start, it just does not belong in a 2p game. It's a fun power in multi-player games, but should be taken out of the box for 2p (as I've read most people including myself do). But yo don't get that option online.

This game started out with Diplomatic Skeletons as one of the first few races and my opponent picking them (who wouldn't?) Since no other amazing combination came up that could possibly counter them (say Were Amazons or Marauding Pixies), I withdrew after a few turns. And I NEVER quit games. But there was just no point to it because it was obvious how it was going to go.

I don't blame the other player, but I do blame DoW. This just does NOT belong in a 2p game, and if you can't give us the choice to handpick races then you should just take that one out. You can choose to play without various expansions even if you own them. Yet you can do nothing about this since it's part of the base game.

And then the very next game it came up AGAIN. But this time it was in just about the only combination that was just okay: Diplomatic Dwarves!
