Liberty Cup 2021
Participants should be aware that 18Philadelphia will share a venue with a concurrent Diplomacy board game tournament (Liberty Cup 2021). For those with concerns about “the game that destroys friendships,” this is a bit of an exaggeration … plus, tournament Diplomacy is played under a strictly enforced code of conduct that ensures a safe and pleasant environment for all participants.
