The auction is over and some devoted Dipper has put up the wnning bid: $5,234.00.

This message is in reply to post 27800:

I got an email from Douglas Kent of Diplomacy World fame, so I thought I'd spread the word on various forums. Mr. Calhamer's estate is being liquidated. Among the items being sold on ebay is a first edition of Diplomacy, marked 1 of 500. In other words, Alan Calhamer's PERSONAL copy, which just also happens to be the FIRST COPY of Diplomacy published. EVER.

I am not particularly into collecting things, but for this I may make an exception. If I had to explain it to a non-Dipper, I'd say this was the equivalent, for an American, of being able to purchase Thomas Jefferson's personal copy of the Declaration of Independence, signed by all of the Founding Fathers.

Diplomacy games may contain lying, stabbing, or deliberately deceiving communications that may not be suitable for and may pose a hazard to young children, gullible adults, and small farm animals.
