Diplomacy World #140 Deadline Reminder

Just a reminder that the deadline for Diplomacy World #140 is one month away (January 1st). If you’re working on anything to contribute to the upcoming issue, please have it done by then. If you want to shoot me an email to let me know what you are working on that would be welcome news too (diplomacyworld@yahoo.com). Since the loss of Jim-Bob Burgess working on the zine is rather bittersweet.

If you played in a tournament or at a convention, why not write about it? If you have one coming up, send me a flyer for it. If you want some ideas for articles, ask away.

James Burgess

I am heartbroken to report that James Burgess has apparently lost his long battle with cancer. My condolences go out to Charlotte and his family and friends. I promised Jim-Bob that I would try my best to keep Diplomacy World going if the worst should happen, despite how much I leaned on him for support in that regard. Jim-Bob will be missed in so many ways.

Calhamer Estate Sale and eBay Items

This message came in from Kim Chmura
 
Hello – I’m looking to spread the word about an upcoming estate sale at the home of Diplomacy inventor Allan Calhamer, April 7 through 9, 2017 in LaGrange Park, IL.  In addition there are several items on ebay (found by searching “Calhamer” with more to be added throughout the week) that might be of interest to Diplomacy enthusiasts unable to attend the sale, including #1 of 500 of the 1st edition of the game!  I see that you have a deadline of 4/1 for your upcoming newsletter which will probably be published after all of this is over.  I’m currently trying to join a few Diplomacy facebook groups.  Any help or suggestions that you could provide to get the word out would be appreciated! 
 
Thank you!
