A Full game of Diplomacy played against the artificial Intelligence (AI) from the 1999 Diplomacy game by Microprose (distributed by Hasbro). As Italy. https://www.historygamer.com/diplomacy/diplomacy_play_hasbro_ai.php
Italy is the best nation to play against the Microprose / Hasbro AIs, because the start is the most difficult. You should attack Austria immediately to
get the two unit start, otherwise when the inevitable French 3 fleet attack occurs you won’t have enough units to hold them up.
My strategy for this game is to hold up France whilst I have fun in Austria and where ever else I see potential gains. Remembering that against AIs you
don’t have to worry about nations combining or upsetting them. It will be you against the rest of Europe.
