This is a really interesting service and I'm looking forward to digging into it but I can't be the only board game geek who was really excited and then really disappointed...

That E-Diplomacy map looks like fun, but...could they possibly make a stupider, clunkier, slower interface? And I'm trying to figure out how they define "leaders" - I assumed political leaders, but for the Australian-UK connection I clicked on, it mostly seems to be Julian Assange's mum.

top e-diplomat: Kevin Rudd

Heh. The guy who spat the dummy and resigned as Foreign Minister months ago. Hmm looking down further, I see they break "leaders" down into heads of government, thinkers, activists etc...
