Pax Britannica is, as the start of the rules say, "a multi-player game that re-creates the dynamics of the colonial era, from 1880 to the outbreak of the Great War." In practice, Pax is a fairly complex board game (or fairly simple war game) that really is a cleverly disguised diplomatic game. In terms of sheer diplomacy, I rate Pax up there with only, well, Diplomacy.

Pax Britannica was written by Greg Costikyan and published by the now defunct Victory Games in 1985. Now having been out-of-print for several years, its enjoying surprising popularity on the internet.

My apologies. For various reasons, I haven't updated this page in a couple years. However, much of what remains is highly useful, so I'm not going to just take the page down. Whilw I do occasional links purges (and my apologies if you do find dead links), I'm no longer actively looking for new links, though I'd be happy to add anything that someone emails to me.
