comment Games that have no element of luck.
Of course, there are some positions in Diplomacy where there is some luck involved - e.g. where you are attacking an opponent and there are two possible sets of orders for each of you; you just have to guess what your opponent will choose. In those situations, it's random in the same way that rock-paper-scissors is random. This is, of course, true of any imperfect-information game.

comment What components does “everybody” have?
Only six-sided dice for most people, though. If you need D10s or something, then you limit your audience.
