comment How can I recognize games I should avoid buying if I only play with non-hardcore gamers?
@Lo'oris I agree 'games deceptively conceal their inner complexity' is a whole other question in itself.

Diplomacy IMHO it is very easy to pick up - so easy that I almost posted it to your other thread... After all, the main round of play in Diplomacy relies on human skills of interaction and negotiation - rather than any special board game strategy knowledge. The rules are very simple at a base level and have little 'special' extensions or gotchas. It also has no dice and a relatively limited set of pieces. I would agree with avoiding Axis & AlliesThe 30mins+ it takes to set up would switch most people off, even before you get into the convoluted turn process and thick rule book.
