was founded by Borger Borgersen in the first half of the 1990s to
unite Norwegian diplomacy players. The Association functioned well
for a few years, but later it became inactive. "Backstabber", NDA's
Zine edited by Borgersen, was issued regularly in the period 1990-1998.
NDA, lead by Borger Borgersen and Bjørn Tore Sund, also organized
the EDC IV (report in English)
in Oslo, June 1996. In a way, this was the Golden Age of Norwegian
Diplomacy: Inge Kjøl became the first and only double European
Champion in 1995 and 1996. Norway fielded a team of 3 diplomats (Borgersen,
Kjøl and Eskeland) in the 1995 Paris WorldDipCon, where Eskeland
was the best (8th place) non-francophone player. Borger Borgersen
took 3rd place in the 1997 Gothenburg WorldDipCon as well as being
a member of the winning team. In the mid-90s Anund Rannestad initiated
the "Rannestad Convention". NDA has now been inactive for about 2
to 3 years, although we're certain that quite a bit of Diplomacy has
been played in Norway. In the autumn of 1999, a Norwegian team signed
up for the "1999 World Masters E-mail Diplomacy" tournament. At this
venue, the idea of reviving the NDA was born. A foundation meeting
was held Februar 28, 2000. A new board
was elected and new statutes adopted.
now starting up again. This will be a gradual process, and the first
step has been to secure this domain as a permanent home for the Association.
We would now like to recruit more members and promote the game of
Diplomacy amongst Norwegians. At this site we will publish information,
that we hope will be of interest to Norwegian diplomats. Some time
this year, we'll organize the first Norwegian E-mail Diplomacy Championship.
In the future, we would also like to contribute to more organized
forms of playing FtF in Norway, encouraging the formation of local
clubs and arranging tournaments. We invite both beginners as well
as players that have played before to join an e-mail game. Contact
us and we will arrange for a game master and advice you how to get
started playing via the internet.
