This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Space: 1889 + Diplomacy (the board game)

They synchronize fairly well. Surely this has been done by someone who is both clever and creative. I keep thinking there must be some awesome way to incorporate a Diplomacy game into Space: 1889, perhaps with players running PCs in Space: 1889 and countries in Diplomacy to effect changes in political situations between the Great Powers on Earth as well as the other Inner Planets. Although I suppose the Diplomacy turns would be infrequent as 2 make a year go by.

Why specifically Diplomacy? There are other multiplayer games.

I suppose you might create a solar system map, or planetary maps of Mars/Venus to use in conjunction with Pax Brittanica. Would be kind of overkill, but the general focus/approach of that game (which is more about colonialism than direct confrontation between Great Powers) seems better suited.

It's about the same era, features the same national powers, and I own it.

I don't know what Pax Britannica is.
