20 May 16 UTC Damn it! Sorry all. I really thought I was able to work around England.

France, my hope was that I could get to Lyon and then support you into Spain, and further. I am sorry for the take of the centres right at the point when England was at the point of no return.

This one's on me.

Congrats, VirtualBob!
20 May 16 UTC Thanks guys. Good game. I really don't like playing England but this worked out.
20 May 16 UTC I wrote in my notes when I thought this game really changed, and it was in 1904 when Austria moved to Eas Med. That pulled my attention from where it should have been. But, I still have to apologize for unwittingly chewing up French centres when the England force was right there.
20 May 16 UTC My twin misorders in fall 1908 were key. I meant to cut French support for MUN and also meant to support myself from HOL to BEL instead of France the other direction. Kicking myself at the time but it worked out OK.
20 May 16 UTC Not all on you HB. A lot of my fault for also not covering myself well enough. Well played VB. I was kicking myself as in the other game I had a nice EF going and could have taken the stab but chose not to. You made the right call and pulled it off

By time I was trying to pull back it was too late.

Well played another enjoyable little series
20 May 16 UTC People feeling like they need a little break from gunboat or would there be interest in another series. Seems we've created a core little group here and I wouldn't mind some more games/series in the future.

I think it would be fun/awesome to create a scoring/ranking at the end of a series.
20 May 16 UTC I think a break of a few weeks followed by a more regular thing with scoring would be pretty cool.

well played to all and thanks again.
20 May 16 UTC Good games guys. Y'all been killing me, that's about all I can say. Well done
21 May 16 UTC I could go for another series whenever ... add me to the PM list when you are ready to start it.
21 May 16 UTC We could be the new league that everyone wants to be a part of, except, we have all the spots!!!! I like Wusti's idea.
21 May 16 UTC I'm happy to set something up a bit more formal. I'll give it a couple of weeks - maybe start first week of Jan
21 May 16 UTC sounds good to me as well!
