31 Aug 19 UTC [Pacific-Russia]:Good game all
31 Aug 19 UTC [Oz]:Phew. Glad to survive. I wasn’t sure if I was the next one to get narrowed down. My entire second half of the game was holding and hoping others realised I was necessary to stop a USA solo. Thanks for the game all
31 Aug 19 UTC [Pacific-Russia]:Oz, S. Africa, and our original Near East: nice job playing defense against the USA. I tried but didn’t have the position to hold my ground.

I’ve never played this board before, so I don’t know how this games normally play out (which powers are normally better, realistic partnerships / alliances, etc), but I know I definitely overcommitted to moving west after the opening chaos settled. I got stuck for years in a battle with NE for one or two centers in eastern Europe, and as a result was never able to consolidate a defensive position in Central Asia. Earlier than that, I wasn’t really able to capitalize on the collapse of India.

It was fun to watch the big board develop and shift as powers lost their positioning. Enjoyed it all the way through
31 Aug 19 UTC [South-Africa]:Good game all :-)
