11 Mar 20 UTC Great game, everyone!

Solid defense there, Germany. France having your back helped a TON.

Also, I HUGELY appreciate Turkey for a moderately successful Juggernaut. A lot of Turks would have stabbed for a couple quick centers. I appreciate you not.
11 Mar 20 UTC Good game, all.

@Italy: solid defence, which perhaps deserved better than an elimination, but such is life...

@Russia: it was just enlightened self-interest, any stab would have caused Germany to overrun you and give France a chance of soloing...
11 Mar 20 UTC Oh I know that, not all players do haha.

Many people just try to get the highest number of centers at the end of each year without much strategic consideration.
11 Mar 20 UTC Good game all, thanks to France for the alliance - I apologise for Munich, I used you but I couldn't afford to let you stay in there.
11 Mar 20 UTC Good game all! My first Gunboat game and it was a great learning experience.

@Austria going for Trieste was clearly a mistake on my part and I’ve certainly learned my lesson! Apologies that my mistake (and Russia/Turkey’s excellent play) lead to your downfall as well.
11 Mar 20 UTC Gunboats are VERY interesting. Because you can only communicate with moves and you have to guess the intentions of your allies and use only moves and positioning to communicate who you want to ally with and who you want to attack.

All communication is public. Very interesting.
11 Mar 20 UTC Yes!
11 Mar 20 UTC I'm now over a thousand points. And Germany, don't worry about Munich, I knew you were going to get it soon.
11 Mar 20 UTC Great ally in Germany! And interesting Juggernaut!
11 Mar 20 UTC Allthough, I admit I was very susprised when you left Stp
11 Mar 20 UTC I think they expected to bounce in Norway with the English fleet that was there.

I was surprised as well.
11 Mar 20 UTC Correct, expected to bounce
11 Mar 20 UTC @Italy.
fine, lesson learned.
better lucky next time.
12 Mar 20 UTC Good game all! First time playing England for me. I was probably too aggressive against France to start...I thought Germany would jump in as well, but obviously misjudged that. The lack of bounce later in Norway was partly in response to that. Anyway, wish I would've done better, but I see I was among some pretty strong. players. Next time, maybe... :)
12 Mar 20 UTC I would have went in on France as well and my early moves were towards them, I had to re assess though as had problems east with Russia.
