21 Jun 20 UTC Good game everyone! That was a really interesting one.

I made a mistake the second-to-last turn. I should have allowed Russia's Norway army to survive a turn longer while I moved my GoB fleet down to the Baltic. Had I done that, I could have taken Berlin. Oh well. Still a great game all around. Well played to Turkey for giving me such a run for my money, and to England and Russia for both managing to get your last few units into the exact right spots for the stalemate (sorry it didn't work in your case, Russia, but it was still an excellent strategy)!
21 Jun 20 UTC Thanks for the game everyone!

I almost threw to Turkey (or tried to) after France tried to take Munich in 1911. But in the end, I decided that there was a chance France killed England rather than me, and that kept me from making any moves which risked a Turkish solo. In retrospect, I wish I'd tried to get Norway down to Sweden/Denmark/Kiel, getting even more deeply embedded in Germany.

I was surprised I even made it to the endgame, after Germany seemed to decide that attacking me was more important than anything else on the board!
22 Jun 20 UTC Yep, very fun & intriguing game. I was trying to get France to take out England, instead of Russia, but that was assuming you were checking the past orders (I was attempting to support Kiel into Berlin). But obviously communication is difficult in a gunboat... and even moreso to organizing a 2 way draw. I've done it before, but it's tricky to say the least lol
22 Jun 20 UTC Oh really? I should have been checking. But if I had gotten Berlin, I would have won; I would have taken St. Petersburg in two turns, which would have been 18
22 Jun 20 UTC Yes, that's true. And I certainly messed up by not leaving an army in bohemia, just in case. But at this point, I still could've gotten back to Silesia in time to hold berlin indefinitely if needed.
22 Jun 20 UTC True. I suppose we both made some mistakes in the endgame, and they evened each other out :)
