26 Oct 20 UTC Well done, Condor, you played a great game!

I’m not sure whether I could have done much differently - Russia and Italy closed the box too effectively for me to get out, but then it took a few turns of me trying to signal the coming French solo before they realised I wasn’t going to continue attacking them.

I’m not sure whether Armenio just lost interest in this game or misinterpreted the situation, but there was a period of several turns where, if they’d supported Ion-TyS, we would have held Tunis for the draw. I guess that’s the difficulty with gunboat.

For what it’s worth, in case I ever meet with any of you again in another game - I may have been gunning for you at some point in the game but, as soon as someone else threatens a solo, you can trust me to do whatever it takes to stop it, up to and including giving up my own centres to someone who needs them more. If someone solos, everyone else loses. ;)
26 Oct 20 UTC Thanks rod, you played a great game too, just the positioning of turkey makes it hard to break through Russia or Italy, especially in gunboat!

26 Oct 20 UTC I was just trying to pass through the stalemate the whole time, although I agree with you, I didn’t feel much pressure to stop me from going through the stalemate. Anyway good game all!
