15 Jan 19 UTC That should do it ... shouldn't it?
15 Jan 19 UTC Good game everyone. Italy - it was a lot of fun teaming up with you; England and France - great battle right up to the end.
15 Jan 19 UTC Tip of the hat:
To France, for being an excellent ally
To Germany, who played as good a game as could be expected under the circumstances, and who deserved better treatment from perfidious Albion.
Wag of the finger: to Russia, who abandoned his position and the game
Tip AND Wag: to Austria. You played a superb tactical game and I certainly enjoyed our correspondence. But I do think you forced this game into its endgame stage prematurely by locking in the EF v AI dynamic pretty much as soon as you joined the game, thereby turning it into a tactical struggle with little diplomatic/strategic dynamism.

Thanks for the game everyone. Hope to see you again.
15 Jan 19 UTC Thank you very much and it was also a great ally, and Austria deserves the truncheons here, could hold out until the end
15 Jan 19 UTC England - I, too, enjoyed the press sparing almost as much as the game itself. As to that AI alliance there were other options if things played out differently. I had hopes of forming the Central Alliance with Germany and Italy and going for a 3WD with my allies but I couldn't get help to Germany fast enough. And as I have already discussed with Italy if I had a shot at a solo that AI alliance would have gone down the drain. Circumstances led us to EF v AI, but there were other paths open if the game had played out differently.
15 Jan 19 UTC Thanks, France - I choose to take that as a compliment! :-)
15 Jan 19 UTC Two masterminds and an experienced player, I'm lucky I survived! This was my first game on this site, though I've played extensively and used to play a lot on the old email-only servers. But thanks for a great game and my first in many years. It was great to get back to my favorite game, though I still miss the face-to-face aspect. Thanks to Austria for picking up where the original left off and sticking with it and new England for taking over. Take care all and good luck.
16 Jan 19 UTC Good game and well played all! Definitely a challenge but very enjoyable.
