Sorry Boggy you are wrong, your Fleet was attacked from Sweden and therefore can't move into that spot and hence not blocking my movement.

How was it put . . . Ha Ha Ha ha! ;)

I'm really sorry for leaving everyone hanging there. Unfortunately this week has turned out to be rather more busy than I was expecting. I was out last night, and will be tonight and Wednesday as well.

I honestly haven't had a chance to have a good look at the situation, but I note that Math thinks it was correct. As I use an automatic adjudicator I suspect the original was correct, but it didn't feel right when I looked at it either.

However, I think the relevant rule is on page 9 of the rule book: A dislodged unit, even with support, has no effect on the province that dislodged it. This seems to suggest that, if one conflict dislodges a unit, another attacking force can sweep in and take it. So, as the fleet is dislodged from Sweden completely, the army can move in.

So, I'll give people a chance to update their orders in case they assumed one way or the other. Can you please confirm for me (either new orders or stay with current) and I'll move this baby forward as soon as I've heard from all three of you, and have a spare half hour to get it done.

Britain 11 (London, Edinburgh, Liverpool, Denmark, Holland, Paris, Portugal, Brest, Spain, Belgium, Kiel) no change
Russia 15 (Moscow, Warsaw, Sevastapol, Rumania, Budapest, Bulgaria, Ankhara, Constantinople, Vienna, Greece, Smyrna, Serbia, St Petersburg, Sweden, Norway) +2

Russia is on the verge of a win (not sure they can be stopped now). But the next year will tell...

I need
  • France: disband orders for 2 forces.
  • England: retreat orders (I think we are looking at A Denmark and F either nat or MID, but please check)
  • Russia: 2 build orders
I don't think that will take long so...

Sure. But they still have to fight their way from the gulag they are currently interred in to the battlefield. It will take another 3 years.

I do not need to disband. I had 1 build unused last year and I had a unit destroyed last turn.

I'm happy to end it there. Russia can take 3 SCs from me next year and I'm happy to let him.

Rabid is willing to help me try and grab second spot, but I don't think there is any point in dragging things out any longer.

Both are true Olaf, but Rabid may not be able to hold Scandinavia. I don't think it will be long though, so it depends on whether or not Math has a cunning plan, or if he is just fighting a retreat that he knows will end in a Tsarist victory (and, ultimately, worldwide Bolshevism in 1917).

Grats to Boggy. Good game.

Math, I think your mistake was going too early against Russia. At that point you were putting yourself against France and Russia (since Turkey wasn't a massive threat then). If you left it another 2 turns to attack Russia I think you might have won.

My favourite moment in this game was about 2-3 turns after England first stabbed me in the back and had allied with Russia. I was discussing the game with Turkey via email and told him that he should do this, because England is doing this, Italy is doing that, Russia is planning something else and Austria's move will be another thing.

He asked me how I knew all that when I was supposedly at war with everyone on the board apart from Turkey! It was funny because he was right. In the previous couple of turns I had fought with England, Russia and Italy so it would seem odd from an outsider perspective as to how I would know all this info. I guess it could have all been bogus (although the info I had turned out to be correct). Just shows that you should never completely trust anyone in this game.

Cool, well done Rabid and thanks to everyone for taking part. Aside from my big talking, most of which was for show, I did think in about year 2, that I could hold out against Russia and turn the tide. But that was when Math double crossed Germany and Rabid didn't have to disband a unit I desperately needed him to. From there I knew it was over for good old A-H. The failed alliance with Turkey at the start was also problematic (curse you One Eye).

It was a good game though, well fought to the end.

As you guys can tell, I'm not really able to manage another game as the organizer. Happy to be involved if someone else wants to run one though.

Thanks again all, was fun.
