25 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 1901: We are on!
25 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 1901: Thanks for making the game BTW.
25 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: I don't know who will win this one, but the contrast between France's fleet advantage and Austria's armies in the middle of the board has been really interesting. I like this map.
25 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 1904: Yeah. Ideally for France, there's a fleet build almost every year. Some of those have to go north so that an advantage in Scandinavia can mean something.
31 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: Very clever. I almost used Silesia to support myself to Prussia but didn't want to risk it - a mistake on my part!
31 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 1907: 3 Supply Centers behind your own line being all you need for victory is cause for drastic measures methinks.
01 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: You've won, it seems.
01 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: If I don't force you out of Norway, you win.
If I force you out of Norway, you can retreat to Sweden.
If I block you out of Sweden, you can take Berlin.
If I block you out of Moscow, you can force it next year.
01 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: I don't know if it's guaranteed, but it seems likely.
01 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: It's really right now a 50-50 guess to end it or not. Will I move to moscow, and will you? If we both do, I bounce. If one of us does, then I either get Moscow or keep St P, putting me at 18 centers.
01 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: Right? Am I counting that correctly?
01 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: Yes, that's correct. And if we bounce in Moscow, you can reorganize your units to support yourself to take it next year.
02 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: Ah,shoot.
02 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: Stupid random number generator. We are headed to a draw I think.
02 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: well, maybe not? Even a fleet in Baltic immediately can't force Berlin. I think I do have the solo.
02 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: But we can draw if you'd like :)
02 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: I will take the offer under consideration.
02 Feb 17 UTC Good game, this was a fun set. Very evenly matched.
02 Feb 17 UTC Good game. I've now been in a full set of Austria wins and a full set of France wins. It was an honor to play against you.

Good luck as you go on.
02 Feb 17 UTC Thanks!
