Remember to finalize your orders if you don't want to wait, so the game isn't held up unnecessarily!
05 Nov 17 UTC Nice support of my convoy to Tuscany in fall of 1918, Italy...
05 Nov 17 UTC Gg all.
05 Nov 17 UTC Russia, we could have drawn much earlier had you stopped support holding Germany.
05 Nov 17 UTC France: thank you.

I hate to be difficult but why did you wait so long to take the draw? You (and I) are luck Austria didn’t win.
05 Nov 17 UTC Germany - why didn’t you take the draw?????????
05 Nov 17 UTC Hey Tugster — I used your Italy variation. It worked very well. Thank you.
05 Nov 17 UTC Do you mind if I christen it the “Chianti variation”??
05 Nov 17 UTC Chianti is a Tuscan wine.
05 Nov 17 UTC I was also waiting ages for Germany to be taken out so we could draw!
05 Nov 17 UTC Italy, yes, you were doing GREAT, until you TWICE decided to attack France for no apparent reason...

And no, it's the "Tugster" Variant... lol
05 Nov 17 UTC I died for this? A 5-way draw?
05 Nov 17 UTC To be honest, I am pretty new and wasn't really sure how to deal with a 1 v 4 sorta situation.
05 Nov 17 UTC To be honest, I am pretty new and wasn't really sure how to deal with a 1 v 4 sorta situation.
05 Nov 17 UTC Not your fault (entirely). France could've eliminated Italy without risking your solo.
05 Nov 17 UTC You could've allowed England to remove Russia though, which he was trying.
05 Nov 17 UTC If France tries to take out Italy, Italy tries to give Austria the solo.
05 Nov 17 UTC The first time I attacked France, it was to try to win. The second time it was to force a draw. Italy was aligned with Austria, and after Turkey falls, there is no place else to go but west.
05 Nov 17 UTC Happy to call it the Tugster variant. :). It’s a good opening.
05 Nov 17 UTC I don't really see anything Italy could've done from this position. Helping Austria into Tunis is challenging if you look at the map.
06 Nov 17 UTC If he takes Tunis, I destroy Naples. Then Austria gets Naples and then Rome. I don’t know if Austria can get the 18th center, but it’s a tense position. France is a great player, so if anyone could hold it, he could.
