12 Jan 18 UTC EOG Germany. Unfortunately this was a rather poor quality Game because parts of the Game received no orders from Turkey, Austria, England and then Italy to cap it all off. Despite this I personally worked Germany very hard to achieve the Solo. Im pleased with Germanys achievement and onlookers would attest that I vanquished France, England, Austria, Turkey all Diplomatically and militarily.

Early on in the game Germany achieved good alliance with E and I to reduce France to minimal power. I then decided to pick an ongoing Ally and i stuck with Italy on the basis that Germany would need - at some stage - to dig out England's position if i wished to achieve the Solo. At the same time I achieved a good accomodation peace deal with Russia in the East which allowed me space to take down England in the West. Once that was accomplished it was fait accompli that i would then turn on Italy and go for the Solo. If Italy had been a good Diplomat he might have worked closely with Russia but - oh dear me - Italy was so shocked that i should move on him and decided it was all a bit too hard and left the Board. After that it was curtains - I was able to takeout six Italian held SCs in next two years to Solo in 1907. I wish to give credit to Russia for being a true Diplomat who played it in a great spirit. No one else on this Board tried very hard and all deserve rebuke for being fair weather players unable to muck through the hard yards and the Diplomacy that is required to accomplish something excellent in this Game. Thanks, Damo player of Germany.
