Game drawn
05 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 1906: Italy - as per previous I'll move Tyl - Pie. I'll also be moving Budapest to Vienna with the intent of moving it on to Bohemia in fall, and Aegean to Ionian.

Let's see if France/England/Germany can stuff it up again :) If so, let's go... if not then let's draw. I still think EGIT is a better draw, but accept Germany's point that it is more trouble than its worth.
05 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 1906: I make a different point regarding the French. Their determination not to go 2v 1 in the north was important in shaping how this game has played out.
05 Mar 18 UTC Um, Germany, what are you doing?
05 Mar 18 UTC France hoping you are supporting yourself into wmed from naf and spa.
05 Mar 18 UTC I know that this next comment will bring me both shame and scorn, but would I be wrong to point out that an unscrupulous Turkish player could pick up 4 centers this turn and go to 14?
05 Mar 18 UTC @England: I support you to hold in WMed from MAO and NA.
05 Mar 18 UTC @England: I support you to hold in WMed from MAO and NA.
05 Mar 18 UTC What do you mean England?

I don't care if Turkey has 10 centers, 14, centers, or 17 centers, if I continue to issue the moves I am, you hold StP, and no further progress is possible beyond Tunis in the Med, Turkey can't win this game.
05 Mar 18 UTC @Turkey - why the tap on Pie?
05 Mar 18 UTC Ok.
05 Mar 18 UTC What were you wanting me to do?
05 Mar 18 UTC We have a stalemate position now. If we just submit holds ad infinitum, Italy and Turkey can't progress further. It'd just be up to Turkey to decide if he wanted to eliminate Italy
05 Mar 18 UTC That's why I said OK...thank you for explanation.
05 Mar 18 UTC Turkey, what’s the plan? Breaking the stalemate line doesn’t seem promising so is there a stab planned for this autumn or should we draw and get on with the next game?
05 Mar 18 UTC Italy! Yes!!
06 Mar 18 UTC Good game all.

I think the screaming about an 18 was misguided, but you certainly put up a strong stalemate line as a result. Draw sized scoring is so artificial that the "right" move now is to wipe out Italy and Germany... but that's just terrible so lets have a draw.
06 Mar 18 UTC I still disagree about that being the "right move." If England had attacked me, I for sure would have given you the centers you needed to solo.

I think England and I could have eliminated France, but just didn't see the point.
06 Mar 18 UTC Thanks for the game.
06 Mar 18 UTC Well that was fun....not the carnival ride kind of fun...more like the fun when the creepy clown finishes his act. Good luck to all.
06 Mar 18 UTC Germany - but in a tournament under that scoring system I just back my units away to give space to do it. Very contrived.

In any case - thank you all for the game - the talk was great even if the result was quite regulation :)
