Let's see, off the cuff...

A couple of those FvA's or GvI's where I ALMOST beat CptMike
http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=232299
http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=233928 (this one I had a nearly won position and screwed it up :( :( :( )

The time I solo'd a pretty good gunboat board as AUSTRIA 8-) 8-) 8-)
http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=232469 (and after giving up Trieste in 1901 to boot - in particular, being able to manipulate Germany into stabbing France at a time when it'd lead to my solo, solely through making suggestive moves was a lot of fun)

I think my most exciting finished game is probably this lovely chaos one. I survived far longer than I should have and felt like I had a fighting chance all the way through to the midgame.

I also have a rather thrilling (for me) Masters game at the moment, but I can't say which one. I'll post the link when it's over.
Then of course there's this one...

@BobMcBob, the chaos game was very interesting! I love the thrill of being on the ropes with a single unit or something similar, and yet remaining around. Also, I happen to spectate the other one :)


I have a few remarkable games myself... And it feels somewhat old to look at games you remember so well and realize they were played seven years ago.

http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameI ... #gamePanel - this was a great lesson! Playing with players more skilled than I was, what seemed like a three-way strike on France in 1909 did not eliminate me, as I made it all the way to 1926. Having 5 SCs and units in Aegean, Trieste, Silesia, Berlin and North Atlantic, fighting a ten-year struggle against solo-hopeful Russia on all fronts was indeed very thrilling.

http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameI ... #gamePanel - This equally long game was very interesting as well. As an aside, I'm not sure if I'm more shocked by my bet on defending the Med solely by guessing, from Spring 1916 to Autumn 1917, or by the fact that it worked.

Though there are many others, this one was the most challenging I ever played: http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameI ... #gamePanel - though it had to be drawn earlier due to personal issues with one player, the level of skill of all other players (handpicked by myself for their superb press) made for a very, very balanced game. Understanding what was going on was a constant challenge, which I long to repeat.
