12 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 1901: Long time no see! Let's hope I've learned something since the last time we faced off three years ago :)

Good luck!
12 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 1901: hey, that went pretty quick!

I'm struggling a bit with time and commitments so apologies if it moves a bit slowly.

Good to meet up again!

Gl
12 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 1901: Please take all the time you need! I will also likely be slow!

And yeah, the belt games go pretty quickly. I happened to be on, so thought I should jump in!
12 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 1901: Fair enough! Go easy on me - I have just come back!
12 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 1901: I don't know... I've been losing a lot lately, so I'm not sure easy would be hard enough for you :)
14 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1901: Sorry for the waits! I have joined too many games at once...

I'll also need to remember that this is 24h. I've almost exclusively been playing 50h games recently.
14 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: No worries! As I said slow is good for me! Didn't know there were 50h games.
14 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: I have already made a mistake ;)
14 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 1903: What mistake is that? You're up, with a great position in Germany, aren't you?

Mar getting stuck sucks, but there's not much that can be done about it
14 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: Big oof on my part...
14 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: Fleet should have gone to nor not den
14 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: Just moved with autopilot
14 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: This has rapidly become a very non-standard game. I'm quite unsure what to do with it.

I've recently been trying out this opening since some people have had great success with it against me, but I really don't know how to play it... Perhaps that shows here... :D
14 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: No idea what to do here either...
14 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: I was going for the galaxy brain strategy of hoping you just wouldn't go for one of my centres... I don't think it worked... :/ :D
14 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 1904: Its just a toss up, luck plays a key part in this variant
14 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 1904: Well... the strategy I have gone for also requires luck in order to work, which doesn't really make it much of a strategy, and much more just gambling.
14 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 1904: To be honest I couldn't say who's doing better
14 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 1904: I don't not have a path to victory, just my path still requires a lot of correct guesses still.
14 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 1904: I'm too out of shape to be able to assess such a complex situation ...
15 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1904: Ah, I vacillated quite a bit between whether to repeat the attempt to bounce Munich or whether to try for a supported attack on Berlin. I guess I outguessed myself lol.
15 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1904: Pf, so did I but I considered a few more options. I thought you were going to blow my army!

Again, lots left to chance
15 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1904: I think you have won this one!
15 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 1905: I think you may be right? But I need to take a sec to make sure. I considered so many options last phase that I really don't remember which results ended with me winning :)
15 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 1905: I'm glad you won. Im playing too many games and keep throwing them away!
15 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Oh wait I think I messed this up
15 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: OMG. like tossing a coin...
16 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Alright so now this gets interesting...
17 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: Alright, that's the game. Very well played!

Do you want me to concede, or play it out?
17 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 1907: The WAR move was straight win/lose, just a coin toss.

No need to carry on if you are OK with it. Taking stp should be pretty straight forward...

GG anyway, I thought you had it and to be honest probably you deserved it!

Until next time
17 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 1907: Having said all of the above I'm also happy to carry on as tat means I can wait a few days before setting up the next game ;)
17 Nov 20 UTC I'll just call it here, then.

I wouldn't necessarily say I deserved it. It was a strategy very much based on guessing, and that's not much of a strategy at all! I think you played much better overall. Thanks for the game!
