Anyone else think England’s more dangerous to Germany than France?

I know that the traditional wisdom is that France is the most dangerous force to everyone on the board and must be taken down first, etc. But I’ve played a few games as Germany lately where England ended up being a far bigger problem to me. The trouble is that once England has territories in Scandin...

Re: Guess the Word

The cutting in half clue is the most interesting one yet. I'm trying to puzzle it out myself, especially considering that we now know it isn't tangible.

I think the fact that it's SoS is keeping some people away.

Re: [Poll] Natural Enemies and Allies for each nation

There should probably be an option for "none" on the questions. I don't think Turkey, for instance, really has any "natural" allies, unless you mean people-whose-success-will-positively-correlate-with-yours, in which case France and England would qualify, I guess.

Can you we do another game like this? This one really helped me in ways of communication, stalemate and going for the draw.
I would be up to join another! But maybe we should let the other two of the original 4 games wrap up first, so that anyone from those games who wants in can join too.

Re: seeking players for gunboat with EOG discussion so we can improve

Here are the outside looking in notes/EOG that I promised way back in this thread, for game #1. Too busy rn to clean them up proper. Hopefully it will be interesting to the players. https://pastebin.com/dDSUNVER You wrote EOGs for the games you weren't even in? What an absolute chad. I barely had t...

Re: seeking players for gunboat with EOG discussion so we can improve

• Russia, (I haven't read through your whole journal so apologies if this is answered) why didn't you build more fleets in StP? Russian solos often involve a concentration of northern fleets and you had a couple opportunities to make that happen. For example, you could have convoyed Lvn-Fin after b...
