Re: Do I survive with units but no centers?

The rulebook says that anyone with units on the board is a survivor. Adjustments to remove units happen after centres are counted. The latest version of the rulebook online only seems to count "pieces on the board" as a criteria of who gets in a draw, not who "survives" in a solo: "As soon as one G...

An update, just because I'm in the mood. Apologies for the book. I'm up to 19 games as each power against the bots, for a total of 133 games (results and stats, as mentioned before, at https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1gfIraEmmONofeeI0scnzycsxokDLlrEK-rat572-S-I/edit?usp=sharing) For purposes ...

Re: ODC 2019 Tournament Start

It was also a game where the tournament setting changed the outcome - I think in a non-tournament setting this would have been agreed as a 9/9/8/8 draw many years earlier when the traditional stalemate line was hit by a western (FG) and eastern (IR) alliance. I would definitely be willing to contri...

Has anybody solo'ed against the bots while playing Austria? If so, would you care to share the link to your game?

Haven't finished watching the video yet, but enjoying it so far.
