DC205 EOG - bucksworld   (May 14, 2009, 10:03 pm)
Trout- Can't thank you enough for a magnificent job as GM. You kept the game running smoothly and I felt that you were as much a part of the game as any of the players.

After extensive analysis of my play as Turkey, I have concluded that my strategy and execution were flawless until Spring '02. About that time I opted to initiate an all out attack on Austria because he was a convenient easy target and Italy because, well, he was Italy and it's just what Turkey does. I felt comfortable with the plan because of my alliance with Russia knowing full well I could leave myself somewhat exposed without fear of being attacked by my ally. Silly me. Following the Russian stab, I spent the rest of the game in the fetal position trying to deny Joe the three Turkey spots and the solo. Nat was so totally focused on revenge that I couldn't get him to see the danger of a Russian solo.
After Scott entered the game and Russia's solo effort was effectively ended, Joe and Scott teamed up beautifully to stop France from soloing.

Then it became interesting. The game should have been over but it kept plodding along. Scott and Joe kept hammering France and the draws kept being turned down. I really thought Joe was the culprit and was getting set to try for the solo again. My suggestion that Russia and Italy hold in place to draw the game was ignored so I decided to force the issue by attacking both Joe and Scott. Silly me.

Well it's over. It was great fun, as always, and now it's on to the next adventure. I enjoyed the game very much and look forward to playing against everyone again in the future.

First of all - thanks to Trout for running the game and keeping it going, nicely done my friend.



I came on as a replacement in 1905 to an Italy in decent, but not great, shape.
Neighbors were talking, but not always saying much. Turkey was willing to
work, but Russia was another story. We got off to a shaky start and that was
the way it was for some time to come. So I started working with France and
Turkey and as things progressed Russia began to lose ground and France and
I gained some.

Once I realized how much France had grown and how good his chances actually
were for a solo I contacted Russia again and this time he was willing to work with
me. However, in this game (diplomacy) duplicity reigns supreme and as I got
Russia to move a certain way I let France know so he would move further away
from me and also be willing to move more units away from my front.

The strategy worked and I opted to try for the solo and worked accordingly.
I think I could have pulled it off too if Turkey hadn't pulled the stunt he did.
In the end I sensed the frustration the other players were feeling and opted
to vote yes to the draw proposal on the table.

Now - a confession - *I* was the one who had been voting the draws all down and almost
did so again. Almost. The lesson here is never to assume you *KNOW* who is voting
one way or the other. I was VERY apprehensive when the insults started flying over it
all. I would say I was sorry, but I really am not. After all, that IS part of the game and
I can't help it if some folks jump to the wrong conclusions. Hopefully this can all be put
behind us, as every game should, and look forward to another one in the future.

Nicely done gentlemen, it was a fun game.

Heya all!

The sailors are kissing the girls in the streets, or vice-versa... In Spring 1915, a three-way draw between France, Italy and Russia is unanimously agreed to. Our Sultan ekes out a survival for Turkey.


Congrats to Brian, Joe and Packrat for their shared draw. It was definitely a hard-fought battle. End-of-game statements from all players are heartily encouraged.


My thanks to all you guys for your efforts in this one, especially during those rough and bumpy stretches. I appreciated you folks always making the game entertaining. =)


Cheers everyone! See you all in the next game!

DC205 The Pleiades - Fall 1914 - Parallel Lines - former.trout   (May 04, 2009, 10:31 pm)
Heya folks,

The Turkish Resurgence continues, as Italy manages to hold them off in Rome but can only watch as the yellow forces pound their way into Bulgaria.  Meanwhile, France does the Finland Shuffle and Russia holds the line in Sevastopol.


No retreats are needed - and for Winter we have a pair of off-setting adjustments.  Turkey gets a build, Italy owes a disband.  Deadline for Winter 1914 will be set for Wednesday, May 6th (11:59 PM GMT).


Drop me a line if you see any mistakes.  Cheers all!

Neither end-game proposal meets unanimous consent and no retreats are needed.  So on we march merrily to the Fall turn.  Deadline is going to be set for Monday, May 4th (11:59 PM GMT).

Okay gentlemen here's how this one is going to go.

While I may have been willing and able to vote for the draw before I am
certainly NOT going to do so now. Turkey's actions against the people
of Italy cannot go unanswered. Therefore I WILL be voting no to both
proposals. So while we don't know who voted no before, we DO KNOW
now. This time it's me.

My spring orders are in and final. I challenge each of you to do the same.

Heya folks,

Apologies for the delay last night - was the GMs fault not the players. My senses got in the way of a couple bottles of wine - or vice versa... Either way, I regret the lapse.


With regards to the builds - its a fleet in Constantinople and an army in Smyrna. Easy as that, we move onto Spring 1914. Deadline will be set for Tuesday, April 28th (11:59 PM GMT).


In other news - there's been a flurry of proposals put forth. With your Spring orders, please let me know how you think about:
A) A Turkish Solo
B) A 4-way Draw


Finally, just a note about correspondance... Obviously there's no way I can control this - but I kindof view any correspondance between me and a player as confidential. On my end, I will NEVER forward or otherwise advise what has gone on between me and yourselves. Of course its completely your choice whether to follow similar practice but it would definitely be my preference if you did.

Sharp knives speak the loudest, as they say...  The Sultan puts the practice to work, doubling up in centers - reclaiming Ankara and occupying Naples...  Meanwhile, France offsets centers with both Italy and Russia maintaining the balance in the west...

One retreat was required after the smoke cleared - but there was only one option other than OTB.  I auto-retreated the French fleet in Spain to Portugal...  However, if OTB is required then please just let me know Brian.


Meanwhile, we have folks voting for draw proposals that have never been made...  So I hate to say it, but I guess those draws fail..  What can you do?  ...


The meter keeps on running...  We'll set Winter 1913 adjustments due for Wednesday, April 22nd (11:59 PM GMT).

Heya folks.

Now don't get me wrong..  I love family.  But honestly - don't weekend long family get-togethers just physically and mentally exhaust you?  Holy smokes...


Hope everyone had as great an Easter as I did.  *evil grin*  =P


So speaks the big jerk.  Now, onto the game.  No retreats are needed, but some of the French corners are beginning to show wear as the good people of Munich must once again put on their Russian hats.  Those big furry ones the size of bowling balls.  Yeah, those.


As for the DIAS proposal, well, one or more of you fine generals have said that they want more blood and violence.  Easter carnage is apparently great for business.  So onwards we go!!  Deadline for Fall 1913 mayhem will be set for Monday, April 20th (11:59 PM GMT).

Heya guys,

Guess I really wasn't thinking when I set the deadline for Spring 1913.  Looks as though I set it right for the middle of Easter Weekend.  Not a very bright idea, and currently I'm getting head-noogies from the Easter Bunny because of it.  Man that bunny is mean.  =P


We'll revise the Spring deadline so that it falls outside of the holiday weekend.  Please have orders in to me by Monday, April 13th (11:59 PM GMT).


Thanks and Happy Easter.  Now get this damn bunny off me!!  =)

Heya all,

I guess some of you are waiting for this adjudication with baited breath.  Baited.  Breath.  Either that, or someone snuck Darth Vader into my closet without telling me.  =P


New armies are formed in Warsaw and Rome, and the French disband in Denmark.  That's the fast and furious for this Winter.  Deadline for Spring 1913 orders will be set for Saturday, April 11th (11:59 PM GMT).


Also, on the diplomatic front - a 4-way draw between France, Italy, Russia and Turkey has been proposed.  Please have your yay or nay votes for the 4-way DIAS with your Spring orders.  (Lack of a vote will count as a no.)  


Cheers Vader fans!

Hey folks,

Please find attached the corrected Fall 1912 orders and map - complete with the Russian move from Finland to Norway.  Now, I believe that I might actually have this one correct.  =)


Unfortunately, I have not yet received any retreats from France.  Assuming that the GMs act should be together before the players, I'll revise the Early Winter 1912 deadline for one more day.  The Marseilles retreat will be due by Saturday, Apr 4th (11:59 PM GMT) or it will be sent OTB.


Cheers everyone.  Won't mind admitting that this is one adjudication that I'll be happy to put behind me.  =P

DC205 - Is your GM really that dumb?! - packrat   (Apr 02, 2009, 12:37 am)
Actually, if that is correct then I think STP was actually *ordered* to Finland to
cut support. So STP *moves* to Finland and MAR is the only needed retreat.

The attached map IS NOT by any means official, but I believe it is accurate up to
the point of the needed retreat. However, I put it in the same place Trout had it
on the prior map he sent out.

The answer, of course, is yes. *sigh*

In my correction last night, I failed to move the correct submitted order for Russia's army in Finland. It was ordered to Norway, NOT to Sweden as I published. That of course changes things up a little, as Russia takes Norway from France.


What an awful adjudication, I'm sorry folks. A corrected and revised map will be sent out tomorrow night with the French retreats. Please note that the French army in St. Petersburg can no longer retreat to Norway, but must retreat to either Finland or OTB.

Different orders from the Russians, with the result of the exactly the same map.  Sorry for the delay in getting out the revised turn to you all - had less time than I anticipated during the day.  We'll await the French retreats from St Petes and Marseilles but reset the deadline for Thursday, April 2nd (11:59 PM GMT).


(I'd adjudicate early if I could tomorrow, but only have a limited window on Wednesday night due to other commitments.  So just to be safe we'll wait until Thursday evening.)

It's like a tug-of-war out there.  Wow.  Italy gains Marseilles and Russia retakes St. Petersburg.  However, France gets some kicks in as well, disbanding the Italians in Munich and keeping the stranglehold on Sweden.  Net result is two retreats owed from France and builds due from both the French and the Italians.

We'll do the retreats first.  Deadline for Early Winter 12 will be set for Wednesday, April 1st (11:59 PM GMT).


Let me know if you spot any errors.  Cheers!

DC205 The Pleiades - Spring 1912 - Bouncin Like Th... - former.trout   (Mar 24, 2009, 2:30 am)
You know...  The one with the cymbals.  =P

The DIAS is voted down, and little movement is seen on the board with the exception of the Scandinavias.  Nontheless, we groove on heartily into the Fall 12 turn.  Deadline will be set for Monday, March 30th (11:59 PM GMT).


Let me know if you spot any errors.  Cheers gang!
