Thanks Bill.

The one thing that bugs me the most in this game is my misorder in Spring of '13, when I moved the wrong fleet in the Mediterranean. Had I ordered the moves correctly this would have been a much shorter war (FYI: GoL should have moved instead of TyS).

Bill, I think that had you not focused so much on the Mediterranean situation you could have brought some more troops into the Baltic area faster which would have stopped me from getting to the solo.

Key areas for me this game were Munich and Prussia. Munich stopped you from entering east. Prussia allowed me to move up through Russia.

Congratulations to Fredrik!  I missed most of the interesting parts of the game, but the endgame had enough intrigue to keep me excited.
He seized the beautiful ground firstest with the mostest.  I had recognized that I was essentially fighting a delay since I joined this game.  I simply couldn't get enough combat power into the Baltic fast enough to breakthrough anywhere.  The Fall that I seized Kiel and Joshua disbanded his German units was in my opinion the end of the game.  I considered trying to eliminate Pat and Joshua to maximize my points, but just couldn't justify handing Fredrik a victory.  Joshua did even better than I expected at delaying the Austrian conquest of the Russian heartland.  We made him work for it; Fredrik earned the victory.  Kudos. 
Cheers all!

Heya folks!

The Arch-duke in red holds onto Moscow and the banners go up as Fall 1912 rolls around, Austria victorious.  A hearty congratulations go to Fredrik for coming into the game and marching the position straight to a win.  Hats off to our three survivors as well, though - Bill, Joshua and Pat.  This game had it all - drama, passion and face-bending excitement.  =)

There was one minor piece of business to take care of before the ribbon ceremony - the Russian unit in Norway was dislodged and forced to retreat.  With only Finland available however, and with the game ending, I took the liberty and moved the piece there.  (Joshua, if for some reason you'd prefer the piece to be removed on the final map then just let me know and I'll send out a correction.)

End-of-game statements are, of course, welcome and highly encouraged.  My thanks to all of you players for taking part in the war effort.  And with a happy heart, we sign the peace - though we know the next set-to is just around the corner.  

Cheers everyone.  Again, let us know what you think about the way things went with an EOG statement, if you'd like.  See you all in the next one!
