All,

I congratulate the winners of this game and while I have the highest respect for
their play, I believe that there is need for some serious "self-criticism."

In particular, I must sincerely apologize to Fredrik who is an experienced and
cooperative partner that likewise had a very strong position in this game when I
came on board. As Matt has pointed out, the alliances were pretty much
pre-ordained and Fredrik and I agreed to work together in a game that appeared
on the verge of a stalemated draw, unless someone made some pretty big mistakes.


Well, I made those mistakes--in short order--and poor Fredrik could do nothing
but stand by and watch as my act of seppuku turned into a murder-suicide. Given
the circumstances, it's a shame that Fredrik will not be able to participate in
this draw. I am sorry Fredrik!

Finally, my apologies rest of the players. While you all played well and some of
you had a satisfactory outcome to this one, I didn't hold up my end of the
bargain as a replacement player. This is an excellent version of the game and I
didn't make it is as competitive as it should have been.


My thanks to Mike for GMing the game and again, my congratulations to the rest
of you.

Best regards.

Bruce

Gents,

So to be honest I don't have that much to say about this game as not that much
ever developed from my point of view once I joined the game.  When I initially
came into the game it was clear from the map and the game's history that Cho and
Mori were allied, but what was not clear was the closeness of Jim and Garry's
cooperation.  Had Jim been the only ally I inherited from my predecessor I may
have been able to shape a bit of my own direction in this game (both U and H
seemed willing to work with me at the beginning), but with my stretched out
position I really had no choice but to keep the alliance with Jim and Garry and
continue attacking Hojo.  Not that there was anything wrong with this as, other
than that one season where a lack of communication caused some stab fears, they
were great allies and we obviously did well, but it just wasn't interesting as
it might have been.

Thanks and congrats to Jim and Garry for seeing this through to well-deserved
draw with me and for Bruce and Fredrik for sticking it out to the end.  And of
course thanks to Ben and then Mike.

Matt

PS: Mike can I get added to the Light Brigade for this?  It was a while before
this that I last took a replacement position but I'd like to do it more often...

Diplomacy games may contain lying, stabbing, or deliberately deceiving communications that may not be suitable for and may pose a hazard to young children, gullible adults, and small farm animals.
