PREV  Winter 1911 Adjudication:  NEXT    

Gentlemen, after a mere 255 days and eleven years, Poland has accomplished the solo victory, taking six centres to secure his hold on Europe! War weariness may have led into the assistance of Burgundy and Ukraine to enable the solo, despite the heroic eleventh-hour efforts of Israel, Sicily, and Spain. Eleven years of gameplay is a short time given the level of intricacy involved, and to pull off the coup so soon is a mark of something--vision, cunning, or otherwise--for which Chris rightfully deserves his third solo.

A big thank you to all of you for playing this game. It started a bit slowly, I know, but we got better as time went on. I would really like to thank Thomas (Israel) for stepping into the game after the first Israelite player NMRed. I feel like that turn may have decided the entire game and given Poland a small but important advantage, but the result of the game is wholly due to the actions of the players, not their dis-actions. After all is said and done, the board clearly shows that Poland managed to keep all his rivals down while he made his solo bid unburdened by a rival solo bid waiting if he faltered. And with all the draw proposals which came and went, I think the other players figured out what Poland had in mind, but perhaps too little, too late to stop the tide. The final Fall moves are provided below. Two units were dislodged this turn, but without any bearing on the final result so I gave them token retreats.

I would love to hear the players' thoughts on the game and on this variant. If there is any particular variant you would like to try, don't hesitate to tell me. I think I'll wait a bit before opening up a game as the others fill up and start moving.
