So, final board is hogjest score on that board wins the tournament. Effectively, whoever has the most centers.

If there’s a tie, then it’s determined by order of country selection (which I don’t remember except that Hack picked last).

I don’t think that’s accurate. I’m pretty sure the tiebreaker is order of country selection. Which was done with the Paris Method, I think.

Lol looks like England did actually just stab France. France had a good chance the year before and turned it down. France is probably gonna let Italy break through the south now after disbanding Mar.

Awesome that happened this year, when Russia realized it would be better for him to still have that German unit around the stalemate line aligned with him. Awesome that Conq was able to eek out another year. Still in an important spot.

But also looks like Italy stabbed Russia, which is bad for Conq's chances.

Looks like a really interesting game. I love the flow of face to face games when they get like this. I've only played maybe three or five games with seven players face to face, but it's so different.

Good game here.

Haha and then England just supports Russia to Munich.

Conq's only chance now is some strongarm deal with Russia where he maybe offers to try to support Tyrolia to Trieste to try to weaken Italy. England probably wants this too, to try to distract Italy and stop him streaming west, which France is seemingly just giving him.

Looks as though France may be throwing his dots to Italy.

That's why I didn't think England would stab France in that scenario. What else was France going to do?

But at least England has assured this will be a race between him and Italy to see who gets the most dots. England really used Russia and turned around and discarded him very effectively this year to also get Munich.

It's a question of how much France can help Italy get the edge this year. And how Russia reacts.

If everyone is more mad at England than Italy at the moment, maybe that tips the balance to Italy. I don't see how anyone trusts England this year.

Looks like Russia is potentially Kingmaker too.

Yea Pootle. He's probably more mad at England than he is at Italy, though he's in a better position to actually fight and gain against Italy. So to kingmake FOR Italy, he basically has to be more passive and just try to hold the center against England while Italy can likely take Por and Brest this year. He could also try to help France keep Paris from falling to England if he wants.

But Russia may still be in Fight Italy mode. We'll see.
