Gut Wrenching End Game

Postby Goatboy » 24 Jul 2017, 23:12

A couple months ago I played my most fun Diplomacy game yet, and I'm just now getting around to posting the fantastic end game shout box here for your enjoyment. It begins shortly after (we think) the game is wrapped up.

Some context. The three players in the end game where England, Russia, and France (me). The three of us were long time allies and heading for a 3 way draw - when I tried to puppet Austria and Turkey (who where hanging on by a thread and had serious grudges against Russia) and make the sprint for a solo. This backfired and led to me being compressed between English and Russian lines, the two going for a "two way draw". Many lessons were learned the hard way.

Shout box, starts at the bottom obviously
