06.00 August 4 : And huge congratulations to thewysecat

Possibly the most overwhelming victory in the history of Diplomacy, as a result of the definite finish time, and thewysecat almost manages to leave the opposition without a point between them.

Final scores as follows (game points = northern SCs times southern SCs):-
Royals: SCs north 0, SCs south 2, Units 1, game score 0
Nurses: SCs north 26, SCs south 10, Units 26, game score 260
East Enders: SCs north 7, SCs south 1, Units 9, game score 7
Taxi Drivers: SCs north 0, SCs south 2, Units 1, game score 0

My impression was that anybody playing as the Nurses would have had a big advantage from their ability to put a double unit at whatever point they chose each turn, but nevertheless I agree totally with WarSmith that thewysecat maximised his advantage at every turn.

Royals (WarSmith)
One has been most amused with tonight's frolics and jubilation, and enjoyed the general dash around some of the most scenic parts of our great city, but in consideration that some of the lower classes have run slightly beyond the principles of 'a bit of horseplay'... one is executing of of our monarchy's last remaining powers...
The Queen hereby abolishes parliament, repeals the laws which created the NHS (thus rendering all Nurses unemployed), summons the Army to clear the streets and at high tide will also turn the secret lever that we've kept in the thames barrier for such occasions, thus flooding the east-end.
I win! Yipee!
Now, lets get back to that hunt in richmond park before all the deer run orf.

Knightsbridge move palace gdns (Pedros this counts as force of 2 no?) {I don't think so WarSmith - we didn't make a definitive decision in the opening discussion, but the general line was that the fort is just that, not a unit supporting the Royals. Fortunately it doesn't make anmy difference to the outcome!} Dislodged 1-2 : Destroyed

The flexible 2A is defainately the best advantage of any of the powers in the game, but Wyse deserves it for other reasons too...
Problem is, if I ever play this again its gonna be 'all kill the nurses' from the start.
