Once again a lot of movement; these black holes make for an incredibly flexible game. One retreat needed - France from Norway. Retreat please by 1700 GMT (1200 EST) on Wednesday 21 November

France: Norway - North Sea.

And Pumpkin's first season fighting for the solo doesn't give him the luck he wanted: Serbia goes, taking with it an Italian army. On the other hand, the victory target is reduced to 14 SCs! Orders for Fall 1911 are due by 1800 GMT (1300 EST) on Friday 23 November

Note - Greece and Bulgaria have gained a seond coast each (true - although Bulgaria had two coasts marked before, the old east coast disappeared with the Black Sea, many moons ago!)

I don't think Greece actually has a second coast: the "north coast" still connects to ION, just like the "south coast."

See Spain connecting to MAO around Portugal as a counter example; that does exactly what Pedros said.

Yes. From the NC of Greece one cannot access the Aegean Sea or the SC of Bulgaria, while from the Greek SC one cannot reach Naples, Rome, Venice, Tyrolia, Vienna, Budapest, Rumania or the WC of Rumania. If the Ionian and Aegean Sea turned into Black Holes, Greece would then have only a single coast. On an unrelated note, how often do you see Italy forcing France out of Norway? :D

I should have got Austria to defend it from Swe then it really would be unusual

Yup, my mistake about Greece.

This variant isn't really comparable to standard Dip, but even so, I think things are extra weird because of my scattered approach in the early going.
