Just saw the erstwhile EFI are all signed up together again. Hopefully nobody bears grudges. ;)

And it's anonymous countries anyway.

Turkey laid out why this wouldn't work, and suggested going back to the FIT plan. But figuring she'd pretty much trashed that assurance, she settled.

There was a lot of things you could've done. I don't think you were in any danger of getting immediately overpowered, so fixing FIT wouldn't have been too hard to accomplish. If you were serious about soloing you probably would've had to convince either Turkey or me to stab the other. I'm not really sure how, but I've seen weirder things happening.

Sometimes you play against bad players, such as me, who have managed to anger half the board and you can use it to your advantage, but overall you need a pretty solid plan to get to 18, as once you attempt it everyone should ally against you.

I know I said that I was going to take a break from Diplomacy... but I've been a lot less busy lately compared to a week or two ago, so I guess one more game won't hurt.

I don't think anyone bears grudges because of this game though, or at least I hope they don't. I've been complaining a lot, but remember that AARs are supposed to be kind of cathartic. The funniest thing to me here was that you didn't even do anything besides post in the public press that you were going to attempt to solo, which is rather weak as far as stabs go. :lol:

I built F Mar, figured that was basically a declaration of war.

I'm still not always so good at this game you know. :)

I'm hoping I remember how to actually play without doing something stupid (like revealing E/F/I) thanks to my involvement in this beautiful game. I feel like it was a solid reminder of what not to do/how to actually play.

You managed to convince England to move back after stabbing you, I think you're good enough to take back a declaration of war or two. ;)
