AAR: Russian Solo Win in High-Level Gunboat

My friends, I've published a new article today. It is part 1 of a two-part series. In these articles, I discuss how I was able to get a solo win as Russia in a high level gunboat match.

This is maybe 30% my musings on Russian strategy in gunboat, and 70% After Action Report. Not as thorough as my journals, but more detailed than your typical AAR.

A Winning Strategy for Russia in Gunboat Diplomacy

Thanks. This is very well written. I have never played much gunboat myself because I always thought it was kind of boring and not very diplomatic in a way that I like from the full press games. But you do a good job of showing off the strategy going on in gunboat which makes it significantly more interesting.

I always really enjoy your blog posts, thank you! I've never been much of a gunboat fan myself, either, but I can appreciate the level of thought and strategy required (and I'm sure I'd improve a lot as a Diplomacy player if I took the time to get decent at gunboat, too!)

Thank you all for your kind words! I really appreciate hearing that. Gunboat is one of my favorite games, and I'm glad I made it seem interesting enough to at least think about. It's not every day someone says they don't care for the topic you're writing about but they liked the writing anyways!

Here's Part 2!!
