Fall 1921 and game over!

Congratulations to WarSmith on a crushing victory over the Zombies and everybody else! And to sjg11 who managed to survive; Netr0 still possessed an SC although he was technically eliminated.

For me the most convincing aspect of WarSmith's victory wasn't the numbers - 26 SCs at the end, with another 3 which would have counted had it gone to the Build phase - but the fact that in the whole game I can't remember a single instance where he allowed himself to fall foul of the Zombies. Everybody else who played will realise what an achievement this was.

Well good. Back when I was just in Portugal, my main goal was to ensure that this game didn't end in a fracking two-way draw. (How LAME would that have been?)
SOLO- Baltic, Double Diplomacy
Draw- Layered, Dip Lite, 1700, Zeus, Simple, 1900 S&S
Loss- Some games

Well, strictly between us, I was putting the odds at about 200-1 against (except when it was dragging on year after year)! Manufacturing a draw with these rules (kill the last in Zombie in the Fall you don't get builds is extremely tricky!)

Btw I wasn't in this game :S
If you can, win.
If you can't, draw.
If you stab, succeed.
