Tor flee into the waiting embrace of their French cousins in Quebec, and successfully hide among them using attics, basements, and a dizzying array of trap doors and hidden rooms.

Mon retire to New England, moving into a smaller than they thought it would be condo in Connecticut in an area that isn't quite as nice as it first looked.


On a slightly more serious note, I would implore one of the remaining smaller powers who hasn't voted yet to turn down the draw. This is an exciting variant--lets see if someone can solo it!

Mexico retreat: Fleet GoG retreats to GoP

Morg - from your perspective then, given the (tragic) annihilation of the Americans in the Great Canadian Massacre, is the draw proposal still valid and pending responses from the other remaining players?

I am happy to repropose the same draw now in our post-USA world, but I think since he was eliminated the same turn of the draw proposal perhaps that could be unnecessary.

And in response to nanook's plea - a solo isn't an option. I haven't the armies to take on either Mexico or Peru; Mexico would have a very hard job fighting his way out of that corner; and if one of the three of us looked like going for it the other two - backed (hopefully) by the other survivors, are quite strong enough to stop the one. And I know the play of the other two to know that there would be no problem at all in two of us getting together to stop a solo.

It's the classic three-power finish. Very rarely is there a hope of a solo. And sorry if it spoils your dreams nanook, but if it's any consolation it was probably the excellent defence put up by you and Britain which scuppered any chance I had of soloing. You held me up far too long.

But if I were GM I would certainly say that US rejection still counts. So now he's officially gone, I'll do it again! See new thread

I'm sure that's all true...I still would like to see an attempt made...but more for entertainment purposes than anything else...I'll take the sort of flattery and call it a day though ;)

Good game to everyone, especially Pedros. I saw Britain coming, I had a nagging feeling about Mexico, but you caught me by surprise. It's not surprising to me that two of the three winners came out of the Northern half of the map. It was a real murderers row (plus me) up here, and while I do believe I could have done better, I gave it what I had and came up short. Then I clawed and scratched and bit and kicked and made myself a general pain in the ass :twisted:

All in all a very fun game, and one I hope gets some traction towards joining the main site one of these days!
