Thanks for the game. I think I got a bit lucky on this one and things seemed to unfold in my favour.

First of all Italy/Egypt has got to be one of the best combos in the game. Combined with a strong alliance with France and a lucky guess against Turkey to take Syria in Aut 01, I was able to take full control of the Med without much resistance. A three way NAP between Italy, France and Germany made it easy for me to expand into the Balkans without worrying about my defence too much.

Luckily for me, Germany dithered alot and eventually surrendered. This made it hard for France to expand, with no help against England and not being able to expand into Germany progress was alot slower than I had expected, allowing me to stay a long way ahead.

For most of the game France and I managed to persuade everyone that he had Egypt and me Rumania, this was very useful for keeping the other players guessing and played into my hands later on when Poland started messaging Egypt thinking it was France.

Overall a good game and apologies to France, I had intended to play for a two way draw but the opportunity for the solo was too good to turn down, especially when I got battered in my B game leaving me needing a solo to guarantee a place in the next round.

Thanks guys!
