Their scores are also here.

Other than th14jkjoe's auto_surrender at the very end of the game, the only surrender was by Cheeseman4780. Thanks to mrlazy1997 for filling in and to everyone else for sticking it out through the length of the game.

Game created 24 March (25 Mar in GMT +1), started 26 March, and finished 24 May (25 May in GMT +1).

Quite the unfortunate loss for th14jkjoe, who said:
TURKEY (Spring 1938)
Sorry all- under normal circumstances I'd be willing to accept this draw. Unfortunately my other tournament game went quite poorly, so I need to at least try for a two-way or solo here if I want to advance.

Looks like Poland is the country to have in Versailles - perhaps with Sweden as your second country

Not quite, I'm keeping track of all the tournament games and Poland totals 5th out of the 7 in SC totals. So far France is the country to have, Germany has done the worst out of the majors. Surprisingly (to me) Egypt has done the best out of all the minors, with Czech doing the worst.

This is based on the 18 completed tournament games.

I think they're all good countries, with the exception of Germany who seems a bit weak.
I think Sweden is a great minor too.
I was really lucky to get Spain in this game and then I used Spain to harass England - sorry Mambam! That was so fun though, using my minor in such a secret way. Turkey was shocked when I revealed that my minor was Spain.

Glacier777 glad to see you got the two way draw here! Makes me feel better about how B4 turned out for you. Congrats. Maybe we'll run into each other in round two...

You're definitely one of the ones to watch, getting a three way and a solo. There was a point in this game where I could have stabbed Turkey much like you stabbed me but I couldn't bring myself to do it!
Good luck with you C and D games.
