There is currently a draw proposal on the table in game 3.2

Go check it out!

It's probably the worst stalemate line I have ever seen.

I'm mildly curious if either I or R will try for a solo push once it gets closer to 17/17 tbh. It also makes perfect sense why the more minor powers are at least trying to die with centers intact.

3.1 looks like either I/A or maybe I/A/E? France got demolished by Italy this past turn, I don't see that as particularly recoverable.

2.2 France making the smart play to try and at least salvage tiebreaker centers even in defeat; the question is whether any of I/G/A want to go for the solo or invest extra time in grabbing extra tiebreaker points

2.1 {comment redacted}

1.3 looks like F/A/R?

1.2 either that's F/G/R heading to endgame or there's shenanigans incoming, not sure which tbh

1.1 looks like an E/T?

too lazy to bother skimming the others lol

FYI ladies and gents, 2.2 is now ending as I write, as everyone agreed on the Central Triple draw under the current situation on the board! I will start my part of the AAR next week.

Smart player that France ;)

Although not smart enough to avoid ending up in that situation in the first place!

G had several chances to go for the solo they passed up on. They had a very good shot at it if they'd wanted it. I'm a bit surprised they called it early, but not because anyone had solo ambitions, because I expected them to want to kill France all the way. This was an extremely disappointing game for me just in the pure lack of ambition shown, and in that me and JOE should've run this board but we ended up with this result instead.
