Postby attitudes » 10 Jun 2013, 21:39

Spring 1908 results are posted. One auto destroy in Ankara. No retreats so we move directly to Fall 1908.

Going to speed things up a bit if you all don't mind - 48 hour deadline for Fall.

Deadline for Fall 1908 is Wednesday, June 12th at 1:00 pm Pacific time.

Aardvark is there something regarding our little wager that you want to say publicly now? Something about me being the greatest diplomacy player on earth?

Presser84 predicted that Lecrae would make the ho-hum, predictable, boooooooring move of bouncing in Kiel.

I said, "no! no! no! I'm sure Lecrae will want to go out with FLAIR, with FLOURISH, with PANACHE! I fear that he will do something bold and daring and outside-the-box, like, say, grabbing for Holland. I think he may want to do me harm, to make a "statement" of some sorts against me."

We argued mightily on this point. Almost came to blows. Threatened each other's grandmothers.

I was sooooooooo sure that Lecrae hadn't wasted all of our time and effort for two extra years just to do the most boring possible armadillo maneuver. I was SURE there was a diabolical scheme afoot. I was SURE of it!

Alas, Presser84, in his infinite wisdom and insight proved that he, not I, had the greater insight into the mind of Lecrae; that he, not I, had the prescient vision of moves to come**; that he, not I, deserves to end this game in the senior partner role.

I hereby declare, that for this brief and shimmering moment, Presser84 is the Greatest Diplomat ever!

Solemnly,

PM AardvarkArmy
Dublin

** but, hey, I guessed pretty good in Scandinavia, eh?

my trick was that Madrid said he would support me into Munich, I had nothing to do in Wes but move into Kiel, it is nothing special. Madrid, why did you lie in the first place?

Ummmmm.... just a guess.... maybe because Madrid and Vienna and Dublin have very obviously been solid allies for about 14 moves.

oh, I just believed him because he has never ied to me and their was no purpose to lie...AT ALL. I mean, I have this other thing that might go well with me, although it is not as big f a hope as Madrid. I know you guys are getting bored and want the three way, but at the very least, stab one of them for the two way!

Very good, you were able to divine the only plausible moves of a 2-center power. ;)
