Spring 2002

The Turkish juggernaut rolls steadily westwards (and north into Scandinbavia), but the Italian armies still find time to attack in the West. Just one retreat - Spain from Navarra. Retreat please by 0830 GMT on Tuesday 21 January.

There seems to be a wing missing in Croatia.



But guys, are you just going to continue fighting each other?

My solo is pretty inevitable now. I need 4 more centers and will take at least GDA, Serbia and Libya. I might well take one more. If not this year then certainly the next, since I'm pushing all over the map.

So let's save everybody some time. I propose a solo victory for me.
Draw in Diplomacy Stew 2, playing Italy
Winner Four Seasons, playing England
Draw in Layered, playing Yellow (Russia + Turkey)
Winner Shuffle, playing Turkey
Winner Vain Rats 4, playing France

... but first you must learn how to smile as you kill.

Actually, I think it's 5 to win (33 of 64 and you're on 28). That said, I think you've probably got it, but I'm prepared to let Italy at least play out the year to see what defence he can muster. If Italy concedes, I will, but not before.

I've noticed this turn has thrown up a perhaps odd (but certainly not invalid) consequence of the interception rules (and I'm sorry if this has been discussed in the past before I joined) - in a clash, all wings are intercepted regardless of the number of them involved. So Turkey this turn intercepted 3 Italian wings with just one of his own. I can't possibly think of a fair and consistent way of altering the rules to avoid this sort of thing, so there's nothing wrong with the rules, but it just struck me as something of an oddity in that weight of force plays no effect.

I am willing to concede victory to the Turk. I don't believe his solo could be stopped at this point. Good game everyone. I'd be curious to see others AARs and will be posting one myself when I have a bit more time.

Just to note that ColesD is right - 33 for the solo.

I can't put my finger on it, but I swear the map looked different before. It's almost as if I'm looking at a whole different game :)

Yeah, it's an odd feeling isn't it :) ?

I know you always put at least one mistake in your adjudications to keep us sharp and paying attention, but this one was a bit obvious :)
