Guys,



Due to increasing time pressures I'd like to put out that I'm also now
willing to accept any draw proposed.  While I've enjoyed this game a lot,
I'm really feeling the pressure with placements now and I'm worried about
missing deadlines - I really don't want that to happen.  Normally I'd try to
stick this out and just let Mike and Garry lead the tactical stuff, but with
Nigs also wanting to resolve things I think it's better to end things here
than try to grind out a resolution when we can all see which way things are
going.



From my point of view, if this alliance held, the game would end in a
three-way.  I think it virtually certain that we would break out and overrun
Greece.  However, I don't think this game should necessarily be taken as an
indication of what could normally be expecte to happen.  I think the main
reason this alliance has held so far is that it looks like it shouldn't work
and a new variant is an opportunity to test crazy stuff.  If this variant
becomes more popular - which, with a few revisions, I think it has the
potential to - I think the BSR alliance is about as likely to hold stable as
an AIT in Standard.  It can be made to work, but it's not one I think you'd
see cropping up often.



Anyway, that's my position.  Could I count this as an ongoing, permenant yes
vote for any draw proposed?



Thanks,



Ross

Diplomacy games may contain lying, stabbing, or deliberately deceiving communications that may not be suitable for and may pose a hazard to young children, gullible adults, and small farm animals.
