Hey Stabbers,

Here we are beginning year 13 of our little contretemps. Will it be lucky 13 for one of our two witches?  Let's see.

Again we have fighting from Kiel in the north to Tunis in the south.  This time, however, it appears that one of our players actually made progress, as English forces managed to trap and destroy a Turkish army in Ruhr.

(For those of you with an interest in the mechanics of Stab!, please note that this is the first time that I've actually stated right out that a unit has been destroyed.  Why is that?  There have been multiple times in the past where a unit has been dislodged with no retreat.  Well, the difference between then and now is that this time every single surrounding space is not only occupied, but
visible to all remaining players.)

Will this small victory turn out to be the difference-maker in our grand war?  Tune in next week when the Fall moves are revealed.

RETREATS:  None Required

NEXT DEADLINE:  Fall 1913 is due Tuesday, August 3, at 8 pm Eastern US time.  As usual, I can adjudicate early if I get final orders from both players.

Cheers,
Chris

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.
