PREV  Fall 1910 Adjudication:  NEXT    

After 10 hard fought years, dc220, “Back from the Dead” is called a 5-way DIAS between AEFRT. I never had the pleasure of meeting Italy or Germany, but the 5 who remained showed a great desire to not only revitalize the game, but play it out to a conclusion.

It’s interesting that the 3 small powers managed to carve out a corner for survival, and barring deliberate EF cooperation they were all pretty sure to see this one to a final placing.

Even more interesting is that earlier powers bailed on those small powers that ended up sharing in the draw! This game is absolute evidence that it always pays to play out a game - with some good planning and creative diplomacy a game should never be shot.

Congrats to all! Be sure to post an EGS.

Fall orders are not revealed since we have 5 yes-votes to a DIAS.
See you next game!
Enjoy,

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.
