Vote is unanimous 4 of 4, we have a Persian victory here!

Congrats to John, the new intern in the “I soloed my first game at dc” club. A tough place to get into, since we all only get one shot at a first game…

Ya know this game seemed to have its challenges, perhaps some newer players for a variant, whereas variants tend to more often draw some regulars instead. And then around mid-game, I got hit pretty hard in real life and I ran a few turns a few days late, and that seemed to be a drag on the momentum.

If I have any advice for y’all going forward, *turn in prelims*. There were so many turns when I was short a set of orders or two. Just pick something – anything – when you get the results, and turn them in, then revise as the turn goes along. It really helps to keep the game moving.

Other than that, let’s see… so far this game has been played twice, and it’s ended in a solo both times. Very rare! What is it about this map that makes it so solo-prone? Once for Sparta and once for Persia now. See the history…

EGS’s (End-Game-Statements) would be appreciated from all! Any thoughts on the variant? The game? Anything else?

I’m pretty happy to wrap it up, since I’ll have my hands full w the upcoming Winter Blitz tournament. If you’re not already in, be sure to check it out. This is the first year we’ve had a sponsor!

Enjoy, and see you next game!
