PREV  Winter 1914 Adjudication:  NEXT    

After fourteen years of gameplay and just about eight months of real life, we have a result in this game of Youngstown Diplomacy: China has triumphed! Due to what may be a combination of war weariness, ill communication, or bad fortune amongst the opposition forces, China only loses one centre (Bulgaria) while picking up five to exceed by one the thirty-seven centre threshold for victory.

I have the greatest respect for those who carried on in the game despite difficulties encountered. Italy (Mr. M. Boutot of Las Vegas) is foremost in my mind; despite losing his homeland early and never possessing more than six centres, he hung on through it all and has a well-deserved survival. But of course China (Mr. A. Beaumont of Canberra) deserves all the accolades after guiding a powerful Sino-Japanese alliance to his sole benefit, and in only his second DC game!

Please do provide your own comments and remarks; I would very much enjoy to hear players' thoughts as the game went on. I am also interested to know if you have any suggestions for me as a GM, or any other variants you might like to play. As I recall, this game filled up very quickly for a 10-player variant, suggesting a high demand for Youngstown—if you guys want another game of this, I'd be happy to oblige (though not immediately, I think).
