905 6/20/2019 11:38:00 AM Winter 1919 Allies Message Just looking at the log, in five combats the NE army rolled three 1s and two 2s. No wonder I never made it to Damascus, lol. Cant complain about the dice though, as there were definitely rolls that went both ways.
I figured youd be able to take either Odessa or Riga, but very lucky getting the BR MO on T19 with LG in hand. Until then, I thought youd have to get both Odessa and Riga, which I figured would be highly unlikely. Nothing is ever certain though in this game....

903 6/20/2019 4:04:00 AM Winter 1919 Central Powers Message Agreed on your points.

There seemed to be many times one side almost broke.

There were a lot of plays I almost did something very different and struggled with the choice (very fun), including sending an army to Medina. I expected to loose Damascus but thought at least I can get Medina locked. The other interesting thing this game required was very careful deck and reshuffle timing management; I would have played Convoys if I pulled them on Turn 19 (turned out Loyd George worked). And Loyd George. It tuned out to work out but I really wanted to play Trench busters turn 19 to take Odessa but could not because it cancels the Loyd George effect. My original plan was to go for Basra. In the end game, the space I was most worried about you taking was Kiev.

Well played sir. We will meet again.

May only be played after "Zimmermann Telegram". Only the Allied player may offer Peace Terms for the rest of the game. Subtract 1 VP.

Message from Allies:
Yeah, nothing more I can do but play this, but obviously not enough. Congrats Tom, extremely well played on your part.

I should have never moved off Medina but thought at the time that I should be easily able to push to Damascus.

So many combats that seemed make-or-break, but just couldn't put the right string of them together. Congrats and good luck with the rest of the tournament.
900 6/19/2019 8:36:00 PM Winter 1919 Moderator Message Quite the ending, guys. I appreciate your pushing hard to finish this today!

I'll await Michael's confirmation before putting this 'in the books'.
899 6/19/2019 7:11:00 PM Winter 1919 Central Powers Message If I did not miss anything I think that is it. No VPs you can get on the last move.

Quite the game. A lot of different ways those last turn could have gone in both strategy and luck.
