303 9/27/2019 12:17:00 PM Turn 7 USSR Message That sounds like it would have been painful.
I guess I am up for another game. Was kind of put of by the bad rolling, but I would like the chance for redemption.

Either side is okay with me.
302 9/27/2019 11:10:00 AM Turn 7 US Message coming up next tthe rest of this round I was going to Space Willy Brandt and on final Action play Stop worrying for my Mil OPs and raise DEFCON to 5.

Then I was going to Headline Bear Trap and hopefully not allow you to Coup first then I was going to Realign you out of France.
301 9/27/2019 11:05:00 AM Turn 7 US Message Your die rolls have been awful. My card draws have been great. I got the card I despise most in the game (overpowered IMO) Decolonization twice and chucked it to Space Race both times.

Maybe a rematch switching sides?
300 9/27/2019 9:30:00 AM Turn 7 USSR Message I have it that you did it correctly.
Angola is 3*-0 and Mexico is 1-0

I'm not one to blame dice, but the rolling this game has been absurd. I don't think there is any for me to pull this one out, so I will go ahead and concede.

You played well.
299 9/27/2019 7:04:00 AM Turn 7 US Message Forget all that. I can't do the easiest math or I misread Angola roll for Mexico maybe.
Return to results of 293-5
298 9/27/2019 1:38:00 AM Turn 7 US Message If you agree to it I'll put your 2 back in Angola and clear out Mexico. If I had scored it properly I would rolled there a second time. Up to you.
