556 3/9/2020 8:33:00 PM Spring 1917 Moderator Message The fates have spoken, a 32 was rolled, AP wins. Pat - see you in round 4, Trevor thanks for participating.

The GMs hate to see games end this way but we'll leave this game open should wish to play it out. (Will end up re-titling the game but this won't impact your ability to play.)
555 3/9/2020 8:30:00 PM Spring 1917 Moderator Message OK, gentlemen, a roll off will be conducted in the GM log for this match. The position doesn't overwhelmingly favor one side or the other but the time usage is very lopsided with the CP having consumed a disproportionate amout of time. 55-45, AP favor. Will post result back here, die roll being made in admin log.

551 3/6/2020 5:37:00 PM Spring 1917 Allies Message You need to get 13 to win, so with the two blockade points, you will need five more VPs. I doubt that you will hold Antwerp at the end, so that can be another. I think I have the edge at the moment, but let’s see what the GMs say.
550 3/6/2020 5:15:00 PM Spring 1917 Central Powers Message I really enjoying this game, and I'm really happy to continue once the time limit comes up, but I guess we have to make our submission to Tom and co re the game position - I think we're in quite even positions here - all the fronts are locked apart from:

- the arrival of NE Army in Egypt will sharpen things up in the Middle East, but then I have both Turkish armies in play, and lots of GEc and BUc spare, so I feel as though I can hold Allenby off ...

- now Salonika is dealt with I have 2 (maybe 3) armies in the Balkans to try and overload the Eastern, Western or Italian Front ...

- Bringing the Romanians in will cost me a turn, but likely end up giving me 2VPs and risking the Russians being outflanked in the South ...

- We're a long way away from Russian Revolution or US Entry, so probably neither will happen ...

- VPs on the current game board are 10, with 2 more Blockades, so I need 3 to get to a win. Both Warsaw and Lemberg are pretty vulnerable ...

So it all points to a very close match unless I can get my spare Balkan armies into a position to overload somewhere - most probably Italy ...

So to be honest, my proposal to Tom would be that they should flip a coin to see who wins. I'm no PoG shark, I've been beaten plenty of times, sometimes without seeing it coming, so I could easily be wrong in my analysis though!

What do you think?
