45 5/20/2020 4:18:00 AM 1757 Early Season Britain Message Below this comment is my snarky-sounding argument but of course its just a fun game to create some metaphysical tension, so I'll drop out this round, but I'm fine the next two - to which I committed.
(Looks like good company in the one loss category now - Paul G and Mike U!
...Keith has recaptured Niagara so looks like he is fine;)

Hope all is going well with William, take care, you are welcome to have the win - as the new player who isn't familiar with the nomenclature etc plus the possibility of a genuine misunderstanding so enjoy the rest of the tourney.

.... but No & No ..

The ground rules which were agreed upon decide not arbitrary intervention.

12 weeks, a move a day.

Basically a move a day with a 20 day leeway, but if one person takes 3 days Chess Clock - wise that is 2-3 days taken from the opponent.

"Slow play will result in disqualification... and award a victory if the deadline cannot be made."

60 Days remaining, I have 15 days minimum as leeway, 47 moves remaining//

Last 3 moves have taken 21 days...a move a week..

Also Game 2-18 was declared a no-show after - slightly less than 10 days.

But as mentioned above these are just numbers, but that's not a priority.

However this "game" is defunct.

BTW nice photo!
23 4/27/2020 5:04:00 AM 1757 Early Season Britain Message It's standard to only give exact descriptions of the smaller break-off force - to minimize transcription errors and not overload the senses (I presume)...

...in this case there wasn't - so I actually gave a little extra info which obviously ended up making you second guess whether there was a stay behind force ...!

(.. somewhere there is a road paved with good intentions..)

Image file sent of move and changes from set-up only.

(Might also be best if we keep track of unit designations where possible as well..)

18 4/25/2020 9:00:00 AM 1757 Early Season Britain Message Viginians seeing themself as new world royalty created an interesting sequel later for sure.

Loudoun seemingly wanted to invade directly Halifax -> Quebec, but was overruled by Pitt. Would make an interesting option in the 55 scenario, maybe a die roll for success and/or losses.

12 4/24/2020 1:03:00 PM 1757 Early Season France Message If memory serves me correctly, I believe Loudoun was relieved after the French captured Fort Henry, so this seems historical enough … as an aside I lived for many years just outside Loudoun County in Virginia, named for this gentleman ...
