584 9/8/2020 10:03:00 AM Spring 1917 Central Powers Message Thanks, Tom! I really appreciate the work you and the other moderators put into this tournament. I had a lot of fun and am looking forward to the next one (in a couple years, I guess).
583 9/7/2020 10:02:00 PM Spring 1917 Moderator Message Congrats on your win, John, see you in Round 6 in the fall.

Brian - Congrats on making it to round 5, hope you had fun in this event. You matched up with one of the premier AP players this round - hopefully that did not dull your fervor for more POG in the future!
582 9/4/2020 11:06:00 AM Spring 1917 Allies Message Thanks for the game, very good and your strategy could have worked, if you had watched your losses. I reckon, ballpark, you cannot afford to get above 20-25 German steps off map or you will be battling to catch up. Strangely it was the successful Russian break through that killed you.

You played well, and if you had slowed and kept playing RP cards earlier, you might have done it.

Enjoyed the game and thank you.
581 9/4/2020 10:56:00 AM Spring 1917 Allies Message Fr (7) and RP C elim (1,0).

580 9/4/2020 10:52:00 AM Spring 1917 Central Powers Message Well, as much as enjoy playing this game at a certain point I have to admit I'm beaten! As has been clear for a few turns, there's really no way I can catch up in the war of attrition, even if you don't technically beat me this turn.

Good game, John! Clearly whatever beginner's luck that got me through the first couple rounds of this tournament has run out in the face of much superior opponents. I definitely learned a lot, though. Hope we can play again some time! Best of luck in the rest of the tournament!
