565 1/26/2021 6:24:00 PM Summer 1917 Central Powers Message Absolutely, that would be great! Start it up whenever you are ready. I am in charge of cooking this evening and so will likely respond tonight or tomorrow.
564 1/26/2021 6:12:00 PM Summer 1917 Allies Message Thanks for the game and the kind words.
I've also enjoyed playing against you.
Do you want to play another with opposite sides?
563 1/26/2021 6:04:00 PM Summer 1917 Central Powers Message Thomas, great game! I'm going to resign here as things have now slipped out of not only the winnable zone and the "at least I'm learning things" zone, and into the Senseless Slaughter section! :)

If I'd drawn some magnificent hand for T14 then I would have kept in it another round, but I have received five 2-Ops so I think it is safe to say things will go poorly from here on out!

You've played an excellent and substantially error-free game, and I am guessing you must be among the top tier "in this sport"! Obviously not much "went right" for the CP in the first 5 turns, and against some opponents one can still "get something going" later, but you slowly turned a modest advantage into a bigger and bigger advantage and I fell more and more behind, gradually and unrelentingly trapped "between rocks and hard-places."

It has been a pleasure to play you, and I look forward to crossing swords again in the future!

Again, great game!
