     I should have assumed that would happen & moved my units into position. Oh well, enough is enough, eh? I hate unforced draws, but I would deign to accept a draw if the alternative is my elimination. Wink

I don't know what you're surprised about.  I should've ordered Holland-Kiel, though.

     I figured that was going to happen, but I didn't bother to do anything about that...insulting oneself is not against the TOS, right? Tongue

I'm seriously tempted to put that phrase in my sig.

Now Mikado should refuse. Then Jas next turn.

Commemorating Aussie Veterans? 1914 turn? That reminds me of that beautiful song...

Are you implying that I am not a gentleman!?

This calls for a duel. With blunt scissors. You may pick the time and place, sir.

     For the record, that will likely be the last game I play on this forum. My attitude towards playing just doesn't allow me to have any fun if a draw is going to just be called at any arbitrary point.

Obviously you aren't a gentleman if you've already forgotten the code duello.  The challenged gets to pick the weapons, sir.

Not in this case because as you rightly point out, I'm Working Class.

In light of my recently-discovered aversion to blunt trauma wounds in the shape of safety scissors, I have to withdraw my remark.  Lewis Trondheim, or should I say Herr Trondheim, is indeed as much of a gentleman as any man on this site.

Cheers for the game, guys!

I'll sound out players for another game - assuming there are enough players, we'll probably start in a couple of weeks.

Good game everyone.

     For the record, that will likely be the last game I play on this forum. My attitude towards playing just doesn't allow me to have any fun if a draw is going to just be called at any arbitrary point.

I'm sorry hear that. Draws are actually a major part of the game and the first page of the rules states "players can end the game by agreement before a winner is determined. In this case, all players who have pieces on the board share equally in the draw." There is quite a lot of literature not just on stalemates that cannot be broken, but also on minimum requirements for one power to prevent a win by concerted effort of the other players. Playing to win includes preventing the other powers from forcing a draw.
