Draw Proposal

Postby AardvarkArmy » 21 Apr 2017, 06:18

Here is how I view the situation:

1) Halicarnassus & Thebes obviously have zero chance of survival
2) I am in a distant 3rd place position - only by a miraculous series of dumb mistakes and NMRs could I ever achieve the solo that is required of me
3) Athens & Ilium are for all practical purposes evenly matched... Athens is slightly larger, while Ilium may have a slightly better position
4) While I have no hope of a solo, I am large enough to play a decisive role in blocking any other solo - whichever one seems to be gaining ground, I throw my weight to the other side - instantly creating a 12 vs 20 scenario that would be an impossibly steep uphill climb
5) If Athens and Ilium get tired of me stalemating the game, they could always join together to take me out... but that would be an insanely risky course; there is a reason one all but never sees a 2 player DIAS in standard dip - as 2 players "work together" towards clearing the board, inevitably one or the other catches a lucky break near the end - so the game ends 18-16 solo rather than 17-17 draw

Conclusion - Halicarnasus, Thebes & I are all out of the running for any share of victory, while Ilium & Athens can both be blocked from solo in perpetuity. There is only one logical course at this time:

I hereby propose a game-ending draw of Athens & Ilium. It is the ONLY outcome there can ever realistically be in this game.

1. I resent that. ;)
2. Thebes accepts the draw proposal.

I accept the draw, on the condition that I get to keep my half of Crete.

Thanks for the game!

Good game all. The much vaunted and universally feared "empire" invasion turned out to be little more than a few Egyptian fishing vessels run aground on distant shores... :mrgreen:

Tis true because the Greeks united at a critical time. Great game everyone! See you in the AARs. 8-)
