No time left for fighting neither for diplomacy. It's just a run for centers. The beauty of the game has gone. :(

Lol looks like Russia is giving England Warsaw and Moscow this year. I'm not sure if this is intentional or if England is just so convincing that he gets fooled several turns in a row.

At this point, if I'm Italy, I still want as many of those French units at the front as I can to stop England from being able to take Brest and Paris in a couple of years. But then again, Italy does want his center count up. I don't think Italy has the units in the west to hold those for very long.

They have...what...45 minutes?

It's not Diplomacy, it's beautiful Risk or whatever name you wanna give the game.

It’s still Diplomacy. The negotiations and fun stuff may have died down, but that happens at some point in almost every game.

Wow, yea, Russia is trying as hard as possible to give this to England.

I think he might have gotten unreasonably mad at Italy for taking Bul years ago and kind of went too vindictive too early. Russia still had lots of chances at that point.

If the players cannot agree on a result and there is no solo win, then the game will end at a random time between now and 3:30 pm.

Based on the Central Clock, that is either one or two more years.

Congrats to Andrew Goff, World Diplomacy Champion 2018!
