We're into 1904, and everyone still has only 4-5 SCs, except for Russia who is at 7. No one nearing death, no one running away from the pack. Does that just go to show the equality in skill level here, perhaps?

England in Brest, France in Clyde, Germany surrounded by units of every other nation (except Turkey), Russia sitting in both Norway and Galicia, Turkey with only one army, Austria in Bohemia, Italy with a Lepanto convoy set up but both armies heading north.

Certainly not a boring game, it would seem.

It certainly is an experience to be part of this game. Hardly anything has been like it was seen so far.

Wow... Just looking at it now. Great game. Great openings. The Western Triangle is the most interesting one IMO right now... Crazy stuff up there.

Don;t obviously want to comment too much as the game is ongoing, but good stuff to watch!

MR... I'm cheering for you. Gotta keep the young guns in there! Can't believe the average age of this game... I had no idea most of the players on this site were that age!

Looks like Austria is the first to be eliminated.

They're not. Not yet, anyway.

OR

there are a whole lot of 38 year old police officers pretending to be teenagers. If the truth be known, "Master" Radishes is actually Detective Senior Sargeant Radishes.

And still Bitwise hasn't blinked. Is it putting anyone else off?

Or is he winking at me? So much left to the imagination!
