Hussar is over. A 4-way draw between RUSSIA (AQ), ITALY (Yorkshireman), ENGLAND (Batsman) and GERMANY (Spitfire) crashed Russia's dreams of soloing the game after having 15 SCs. In the process, FRANCE (khan1234), AUSTRIA (Dunam) and TURKEY (The Leader) were eliminated. The four winning players will each get 3 points from the primary scoring system, while Russia will be strongly ahead in the Detour98f - the tie-breaking scoring system.

Post your EOG/AAR in a new topic in the Games section.
Congratulations to the winners and good luck to everybody in your other games!
On that day we’ll say to Hell: “Have you had enough?”
And Hell will answer: “Is there more?”


Second place in the first round in the Wonderful Mansion tournament with a solo in 1907.
Eat that, Edi Birsan :)

Nice working with you Spit and York - you both had a familiar tone but I hadn't picked who you were. Sorry AQ for the continual barefaced lies. That one was fingernail stuff for me. 3 bonus points...

Bats has just SET the NEW standard for AARs for the site. I won't even try to outdo that effort.

Haha... I like his comment on me... I played a fairly aggressive game!

Now that there are only a few games left from the first and second round, is there a time table for when the next set of games will begin? I guess in reality the games still going could last another 3 weeks, but it isn't likely. Are they going to start a week after the last game is finished or is there going to be a break or what?

I guess we should poll and see how many participants expects prolonged periods with offline status in the holidays season (x-mas and new year). If it's a lot of players, then perhaps we should start rounds 3 and 4 in the new year?
