Record number of centers?

I was curious if anyone knew the record number of supply centers ever captured in a recorded Diplomacy game? Most ever on this site? Has anyone ever finished a game with at least one home center from each country?

In the game 29361 Fatmo achieved a solo with all 34 centres, also painting all of the land provinces Turkish turquoise. To my knowledge he is the only player to achieve this.

Presumably stage-managed to allow Fatmo to achieve that - cannot otherwise be possible, I suggest - if I'm wrong about that, how WAS it done?

I urge you to take a look at 158944 - this was fun!

In Fatmo’s game one player was eliminated and the five others successively surrendered without replacements, leaving him to mop up the map.

I hardly consider this a "Diplomacy Game."

It would be interesting to know the most finishing with all players present and correct. I think I have seen 22.

So far, 22 is the highest plausible number. As fun as it is to see Fatmo's Study in Cyan and the Turkish/German checkerboard, those obviously were not competitive games--at least not at any point even close to the final turn. The Austria 22 center game clearly shows that defenses had fallen apart at the end--possibly because Germany trusted Austria too much?--but it looks like it was probably pretty competitive to the late stages.

I recall vaguely that Italy decided to attack me, and ignore the Austrian solo run, so gave it away rather. But it is still a valid contender. I am sure there are bigger ones out there.
