AAR: Russian Solo Win in High-Level Gunboat

Postby BrotherBored » 21 May 2020, 01:58

My friends, I've published a new article today. It is part 1 of a two-part series. In these articles, I discuss how I was able to get a solo win as Russia in a high level gunboat match.

This is maybe 30% my musings on Russian strategy in gunboat, and 70% After Action Report. Not as thorough as my journals, but more detailed than your typical AAR.

Thanks. This is very well written. I have never played much gunboat myself because I always thought it was kind of boring and not very diplomatic in a way that I like from the full press games. But you do a good job of showing off the strategy going on in gunboat which makes it significantly more interesting.

I always really enjoy your blog posts, thank you! I've never been much of a gunboat fan myself, either, but I can appreciate the level of thought and strategy required (and I'm sure I'd improve a lot as a Diplomacy player if I took the time to get decent at gunboat, too!)
