Ok, I'll bite. How does one go from a single unit in Chaos in 1901 to ten units in 1902?

P.S. Look at me. 500 posts. And it only took a little over 13 years to do it. :lol:

Game 127709 - I solo'd as Russia in 1905. The game was marred by a few NMRs by the end but I pretty much had it sewn up by then anyway. I was pretty pleased with it as I agree - don't think it can be done any faster unless there is some kind of conspiracy going on!

I once finished a Milan game as Russia with 22 centres in 1906 (160718), dead chuffed with that one.

I did read a post on here a couple of years ago that referenced an old time legend winning as Italy in 1905, can't remember her name though.
(I can't find the post. It must have been in a blog or something).

Just finished off game 191570 as a 19 center russia after 1905. I think there was 1 NMR by a 3 center power midgame and a couple of misorders by other countries that helped, but it may have been pulled off even without those, not sure.

There's no chance it can be done any faster than 5 years without coordination for people to just walk out of centers or everyone else just waiving builds.
