Two-Way Draw

Well, I finally got a two-way draw.

120306. total war europe.1

I'm not going to AAR it. It was a 12-hour deadline game. There wasn't much communication or strategizing.
Be more aggressive.

For your amusement, I was involved in a game following taking over a surrendered position that became clear was going to be a strange 2-way draw between the other 2 remaining powers (no stalemate line) & nothing I could do would effect that outcome. In discussion one of the participants proudly informed me it would be their 3rd in a row & was obviously very pleased :-) I was a bit dumbstruck, but I guess each to their own.

Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished.
