omg, that pink one played even worse than you... do all gold players play like this? Then if I started I would be like Trillionaire!

Yep, I was hoping fizzer would pierce it with his razor eyes and then delete it. We solved it with another game in the end.

Sorry if I'm a massive noob, but couldn't Purple have spared one from North Africa for two turns to put into West Australia, then take the Australia bonus? Pink consistently left two survivors after each attack.

no, unfortunately, I thought about it, but if I'd spared 1 troop it would be 15 vs 9, he'd kill 8 and leave me on 1, I'd kill 6, leaving him on 9. and then he'd break north africa next turn.

I really like what you did in turn 24. That was the turning point of the match I think.

although if fizzer does read this, it might be cool to have a similar thing to chess, so if the same thing happens several turns in a row, the game is a draw and everyone gets refunds

Or, Mr. Fizzer deletes the game, and you both lose your coins?

The idea is to win... winner gets coins...

If you don't want either of you to get coins, VTE, or decide to surrender,
or play another game so that the other person wins...

but expecting a refund seems to be like saying that it's a bug in the game that neither of you has won. :P

Sorry Hades, but if you were in that position against me instead of against ostertoaster, you would have lost your Africa bonus. Here's how:

(Pink) v (Purple)
(8+4=12 in Brazil)(+3 to central America ready to complete card) v (North Africa: 2+8=10)
takes West US for card piece (1 mobile troop left) (12v10=11v10=5v3)
Pink plays card (5+11=16v3+8=11)(15v11=8v2) Pink's troop moves back to Central America
(8+7=15v2+8=10)(14v10=8v2)(Pink's troop moves to Venezuela
(8+7=15v2+8=10)(14v10=8v2)(Pink's troop moves to Brazil
(9+7=16v2+8=10)(15v10=9v1)
(9+7=16v1=8=9)(15v9=9v0) Pink breaks North Africa

It was already discussed that pink played that badly...

I've had this happen a few times. Either
A) you try and outlast your opponent (sometimes they will get aggressive and start expanding) or
B) you get that other income (Australia), knowing exactly where your opponent is, and try and trick him somehow

Breaking NA shouldn't have been the game. Sure the odds weren't in your favor after, but it wasn't a loss if you get AUS. He will start expanding (and losing troops from his big army doing so), so you might be able to equal out.

So no it wasn't a stalemate, you gave up when you still had options.

-> even if you hit with 1 first order ? (didnt do the computation, but changes lots of things sometimes)

If I lose NA he can take america slowly and he wins. so no I didnt really have options, and C) play another game to decide, which worked fine for us.

Yeah huddyj you're right, he didn't think of that though.

That kind of calculation is often what separates the good players from the rest. (Although, I would have played differently earlier and may not have ended up in that situation)

I mean, I thinking too much either, otherwise I wouldn't have deployed 1 in Australia, which would have stopped the stalemate
