Moves the Fall 1906 Turn. Notice the epic Battle of Trieste, a 3 on 3 Bump leaving it still in Italian possession. That may be a first for this game:
Results and Influence:
Note that there were two units that were dislodged and had to Retreat, both French. The A in Hol was dislodged by the English A convoyed from Lon with support from Eng F Hel. This A only had one retreat option, to Rhu The French A in Spa was dislodged by the Italian A coming from Mar, supported by A Gas, and only had one retreat destination, to Por. In the interests of time, I made those moves for the French player.
The summary of builds and losses is at the bottom of this post. England emerges as the big winner this term, scoring three SCs and loads of Dutch cheese and German beer, and a few French POWs. Turkey slowly grinds away and picks up 1 - with tough Italian opposition, and France starting to fold up like a cheap suit at an August wedding, England’s prospects for the endgame look superior to those of Turkley. Italy holds her own, France must, sadly, remove two units.
I am absolutely gutted to say that this turn marks the disappearance of Germany and the removal of the Germany player, who was an absolute trooper. Once we get to the Now It Can Be Told phase, I look forward to describing some of the ways that the Germany player kept this lively for me and the other players. Well done, sir, you gave it your best.
