Robson (X) vs Kilroynothere (A) G40 YGTE - game2 revenge of the dice gods

    @kilroynothere Hey Kilroy, yes it is terrifying and horrible what happens there. This is just two hours awway with the airplane. It feels like Putin has completely lost his mind. Seems like he is trying to work on his place in the history books. We just hope he stops at the border to Poland and other eastern european countries.

    @robson I can only imagine how all of the EU is feeling. Cold War all over again! I sincerely hope that the rest of the free world has the backbone to put in place some very severe sanctions that hurts him directly, just as they have started on his oligarchs. I believe there are only two ways of overthrowing a dictator. Military might, or allow the forces within his country do the work. That means a LOT of pain for those in power there to make a shift. Unfortunately, that will take a lot of time which Ukraine does not have.

    @robson Making sure you noticed about the scramble order for the Italians. Posted the game as well. I know I missed your post of the game last time because of the manual method we have to use right now.

    @Robson just checking in to make sure you noticed my last post.

  • 2022 2021 '16 '15

    @kilroynothere just saw it a minute ago. triplea_37995_1ita.tsvg Sorry for the long delay. Will be better this week. We had spring holiday in Germany for a week. So the kids were at home and we too. Hope you are doing well.

  • 2022 2021 '19 '18 '17 '16

    @robson awesome. Hope you had fun with the family. And no worries on the delay at all. I’ll be out of pocket 12-19 for our Spring Break here in Texas. Heading to California with the family to have some fun and see some old friends.

  • 2022 2021 '19 '18 '17 '16

    @Robson The oh-so-exciting rest of the allies turn 1.

    @kilroynothere triplea_37995_2ger.tsvg looks like another fun game

  • 2022 2021 '16 '15

    @kilroynothere That sounds great! California sounds like a much better place then europe at the moment. Everybody here is pretty scared about the war in ukraine.

  • 2022 2021 '19 '18 '17 '16

    @robson definitely, but I have to say that all of America is nervous as well. We feel that NATO will be forced into this one way or another and then no one really knows what happens. Scary times for Europe and the rest of the world. Was really hope we were past this phase of humanity, but clearly we are not.

  • 2022 2021 '19 '18 '17 '16

    @robson Yes, definitely another fun game. Like your opening move for Germany. Makes for some tricky decisions for the allies and gives you a lot of flexibility. Going to be fun. I’m going to try to get UKP done before I leave town, but might not make it in time.

    What terrifies me is the way the debate is going on in Germany right now. Our government which consists of the socialist, green and liberal party has changed long-term foreign policy by 180 degrees. In a glimpse the chancellor decided to fund the army in germany with 100 billions Euro additional to the 50 billions which we normally pay per year. There are also many poiliticians from the whole political spectrum debating wheather we should have a more active role in the war. At least we opened the border and distribute the ukrainian refugees in all states. Till yesterday we had 5000 refugees arriving in Stuttgart only. In Berlin which is the central point of entry from Poland (central train station in Berlin) there were already 50000 people mostly woman with their kids. I just hope that somehow the war will end but I have no idea how that should happen. At the moment it seems like Putin has extremly underestimated the Ukrainian forces and people. I am afraid he will escalate the war in a way that the Nato members will not be able to not intervene anymore. Tensions are really high at the moment.

  • 2022 2021 '19 '18 '17 '16

    @robson Wow! What crazy times we live in. It does all seem a little too close to the 1940’s, doesn’t it? Different original aggressor, but similar. Basic land grab mentality on Russia’s part. Appreciate your perspective and info on Germany’s stance. We simply do not receive good international news in the US. I really have to search for it. I also fear that NATO will have no choice but to intervene here soon.

    I just got back into town and am catching up with work. Hoping to get my move in here shortly. Thanks for the patience and hopefully the game can be a distraction for you during these tense times. Keep me posted on Europe’s stance as it evolves. I’m very concerned and you guys are much more in tune to the actual situation with the refugees and how NATO and western Europe is preparing.

  • 2022 2021 '19 '18 '17 '16

    @Robson Very sorry for the massive delay. Got back from Spring Break and was swamped… well, still am, but at some point you have to relax a little and have some fun! Like your Japan and your G/I openings… Making for a very interesting game. You have forced me to purchase in Australia which of course I do NOT want to do. Good work.

    @kilroynothere Hey Kilroy, finally back to the game. Hope you are doing fine. I hope to play a little more surprising as last time 🙂 triplea_37995_2jap.tsvg

  • 2022 2021 '19 '18 '17 '16

    @robson I do enjoy surprising and unconventional moves in A&A. Makes for a fun game. This variant I think lends itself to that!

  • 2022 2021 '19 '18 '17 '16

    @Robson Entertaining start to the game!

    @kilroynothere thanks and sorry for being late on this. Spend a week together with the family in Turkey over eastern weekend and the last week.
    Hope you had a wonderful eastern too.

    @robson no worries. Hope the time away was great. Clearly you came back with some easy thoughts! Germans in Scotland?!?!? That can’t stand!

  • 2022 2021 '19 '18 '17 '16

    @robson So far a fascinating game! Your Japan 2 really forced some compromises for UKP… Good stuff. Also forcing Britain into all kinds of decisions I did not expect to make. Of course, I broke my own rule by building an IC in Egypt! 🙄
