|The Battleboard set to go!|
|The UN: Diplomats in action: coloured vests denote team allegiance|
Then Team Yellow made a bid to garb the whole canal and attacked one of the Blue ships (my team). We then established a cunning plan to beat them down hard which was fun, but rather pointless from a VP perspective. Once we had destroyed their offensive capability we backed off on them. Of course, other countries sensed weakness and soon yellow was badly on the ropes having territory carved off everywhere.
|VP graph for the second to last turn: Red was clearly going to go for broke against Blue here!|
|Red moves into position|
|And lands a massive invasion party|
|This is the unit losses graph - as you can see, Yellow became the sick weak member of the herd...|
So what was the end result? The Red/Blue battle while devastating, kept Blue slightly in the lead in VPs at the end of turn 8
And so my Man Cave will now have a new trophy in a suitable place of honour! I knew I had done well when the Lad said "You were totally Bismarck"
