Half ofthe shops are closed, As does the theater, city hall, library, IKEA etc. 

I am a volunteer at the local radio station which has shut down.
With the exception of the hourly news. Which happens to be my task. 
So it is a bit lonely in the studio

Ya, I have shut the Bowling Center down but I do have one advantage. I can still take the family bowling and be safe.

Be safe out there but remember, your move is due :woohoo:

Yea, one of the players that has done shit up to this point has had the idea to attack my team totally out of the blue. 
I know this game has the possibility of daggers in the back,  but this one -and its possible follow-on- is cruel.

Victory has always been a game with a severe lack of information. In a way, this lack of information is the charm as well as the curse of this game. 

It allows for sequences and moves that are completely within the rules of the game, but also a bending of realism that comes close to breaking the game. 

Like: moving through a TA , DW-ing a countriy that that TA has a NAP or Alliance with  and parkting 17 heavy divisions on its most important province.
Timed in a way that the victim only hears about it ater his own turn. As his TA's went before the attack. . 
That way murdering its economy in one fell sweep, As the only group strong enough to push back is off somewhere else and can't react in time. 

Some call this a wellexecuted sneak attack. 

I call it unsportsmanlike and ugly. 

But of course, you could say, you would do it yourself if given the opportunity. 
No, I wouldn't

Any deals you or your TA's make should apply to all TAs on both sides unless Explicitly spelled out.  Otherwise you are just backstabbing someone

I think the game has many ways to play. An 18 stack of Armor versus a stack of airborne with long range can change the battle every turn. Using LCM's and cutting off rail lines disappearing the next turn. Strategically placing intercepts and fighter cover can end a TAS campaign quickly. Destroying a persons fuel, gen or fuel at night can be devastating. Using rangers can really mess with planes, rail and even leaders. You can't protect against everything. However, its always fun to see if we can spend all the money without hitting the negatives every turn. I agree about agreements which I always follow. I really enjoy playing the game it is filled with great players.

I think I am getting old, in former days I always expected to be killed with a dagger in my back. Therefore  I have always some troops at home and guest are always welcome.
