This one is against Sevenseas. One of my preferred game, very strong, brilliant ... as it is Christmas and I'm 50 I added links to my favorite hits when I was 15 ... enjoy watching the game with the music....

Yes, very good game!

 

I played a bad game and moved too many pieces. I made a bad call with your marshal too... :(

Well, first one not so nice from me :)

How did you find out where the flag was in G3? You guessed it should be where it wasn't in the other two?


Highest rating : 838 (Platinum Major)

As you had it in back row behind lake right in 2nd game i assumed you wouldn't have it in same location for game3. So i had 50% chance it was one of the 2 other possibilities and got lucky. In fact i wanted to scout this one with my unmoved scout, have my gen ready to lotto in your corner and have my moved scout scouting the 3rd possibility behind lake right, but one of your scout would have protected it so i may have lost my gen for nothing. Losing a scout instead was not so dramatic as the game would have ended in a draw if my scout had hit a bomb....but that game was quite thrilling!

2 new videos with a very unusual setup for me. Good mighty game against Enigma and a game against Great manos where patience and subtle moves was key for the winner.

Napoleon's been tainted with the lotto blood. I think I've seen everything now. :)

That's fast! Yes, do mind where my General and Marshal are coming from first rows ;)! And my bombs first rows ;)! Sadly, his Gen took out my still Col right next to one :(! It wasn't needed either as you were way up already. So I would've lost on all accounts, still it would have made this a better game (no lottoblood needed) I think. It was bad for me our strong sides were exactly on the same corner, but it wasn't such a long tedious shuffling game so good anyway.

It didn't even cross my mind. It hadn't walked. Big advantage whenever a major comes walking by.

 

Besides, I had 2 or 3 pieces exposed there already. Lots of walkers. Why create another walking unit? He was up pieces so could easily catch them while I had nothing to gain as info I already had plenty.

My biggest suggestion for Lonello would have been to go on offense with his general, try a little lotto himself, maybe even get the open flag.  It would have taken some luck, but trading generals sealed Napoleon's victory.

 

By the way, I have a programming suggestion.  The caption in this picture:

should read "Napoleon 1er's general lottoed Lonello's Colonel"  :)

Yes but as I said I had several walkers exposed there already with his 2 Cols and Gen chasing them... amongst which was a major which he knew! And there wasn't a lot I could lotto... the corner was pretty much empty with almost all bombs. I figured to do with what you said with my last unknown big piece, a Colonel... but it never had a gap... nor would he have allowed my Gen to take the flag ofcourse, he would have run back.

:) .... never let your opponent believe that you have put a bomb in diagonal of your spy that is in first row behind a lake...

Lo, I still think in this case the best defense is a good offense.  Notice in this picture:

 

https://snag.gy/QBaGUd.jpg

 

your general is the piece closest to his territory.  If you pressed toward the middle and he doesn't retreat with the general then his left side is vulnerable, and if he does retreat you could have pinned his major between your general and colonel.  At that point you force him to trade generals by threatening to get the moved pieces on his left side.  Then you come right behind with the colonel for some easy pickins.

 

What I want to know from Napoleon is how you smelled out Lo's general.  After finding the marsh, I would have assumed it was protecting the major on the left side, or at least that it wouldn't be coming down the same side as the marsh.  If it were me, I would have likely lost my colonel there.

...one of my weak point is to show a colonel on one side and then have it trapped in that side path. When my opponent has his marsh in my field with my colonel in diagonal in the last column and is then approaching another piece from my colonel .... usually i lose it cause usually my opponent is bringing his gen there. So when i recognized this configuration (= my colonel is trapped in diagonal of his marsh without any possibility to come back in my field and my opponent is making effort to bring another piece in direct line with my col I'm almost sure the piece approaching is the gen ... he would never make all these efforts on the right side if it would be only to exchange the colonels .... I've been caught to many times in that configuration that i 've learned how to escape from it ... just exchange the marshs (even if the spy is near by) and get your col in diagonal of his gen. If he had brought his gen in the center the major would have been moved on the left column to be in diagonal of the gen while my gen would not have been moved to block any incoming colonel from the center. attack on left side would have continued with the lieut, 2nd col and scouts. But after having found that bomb all right on 2nd row with all those strong pieces on that same side my feeling was that the flag was in the corner right.

... and on left side if his gen would have been protecting the major then he would for sure have moved the major  behind the lieut after he has moved his lieut in order not to lose the major ... but he didn't ... this tells me that the major was not protected.

your general is the piece closest to his territory.   

Hmmm... what am I going to gain there, whilst I'm trying to defend my known major? His major won't be catched. I would be in need to expose my unknown Colonel first, and go through the same drags that did NOT deliver the Colonel I was after earlier on in the game...

 

So I could have lottoed there&then, giving up my walkers, a.w. a major, sure. But I did not know 1 bomb. Now I know all these lieu's and captains over there, sure. But one of them could have been a bomb. And there were no majors to be catched while I surely would lose one. And ofcourse in 0% of chances I would have walked over to that flag ;)!!!

 

As for Napoleon: that lottoblood US talks about is real. I've seen many times a bomb there. I remind you I evaded my Captain at first too. So with a Scout there, you could have jumped at my Spy, but it was your General. Finally I put my Captain back as my Marshal was unknown. Could have been bluff, and it was indeed bluff. For all we know it was a bomb there and not a Colonel. Why not? I do not let my Spy blocked in so he could walk away when a Major hits that Captain. No problems there.
