bayder (Axis) defeats polarole (Allies) in round 8 of a pbem game using standard ToC rules. Axis were the beneficiaries of early good luck, which helped Japan stack Per in round 4. Allies were successful in several risky attacks to get themselves back into contention, but in round 8 with Germany stacking Ukr and Japan stacking Per, the Allies decided to surrender.
As always, polarole was a fun, gracious, and challenging opponent. I look forward to playing him again, we have always had great games in the past. Cheers! bayder
