Sabi, or not Sabi

Game 422 ends the same way that Wes Ketchum left Season 15 with his France walking into a board top. As France, the opening seemed pro-English and anti-German, but we find out afterwards that it was a head-fake. From there, F/G puts England on his back foot, but can’t finish the job before Wes turns on Cori to lock up a high enough center count early in the game as insurance against the leaders in the East.

As the title shows, our newest Weasel Sabi (suh-bee, in Hamlet form) Ahuja joined us through our Meetup site a week or so prior to the game without any knowledge of our presence on the Diplomacy Broadcast Network or our Discord server. Playing mainly Extended Deadline and Speedboat, this was a newer experience but Sabi as Italy was able to put together a solid alliance with forty-seven time (actually 4x) league champion Brandon Fogel in Austria. After slowly playing the tactical battle against Turkey, A/I grew a little too slowly to catch of with France.
