And here is a report showing that my diplomats had further success, but that the French have finally tossed Hardenberg out. If I were to continue playing I might send him to England to charm them, or perhaps try to charm Russia. Or I might take advantage of his espionage rating and have him try to cause some insurrections in countries controlled by France.
However, I think I’ll stop here, having played four full turns. I might continue the AAR if there are aspects of the game that people would like to see covered, but I think I’ve achieved my purpose of showing how one might approach the game.
As I mentioned above, it would be great if other experienced players might try the same thing with other nations/scenarios. Obviously, since I’ve covered a lot of the economic decision-making (and bjmorgan in his guide has covered a lot of what I skipped) it would not be necessary to rehash that so much, so such an AAR need not be as long, and could focus more on military and diplomatic decision-making. (I just realized, for example, that I did not propose a treaty to anyone.) If anyone decides to do so I’ll link to his AAR or AAR’s from this thread, so that they can easily be found.
In order to keep this thread pristine I think I'll lock it. There can always be discussion of it in another thread, but in case I continue it I'd like it to consist only of my posts.
