I guess what happens is that infantry just postpones a foregone conclusion in the final stages of a game, but by that point it comes down to a mutual decision among all players whether or not to play it out to the end. Got time for another game? Let's stop this one and start a new one! My guiding ph...

AC, Sorry you missed it, one episode was set in Australia, with an Aussie coastal spotter played by Peter Frampton. Who you may also not remember.
