“Game over, man”?

Perhaps, if the ceasefire holds.
Let’s hope it does.
Let’s see… in Ukrainian Crisis game terms, the situation would be something like: the eastern areas of the pro-Russian ethnic zone well populated with Russian irregulars and Special Forces, opposed by a mixture of regular and irregular Ukrainian units; Crimea has joined Russia through a Critical Incident roll; Ukraine declared an Invasion Phase some time ago in its “Anti-Terrorist Operation” to get kinetic on the pro-Russian irregulars, with mixed results; final score somewhere between a Draw (crisis has stabilized for now, but the advantage will be to Russia should it resume) or Tactical Victory (Russia will continue to be the primary influence in Ukraine’s decision calculus). Or it could be that the Ukrainians have just gotten a Truce, to get to the end of the current Strategic Round.
Meanwhile, last week I got a note from the Victory Point Games people: they had been diverted by having to finish other games in the queue ahead of mine, and it will be a little while before they finish it off, but they expect to get back to it “fairly soon”.
