Man, playing as Germany when you know that England, France AND Russia are all out to get you is a little paralyzing.
I suspect there's a big difference between how the game feels between those playing the Central and those playing the Allied powers.

I for one was very pleased to have the allied powers rather than the central powers here - I just prefer that position of the 'outside' rather than the 'inside' block.

There's definately a difference in strategy. The 'outside' has the advantage of not having to worry about their "rear," whereas the inside has the ability to rapidly move forces from one front to another.

How come the other game is invisible? I can only see the game I'm in.

Both games are "private" and only visible to the players involved. I didn't want anyone joining them while I was creating all the usernames or taking over as Italy later.

However you can follow the links in the OP of this thread to and see the current maps and order histories for both.

1901 Update:

Greek Game:


Allied:
England: 5 (+2)
France: 5 (+2)
Russia: 4 (+0)
Total: 14 (+4)

Central:
Germany: 4 (+1)
Austria: 5 (+2)
Turkey: 4 (+1)
Total: 13 (+4)

Of note: Russia has lost one of its homeland SCs (Warsaw); England has successfully landed an army on the continent.

------

Roman Game:

Allied:
England: 5 (+2)
France: 5 (+2)
Russia: 3 (-1)
Total: 13 (+3)

Central:
Germany: 4 (+1)
Austria: 5 (+2)
Turkey: 5 (+1)
Total: 14 (+5)

Of note: Russia has lost one of its homeland SCs (Sevestopol in this case); England has successfully landed an army on the continent.

-----

It certainly looks like Russia is in a hard spot at the beginning, being vulnerable to 3 enemy powers all at once. England, on the other hand, looks practically invulnerable in the early game.
I also think its interesting that Serbia remains unclaimed in both games.
