19 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 9: Paul McCartney or Jona Lewie? Both bad enough to start WW3.

I've paused.

I assume that while you are away we can all un-pause it and wipe you out? Just sayin...
19 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 9: No, I think we all have to unpause it for it to restart.

Besides, that would be unChristmassy behaviour.
19 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 9: Cool. so i I never unpause it's like a draw but we don't share the points? so I'll only unpause when you have all also hit draw!
19 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 9: (that can't be right and you can prob complain to an administer you would chuck me out)
19 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 9: Yep, I did read forums about abusing the pause option!
19 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 9: Damn.
19 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 9: I have paused, although inflicting Jona Lewie upon us is near unforgiveable!
19 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 9: I send you this in response http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9jf-GVIxy9c
19 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 9: Good grief no
19 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 9: Well for good measure this is my favourite christmas song (there's a little bit about cowboys & indians in it - a bit tenuous?) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=owK5tHjL0aE
19 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 9: All paused for christmas. I'll check back on boxing day to see if anyone is up for unpausing yet.
Happy Christmas to you and your empires.
19 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 9: Well if we're on to fave christmas tracks, well.. I just want a Tyrannasaurus Rex for Christmas - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Myaj1H7R_LY
19 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 9: Is that somebody being murdered?
19 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 9: Doh!! Now I want a Tyrannosaurus Rex for Christmas too, but I've already posted my letter to Santa!
19 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 9: Tyrannosaurus Rex's (?) are for life, not just for Christmas.
19 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 9: The 12 Indian Days of Christmas was so good I listened to it all the way through. And I don't think I'd heard that Lovely Eggs track before?
19 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 9: Mrs Persia and I have also just been listening to Christmas songs - here's another favourite: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1i9G60wvH7Y
19 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 9: I fly back on the 27th, might be able to unpause on the 26th or 27th...
27 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 9: OK, I'm back!

Hope everyone had a lovely Christmas - now it's time to resume hostilities...
29 Dec 12 UTC Spring, 10: Well, that was totally idiotic of me - after waiting a week to unpause and then thinking I had worked out the game cycle again, I obviously totally missed the last deadline. What a muppet.
30 Dec 12 UTC Spring, 10: You could have told us you were going to miss the move, I would have planned things differently. Muppet.
30 Dec 12 UTC Spring, 10: I know, I think I got away lightly - but still annoyed at failing to make some of the moves I should have.
31 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 10: Happy New Year all!
01 Jan 13 UTC Autumn, 10: That's me dead then
02 Jan 13 UTC Spring, 11: Happy new year everyone.

I'm going to start a new game with seven players, if you're all keen? Hoping to get Bob, Oli and Gav to make up the seven.
02 Jan 13 UTC Spring, 11: Yep!
02 Jan 13 UTC Autumn, 11: Yes, me too!
03 Jan 13 UTC Autumn, 11: Egypt?

Assuming Egpyt is in, we've got five so far, waiting for two to confirm and then I'll set it up...
03 Jan 13 UTC Spring, 12: Yep
06 Jan 13 UTC Autumn, 12: OK, new game is open, join now:
http://www.webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=107773

Password is crumpet, obviously.

Only five players, couldn't get seven to commit, the fifth is Bob.
06 Jan 13 UTC Autumn, 12: Done
08 Jan 13 UTC Spring, 13: Well this has got draw written all over it - everyone agree?
08 Jan 13 UTC Spring, 13: Absolutely! Can't see how anyone can get the upper hand.
08 Jan 13 UTC Spring, 13: I'm not so sure about that. And I want to know how a game ends!
09 Jan 13 UTC Spring, 13: Actually you (Egypt and Rome) should be being nice to us, as we have the power to defeat one of you (so you'll get a "defeated" mark in your stats) and let the other one live (so you get a "survived"), so you should be sending bribes...
09 Jan 13 UTC Spring, 13: Hey Egypt, i think they are trying to set us against each other!! Little do they know, we have a 100% foolproof plan to defeat them both once we've completely lulled them into a false sense of security! They should be afraid.....
09 Jan 13 UTC Spring, 13: Ummmm... when exactly does this plan kick in? I think they must be feeling fairly lulled by now...
10 Jan 13 UTC Autumn, 13: Well I haven't quite finalised all the details....
11 Jan 13 UTC Autumn, 13: No rush...
11 Jan 13 UTC Autumn, 13: Yowsa - that one hurt!
11 Jan 13 UTC Autumn, 13: I think it's time to rush our plan into action now... really... like, now!
12 Jan 13 UTC Autumn, 13: OK, GO!!!!
12 Jan 13 UTC Autumn, 13: OK GO?

12 Jan 13 UTC Autumn, 13: Actually I quite like the fact that a large part of the world is coloured a nice shade of purple.
12 Jan 13 UTC Autumn, 13: It is rather beautiful, but would be offset nicely with a little more red, don't you agree??
12 Jan 13 UTC Autumn, 13: It will all turn yellow soon enough...
12 Jan 13 UTC Autumn, 13: Isn't that a Coldplay song?
12 Jan 13 UTC Autumn, 13: That sums up my position. It's as bad as Coldplay.
12 Jan 13 UTC Autumn, 13: That's about as bad as it gets.
15 Jan 13 UTC Ha - your dastardly plan to make me lose lost. I survived. With a grand total zero points but survival all the same. So ha!
