01 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 5: What kind of inspiration are you hoping for?
01 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 5: The kind that comes with people switching sides to make the game more interesting :-)
01 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 5: I suspect Rome & Carthage are already finding the game interesting :)
01 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 5: Very true. I'm not though and I'm moaning about it :) I'll just have to keep at it...
01 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 5: Woo hoo!
01 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 5: I knew it!
02 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 5: Did Britain switch sides towards the end of World War II just to make it more interesting?
02 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 5: Nope. Britain didn't back-stab its allies by attacking them either :-)
02 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 5: Btw, you've both played very well and I'm just peeved that I'm losing :-)

It'll be interesting to see how things pan out between Rome/Carthage once Greece and Egypt are out
02 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 5: Did I miss a turn?
02 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 5: This looks a lot like Greece Egypt and Persia all missed a turn. How did that happen?
02 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 5: Egypt has already hit cancel. I missed a turn as I didn't see a way of defending my units without you.. there's no hope for me unless Rome or Carthage suddenly decide they don't like each other any more (unlikely)
02 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 5: Persia - yes, you missed a turn.

Egypt didn't, I don't think?

And Greece, you should never not put in orders, even if your allies don't!
02 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 5: What does everyone fancy playing for the next game?

Another five-player game on this map? A seven-player one? (I think I could get two more friends to make up the seven.) Or we could join a 17-player world game?
02 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 5: > And Greece, you should never not put in orders, even if your allies don't!

Really? That's a bit harsh. I think I can pretty much do as I please, cry if I want to etc

Another game sounds good

02 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 5: ooops double post - sorry
02 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 5: If we all join a 17 player world game, can we all work together? That would be cool. Happy to play a 7 player game too.
03 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 5: I don't mind what we play next. I missed a turn too :(
03 Feb 13 UTC Autumn, 5: If we played a 17-player game we'd be scattered randomly around the world, so obviously no idea who would be able to ally with each other, could be interesting though...
04 Feb 13 UTC Autumn, 5: And you're not supposed to ally with friends against strangers - according to the rules...
04 Feb 13 UTC Autumn, 5: It doesn't say that exactly - it says that you shouldn't ally with friends if it doesn't make sense to do so in the context of the game (if that makes sense). Furthermore it's recommended that you declare to everyone at the beginning of the game if you know any of the other players, which allows others to keep an eye on any potential unsporting behaviour.
04 Feb 13 UTC Autumn, 5: Yeah, that's what I meant. Ish
05 Feb 13 UTC Autumn, 5: OK, I've set up a new seven player game here:
http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=109951

Password, as usual, is crumpet.

I'll wait till all five of you join, then hopefully get two more friends to join (Bob, ask Max!).

Once we've filled that one, I'm also going to set up a 17-player one to run at the same time, will let you know.
06 Feb 13 UTC Autumn, 5: I've joined the other game. Pretty sure Max won't want to play but I'll ask him.

Can we go for a draw here? Come on!
06 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 6: Yeah I vote for a draw! You know you can never defeat me :)
06 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 6: We should form a pact? With my armies and fleets and your.. erm... your... rubber dinghy in the eastern med we could take over the world!
06 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 6: Don't worry Egypt, my forces will soon destroy all enemy units from wherever I am to Egypt and shall return Alexandria to its rightful owner...

(waking up from a dream)
07 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 6: Yeah I vote for a draw! You know you can never defeat me :)
07 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 6: Doh! Why do these messages keep repeating themselves!!
10 Feb 13 UTC Autumn, 7: Anyone got an idea who we can get for the seventh person for our next game?
11 Feb 13 UTC Autumn, 7: Am I still here?!?
11 Feb 13 UTC Autumn, 7: You're holding your own
14 Feb 13 UTC Autumn, 8: Ha- you're fighting back!
14 Feb 13 UTC Autumn, 8: Be afraid....
14 Feb 13 UTC Autumn, 8: I'm afraid of Carthage's incompetence.
15 Feb 13 UTC Autumn, 8: Are you trying to rile Carthage into attacking you?
15 Feb 13 UTC Autumn, 8: No, but he'd mess it up anyway if he did.
15 Feb 13 UTC Autumn, 8: lol
17 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 9: Oops, missed a phase due to severe drunkenness.
17 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 9: !!!! I'm shocked at you!
17 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 9: See, irresponsible behaviour. Told you.
20 Feb 13 UTC Autumn, 9: I'm done. Thanks to the two super powers for wiping out the great Greek civilisation. The world will not be the same. I predict chaos and bad art
20 Feb 13 UTC Autumn, 9: And less facial hair.
20 Feb 13 UTC Autumn, 9: I didn't mean to do it, it was an accident.
20 Feb 13 UTC Autumn, 9: I'm still hoping for a draw....
20 Feb 13 UTC Autumn, 9: You've also achieved the quite remarkable feat of having a supply centre but no units.
20 Feb 13 UTC Autumn, 9: Yeah, that was part of my cunning plan.
22 Feb 13 UTC Well that's that then.
23 Feb 13 UTC Good game all, well played.
