10 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 1901: Evening all.

Just by way of introductions, there are six of us here who are friends;
purplemasss - Bob
peacetaker - Venetia
Spargere - Gavin
Don't Look Now - Clare (Why shouldn't we look now anyway?)
gnuvag - Fraser
timbrown2002 - Tim

jacksuri is a new player - welcome!

Let battle commence!
10 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 1901: Fraser, the way you've worded that makes it sound like we all know each other. We probably all know you though.
Bonjour virtual friends! I appear to be France. When can I call in the americans?
10 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 1901: True, we don't all know each other, but I couldn't be bothered to explain it any better.

You'll find the "call in the Americans" button amongst your options below, but I'd suggest using it wisely. You don't reallly want McDonald's in Paris, do you?

Incidentally, did anyone know that we killed more French civilians when we bombed northern France to dislodge the Germans during the D-Day landings than were killed in the German blitz of London?
10 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 1901: If anyone fancies joining another game (not set up by me), there's one that me and Rich H are in here:

10 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 1901: Greetings all. And good luck!
10 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 1901: I actually scrolled down then. Just to check. *fool*
And no - I didn't know that.
10 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 1901: Oh dear.
11 Mar 13 UTC Autumn, 1908: As this game is (probably) drawing to a close, who's up for starting a new seven-player game?

I've got one more to join us (Rich) too...
12 Mar 13 UTC Spring, 1909: Looks like I've hit the end of the road...
12 Mar 13 UTC Spring, 1909: And it was a long and winding road, took you a long way from home!
12 Mar 13 UTC Spring, 1909: Oh, go on then, i'll join another game.
13 Mar 13 UTC Autumn, 1909: Anyone else up for the next game?
13 Mar 13 UTC Autumn, 1909: I'm up for it too
13 Mar 13 UTC Autumn, 1909: I'd join too, hope there are shorter phases.
13 Mar 13 UTC Autumn, 1909: Best way to shorten phases is for everyone to agree to hit ready quicker - especially on build/retreat phases - though that doesn't always suit everyone, as some people don't have much time online...
13 Mar 13 UTC Autumn, 1909: Just thought I'd pop in and see how Russia is doing... Oh dear.... hahahahahahahaha!!!!!!
13 Mar 13 UTC Autumn, 1909: You're a fine one to talk! Fat lot of use either of you were in our three-way alliance...
13 Mar 13 UTC Autumn, 1909: lol
13 Mar 13 UTC Autumn, 1909: that was a lol for Austria's comment btw
13 Mar 13 UTC Autumn, 1909: Shall I convoy one of my armies into Piedmont? That way I can support you into Venice.. Long shot
13 Mar 13 UTC Autumn, 1909: Forget the above - I will not do that :-)
13 Mar 13 UTC Autumn, 1909: No, I wouldn't recommend it. It's a bit chilly in the Atlantic at the moment and your soldiers might catch colds.
13 Mar 13 UTC Autumn, 1909: My sailers have been complaining recently and I need to get them somewhere warm. Turkey is an ideal holiday destination :-)
13 Mar 13 UTC Autumn, 1909: Sorry, everywhere in Turkey is fully booked at the moment - have you considered the Mediterranean instead?
13 Mar 13 UTC Autumn, 1909: The ports are too busy there, all hotels booked
19 Mar 13 UTC Autumn, 1911: New game is up and running here:
http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=112949

Password, as ever, is crumpet.
20 Mar 13 UTC Autumn, 1912: OK, so things are starting to look a little bleak.

Just think twice before you wipe me out - think of all the culture you're destroying. Not to mention the kebabs and the Turkish Delight.
22 Mar 13 UTC Spring, 1913: Go Bob go!
23 Mar 13 UTC Spring, 1913: Shut up you useless vodka-drinking wastrel.
26 Mar 13 UTC Spring, 1914: Hello hello is anything happening over here? You've been like this for aaages!!!
26 Mar 13 UTC Spring, 1914: Just taking my time lulling England and France into a false sense of security before I unleash armageddon.
26 Mar 13 UTC Spring, 1914: Good plan
26 Mar 13 UTC Spring, 1914: Talking about lulling, come on France, hit ready!
26 Mar 13 UTC Spring, 1914: D'accord
26 Mar 13 UTC Spring, 1914: Sağ olun.
26 Mar 13 UTC Spring, 1914: Was the unit in London trying to fly to Naples? Obviously got lost in that black hole in the middle of Europe.
28 Mar 13 UTC Autumn, 1914: Go Bob go!
28 Mar 13 UTC Autumn, 1914: Yay!! Go Bob!
28 Mar 13 UTC Autumn, 1914: Sigh.
31 Mar 13 UTC That took bloody ages, as Fraser rightly predicted. That was the best defence ever, mate.

Thank you all
31 Mar 13 UTC Yay! Go Bob go!
31 Mar 13 UTC Oh. Sorry I missed the end. Congratulations!!
31 Mar 13 UTC Finally put out of my misery! At least I managed to survive with a few supply centres left though!

Well played everyone, very enjoyable game - and I think the longest (30-ish turns) I've played.
