07 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1919: Thanks for the compliments.
Without having listened in on the conversations beween F/I/A/R it is hard to see where it might have gone wrong. But obviously, something did go very wrong when at a late point of the game (about when France still held Tunis and before Italy got stabbed?) two remaining powers wanted me to solo. I can't say from my position whose fault it was or if it was anyone's fault at all.

Also, Turkey, just walk out of StP... that would save us all 3 mindless turns.
There is no way short of me not being able to enter orders that this will end with anything but a solo.

Curious to see who everyone is.... :)
07 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1919: I just realized my comment was not for this game... wow... if that is not a sign of Masters fatigue, I'm not sure what is... I cannot ever do the Masters again... long live Gunboat in shorter rounds!
07 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1919: I cannot, in honor cede you StP. That would tarnish any victory you hope to achieve.
07 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1919: you have no way of keeping it.... or do you think you do?
08 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1919: None of us can avoid our end but only our journey.
08 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1919: Yes... please do "avoid the journey"... GRIN....
08 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1919: Ha, I should resolve never to try and be witty while using my cellphone.
09 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1919: Yes, many a faux pas has transpired for those afflicted with fat thumbs (I like the permanent number line on my Samsung 4, but I'm just too lazy to correct it when numbers creep into my text...). By the way, I commend the fighting spirt, but there is no stopping the inevitable English victory... you could force this another fulll year, but god I hope there is not another pause coming!
10 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1920: Wow.... paused... end the pain!!!
10 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1920: I'm a sadist.
10 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1920: More of a SAD-ist, 'cause its just plain sad...
10 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1920: Haha
13 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1920: I'm waiting with baited breath to see if you will allow England to end the game this turn or if you will force him to move Fin to Gulf, Sweden to Finland, Norway to Finland, supp Sweden, and Edi to Norway, sup Barents in Spring next year... Impressive how this game has dragged on... not that England is complaining with the Solo!!!!
13 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1920: Couldn't possibly do that. Plenty of players in the closing stages succumb to the pressure and make foolish choices that cost them the game. In all honesty I don't see this England doing that, but honour demands we must make him work for it :)
13 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1920: Totally agree.
26 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1920: Thanks for the pause!
28 Aug 13 UTC congratulations england
