1 excused missed turn
Game drawn
15 Jan 14 UTC Autumn, 1994: I think it's fairly balanced still--with Spain gone, that gives England, France, Egypt and Italy an advantage, while with Russia gone that gives Germany, Poland, Ukraine and Turkey an advantage. Perhaps I am mistaken though--can we at least eliminate Russia and Spain and then draw, so that everyone gains some points? Or if, when Spain and Russia are gone, we choose to continue, we can do so?
15 Jan 14 UTC Autumn, 1994: I'd say just Cancel / Draw the game, create a password protected re-match for the 8 who showed up, and find 2 more on the forums, and have a real, more fun game, instead of going into philosophical arguments whether Egypt will get as much benefit from Spain's resign as France...
15 Jan 14 UTC Autumn, 1994: Spain left already.
After Russia gone, I agree to call it a Draw.
18 Jan 14 UTC Autumn, 1994: Sorry Germany, anon and password don't match.
30 Jan 14 UTC Spring, 1996: Sorry, I realized I have many other things to do, so I will not be able to continue this game. If I skip this retreat phase, will I CD? Or do I have to miss the fall turn as well? Is there any way to replace me with another player now instead of waiting?
30 Jan 14 UTC Spring, 1996: GameMaster: UrsaMinor was banned: multi. The time until the next phase has been extended by one phase length to give an opportunity to replace the player.
Remember to finalize your orders if you don't want to wait, so the game isn't held up unnecessarily!
30 Jan 14 UTC Spring, 1996: who was UrsaMinor? I think these updates need to tell us the country affected as well when it's Anon
30 Jan 14 UTC Spring, 1996: In the notice panel it says Russia has gone into CD, someone has taken over Russia, and then someone was banned. And now only Russia is an open slot. My guess is, it means UrsaMinor was just Russia for a very short period, and we haven't really lost anyone...
30 Jan 14 UTC Spring, 1996: sounds feasible.
30 Jan 14 UTC Spring, 1996: seeing as how this game has been plagued with problems, anyone wanna cancel? we'll all earn a (negligible) amount since Russia's gone and someone bought in for Russia.
30 Jan 14 UTC Spring, 1996: Just push Draw then.
30 Jan 14 UTC Spring, 1996: I mean draw, not cancel.
30 Jan 14 UTC Spring, 1996: Spain and Germany, please draw.
01 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1996: Spain? If you see this, please vote for a draw.
01 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1996: actually it's still a well balanced game, why not continue from here?
01 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 1996: I don't have the time to continue playing. Spain and Russia haven't been here the whole time. Can we please draw?
07 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1997: New Britain player first turn. Looks like I need to sort out France first . . . .
08 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1997: As a newbie . . . could you please confirm for me what the yellow stars and red expolsions denote ?
08 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1997: Yellow is creation/build.
Red is destruction or destroy.
08 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1997: Many thanks
10 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1997: Sorry to be a pain . . . what about the exclamation marks against Ukraine, and why would I want to draw or cancel ? Can't seem to find this info.
10 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1997: Exclamation marks indicate that he hasn't locked in his move yet. A green check mark means locked in, a dark grey means saved but not locked in. Ukraine has voted to draw the game or cancel the game, which would only happen if very player voted the same.
10 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1997: Exclamation marks indicate that he has not input any orders for this phase yet. A grey check means you have orders entered, but have not finalized (saved but not ready). These will automatically input when time is up, but don't allow the turn to process until all checks are green or time runs out. If everyone votes cancel the game is done and everyone gets their bet back, if all vote draw, then the pot is equally divided over the players still in the game.
10 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1997: Many thanks. Have only played the board game until now . . . so, believe it or not, not a complete amateur in spite of what you must think !
11 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1997: I figured it was part of your clever plan to lull your neighbors to underestimate you.
11 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 1997: Well yeah, that too.
22 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1999: There is an alliance of Germany, Poland, Britain, Spain and Italy formed to deal with the threat from turkey and Egypt. So far it seems to be holding. Should any one nation leave the alliance the other 4 nations will all turn on them so loyalty is sensible. Any cries of 'foul' could be posted globally to get a unanimous response.
22 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1999: I'm not sure Germany and Italy have ever been aligned...
22 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1999: And i will admit to taking an Italian center... foul?
25 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 1999: But....Poland...I thought we were friends? What a way to find out .... I get England talking up anything that points elsewhere but since Pol/Germany are 23 and T/E are only 22.....not sure a Grand Alliance is really called for, or that I should be its target.
25 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 1999: Can't we all just get along?
25 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 1999: Let there be peace!
11 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 2002: As Germany has 18 centres now, why hasn't he won and the game ended?
11 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 2002: 33 are required for this map
11 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 2002: Duh. I read that somewhere. Sorry!
11 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 2002: 18 is the standard map victory, that's where you saw it :)
16 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 2003: So is this officially all those voting for a draw against the hold out?
16 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 2003: @Turkey: In a hurry? Going anywhere? Shall I remind you of your own message talking about "cleaning up the extras" to reduce the draw to a 4-way? =)
17 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 2003: Some dirty laundry getting aired...
17 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 2003: I said that, didn't expect Spain to rally. Note that my draw vote is in, so yes, I think it fair to include 5 since I can't do a thing about it. I won't attack Egypt, Egypt seems to support Spain,,,,,hence, looks like a 5 way. Unless Germany wants to contest that and we get to 4....a different 4 than I expected.
24 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 2006: germany, click the draw button!
27 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 2007: So now that that is over, drawing?
27 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 2007: Well, what I told Egypt, is show me a nice stand-off line, and I will draw. So I don't think it will take long either way. But until then, it still feels incomplete.
29 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 2007: How on earth should I make a stand-off line, you have double the fleets I have? You could as well attack Poland, he isn't doing anything anyway, where's the fun in that?
30 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 2007: If you admit you don't have the strength to stop me, why should I stop? Isn't the aim of the game to try to win if possible, draw if not, survive if even that's out?
30 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 2007: Yes, of course, I don't blame you, I would probably do the same. I have difficulties with the fact that the other half of the map is just sitting there, waiting for you to win the game.
30 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 2007: Maybe something to do with points per supply centre mode?
30 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 2007: Nope...its just silly. No one is getting a solo and there are several natural stalemate lines around Italy and he'll hit one eventually and all the points get divided 4-ways anyway.
03 Apr 14 UTC Only that some people prefer a 49% share of the pot with a survive, than a 25% with a draw.
But fair enough, good game all. =)
04 Apr 14 UTC Not if you've been around......win/survive/loss means a lot more than points. Points come from longevity eventually. Well played folks.
