10 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 1999: Egypt!!! Seriously? Man, you are screwing with us. Not cool.
20 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 2002: **Urgent News** The 2014 Winter Olympics have been cancelled due to the downfall of Russia. Go home, athletes, your safety is no longer being kept by the Russian government. Those of you who were competing from Britain, Germany or Italy, just stay put, your countries are coming to you instead.
21 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 2002: Awesome
23 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 2003: So, I'm going away on vacation on Wednesday, for a week. I wasn't even going to mention it since I assumed that I would simply continue playing from there. However, that was before I found out how much our resort charges for Internet access. (As much as I'm enjoying this game, it's not worth a couple hundred bucks.)

I may have a sub lined up who can babysit for me while I'm away, a friend who's played before (but not in this game), but I wanted to leave it up to you folks what to do. If you want to continue playing it out, that's fine; I'll bring my sub up to speed with my plans and strategy, but you won't technically be playing against "me". Or we can pause. Or we can draw...although I'd rather not do that since I don't believe the board is properly stalemated yet.

Thoughts?

(And I realize this is partly my own fault by deciding to go for the solo, when otherwise it probably would have wrapped up by now.)
23 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 2003: Well as someone who's only in because of the (current) good graces of Italy I vote for an immediate draw!
23 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 2003: I'm easy going. I'll go ahead and click draw, but it's looking like we'll either end in a 2 or 3v1 stalemate or else Italy will break through somewhere. Not sure which, but I've had a good time regardless.
24 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 2003: It's been a good game, and it was a lot of fun. I'm fine with either pausing or drawing. Not too hot on the third option. Italy, you can make the final call, as it looks like Spain and Britain don't mind either.
24 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 2003: Well, I'm really curious to see how things play out from here, so I say pause...for now.

If, when I come back in a week, you guys have lost interest in continuing, then I'll add my draw vote and we'll divvy it up.

I'd like to finish the leftover Turkey (heh) before adding my vote either way.
24 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 2003: Fair enough. Pause after this year's build phase?
24 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 2003: Sure.
24 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 2003: The fact that Turkey has come back and entered a move is brilliant. Possibly trying to play spoiler right to the end...my hat is off to you, sir.
24 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 2003: (Or madam.)
25 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 2003: Good game, Turkey. I mean that in all sincerity.
26 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 2004: We'd talked about a week's pause, but I'm seeing 24h. Am I wrong?
26 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 2004: 24 hours after we unpause. Once Italy comes back, we all vote to unpause, and after the last person votes, we still have 24 hours.
06 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 2004: I'm back.
06 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 2004: And I've decided to move all my troops, my HQ, and my entire empire to the Bahamas. Way nicer there than anywhere on this map. ;)
06 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 2004: Welcome back :) Took me a while to wrap my head around this map again. I'm ready to go :)
08 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 2004: Italy, could you color in West Sahara and Anadolia, please?
08 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 2004: Only if somebody goes and colors in Iceland. :)
