10 Oct 09 UTC Spring, 1901: I'm glad that this game happened. And I have no idea who any of you are, just as it should be!
14 Oct 09 UTC Autumn, 1901: Assuming that Austria doesn't return in the next 3 hours, do we want to advertise for a new Austria in the Forum?

Presumably somebody should just do it *without* saying so here, so that the rest of us won't know which power you are.
14 Oct 09 UTC Autumn, 1901: (I would have done it myself without saying anything about it, but I'll be offline by the time the phase ends, and probably not back until tomorrow morning.)
15 Oct 09 UTC Autumn, 1901: Somebody posting for a new Austria might throw off the anonymity of the game a bit. I would like to have a new Austria though - so I can team up with him and crush Turkey!!!
21 Oct 09 UTC Spring, 1903: I've finalized in accordance with the instruction above, but I'm still listening to communications.
26 Oct 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: Ghost rating is out. Do you guys look at this? Don't tell what number you are, just wondering if you looked.
26 Oct 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: I hadn't looked, but now I have, so thanks.
27 Oct 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: Man, England got the big squeeze there.
29 Oct 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: Farewell, folks.

01 Nov 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: I say we draw this game & start a fresh one with 7 players. Hopefully no CDs. Everyone must admit this would be a different game if all 7 countries would have played. I know Russia is in position to win, so he will not go for it. Just thinking out loud & trying to save my @ss :)
01 Nov 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: I could possibly be talked into it, but has anyone played a recent game without anyone CDing for a year or two at least? I haven't.
01 Nov 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: Most of my games have been without CDs. This is the first 1 I have played in a long time where there have been CDs. Let alone Austria twice & Eng. France are you still with us? It is more fun with all countries playing.
01 Nov 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: Most of my games have had CDs. Sometimes they've helped me more, and sometimes they've hurt me more. I'd rather play the game out, either way. There's still a chance, however slim, that I might eventually stab Russia for a solo. :-)

However, even if we finish this game, I'd be happy to start a fresh one with 7 players. We can create a new game with identical characteristics, all sign up for it (perhaps at an arranged time), and wait for 2 more people to join; the chances of a CD among 2 other people are much less than among 6 other people. If we pause this game just before we draw it, then we can even remain anonymous in the next game.
01 Nov 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: That is a pretty good idea. I'm for it if everyone else is in. Maybe if we up the points to 50 we will not get some one who will CD on us. Just a thought.
01 Nov 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: The approximate timestamps can be amusing. As shown to me, Germany's reply to my comment comes approximately 58 minutes *before* my comment!

50 points is OK with me. But we should make sure that all 5 of us agree to this and can afford it before creating the new game.
01 Nov 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: yep i am up for it.
02 Nov 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: Then we just need to hear from France, and Russia to agree to a 50-point pot. Then one of us can create the new game (who created this one? not me) and announce it here, we all sign up. No password, so 2 more people can sign up (cross your fingers), but announce it here so that we all sign up before 3 strangers do.
02 Nov 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: I should be OK spending the 50 points as long as Turkey doesn't stab me in this game! ;-)

J/k - 50 point pot is fine.
02 Nov 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: set draw then we walk away with the points as it is
02 Nov 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: My 3 year old said that Russia is a Meanie Poopie head. I agree.
03 Nov 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: Tell him I said you aint seen nothin' yet! ;-)
07 Nov 09 UTC Autumn, 1906: I'll be fairly busy this weekend, so it's fine with me if folks are slow to Finalize (or get Ready) with their retreats and builds.

I will be able to get on occasionally, however, so I can make my builds and even my moves when the time comes.
09 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1907: Now my connection at home is down, so sorry if communication is still spotty.
10 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1907: And here I thought you guys were big fans of purple! Tough room!
10 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1907: What are you complaining about I thought Turkeys spotty internet connection would mean he would stop messaging me.
10 Nov 09 UTC Autumn, 1907: Not with my dedication!

Although I'm about to go offline for (probably) about 20 hours, so now's your chance to all plot against me.
11 Nov 09 UTC Autumn, 1907: for anyone who is listening as T is off line i will give you the support of all my units against him,....somone might have to lend me some units first!
11 Nov 09 UTC Autumn, 1907: My connection is back for good now (I hope).
11 Nov 09 UTC Autumn, 1907: Am I crazy, or should Kiel have moved to Munich instead of Bohemia?
11 Nov 09 UTC Autumn, 1907: Never mind, I'm crazy; Munich and Kiel attacked each other. So that is all correct, and good playing by Russia.
15 Nov 09 UTC Autumn, 1908: Breaking news, Earthquake in Russia, Turkey sending troops to help out.
Germany unable to aid in relief efforts due to not knowing how to swim.
17 Nov 09 UTC Autumn, 1908: Breaking news: Italian peasants feeling subjugated by Turkish expansion... wish to launch their own army. ;)
18 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1909: Good game guys. Seem to have gotten pretty quite around here. This year should bring about the end of this game. Nice job by Anonymous to win the game. Good luck to all in your future games.
18 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1909: I think that I crashed the server when I finalized!
18 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1909: Yep, you did. I checked with the mods. Mods also said you should give me all your SCs. I will be over shortly to get them, as soon as I figure out how to make these tank float.
21 Nov 09 UTC Any interest in a new game as discussed in 1905? Of course, now we know who we all are, but we could still make it anonymous and not know who's who.
