Game drawn
14 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: I still wish we'd managed to convince lord Pakistan to join us for our final game
14 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: Lol Tom
14 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: So do I get to take over the play by play this time?
14 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: If you want but I'm best at that
14 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: In my humble opinion
15 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: And it is oh so humble...
15 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: Tom's pie making skills are legendary.
16 May 14 UTC Spring, 1906: Yes they are
16 May 14 UTC Spring, 1906: Message if you have any suggestions then. Otherwise, play by play begins next turn
18 May 14 UTC Spring, 1907: Where's the commentary Lesley?
18 May 14 UTC Spring, 1907: Lessley*
18 May 14 UTC Spring, 1907: Sorry autocorrect
19 May 14 UTC Spring, 1907: And carnage begins :)
20 May 14 UTC Spring, 1907: I am trying to play this so that critical moves will be due either during finals or during graduation, take your pick. This is not your 5th Century Roman Empire
20 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: Of course you are
21 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: While I can't win, it looks like I'll decide who does.
Offers are now being taken
21 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: Regarding my press silence as of late: I've had problems with internet connection lately, and when I get through I've had little time left before the deadline. My apologies for the headaches it may have caused. Any country that keeps me alive has my units to attack the big purple blob
22 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: Adrien man why do you have to be so anti-chief?
23 May 14 UTC Spring, 1908: So this is a fitting final four
28 May 14 UTC Spring, 1909: Dang it, I've been so busy today I forgot to check up on the game.
28 May 14 UTC Spring, 1909: I'm disappointed by the lack of commentary
28 May 14 UTC Spring, 1909: I'm disappointed in the way the game has gone
29 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1909: Lol, you had it in the bag before you stabbed me schules
Commentary:
The chief is on a westward rampage and it looks as though Italy's fight is too little too late. Englishmen recently started going to church more often because their prayers were answered: Germany didn't turn in moves. Ironically, England had given up and also did not turn in moves, but it looks like England got the lucky break overall. The chief and his purple blob, at the current rate, will take over the majority of the board by 1911, so at least England might have a chance at survival.
29 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1909: Really though, the lepanto would've won if you didn't get nervous and take Trieste. Look at Autumn 1902. We had 10 centers and Russia and turkey had 6 (ignoring n Russian st Pete, Finland, and Norway since those don't affect the south). If I didn't have to retreat to get back Trieste in addition to not having the extra army to continue the attack on Russia, I could have defeated Russia and you could have defeated turkey. It was perfect!
But maybe next time, I guess...
29 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1909: I like the commentary, anyone care to top that?
29 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1909: Really though, this whole game's been something of a wash. At least Russia kept it together long enough to grab a strong lead.
29 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1909: It wasn't a wash at all and ted the Lepanto wouldn't have worked because you play with the silent treatment. But anyway all I know is everyone except Muhammad(who probably forgot how to play) had been chiefed. Once again.
29 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1909: Not really, Chiefed implies you fooled us. We all knew what you were planning, at least I think we all did. I can only speak for myself on that regard. My point in saying it was a wash is that no one's heart was in the game except perhaps yours and Schuler's. There were constant missed moves and little organized planning that when all was said and done was actually effective. You're the only one who appears to have been organized this whole game if you understand where I'm coming from with that.
29 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1909: Ted your right, again. I see that the game still stirs up intense emotions. When moves work, it was your own ingenious work. When they didn't it was someone else conspiring against you. I love that part of it. I give credit where credit is due. Tom has played a good game up to now. The question is can he finish it (I suspect so, as Ted say it may be a little too late for Germany and I to come to our senses. At least I'm trusting that Germany has come to their senses). Tom I think the Lepanto might have worked, but it might not have. Too many variables. At some point Ted and I would have had to go after each other and Italy and Austria always have a very uneasy relationship even with good communication.
I've enjoyed this format but nothing replaces the face-to-face game. I would like to think I'm better at reading people than computer messages.
29 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1909: Germany came to their senses a while back, but it seems it took the Italian a little bit longer (i. e. The stabbing each other part if you remember that) ;)
29 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1909: Let's just hope for the best from here on out. Desperation is a wonderful tool when it comes to alliances.
30 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1909: Wow such trickery
31 May 14 UTC Spring, 1910: Face to face is my favorite. I'm much better at working a room than electronic messages. And I don't miss moves :P
31 May 14 UTC Spring, 1910: Never played face to face before. I'll have to try it some time.
31 May 14 UTC Spring, 1910: Nobody would trust me face to face. Nobody. People barely trust me on the PC
05 Jun 14 UTC Spring, 1911: alright I submit I won't win. I vote draw. Seems fair for best 3 players
05 Jun 14 UTC Spring, 1911: I'm in Europe right now and it's hard to keep up with these moves so a draw would be much appreciated.
06 Jun 14 UTC Do you happen to be in Germany?
06 Jun 14 UTC Schuler if you wish to draw and take the points simply select draw just below your moves in the votes section
06 Jun 14 UTC I would be ok with a draw but I'm on the short end of points right now. I perhaps I was able to gain a couple Russian spaces to make it more equitable then I may be persuaded. Thoughts Russia?
06 Jun 14 UTC If we draw we automatically get an equal amount of points
06 Jun 14 UTC So actually I would lose points and you would gain points
06 Jun 14 UTC Ok, I thought it would be based on how many points we currently had
06 Jun 14 UTC So vote draw and the game ends
06 Jun 14 UTC It will be so sad to see this end.
06 Jun 14 UTC France actually, I've just now been able to check up on the game. Glad to see it came to a satisfactory ending for 5 hose parties still remaining.
06 Jun 14 UTC *those, I hate how the 5 is located directly above the t since auto correct doesn't catch it.
06 Jun 14 UTC Well this is the end of Roswell diplomacy
07 Jun 14 UTC For us at least. It was fun while it lasted. See you guys around.
07 Jun 14 UTC Look! I'm still on the board! :D
