14 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1902: This is waaaaay too much time to give to retreats.
17 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: ? This is normal diplomacy, right?
17 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: Yeah, although I've noted how strange the game has been as well.
17 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: Quick revise: I think so, but wouldn't be shocked to discover that I was wrong.
17 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: Man, looking back at the moves, the previous England was as erratic as a ferret on a double espresso. I begin to understand why so few people are talking to me. I am a different guy though. Check out some of my past games :-) I'm a pretty reliable ally.
20 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1904: Yeah, I completely agree that this match has been one of the stranger matches I have ever played as no one aside from those taking advantage of vacant countries seems to be accomplishing all that much.
24 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1905: Nothing like being woken up at 3 in the morning to a 6.1 earthquake!
24 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1905: Damn
24 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1905: Hope everyone's all right. Best Coast.
24 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1905: Yes, I hope everyone is okay as well.
24 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1905: In my house a few things fell off the shelf, etc, but not nearly as bad as in Napa and Sonoma.
24 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1905: Some extremely good wine has been reckt today. Sadness.
24 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1905: Haha, yeah.
24 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1905: I'll probably open a bottle tonight in remembrance of the wine that we've lost... Sad, sad day. In all seriousness, it could have been much, much worse.
24 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1905: 6.1 is a good earthquake to have, because, if I'm not mistaken, small earthquakes let off some of that stress and reduce the chance of a big earthquake. 6.1 isn't small, but it's not a 7. And it's a little bit less developed out there, so there's less stuff to topple.

But earthquakes can cluster up sometimes. You might want to want to sleep away from windows for a while and make sure your taller furniture is secure.
24 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1905: Russia is trolling this game hard. Sending out a mass email announcing their departure from the game due to the game's inability to peak their interest and then waiting until the umpeenth second to send in their orders every turn since.
24 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1905: Yeah, agreed. It was pretty strong in Berkeley, although I heard it wasn't that strong in San Francisco (where I just moved from). What was rare is that it lasted for some 30 second to a minute. Usually they're much shorter in duration.
26 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: Strange board setup indeed.
26 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: Easily the strangest game I've ever played, haha...
26 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: Failed Jug (if it ever was at all); failed Western triple; it's interesting.
27 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1906: Everyone was going to leave Austria to die :(
27 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1906: Poor Austria, haha...
28 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1906: Hey folks, I am going to be out of town for the weekend. Starting tomorrow, I'll be hard to get in touch with. I don't anticipate missing any turn though.
29 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1906: Okay, have fun
29 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1906: The good news for everybody is that Russia is on the verge of defeat, meaning that these turns should start moving a little faster.
07 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1909: A couple people asked me why I didn't click ready. I'm on the road and wanted the extra time to be sure not to miss my orders. I should have mentioned this in advance. And I apologize for delays and inconveniences.
07 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1909: No worries, man. Take your time.
07 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1909: No problem.
07 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1909: It's cool
09 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1910: Yep, Looks like Neapolitan ice cream.

Good game France.
09 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1910: Same. You fought valiantly.
09 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1910: Thanks, see you all next time.
