27 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1901: Hi there! How would you like to handle the channel?
28 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1901: DMZ and ally, sweeping east together to triumph over the whole map? What are your thoughts?
28 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1901: Hehe! ;-) should we not communicate on our line rather than openly in front of the world. Bluffs and double bluffs will only get us so far!!
28 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1901: Bah! Is that all we are to you? Mere Easterners? Hah! England, thou shalt soon learn a thing or two of German engineering, Russian bravery, Austrian statecraft, Italian romance, and Turkish delight!
28 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1901: Well that was awkward ;)
28 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1901: You know how us English can get when it comes to colonisation. ;-)
28 Nov 14 UTC Autumn, 1901: The Turkish people would be delighted if the English stay home and not colonize us :-)
28 Nov 14 UTC Autumn, 1901: France obviously misinterpreted DMZ for the channel as meaning something else ;-)
04 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: Cheerio England. Looks like you've become a colonized zone - sorry we didn't meet up.

Also farewell to Austria - you fought the good fight against that dastardly Italian. Looks like you'll be avenged. Thanks for your help against the equally dastardly Russian.
04 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: Yes - above messages public - I didn't employ the fired French press secretary from beginning of game ;-)
04 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: GG Austria, England, and Russia. I'm sure I speak for the surviving nations in saying that we will enjoy assimilating your ethnic foods and arts into our own clearly superior cultures! Your children and infirm adults will be treated with compassion, and your men and women of breeding age shall be free to choose their own spouses, at least here in France, French Britain, and French Italy.
04 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: Ya I guess I should still say GG to Russia - even though he attacked me ;-) The people of Sevastapol also will be treated well. Can't speak for the people in Moscow, Warsaw and St. Pete.
04 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: England has food and art? I learn something new every day ;-)
06 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: missed last phase - too much going on in life - well, that's not good (and last 12 hr game I play I think ;-)
06 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: Ready up pls.
07 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: sorry -
07 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1907: People are mean sometimes
08 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: they don't even thank me for my supports to them ... just tell me I'm dead meat instead... those French and Germans, so nasty ;-)
08 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: it's a fun game when diplomacy is useless
08 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: Hmm. Doesn't seem useless to me.
08 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: The success of the Franco-German alliance is testament to the usefulness of diplomacy! Together, we'll have the E.U. established a full century before its rise in actual history! Don't worry, we'll leave some Turkish workers, too...
08 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: Have fun fighting militants for a century, just to hold on to a little corner of desert!
08 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: Turkey -- Germany's decided to betray me, so I'm on your side from here on out. He will win next year, but let's coordinate to minimize his take.
09 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: what do you propose?
09 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: I also don't really care much at this point as I've had zero luck communicating with either of you ;-)
09 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: We can take Bulgaria. He's taking three of mine this turn, but we can at least do that.
09 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: We can also probably recapture Serbia, but I'm not sure.

In any event, I will break Serbia's support for Bulgaria this turn. Con should move to Bulgaria, supported by Black Sea and Greece. Be sure to hold Greece from Ionian Sea.
09 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: Actually, the longer I look at the board, the more I think we may have some counter play. I'll be in touch directly, since the tactics may matter.
09 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1908: German code breakers are reading many of your messages. Might want to change your machine ;-)
09 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1908: And sorry - the fleet in the Black Sea just blew up.
09 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1908: Yeah, that was a dumb move.
