31 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 2007: Sorry BC, but this is going to end in a 4-way.
31 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 2007: Says Texas, subject of a legally declared jihad.
31 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 2007: Drawing with somebody 1000% smaller is just a slap in the face though
31 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 2007: legally huh... Where is your Form 1072-A?
31 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 2007: Lololol
31 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 2007: It's sharia law, we don't need no stinkin forms!
31 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 2007: But you are canada...
31 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 2007: Dammit BC! This is why we don't have nice things. People can't take the 30 minutes to fill out one damn form. ITS ONLY ONE FORM BC!!
31 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 2007: Pretty sure there isn't sharia law there.
31 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 2007: There is in the future.
31 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 2007: Well have fun in Vancouver, we spilled maple syrup on all the forms so they might be sticky.
01 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 2007: Well I am up to my ears in poutine here in Quebec...
01 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 2007: Is Quebec part of your four way draw, or are they on to your americanigans?
01 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 2007: Well he/she is one of the 4 major powers, so yes. We are going to do this Versailles style.
01 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 2007: California's departure was awfully convenient then, wasn't it...
03 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 2008: gg Mexico. Way to stick it out to the end. See ya next round!
03 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 2008: gg New York! See ya next round!
03 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 2008: *salutes*
03 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 2008: Yes, good game, boys! Let's call it a draw!
03 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 2008: Lol
03 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 2008: Draw draw ariba! Viva la mexico!
07 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 2010: gg BC, see ya next round!
07 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 2010: you really did stick around sir. good job
07 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 2010: Thanks for the game!
07 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 2010: well played TX
08 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 2010: Gotta ask, what was the point? If you guys were in an agreed 3-way, all the BS diplomacy didn't matter anyway.
08 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 2010: More likely it is a Texas solo that is in the works.
08 Apr 15 UTC Spring, 2011: Let's finish off quebec and call it a day team.
09 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 2011: I get standing by alliances, but I don't get walking away from an easy solo.
09 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 2011: it's one of the few games where I actually had great allies and was able to respond in kind, so I think he is honoring the teamwork but drawing it with us
09 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 2011: Everyone has their own style, and that makes it fun.....but to me a draw should be earned and not gifted. The not Texas band had a shot at an earned draw, but passed....and now will either be gifted a piece of the game or will suffer a solo.
09 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 2011: We had a gentlemen's agreement, and we kept it. No use in talking down on the honoring of an agreement quebec.
09 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 2011: I had opportunities to attempt a solo run, this is true. However, I could not tempt FL to attack Cuba once I was able to suggest that Cuba split his forces. I knew that any strong attack on them would result in both of them focusing on me; which would have included you.

I had zero pacific sea protection and would have been eventually pummeled in the gulf.

Basically I considered all options many times and felt that just sticking to my original agreements was the best policy in this game. I also have a tourney game starting so I want to be able to focus on that.
09 Apr 15 UTC Spring, 2012: In any case, well played all.
09 Apr 15 UTC Spring, 2012: My philosophy is that once you are decent allies with somebody, screwing them over often leads to a backfire
09 Apr 15 UTC Spring, 2012: Well, typically once I get to a point where I have a strong ally and we have good trust, I offer a race condition to the end. In our case, I didn't offer it as I expanded too quickly over you, meaning the race was already unfair.
09 Apr 15 UTC Spring, 2012: I appreciate it
09 Apr 15 UTC Spring, 2012: Of course, it would be funny if Florida hit the draw button now.....
09 Apr 15 UTC Spring, 2012: Whoooops
10 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 2012: ok i'm done playing this game. I'm just holding. Well I'll take SD, other than that I'm holding.

I trust others will do same as next year is obviously last.

Thank you for great game. See ya'll next round.
10 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 2012: btw, if you feel I'm possibly lying, look at the board. I need 11 SCs to solo. There is no possible way I'm getting 11 SCs out of this game.
10 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 2012: I'd be happy to draw right now (and hold positions, which you Texas haven't always done ;).
10 Apr 15 UTC Spring, 2013: Just surround and take Greenland first. (sorry quebec)
11 Apr 15 UTC Spring, 2014: No worries...just doing my best to be as annoying s possible.
11 Apr 15 UTC Spring, 2014: Grr
11 Apr 15 UTC Spring, 2014: ROFL...FLA you have the control....hit button whenever you get bored or offended.
11 Apr 15 UTC Spring, 2014: lol i'm neither bored nor offended. To be completely honest, i would do the same in your position
11 Apr 15 UTC Spring, 2014: be annoying that is
11 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 2014: Good game everyone! See you next round.
11 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 2014: Now, hit the button now!! Well played guys.
