20 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: I tried to read each of your posts but don't know much about the subject so now I just read past them. That is a trick to use in the future, making secret messages in Global by discussing a technical subject.
20 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: I personally like it. I'm a fan of learning languages--hence my knowledge of Spanish and koine Greek. I'd like to learn Hebrew and Bosnian as well, although such a lofty goal is still at least a long way off.
21 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: Bosnian? Do you mean Serbo-Croatian?
21 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: Anyway, I only wanted to point out the origins of the name Istanbul actually predate the Turkish conquest of Constantinople (1453), and probably also the Italian (1204), in response to Italy's intention to "rename" the City :)
22 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: Well it definitely predates the Italian conquest of 1910.
22 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: Constantinople wasn't conquered in 1910 as far as I know
22 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: Breaking news: Russia no longer has only three centres!
After ten years of fighting, Russia is back at its 1900 level with four units on the map.
22 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: Woohoo!!!
22 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: Congratulations :)
23 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: FYI, there's a celebration feast at Moscow tonight. You all are invited.
23 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: Lies. Lets just stay out of mother russia for now.
25 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1911: Correction, Moscow will be having a celebration feast, but none of you are invited.
25 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1911: Might as well finish the rest of the game here.
26 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1911: Hey all, if this game isn't finished by next Friday, could I get a pause between July 31st (Friday) through Monday August 3rd? My brother is getting married, I'm best man, it's out of state, and he's missing his blowup doll.
26 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1911: Fine with me.
27 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1911: Go for it.
30 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1912: I put in a pause vote so that whenever Italy needs the pause, he can just click it.
31 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1912: I didn't hear back about the east so I'll go safe and support an attack on MOS to hold position there.
In the west I'll just hold.
31 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1912: Oops.
31 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1912: oops?
04 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1912: I'm back, so we can unpause and hopefully finish this thing.
04 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1912: Cool!
04 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1912: We could always 4 way this once Turkey is out :P
04 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1912: We could ...
04 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1912: ... We could also play to a 3-way!
04 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1912: Turkey's still alive and active :)

Besides, if you really want a smaller draw, you could easily take out Russia in a single turn:
Pru S Sil->War
StP S Liv->Mos
Gal->Rum, Bla S Ukr->Sev
05 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1912: Are we going to unpause ever?
05 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1912: Ask Germany :)
05 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1912: Sorry for the delay friends - I have had some internet troubles. I will get started this afternoon.
06 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1912: Three out of five, a majority, has voted for a draw. England, Italy, we could end this game now :)
06 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1912: No thanks.
06 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1912: I think a 4 way is more likely, although a 3 way looks like it will happen. It isn't too late to join Italy and I germany!
07 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1912: Goodbye, everyone! Apparently I'm not really good at leading Turkey. This game has doubled my number of eliminations :)
To those who'll advance into the next round, good luck with the tournament, and most importantly, have fun!
07 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1913: Nice playing with you man.
07 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1913: Well Turkey you didn't lie, good game Italy.
07 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1913: I didn't want to eliminate you. Once I was fully stalemated, it simply had to be. I apologize for the deception.
07 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1913: Look forward to chatting with you outside of the game.
07 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1913: Same here. I'm pretty sure I know who everyone is, but there may be some surprises yet.
07 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1913: Hey good game everyone. Sorry Russia for the late bump there, but I believe I did tell you at least five years ago that would happen!
07 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1913: To be honest, I was planning on trying for the solo for several years. Once the window closed for certain, I did what I had to do.
07 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1913: Russia, Turkey, I did really enjoy playing with you both when things were good. Both of you handled defeat far better than I do.

Turkey, you gave me a run for my money for a while. I do believe that when we next play each other, things will turn out different. I loved your press and play style
08 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1913: That was a great effort by Italy, and probably within two turns of a solo had Germany and I not worked it out between us to close of that option. A lot of fun - look forward to the next one!
08 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1913: I kick myself for not taking Mar when I had the chance. I wonder how it would have turned out.
08 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1913: Keep in mind that I may have just run into the Mediterranean then. But it's hard to say now ...
08 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1913: By the way, this is the last unfinished game of the first round.
08 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1913: Yes it is. I also get the feeling Germany made the tourney cut by 1 point.
08 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1913: We're about to find out!
08 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1913: We were cruising along with quick orders, then BAM! Germany doesn't put in a build order. Did you go on vacation or something?
08 Aug 15 UTC Just waiting on England.
08 Aug 15 UTC nice playing with all of you!
