11 Dec 09 UTC Spring, 1901: Good luck everyone - hopefully the near midnight start won't mean time runs out before everyone has had a chance to enter orders :)
11 Dec 09 UTC Spring, 1901: yes good luck everyone!
16 Dec 09 UTC Autumn, 1902: does attackign a convoy cancel the move of the army that is being convoyed?
16 Dec 09 UTC Autumn, 1902: •If a convoy is attacked does the convoy fail?
◦No; for a convoy to fail it has to be dislodged, and there must be no other convoys the the army being convoyed can go through instead.
16 Dec 09 UTC Autumn, 1902: Help - FAQ :)
18 Dec 09 UTC Autumn, 1903: I dont mean to be the fly in the ointment here, but anyone making an alliance with France at this stage of the game (when they effectively control the Western portion of the map and have lage naval dominace) is nothing more than a pawn and does not deserve to rule any nation. France will deal with you as they dealt with England. If you have any integrity you will not have any part of the evil nation of France (by the way france if you are reading this how about you and I take on the world. I am alittle drunk now but if you talk to me tommorow we can look at attacking germany and Austria from both sides. How does that sound? - psych!).
19 Dec 09 UTC Spring, 1904: Dear Russia - it appears you are doing your best fly impression - and a can of Mortein may be in order :) To those loyal allies of France (you know who you are) I hope that my past and continuing actions and communications with each of you speak louder than Russia's falsehoods.
19 Dec 09 UTC Spring, 1904: yes please pay attention to Frances good record of honesty and credibility. Just ask England how relieable they were. Right up until ngland became to temting a target. How tempting will you be once France has dealt with England.
20 Dec 09 UTC Spring, 1904: Well rather than just being defamed by a Russia who does not know the facts of what was and was not agreed with England I will talk to everyone else seperately. To Russia - consider any arrangements we had (yes Russia privately deals with the devil he preaches against publicly) as being cancelled.
20 Dec 09 UTC Spring, 1904: You are corret. we did have an agreement. you stated you would not attack me in sweden (an agreement very easy to keep in 1901 when you had no ability at all to contest it. Sounds like it was really just trying to build trust. Nice way to pike on it publicly though. Now you will look honest when you attack there. Bravo
20 Dec 09 UTC Spring, 1904: Hmm... Amazing the number of drunk people logging in and playing Diplomacy late at night.....
20 Dec 09 UTC Spring, 1904: I wonder what is going to happen next round :)
20 Dec 09 UTC Spring, 1904: a comment from germany that i simply must share:
"i thought this game was called diplomacy - not drunken complaints"
20 Dec 09 UTC Spring, 1904: France's last comment was spoken (well, written) like a true lawyer... ;-)
20 Dec 09 UTC Spring, 1904: but we all know by now - those who accuse people of being john generally are......
20 Dec 09 UTC Spring, 1904: i'm john - there sorted
20 Dec 09 UTC Spring, 1904: a self accusation of being jumpy. but is it all a double bluff?
20 Dec 09 UTC Spring, 1904: And here I was thinking I was John.
20 Dec 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: Turkey would like to decline Germany's invitation to partake in Oktoberfest festivities as the road is blockaded. I'm sure there are many others who are more than willing to crash Germany's party (ie everyone who shares a border with Germany).
20 Dec 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: you know oktoberfest is held in munich. if i had known there was an oktoberfest invite open i would have moved accordingly!
20 Dec 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: what did i do to you turkey?
20 Dec 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: It is a strategic move to take the focus of France, because, I'm the real John...
21 Dec 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: Are people interested in pausing the game just before christmas and taking it up either between christmas and new year or after new year? If so, we all need to select "Pause" and let everyone know when they want to resume conniving [playing]...
21 Dec 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: I'm ok with that. (The pause and resume not the conniving)
21 Dec 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: It looks like France has accepted that invitation to Oktoberfest (a little late though)
21 Dec 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: Happy to pause as well so people can enjoy Christmas / New Year without having to worry about the game. Just let me know when you want me to vote for a pause.
22 Dec 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: A Pause sounds like an excellent idea. Let me know when to hit the pause button and when we're resuming.
22 Dec 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: A pause soon sounds good - merry christmas everyone
23 Dec 09 UTC Spring, 1905: I think it will only pause once all surviving players vote for a pause (and then only unpause once I all surviving players vote for an unpause) - so I have voted for a pause and I'll leave it others to decide when we want the pause to commence.
23 Dec 09 UTC Spring, 1905: PS - If anyone is sending Christmas cards to what used to be London, England, by official decree all addresses have been changed to New Paris, The French Isles.
23 Dec 09 UTC Spring, 1905: hi all anyone have a preference for pause date? or just as soon as possible?
23 Dec 09 UTC Spring, 1905: Well I have heard as soon as possible from someone else - but maybe after this phase has ticked over...
23 Dec 09 UTC Spring, 1905: Well Merry Christmas (eve) everyone! I think we still need the English to vote for a pause or get killed off before the pause will commence.
23 Dec 09 UTC Spring, 1905: Merry Christmas everyone!
24 Dec 09 UTC Spring, 1905: Merry Christmas! lets all stop our various conflicts and have a nice game of football out in no man's land
27 Dec 09 UTC Spring, 1905: Hi All, I see Danielle sent an email suggesting that we resume the game on the 4th Jan. I'm pretty happy with that.
05 Jan 10 UTC Spring, 1905: Welcome back everyone!
09 Jan 10 UTC Autumn, 1906: It is remiss of me not to have said thanks to England for playing - so thank you for fighting to the last. I promise to try to leave at least one of Cly or Yor pink out of respect to the local heritage.
14 Jan 10 UTC Autumn, 1907: Farewell brave Italy - you would certainly have been able to hold out longer against the French but for the Austrian support to Venice.
15 Jan 10 UTC Spring, 1908: what a load of rubbish, france would have taken italy in exactly the same time with or without austrian help.
21 Jan 10 UTC Sorry Germany - you were a great and loyal ally - those Austrian tanks of Ben's were just putting up too much resistance and Holland/Munich just got a bit too inviting (but I did feel guilty enough about the stab not to go for the overkill stab for Kiel and Denmark as well).
