13 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1901: Greetings everyone. Before we turn nasty one to another and our swords begin dripping with blood, I'd like to say hello and good luck!
13 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1901: Good luck!
15 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Busy day, everyone only got short replies, sorry
15 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1902: You got your builds in. That's what counts.
16 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1902: Ach - many apologies everyone!
17 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1902: Bah. Come on folks!
19 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1903: England, why cancel?
19 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1903: I put it up when Italy NMRed thinking we would have a CD and forgot I had it up. Thnx
22 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1904: Hmm. If there's an Italian CD, what are your thoughts? I generally draw or cancel this early, but I know there are wildly differing views on this subject.
23 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1904: I find myself in the awkward and unhappy position of wishing the worst for Italy, yet relying on him for survival...
well, I did anyway. Not anymore, evidently.
23 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1904: Gotta love Diplomacy!
23 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: This is stupid. My draw/cancel are up
23 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: Italy missing moves does skew the board.
24 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: mine as well, obviously
24 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: Everyone - apologies for disappearing. I was unexpectedly without internet at the weekend. I'm afraid I have skewed the game by giving the juggernaut an easy path into the Med. All I can do now is promise to do my best against them - not with an expectation of survival but purely to keep this game going. Again, sorry...
24 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: NMRs are a natural part of the gamę, dont worry!
24 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: Or we could draw or cancel... Just sayin'
24 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: Once there were three brothers, each jealous and petty in their own way, they each saw what the other had and craved it for themselves. They fought each other violently and unceasingly until one of their battles brought them to a mountain top. From this lofty perch they could see a flood approaching with hues of purple and yellow. They looked and their eyes were opened, they had been fighting each other for small gains while devastation approached for them all. And so the brothers looked past their petty differences ceased their infighting and decided to build a dam together, that by building this dam they could hold back the flood that would destroy them all.

24 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: Allan Calhamer! Classic!
24 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: I am liking this new approach
25 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: well, i'd like to say: good game, and thanks everybody, but i'm afraid that wasn't one of my better ones. till next time. and good luck everybody...
25 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: thanks!
28 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: This game has been an absolute disaster
28 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: Turkey probably wouldn't agree with that.
14 Sep 15 UTC Russia, Italy, you guys are slackers for not trying to get into Galicia.
15 Sep 15 UTC Stay in the north England
You may get hurt in the south
15 Sep 15 UTC Apparently! That was quite a shock, entering into the hurly burly of you southern Powers...
15 Sep 15 UTC Well, Thanks for the good game. I must confess surprise at the ending of it.
16 Sep 15 UTC Yes, it shouldn't have ended until Turkey was dead
16 Sep 15 UTC it was a bit frightening after i stabbed russia to see everyone gang up on me - russia and france perhaps just a little too trusting - but i was surprised to see france help england after being stabbed - i was hopping for a little more time
16 Sep 15 UTC Glad to survive that one, after missing a turn and finding myself facing a juggernaut.
It was a good stab from Turkey I thought, but an even better one (which I encouraged) from England.
France: it seemed obvious to me you and Turkey were going to come for me together. Your fourth fleet build convinced me to resist you and ensure England won.
Perhaps the most memorable thing about this game though were the messages from Russia who, while tenacious in not giving up, was also pessimistic. After every turn he used the same phrase - "we are doomed". Which was hilariously morale-boosting.
Good game all...
16 Sep 15 UTC My apologies go to Italy, the messages were way too personal but nethertheless justified given you survived thanks to my fleets and yet you encouraged England to stab me; the fourth fleet WAS meant to oppress Turkey. In other words, Italy, you cost us a match, and 40 points myself. But I truly enjoyed the match with a blast from side of England, I can't remember when the last time I had to disband four units in one turn.
16 Sep 15 UTC Davidc1 I was expecting you to hae more time also. I wasn't quite expecting France to concede, although the move for a survive makes sense after four disbands. Faced with two significant solo threats it wasn't an easy call. The fact that Russia was so dogged in his resistance played in my favor some though StP is so invulnerable that I am not sure what Russia could have done
16 Sep 15 UTC Interesting, France - a miscommunication / misunderstanding / misinterpretation we could both reflect on.
