Game drawn
14 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 1905: Spring 1905: Liv-Irish
Fall 1905-forever: Irish S MAO hold

France has two fleets in the Atlantic region against three non-allied fleets. I'm sending one south to maintain parity between the Anglo-French alliance and Italy/Turkey.
14 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 1905: I'm holding you to that. Irish S MAO hold every turn for the rest of this game, no matter what?
14 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 1905: Probably. Unless France decides to move MAO to attack you sneaky Italians and needs me to move it there to cover Brest/Portugal/Spain.
14 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 1905: Hold your tongue Sir!........you should concern yourself with your own state of affairs in the Mediterranean Theater and refrain from criticizing mine!
14 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 1905: Exception noted.
14 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 1905: (My message was directed at Italy...Hehehe....
14 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 1905: My, my, France. Until you're fully out of the Mediterranean, North Africa included, YOU *are* my own state of affairs :)
18 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 1906: *GASP!* Nice move to Portugal you two.
18 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 1906: It had to be done. Good job with North Africa. I suspect that means that we're at an impasse in the Med. There's always central Europe I suppose.
18 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: All- I'm going to respectfully request a pause for the weekend, at least through mid-day Sunday. I'm going to be out of town and am not sure if I'll have reliable internet access.
18 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: ok. When should we vote?
18 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: I head out in a couple hours, so as soon as you check it would be preferable...
20 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 1907: Hit unpause when ready
20 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 1907: When do we unpause??
20 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 1907: Italy said midday Sunday.
20 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 1907: I can't get mine to unpause but maybe it's because I was eliminated already.
21 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 1907: I am on unpause
21 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 1907: Thanks for that everyone. Trip was delayed on the return but I'm back now.
21 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 1907: England needs to hit unpause
21 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 1907: Sorry. Wanted to make sure he was back first.
21 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 1907: Very much appreciated :)
21 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 1907: Allright France, let's get this over with
21 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 1907: The forces of the West shall surely triumph over those of the South.
26 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: Looks like a dead even draw to me.
27 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: It is certainly getting there.
29 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: How about we end this game with honor and draw?
29 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: But I want to unnecessarily smash against the blue wall until someone quits the game!

Ready your moves, France. I'll draw in the winter if you two thwart our attempts this one last move.
29 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: Oh Shit.! { : o
29 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: No hard feelings though.
29 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: France, don't say I didn't warn you. Those English anti-franco feelings go back a long, long way.
29 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: Okay, Turkey! Stab Italy and this game would get real interesting.....
29 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: !!!!!!!!!!

Well I might expect England to try to convince Turkey to do that, but what is this about the Finlandians whispering evils into this world!?

The alliance between the Kingdom and Italy and the Ottoman Empire will never be broken! (ignore real history: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Italo-Turkish_War)
29 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: lol
30 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 1910: Sorry France. You've been a great ally... but this is Diplomacy.

And you never know. If I attacked France, who's to say Turkey won't turn on Italy, and allow the Wicked Witch pair to divide Europe between the two of us.
30 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 1910: Cue the flying Monkeys
30 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 1910: I can't stab Italy. I am too afraid of him. You should have seen the plans he laid out all game!
30 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 1910: So true. Since we're telling all, all of those times you thought Turkey was attacking me earlier? Pure show.
30 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 1910: All arranged by him. Even my attack on Russia.
Omg. I think he is evil.
30 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: Most impressive!
30 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: Well. Key to playing Italy is playing the diplomatic game hard, not just the tactical game. Enjoyed this one a lot, all.
30 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: England your very quiet.....don't worry were still friends....everybody who took part in this game has been shown to be incredible strategist's and tacticians BRAVO!!
30 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: I'm still here.

Never thought Turkey was attacking Italy - probably because I was tunneling in on whatever war I was fighting at the moment.
30 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: I just thought you guys were turkish oil wrestling.
01 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: ok, let us draw this game and get done with it.
01 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: I don't want to turkish-oil-wrestle anyone else.
02 Oct 15 UTC England. France is dead. Let's draw.
03 Oct 15 UTC thanks for playing everyone
03 Oct 15 UTC I was going to try and push through to solo, but while I was fairly sure I could manage Spain, I determined I'd be halted at Marseilles, and had no hope of moving farther.
03 Oct 15 UTC Better admit you were scared against the prospect of merciless Turkish oil wrestling...
03 Oct 15 UTC Nah. I knew that I had an unbreakable stalemate line after the stab against France, so as long as Italy and I prevented a solo, I'd be alright.
