Game won by ESchellhorn (190 D)
13 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1901: hahaha nice. sadly my chances for backstabbing are pretty low since no one trusts me anymore.
13 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1901: I forgot why I hate this game so much. So much waiting around.
13 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1901: I forgot why I hate this game so much. So much waiting around.
13 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1901: Riesling? Come on bud - everyone was excited to start this thing.
13 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1901: Indeed no one trusts Ed anymore; the VW scandal was outrageous. Retribution!
13 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1901: Good point Matt you Turkey. Not only does he back stab, he pollutes too. I wonder in what "allies" he has planted a defeat device.
13 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Just for the record, Chancellor, I control Syria and my people are on their way to Germany ASAP.
14 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: So my morning coffees are back staring at this screen again, noticing how many times Dave keeps rechecking the board.
15 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: do we have a time for when this advances on Wednesdays and Sundays? are we all generally thinking afternoon/evening that day? noon? just curious. Go ahead, Pat, cue the comments about Ed being a dirty backstabbing villain who no one can trust... but this did seem like a legitimate question.
15 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: I think mid-day would be better so we can get in fights during work hours. Think of the cage match that will ensue in FINRA Enforcement when Jeff storms over to Ed's cube after his Danish fleet invades London in the Spring of 1903.
16 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: A flute with no holes is not a flute. A donut with no holes is a Danish. You (and Ed) would be wise to remember that.
16 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Good point. But I prefer the following: outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend. But inside of a dog it's too dark to read... Keep that in mind. The midday thing could be fun since many of us would be in person to talk about moves when they occur on Wednesdays. But I'm good with whatever.
17 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Typical Russian lack of coordination and organization. I guess Will's carrier pigeon is still en route to the WebDiplomacy server farm.
21 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1902: will, are you aware that sweden is a supply center, not Finland?
21 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1902: Pat, are you aware that Roman tanks can't float in the Tyrrhenian Sea?
21 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1902: That's no moon [tank]. It's a space station [duck].

21 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1902: Outstanding, Baron von Hapberg. If Pat converts his tank into one of those, Europe is his for the plucking.
26 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1902: Glad to see that the first two backstabs of the game were (1) Troost stabbing Jeff and me in the back, and (2) Justin stabbing me in the back. Payback for the one game I won two years ago which everyone has so rightly pointed out repeatedly so I clearly deserve this.
27 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1902: What do we have to do now to move forward with this game? Does it have something to do with Draw, Pause, Cancel?
04 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: We should have done the mail correspondence version of the game, it would have moved a little quicker.

Plus I enjoy picturing Covey sitting in a dark wood office near a fire, wearing a tweed jacket, smoking a pipe and sipping a glass of brandy, looking through a magnifying glass at hand written letters from Troost containing a wax seal.
04 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: You forgot to mention that those letters would also have to be decoded.
04 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: Hahaha
06 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: Italians need to capture and execute their leader; what foolishness. Only hope Russia is less trusting.
13 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 1904: The Austrians, Italians and Turkeys stalling. Let's get a move on boys.
16 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 1904: yikes. thats not good.
16 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: Austria is going to take Munich this turn from Italy unless Germany contributes all forces to Munich or strikes a one-time alliance with Italy / France.
17 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: Yep.
18 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: Placing bets on the Silesia to Warsaw backstab.
18 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: Likelihood on this fall 1904 turn:
Any Austrian country to Munich: 93%
Silesia to Warsaw - 50%
Rumania to Bulgaria - 15%
Bulgaria to Rumania - 1%
Greece to Serbia (for future invasion of Russia): 28%
St. Petersburg becoming pink: 100%
Portugal becoming pink: 100%
Spain becoming pink: 100%
Munich having nowhere to retreat and dorced to disband: 91%
Any Turkish territory becoming Red or Purple: 3%
19 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: That was the greatest use of statistical analysis I have ever read. I almost feel like this should be done every turn. Kind of makes sense that Germans would use some type of math in the game.
24 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 1905: Looking forward to us making some moves after Thanksgiving.

Covey, if you spend your holiday with Steuart Martens then remember:
He always goes scissors in rock-paper-scissors.
25 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 1905: Troost, stop robocalling Joe LaMicela by Friday pm.

(he moved to Cantor Fitzgerald btw)

Get a move in by at least late this week.
27 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 1905: Turkey has been trying to get an alliance with Russia since the beginning of the game; guess shooting down one of his fighter jets isn't going to help. #oops.
30 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: Turkey: hanging in there really strong.
03 Dec 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: Everyone, I hope to finalize my moves shortly; responding to an offer from a hostile nation. -Turkey
03 Dec 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: Uh oh Covey or Will. Whichever one of you he's not referring to is getting the freeze out right about now.
03 Dec 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: two and a half hours later...

anyone want to vote to "draw" on this thing with me? the one move per week thing followed by the non-stop saving and unsaving of moves is getting boring. we can restart with a new game for people who actually want to play.

besides, it would spare us all the suspense of watching as covey drags this on for another three months before jeff eventually beats him thanks to russian ineptitude. yes, use that hatred against me will, please, the more you attack me the less you have to spend holding off jeff. really, I want you to - it will end things faster...
07 Dec 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: Pat, that was fairly cold blooded what you just did to Justin. He said to take one of his territories, not all of his territories. Can't you count?
07 Dec 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: Pat, that was fairly cold blooded what you just did to Justin. He said to take one of his territories, not all of his territories. Can't you count?
07 Dec 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: i mean he told me he was going to give up venice like four turns ago
08 Dec 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: Like the Grand Armee and the Wermacht (as well as others) before me, I appear to have been turned back at the gates of Moscow in the cold of winter. I hope my troops are not too devastated by this setback. Luckily, Troost has no Vasily Zaytsev in his ranks.
08 Dec 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: Try getting a reservation at Dorsia now, Covey.
18 Dec 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: Stoltz, Looks like the Garnd Armee has returned with a Navy.
18 Dec 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: I am not the Grand Armee. That was Mnsr. Bonaparte. But yes, I couldn't get in through the front door, so now I'm trying another way.

Back door huh? Good idea.
04 Jan 16 UTC Autumn, 1907: That was a nice sneak attack over the holidays.
04 Jan 16 UTC Autumn, 1907: You're the Hessians, we're the Colonials. Don't mess with us on Christmas.

(also, you should have put your orders in before, like everyone else managed to)
05 Jan 16 UTC Autumn, 1907: BTW, Russia doesn't even celebrate Christmas until January 7 so really confused why they were so asleep; also re-establishes my surprise of why Austria chose her as an ally in the first place. Recently noticed that Harbaugh had a lot to say on the strategic decision: "Do not be deceived. You reap what you sow."
14 Jan 16 UTC Autumn, 1907: GameMaster: eltiothehun was banned: meta/no response. The time until the next phase has been extended by one phase length to give an opportunity to replace the player.
Remember to finalize your orders if you don't want to wait, so the game isn't held up unnecessarily!
14 Jan 16 UTC Autumn, 1907: GameMaster: siddartha22 was banned: meta/no response.
14 Jan 16 UTC Autumn, 1907: Austria and England have been banned from war? But Mom.............
