05 Nov 16 UTC Spring, 2008: [Western-Canada]:What is the center count for victory on this map?

or is it simply "Last nation standing?"
05 Nov 16 UTC Spring, 2008: [Near-East]:44 SC's to win (half plus one). It's assumed that once someone has half of the centers, they can use military might alone to conquer the rest of the world and so the game ends.
06 Nov 16 UTC Spring, 2008: [Western-Canada]:Well, yeah... I mean, when I sit down and play any strategy board game, I don't think we ever actually play to last man, one player becomes dominate and the remaining players yield.
12 Nov 16 UTC Spring, 2010: [Western-Canada]:I wish to recall the United Nations, as was stated at the start of this game.

All Surviving players, who wish to join this council, please sound off on global chat, and we can move about a divvy up the world.

Recently, colonies of British Canada, were attacked, and her units put to retreat. the nation wishes to know who might support her reclaiming of this lost land.
12 Nov 16 UTC Spring, 2010: [Frozen-Antarctica]:I will gladly assist you, my friend.
12 Nov 16 UTC Spring, 2010: [China]:In the words of Donald Trump, China. China China. ChinaChinaChinaChina.
12 Nov 16 UTC Spring, 2010: [Western-Canada]:China, ... I don't get it?

Do you mean U-S-A-U-S-A-U-S-A-U-S-A!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cause That don't work if you mean other nations cause they don't got bald eagles equipped with nukes
12 Nov 16 UTC Spring, 2010: [China]:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RbM2F-cfN0A&ab_channel=ChrisKogos
12 Nov 16 UTC Spring, 2010: [Western-Canada]:I verbally said outloud, "I hope this isn't a virus"

which... oddly enough, would totally be a legal game play move, if you were to give an enemy a virus so he could not properly submit orders.
12 Nov 16 UTC Spring, 2010: [Western-Canada]:.... Sir or Madam in control of china... thank you... you have made my life happy.
13 Nov 16 UTC Spring, 2010: [China]:Don't worry, the pollution will fix that.
13 Nov 16 UTC Autumn, 2010: [Near-East]:Does anyone know which territory controls the border in preview mode?
13 Nov 16 UTC Autumn, 2010: [Near-East]:It's obviously somewhere in Southeast Asia but I'm not sure where exactly.
13 Nov 16 UTC Autumn, 2010: [China]:Pardon?
14 Nov 16 UTC Autumn, 2010: [Near-East]:If you turn on preview mode (the >]√ button), the border that appears around the map is a specific color. Right now it's grey, but it's been different colors in different parts of the games, based on who is in control of a particular territory. It's Oz right now, but I don't know which territory specifically controls it.
14 Nov 16 UTC Autumn, 2010: [China]:THIS IS BLOWING MY MIND HOLY
14 Nov 16 UTC Autumn, 2010: [Near-East]:It's Burma.
14 Nov 16 UTC Autumn, 2010: [Western-Canada]:... its one specific territory? so in classic which is it? what if it's neutral?
14 Nov 16 UTC Autumn, 2010: [Near-East]:I think it's only in this variant, and if it's neutral it'll be the neutral color.
16 Nov 16 UTC Spring, 2011: [Western-Canada]:Friends, Fellow players, citizens of Earth.

We stand, and face a growing threat on this great planet. A threat that I believe all bordering nations should attack, for the safety of all of us. Who will join me, in an attack against The Near East? He has stolen my lands, and moved against China, he will come after your sons and daughters.

I have seen the future, and if we do nothing, the near east will come into your homes, burn your women and rape your churches! who here will step fourth in this most holy crusade against the tyrannies of evil?
16 Nov 16 UTC Spring, 2011: [China]:China, China, ChinaChinaChina, China China.
16 Nov 16 UTC Spring, 2011: [Western-Canada]:awesome.

Kinda proud at that BS I typed out an hour ago.
16 Nov 16 UTC Spring, 2011: [Western-Canada]:Ghana, Oz, Quebec, I call upon you now, in our time of need... Assault the heathen and rid us forever of the plague that is the destroyer of our land!

"One who kills an infidel shall find his sins forgiven." -Pope Urban the Second, in his recruitment of the first crusade.
17 Nov 16 UTC Spring, 2011: [Near-East]:High words from one engaged in an act of treachery themselves.
17 Nov 16 UTC Autumn, 2011: [India]:"do unto others before they do unto you" that is another quote from that period i think.
;)
17 Nov 16 UTC Autumn, 2011: [Western-Canada]:... you're only about 1,000 years too early... one was Jesus. the other was Jesus' corrupt spokesman while he was away.
22 Nov 16 UTC Autumn, 2012: [Western-Canada]:This is basically an out of game question: What time is it proper to draw? I think we have clear losers and winners and did okay-ers on the scale, but is this map supposed to go until their is just one or two utter titans left?

If we all drew now, all but one of us would not profit points wise.
22 Nov 16 UTC Autumn, 2012: [Argentina]:Well I'm certainly okay with drawing now :D
22 Nov 16 UTC Autumn, 2012: [Quebec]:La nation glorieuse du Québec ne se rendra jamais! Les gens du québec se battront jusqu'à ce que la dernière goutte de sang se répande! Vive le québec!
22 Nov 16 UTC Autumn, 2012: [Quebec]:But I generally when I play I tend to keep going until I hit a stalemate or lose.
22 Nov 16 UTC Autumn, 2012: [China]:Why don't we all just take a page out of Trump's book and concede to China?
22 Nov 16 UTC Autumn, 2012: [Near-East]:I'll draw once I think I can capture no more centers.
24 Nov 16 UTC Spring, 2013: [Kenya]:I FUCKING CALLED IT!!!!!!!!!


I want my $20, Western Canada stabbed Quebec.
24 Nov 16 UTC Spring, 2013: [Quebec]:Lol that was like three turns ago
24 Nov 16 UTC Spring, 2013: [Western-Canada]::To be fair Kenya, I really didn't want to... I just was not growing ANYWHERE else
27 Nov 16 UTC Spring, 2014: [China]:Overtime OP.
27 Nov 16 UTC Spring, 2014: [Argentina]:There is still red on the map! Argentina lives on!
28 Nov 16 UTC Spring, 2014: [Quebec]:Government in exile.
05 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 2016: [Western-Canada]:Looks like Ole BC has got himself in quite a pickle.
05 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 2016: [China]:That's what he gets for stabbing! If by some miracle I'm allowed into the draw of the big three, I'll call that a successful government takeover.
06 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 2016: [Western-Canada]:The only person I outright stabbed was Quebec, and, as you can see from the group chat above, ... I felt it was my only option.

And, French Canada and myself have talked it out... I do like him as a person. (From what dialog we've exchanged, and I feel bad about that stab.
06 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 2016: [China]:Apparently, he felt worse :P
06 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 2016: [Quebec]:¯\_(ツ)_/¯
06 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 2016: [China]:NEVER SAVE JESUS WHAT'S WRONG WITH ME
07 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 2016: [Western-Canada]:Quebec, I just now realized there was Katakana half way in that smile XD
16 Dec 16 UTC Spring, 2019: [Western-Canada]:Welp.

its been fun. Quebec, Congratulations.
16 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 2019: [China]:Yep, GG. I almost turned the alliance topsy turvy. I'll chalk that up to a personal victory.
18 Dec 16 UTC [Ghana]:Good game folks, let's draw.
18 Dec 16 UTC [Quebec]:Good game all.
