29 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 2003: [Europe]:Well, I can see the end of my road from here. You could say that for Europe, this is the Final Coundown.
29 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 2003: [Western-Canada]:I appreciated your humor throughout the game and I will miss it dearly. Farewell and adieu, my dear Europe <3
29 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 2003: [Europe]:Thanks, BROTHER! For those interested, you should try my strategy sometime: get a difficult country, and be bad at this game. Works like a charm every time.
03 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 2004: [Frozen-Antarctica]:Please Libya.. Let's wait out the entire Retreats phase... LoL
07 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 2005: [Europe]:Hey, since it's obvious Libya and I are going to win, I assume everyone is cool with a draw at this stage?
08 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 2005: [Frozen-Antarctica]:Sounds good
14 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 2007: [Kenya]:I'm going to move to Angola first, then I will support you into Congo next year. That cool with you?

I'm also going to move stuff to the border of the Red Sea. I don't want an amphibious invasion from India.
14 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 2007: [China]:Lol
14 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 2007: [India]:I wouldnt want any pesky Indians invade me navaly, either!
15 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 2007: [Kenya]:Oh. Oops. Well you'd all know in a few hours anyway. India, I don't want to fight you. My beef is with Elsa & Oz. But you've joined up with them. I don't think you'll attack me but I can't just leave my self open to attack. I hope you can understand where I'm coming from.
15 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 2007: [Quebec]:Oh no - I missed the move. Sorry all. That has never happened to me before... I hope it never does again.
15 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 2007: [Quebec]:Looks like a bunch of us missed it.
15 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 2007: [India]:Although I must admit I chuckled quite a bit about Frozen beeing nicknamed Elsa.
19 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 2008: [Frozen-Antarctica]:Where did that come from mr kenya ? I wanna know, elsa will have a dummy spit, LoL
20 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 2008: [Kenya]:Where did what come from? Also, I don't know what a dummy spit is.
20 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 2008: [Frozen-Antarctica]:You spring 2007 global post.. "..my beef is with Elsa and Oz..." Which India picked up on and inferred that you had used "Elsa" as a name for me. So you'd better stay away from Sth Africa, Elsa will have to attacka you..LoL
20 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 2008: [Kenya]:Yeah, you are Elsa. Are you just reading those messages now?
29 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 2010: [South-Africa]:Hello, new South-Afrivca here! And goodbye! Happy gaming!
03 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 2011: [India]:Sorry for the slip
05 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 2011: [Brazil]:Farewell everybody!
05 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 2011: [Western-Canada]:Way to put up an excellent fight Brazil. Thanks for sticking it out.
05 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 2011: [Quebec]:You did great Brazil. Very hard to crack!!
05 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 2011: [Ghana]:Receife was the key that cost you, but an excellent defence up till that point my friend.
Good game Brazil, you deserved better.
06 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 2012: [Ghana]:Sad to say but it looks like a 7 way draw unless you lads want to start stabbing each other?
06 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 2012: [Quebec]:I don't think it looks like that at all.
07 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 2012: [Frozen-Antarctica]:A five way draw is, I think, more likely.
07 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 2012: [Kenya]:More like three.
07 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 2012: [Kenya]:I mean I guess you could wait until they've moved their units, We can hold them off for a year or two but I'd rather not die while you wait for the perfect moment.
07 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 2012: [Ghana]:Come on lads, it's stab time...
07 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 2012: [Frozen-Antarctica]:OK, I like the way you guys keep trying with your spin. I think I will have a stab at somewhere beginning with a Z
07 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 2012: [Western-Canada]:Zimbabwe?
07 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 2012: [Kenya]:Zindia?
07 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 2012: [Kenya]:Zoz?
07 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 2012: [Kenya]:Zquebec?
07 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 2012: [Ghana]:My turn :- Zealand aka New Zealand... Am I right, to I win, do I get the prize?
07 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 2012: [Ghana]:Followed by Zictoria, ZNSW & ZWau...Yeah .go. go. go.
07 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 2012: [Kenya]:Zurich?
09 Oct 17 UTC [India]:Gentlemen, I know we all fought hard and well and personal antipathy is high. Looking at this board, I see different systems of allegiance and alliance which all hold their ground superbly, especially in Africa, where two friends survived an onslaught from all sides for longer than I can imagine. Looking at this board again, I cannot see one player who would not deserve to survive this match in a drawn board. Each and every one of us worked his part in his respective alliance to shape the board the way it is shaped right now.

Gentlemen, I propose such a draw, and I would be glad if you would follow my proposal.
09 Oct 17 UTC [Ghana]:I have already voted for it & I also encourage my fellow players to do the same.
It has been an excellent game played by all current survivors.
09 Oct 17 UTC [Frozen-Antarctica]:Because India has suggested a draw that includes Ghana and Kenya, and Western Canada has voted for it, I will also vote draw.
09 Oct 17 UTC [Quebec]:Sure - if everyone is drawing then I'm fine with that.
09 Oct 17 UTC [Kenya]:I will also vote for a draw.
09 Oct 17 UTC [Western-Canada]:Oz doesn't want to draw apparently.
09 Oct 17 UTC [Kenya]:They might just be afk.
09 Oct 17 UTC [Oz]:I'm in...sorry for the delay!!
09 Oct 17 UTC [Ghana]:Well played to you all. I have never played in a game where it was so hard to get anyone to break ranks. I really enjoyed playing with you all.
09 Oct 17 UTC [Kenya]:Yeah. Wow. This was a tough one. I was so desperate to get y'all to start fighting, I started talking out my ass, hopping to provoke anyone to betray the others.

This was fun.
09 Oct 17 UTC [Quebec]:That was a very good game. Regards to Kenya and Ghana for mounting such an effective defense of Africa.
09 Oct 17 UTC [Western-Canada]:gg
10 Oct 17 UTC [Frozen-Antarctica]:Well played. Thanks
