13 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: Lookls lie R left his fly open and T is going in for a closer look..
13 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: Weird analogy but ok :p
13 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: Russia felt bad for Turkey's predicament and decided to give space!
14 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1905: Omg wtf am i doing, I holy shit
14 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1905: I have no more to say
19 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: I just noticed " dargoygel" sounds a lot like Gargomel the evil wizard who wanted to kill smurfs....

I note also that France ( like the Smurfs) is blue in colour ....

coincidence....I think not..
19 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: Did that No Self Support World Map game ever get started?
19 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: I DO hate smurfs! Wow... what a random connection! I also hate hobbits, in case anyone cares...
19 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: I got a MODERN up but then a lot of folks said they joiuned not knowing the rule . So I will do a forum pst with password next time..
20 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: I am time limited at present... I am very interested in playing if it starts when this one finishes.
I liked this a lot.
It changes.... everything...
20 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: I would be keen even just to redeem myself for this apalling performance :P but omg its so much work
20 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1907: I am in too.
20 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1907: cool I will wait till this one is over .

24hr phase or 36??
20 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1907: 24 is enough I believe,
20 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1907: Good Game, Condescension!
20 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1907: Hmm. Was it? :P
20 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1907: :-) In a generic sort of complimentary way, yes...
20 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1907: You've got a very spicy Lepanto alliance going, you should be proud
20 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1907: Alliance? What alliance? Just a lot of coincidences... and a good and helpful Austria and England...
20 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1907: We had a good understanding with Italy, and back in 1901 when I was still taking stock of my surroundings, I had also asked you as Turkey for an agreement. You didn't answer. Especially in this variation, trust and good cooperation is everything. And the reason I like it most.
23 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: cheers Austria.
23 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1908: Thanks for playing, Russia! Some early mistakes cost you... but you were a loyal co-worker. Hope to play with you again some time.
24 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1908: fair thee well Russia.
24 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1908: :)
24 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1908: Yea my downnfall was my fault, Manny mistakes and very basic oversights saw this game go from one where I was a major power to a complete flop, but yes I enjoyed playing in the shorrt time I was here. May have to join a game like this agaion with u :)
25 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1908: I will have to bounce LON this turn.
25 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1908: ohh that was public oops.
25 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1908: What public? I see nothing...
25 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1908: Guys I think England did that on purpose so france won't try and take London...
25 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1908: @conspiracy theories w/ scrub
25 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1908: Jesus ..Im not that good but thanks for the idea ...How does it work..??
25 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1908: HAHA England w/ the next level plays, im done guyz, I resign
25 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1908: Germany... can't just resign. If you want to help shorten the inevitable... move Swe to Fin... and Bel to Ruh.... and mun to sil...
25 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1908: Gamethrowing is degenerate!
25 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1908: I'm with turrkey
25 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1908: (I wasn't serious... I need a sarcasm font...)
25 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1908: ohhh reaaaly you neeed a font for that ........... # scarcasm 101.

:-)
26 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1908: I mean, if you guys want I'm willing to take the solo
26 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1908: Ya know, I've gotta take one for the team every now and then
26 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1909: Good Game, France
27 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1909: SKA to SWE for me please support.
Ruhr to MUN please support.
If LIVORNIA goes to St Peters it will block a tricky germany
HEILO and DEN bounce in KIEL.

Thoughts ??.
28 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1909: While it is odd to see this in public... :-) I concur.
28 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1909: 34 left 3 as allies I hope its ok..

Trying to break German spirits as well.
01 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 1911: Well done, allies. Well... almost done.
Thanks everyone. I was challenged and enjoyed greatly this interesting way of playing the game.
01 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 1911: Out of curiosity, why not finish off England? There's 0 risk of your opponent soloing, so why not go for the 2-way?
01 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 1911: Good question... and my answer will display the inner workings of my mind. To me, this is more than a mathematical game. It is a game of relationship. I tend to choose an ally early, and stick with that ally, even though I often appear to have other alliances that I don't stick with. The early ally is usually a result of early communications and perhaps (lately) intentions of trying something odd or unique (I haven't had many Italian/Austrian alliances... and hoped to try one here, and William's early communications seemed to promote that.) I also was interested in an Italian/Turkish alliance... having almost never done that. But you and I didn't seem to communicate well early on. Meanwhile, as the game progresses, I don't enjoy breaking alliances. I do, it of course... but the longer the game, the less likely I am to do so. Unless I intended to from the start. Anyway... this is a weakness, perhaps. And why I don't have 'wins' accumulated. I play this game in person a lot more than on line... and I find it easier to stab in person in endgame. I expect to play in here with many of you again... and don't want a stabber reputation. Not that I would never do it.... At any rate, in this game, I was not inclined to stab England. It took us a long time to build up trust. Really. Like even last year...

Sorry for the long answer, Condescension... probably more than you were looking for. I didn't mean it to sound as patronizing as I fear it did.
01 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 1911: Forgot that this was non-anon, makes sense in that case. Well played.
01 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 1911: Yes... dat be true. If it were anon, I would have been pushing Austria to agree to a two-way.

Actually, all this is dangerous. This game is not done! Oops...
10 Oct 17 UTC Its done
