04 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1901: Nice title for this one.
04 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1901: It just worked out.
04 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1901: Gl to you
07 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1905: I feel a stalemate coming, let's see.
07 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1905: Wishful thinking, my friend.
12 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: Tense stuff.
12 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: I needed that build, the bounce in Norway was bad.
12 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: You think you should have just let me into Norway and taken StP? Might have thrown me out of position.
12 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: *I mean, taken Moscow.
12 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1908: The fleet build is way better for me.
13 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1908: So many choices...
14 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1908: One of us will guess wrong; the other will surely guess right.
14 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1908: I've already guessed right, it's just up to you to guess wrong.
14 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1908: Oh dang, I could have had either one!
14 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1909: Not much left to do now, I suppose. How long do you think it will take you to mop up Turkey? Three years?
15 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1909: It's unlikely but possible for me to win, seems pretty likely you can.
15 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1909: I think a win is possible either way, but requires a miscalculation, mis-timing or misorder in the winner's favor.

I like all the second- third- and fourth-guessing in this. It's much more chess-like.
15 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1909: It would be interesting to try a series of 2-country match-ups. I bet there's at least one other pairing that's more balanced than Germany v. Italy.
15 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1909: I'm enjoying this, I'd play a couple more!
15 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1909: I'm curious if we can make it more even: http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=206522

15 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1909: Wow
16 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1910: Oh no.
16 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1910: You want a convoy to Yorkshire to avoid destruction? It'll be just like "Dunkirk"
19 Sep 17 UTC Couple of lucky guesses swayed this one for me. Almost didn't happen. Thank you for the game!
19 Sep 17 UTC You had better unit tempo, I was grabbing dots one center away from my home territories until the last turn, which I'm pretty sure is unacceptable if you want to win and aren't crushing.

Fun game, thank you!
