~Sun 12 Nov UTC Spring, 1901: Sorry for delays in talks with everyone, weekends are always hard cause I'm on a mobile only and messaging isn't the greatest on a mobile platform...lol
~Mon 13 Nov UTC Autumn, 1901: I'm really impressed with y'all so far. I don't think I've played a game in ages where nobody has lied to me during the first turn.

Seems like you're all a particularly honest bunch.
~Mon 13 Nov UTC Autumn, 1901: So Turkey taking the Black Sea was not a stab?
~Mon 13 Nov UTC Autumn, 1901: Turkey told me he'd be moving to Black Sea and essentially refusing my request to DMZ it. I hate bouncing in Black Sea, so I accepted it as a necessary evil.

Things are tense in the south. But so far not dishonest.
~Mon 13 Nov UTC Autumn, 1901: Tense? I didn't even move to Armenia.
~Mon 13 Nov UTC Autumn, 1901: I must say as well, not even one person lied to me so far.

The opening moves in the west are pretty standard but some of the openings in the south/east unusual, I'm intrigued.
~Mon 13 Nov UTC Autumn, 1901: Yeah, we tend to be boring in the west. :P
~Mon 13 Nov UTC Autumn, 1901: I've mentioned to a couple people that I'm on vacation right now.
While its sort of a vacation, its also a trip to visit a medical specialist for some health problems. I'm going in for a treatment today, and will most likely be in a considerable amount of pain for the rest of the day with no ability to type. I'm going to send as much press as I can right now, and I'll get back to you all as soon as I can, using voice to text if necessary. Just figured I'd give you all adequate warning/
~Mon 13 Nov UTC Autumn, 1901: Good luck with your treatment! I hope it goes well.
~Mon 13 Nov UTC Autumn, 1901: Thanks
~Mon 13 Nov UTC Autumn, 1901: Sorry to hear that! Hope all went well!
~Mon 13 Nov UTC Autumn, 1901: Are we wanting to do EoGs?
~Mon 13 Nov UTC Autumn, 1901: EoG = End of Game statement = A personal summary of the game, explaining strategy and thoughts about how it went down.
~Mon 13 Nov UTC Autumn, 1901: I'm in.
~Mon 13 Nov UTC Autumn, 1901: Yeah I usually do that, even for gunboat games. That's how I learned to get better, was other players doing those and I learned from them.
~Mon 13 Nov UTC Autumn, 1901: Yeah I'm game, I've never really done one before, but as long as I remember to I'll definitely write one.
~Mon 13 Nov UTC Autumn, 1901: Then it's generally a good idea to take notes on each phase, so you actually remember the decisions you made and why. The Notes tab is great for this.
~12:27 AM UTC Good game all. I'm done. When everyone decides to dog pile I'm not really sure there's much to be done except give props where it's due, and accept reality.

Great opening move France and Italy, that was played well.

Great stab England, you're very good at lying and I hope France and Russia take that into consideration.

I'm sorry to have stabbed you Russia by blocking Sweden, that was one of my worst moves to date.

I wish everyone good luck as they continue on, I'll finish my part out and will always accept press, but I am not a great negotiator in press and realize I'm in far too deep to recover.
~01:36 AM UTC Thanks for being a good sport
~11:50 AM UTC No problem, I'm in no way giving up, just understanding the spot I'm in and getting part of my end of game statement out of the way early lol. I hate it when people give up cause the board isn't in their favor anymore, so I'm playing this until my units say 0 and I can't build again :)
