Game won by AJTrenkle (155 D)
08 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1905: England takes Edinburgh - sounds like #FAKENEWS. Who you gonna believe me or your own eyes!
08 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1905: Clint has truly lost his way in this game. So far gone, he is beyond redemption.
08 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1905: Wrong! My supporters love me so much I could walk into the middle of times square and openly support a child molester for Congress and they would still vote for me.
08 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1905: I noticed you used the plural of supporter. I assume that was a typo?
11 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: Those Italians are holding up the game again. Trenkle!!
12 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1907: Come on Germany
12 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1907: Does it warm anyone else's heart that England and Germany have rekindled their romance? And just in time for the holiday season.
12 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1907: They really are the Bonnie and Clyde of Diplomacy. Too bad this game will turn out the same for them as things did for Bonnie and Clyde.

13 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: France you ignorant slut. They were always in it together. That is the one constant of diplom Maine style. Peters and Pozkozim in it together... how...why....
No one knows. The just are.
13 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: Gee, I attacked both England and Germany and I am shocked they are willing to work together to destroy me #Frenchlogic
13 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: France wondering why Clint and I are working together is great. He attack’s me and helps Italy into Munich and then wonders why. I really had no choice as I was fighting Russia then France and Italy. Not many others to ally with.
13 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: You two are great. Always bridesmaids, never brides. I hope you enjoy Andy's win. I know I will.
13 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: You are starting to sound a lot like Kura!
13 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: I don't think I have ever seen Kura and Kacprowski at the same time? Is Kacprowski Kura and Kura Kacprowski?
13 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: Finkle is Einhorn!
13 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: First, I quoted Ace first... see the above post. Second, I have never seen Kura and Kac in the same place come to think of it...
13 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: You quoted SNL......or paraphrased, rather, Dan Akroyd speaking to Jane Curtain on Weekend Update.
13 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: You know who we should invite to play next game - Dave Halpert. He would fit right in with you bunch of toppers.
13 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: “Peters and Pozkozim in it together... how...why....” OR ‘Finkel and Einhorn, in it together how why?’ Before he realizes they are the same person...
13 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: Next on Miami Vice... Crockett gets the boss a coffee.’
13 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: I don't get the Dave Harpert reference
14 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: Long term sub for Durkin back in 2005. He was the stupidest, laziest asshole this side of the Mississippi. He made me look genteel in comparison. His claim to fame is two fold: He is a topper, any story you tell he has a similar but better and more outlandish version. He would say viciously horrible things to anyone in earshot including accusing Wegrzyn of have an STD and that Andy’s mother was a sodomite but with much more colorful language. To his credit he does have an encyclopedic knowledge of movies from the 90’s and a knack for poker.
14 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: Ah yes....I believe I heard stories about him playing in a poker game

15 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1908: Halpert would tell that so much better
19 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1910: 7+6+5 > 14+2
19 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1910: Nothing gets by you Clint.
19 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1910: Well, France certainly didn't get by me
20 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1911: my bad on the delay last round... I thought I had clicked ready
20 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1911: right . . . trying to stall so Turkey can't gut you as quickly?
20 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1911: No I was worried about Peters being too depressed during this holiday season after his game has come undone and even Clint has betrayed him. Did you know that the holidays often see an increase in depression? Many people feel a sense of emptiness which is magnified by undiagnosed seasonal affect disorder. Check it out at kevinhansen.com http://kevinhansen.com/
20 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1911: Kevinhansen.com also sells a great holiday cologne "Smell like a wrestler" - in case anyone is looking for a last minute gift.
20 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1911: No depression here. I am doing good. In a couple of days I will be on a beach sipping cocktails in the warm sun. By the way, you don't see me calling for a draw. I can admit defeat and don't feel as if we all need trophies or something.
21 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1911: This is so damn touching...Clint and Peters standing together and supporting each other until the bitter, bitter end. You two remind me a lot of that old couple that die holding hands in the final scene of The Notebook. James Garner and...well, I forget the actress. But she had dementia in the movie, which makes my analogy even more fitting.
22 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1912: Although I may end up 1st loser, unless Clint can scavenge enough from Peters’ corpse,the global message board has been worth the price of admission. Merry Christmas to all... except Peters and his sunny beach. Lazy teachers. Must be nice. Hope this tax cut puts you blue staters in your place.
22 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1912: All I want for Christmas is a picture of Turkey with his "First Loser" Medal! Enjoy the break!
22 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1912: Nothing unifies people like stomping on the throat of their enemy. Happy holidays everyone. I look forward to round five in 2018.
22 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1912: I concur with Hansen for once. The global board has been great, although Clint has asked Carl about a safe space here at East at least twice in the past few weeks.
22 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1912: He was also upset about tax reform and how he would not be able to deduct all his property taxes. Interesting, only because he is like 35, married with 2 children and still lives at home so he doesn't pay those anyway.
22 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1912: This is so great.
24 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1912: I do own property and my property taxes pay your salaries you lazy teachers. I will be writing my local board member immediately about this.
24 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1913: Is this school board member asleep in the next room watching Hannity
30 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1915: Italy - You better vote draw while you are ahead. Otherwise I think the three allied nations will destroy you and then split the pot!
30 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1915: This map is a mess.

-Warm regards, France
30 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1915: England is the only one voting for a draw right? I am happy to spread Roman culture all over Europe. You are all welcome.
30 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1915: Your Roman culture smells a bit fascistic.
03 Jan 18 UTC Autumn, 1916: With Turkey out I concede. Italy wins. Good game all. Happy new year and may the odds be ever in your favor.
07 Jan 18 UTC Congrats to Italy
