13 May 18 UTC Spring, 1901: Moderator: (ghug): Welcome to the 2018 Gunboat Tournament!

You've been placed into seven games. If you're not in seven games, you haven't received each power exactly once, or you feel you've been put in the tournament in error, please contact me as soon as possible.

Games have been paused to ensure that nobody misses a phase due to the abnormal nature of the game starts. If you have not voted unpause by Wednesday, May 15th, I will contact you and begin docking from your seven days of allocated pause time in one day increments. If you need a pause, please let me know.

Good luck!

04 Jul 18 UTC Spring, 1905: Moderator: (bo_sox48): The missing player has been replaced and the game has been unpaused. If you have any further questions or concerns, please contact your TD.
10 Jul 18 UTC Spring, 1906: Moderator: (ghug): A player has been replaced in this game. Due to the undefined end date of the pause, I'm going to let you all unpause yourselves. If this doesn't happen within a few days, please let me know.
10 Jul 18 UTC Spring, 1906: Moderator: (ghug): Sorry, disregard. Doing some cleanup for the replacement and the wires got crossed.
24 Aug 18 UTC Good game, all.
24 Aug 18 UTC Well done Russia. Not such a good game on my part. Fall 1901 NMR is always bad. Sorry about that folks.
24 Aug 18 UTC How about the epic Journey of my last army!

GG :)
24 Aug 18 UTC I can’t exactly complain about NMRs. And well done staying alive Turkey.

Had France not stabbed when he did I was planning to draw given where I stand in this tournament. That said, it’s always fun to solo.
24 Aug 18 UTC That's rather unfortunate. I only stabbed because I saw Italy starting to NMR and didn't see any way to stop you from just pushing through to a solo.
24 Aug 18 UTC That’s the peril of gunboat. I tried to signal as well as I could with orders but I understand your decision
24 Aug 18 UTC I debated whether to make that move for quite a while, but ultimately didn't feel confident enough to rely on your goodwill
Ah well. I enjoyed working with you for as long as we did, and still also enjoyed trying to break in to the north.
