14 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!
17 May 18 UTC Spring, 1901: Moderator: (ghug): Unpausing because the last voter seems to be around. Let me know if you need a pause.

27 Jul 18 UTC Good game guys. Just took me a bit too long to move west.
27 Jul 18 UTC GG Russia. Pretty amazing to hold your eastern front with a mere 2 units. I'm glad we managed to draw in the end but this felt like an insane game to me.
27 Jul 18 UTC GG
28 Jul 18 UTC Should have backed off and eliminated France. Letting Italy into the MAO and backing the fleets up would have sealed it.
28 Jul 18 UTC Or you should not have failed so miserably in eliminating Italy and Turkey.
28 Jul 18 UTC Fair enough, Austria, but that sounds desperately tedious for a few extra points.
28 Jul 18 UTC Also, good effort Italy, glad I managed to juggle all assailants and push you off my side of the line again.
28 Jul 18 UTC How I survived, I dunno. Thought for sure I was done for. But happy Russia try'd to win, so I got a chance.
28 Jul 18 UTC Oh, I'm not upset that you didn't. I'm fine with any draw. I just was surprised it didn't happen.
