06 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 1913: Tsk Tsk Tsk Austria; we always like it when the moves are less transparent.
11 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 1914: Good game Russia.
11 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 1915: Thanks for the game everyone. I'd say it makes sense I wind up here since I started the game with such little focus. I tried hard to play Austria and Italy against one another while encouraging one or both to help me with Turkey.
11 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 1915: thanks, russia.
13 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 1915: Good game, Russia.
20 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 1918: Moderator: (goldfinger0303): Hi all. It's been two years since a center changed hands and we're at a stalemate. Unless someone reaches out with a compelling rationale as to why this should keep going, I'll be force drawing this at the end of the year.
20 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 1918: You couldn't have piped in a couple of years ago? :)
20 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 1918: Moderator: (goldfinger0303): As a proud American, I had to wait until Russia was defeated to offer the draw among our European allies.
21 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 1918: Boo!!!!!! Dead to me Goldfinger! Stone cold dead!
23 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 1918: Would have like for things to get mixed up a bit but I don't think anybody else is willing to do so. Good game everyone.

24 Dec 18 UTC Guess that’s it. Good game all!
24 Dec 18 UTC Moderator: (goldfinger0303): The game has been drawn among the survivors. Frankly I'm really surprised y'all didn't try harder to eliminate others.
24 Dec 18 UTC Well played y'all.
I'm also a little surprised that there was not much of an attempt to eliminate France. Never the less, solid game.
24 Dec 18 UTC There plenty of effort to make it happen, the pivotal gatekeeper simply exercised his right not to.
24 Dec 18 UTC Thanks for the game everyone. Despite my sub-par play, it gave me some interesting lessons for my beginning game as Russia. Have to give credit to France who made themselves indispensable and managed to hold on to the word of their ally.
24 Dec 18 UTC I owe some apologies to Turkey and England. I also have to give some credit to Germany...good press and good machinations. Austria...well, it was a fitting end given my beginning.

Who is from what team, here? I obviously represented Team Canada.
24 Dec 18 UTC I'm team east coast
24 Dec 18 UTC Great game Brian. I think if we hadn’t taken so to work ourselves out those first years we could have been a very forbidable team. Thoroughly enjoyed getting a chance to know you and always great to meet another fellow Canadian.

Thane - Greatly valued our alliance, you’re one of the most loyal and honest guys I’ve had the honour to play with.

Tom - also enjoyed getting to talk with you and hope someday we get a chance to connect up for one of the Detroit area games. Wish we could have been able to talk more, just bad timing it seems.

CWag/mcbride - Alas our time was short together

THM - *shrugs*
