22 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 2006: I'm just so happy that Mexico's decision to stab me is proving to be a mistake
23 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 2007: Cuba, could you put in the pause vote?
24 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 2007: @BC: i think you can ask the mod for a pause!
24 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 2007: @BC: i think you can ask the mod for a pause!
24 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 2007: done
24 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 2007: Happy holidays everyone
24 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 2007: You too
24 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 2007: Yeah Merry Christmas guys
25 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 2007: Are we not pausing then, BC? You're the one we're waiting on now
25 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 2007: Oh oops! Sorry I thought I had put in the vote!
25 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 2007: We are paused. I put in my unpause. Merry Christmas folks and safe travels.
26 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 2007: My unpause is now in too chaps. I think BC wanted to go to new year but we all may as well unpause
01 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 2007: Hi everyone! Happy 2019! Shall we get this game rolling again?
01 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 2007: My vote is in
05 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 2007: Are we restarting this?
05 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 2007: Have put in a vote for draw in case people want to end it that way
05 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 2007: Looks like we're waiting on British Columbia again.
05 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 2007: Sorry everyone, I’ve been traveling.
10 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2008: Just so everyone knows, I’m getting on a 12 hour flight today and won’t be reachable
10 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2008: Anyone for a 4 way draw once heartland Peru and Mexico are done?
11 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 2009: Christ. Guys you do realise youre handing British Columbia a solo on a plate
12 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2009: GUYS LOOK, THE BOOGIEMAN!!! Easy my dude, I’m only one higher than NY and not even half way to a solo.
12 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2009: I mean all you have to do is count the number of armies that you have vs the amount of armies that Cuba and NY have to know what's going to happen here
12 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2009: You weren’t so concerned a turn ago before the game turned on you.
12 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2009: I mean... you read my messages after every builds phase. I was quite concerned.
12 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2009: Also (obviously) I have a lot of armies too so if I'm alive then you can't solo really. Not true if Cuba and new York agree to cut me
16 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2010: Hello all, shall a 4 way draw be good result? Any other ending may lead to one player solo win, be it NY or BC
16 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2010: That would be my preference
16 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 2011: With due respect, I dont really want to do a draw with almost half the teams that started the game.
17 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2011: So like when classic map diplomacy games end in 3 way draws? Ie the most common result? Hahaha
17 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2011: I see you working BC
18 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2011: Now that there ar eonly four of us, could we maybe try getting our orders in more quickly?
19 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2011: Could i know your plan? Cuba is stuck me. I really want to destroy him!
19 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2011: BCs plan is to accumulate centres while you get stuck new York. He wants a solo. We will only break the deadlock if you turn back against BC
19 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2011: Hi new york? We dont have anything to hate each other.
20 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 2012: Hi BC, would a draw be the quickest way to end this game and benefit everyone?
20 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 2012: Holy smokes. Texas and Cuba, you two make devilish bed fellows
20 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 2012: Classic strategy though, the two weaker parties try to turn the stronger against each other, even though neither are even close to a solo. But I don’t blame you, it’s the only play you’ve got if you want to survive.
20 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 2012: We are fine to a draw. We love peace
22 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2012: @NY - how is it not obvious to you that BC is a solo threat here. He will take at least 5 more centres of mine before you end up getting even one, and he's moved all his units to your border ready to stab. Seriously, wake up and smell the coffee!
25 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2013: Yet another year in which British Columbia gains a centre and New York gains nothing. Are you going to let this game meander to the inevitable BC solo New York? Or will you act before it is too late
29 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 2015: Good game everyone. Honestly not sure if this will end in BC solo or 3 way draw (guess it's probably a toss up) but I can see there is no hope for me. I shall stubbornly submit orders to the end, but thought I would make a concession speech while my voice carries some weight.
29 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 2015: Thats cool of you to keep doing strategic orders dude. Really well played, you really put me through my paces with your defence.
31 Jan 19 UTC I ended up voting for a draw. I thought it woudl be nice if Texas stayed in. And also, I should start focusing more on work. Good game everyone.
31 Jan 19 UTC Nice to work with you in the whole time BC, Cuba and Texas, You drawn this map.
31 Jan 19 UTC Good game. Oh new york, it is you nguyenmt again : )
31 Jan 19 UTC You played really well this game, Eric
31 Jan 19 UTC Not as good as you. We both joined this game midway.
31 Jan 19 UTC Yeaaahhhhhhhh
31 Jan 19 UTC Wow I didn't deserve that draw. Thanks BC!
