08 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 1901: Great : this started! It is rather late here, but I will check my messages and reply to you asap. In the meantime already : good luck to all!
26 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: Good game, all!
26 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 1907: Well played!
01 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1909: This is by far the most chaotic game I have ever played! :-)
04 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1910: Whoever it is, don't forget to enter your orders by the deadline.
05 Feb 19 UTC One or both of you are lying, so we are going to play a little game.
Here are the rules:
1. If one of you attacks and the other draws I will do my best to ensure that the player who did not attack me when's the game at my own expense
2. If both of you attack me, I will give the game to whoever I choose
3. If both of you decide to draw, we all draw.
4. Willingness to draw should be indicated by a moveset of only holds with no unit movement.
My mental math indicates that a decision to attack me would gain you on average 175 points, as you would either win or lose. A decision to draw would gain you on average 255 points, as you would either win or Draw. In this incidence of a modified prisoner's dilemma, with betrayal replaced with choosing to draw, Game Theory clearly shows that drawing is the better option for both of you. What do you choose?
05 Feb 19 UTC Well, since we are all blogging out in the open, like I told you : I have drawn already and I am not aiming for a solo. However, I am also not standing on the side while this game is going on... You should be good to survive Austria, but you might lose Rom, Mar and Spa if we continue playing. In terms of points, it does not matter much though.
06 Feb 19 UTC Well said. England, what say you?
06 Feb 19 UTC Same as Turkey, I can’t solo from here, as you have pointed out you are able to stop that happening, my draw remains in, but like Turkey I wont stop until you have both entered your draws.
06 Feb 19 UTC Good game all!
06 Feb 19 UTC Yep good game thanks everyone
