18 Apr 19 UTC Autumn, 1905: We're still here? I thought we were drawing!

20 Apr 19 UTC Autumn, 1905: Moderator: (Durga): play on
25 Apr 19 UTC Spring, 1906: Did Turkey NMR?
25 Apr 19 UTC Spring, 1906: I didn’t think you could nmr. You possibly inputted hold orders?
25 Apr 19 UTC Spring, 1906: He* not you
28 Apr 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: RIP Tunis
05 May 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: Who we waiting for?
05 May 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: I’d speculate Turkey
05 May 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: This is a really fascinating game. The green line cutting a peaceful path between Germany and Austria to coil around Russia is so unlike anything I recall seeing before.
06 May 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: Italians are just building a gas pipeline from St P. to Venice. It should be ready by the end of 1908. ;)
06 May 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: Did my contract with Gazprom get leaked? Man we all signed non-disclosure-agreements...
08 May 19 UTC Spring, 1908: Going to be pretty busy between now and Friday at noon US Eastern Time. Apologies in advance to all if I take a while to get back to you during this period.
09 May 19 UTC Spring, 1908: It seems Austria is unconcerned with letting himself get surrounded by his supposed 'ally', to the point of surrendering gains in Turkey and Greece. Once I'm down to 2 centres or less let's watch Italy immediately swallow up Austria for the solo
09 May 19 UTC Spring, 1908: I suppose since everyone else in this game apart from England was willing to let Italy do whatever, I might as well follow suit and throw my centres to him. Message me if you think otherwise
09 May 19 UTC Spring, 1908: Dude, the negativity is strong with you. This is supposed to be a tournament, don’t go throwing centers and such.
09 May 19 UTC Spring, 1908: Eh, I actually think the tournament setting makes throwing centers a particularly valid strategy. Due to the scoring of the tournament, my sense is that it's probably better for one person to win than to be eliminated and for multiple people to draw. That being said, I don't negotiate with terrorists.
11 May 19 UTC Autumn, 1908: It seems Austria fails to see reason, so for the rest of you the best of luck contending with the pope
11 May 19 UTC Autumn, 1908: Omg lol I didn’t realize Edinburgh could move to Liverpool
11 May 19 UTC Autumn, 1908: I am a master tactician!
11 May 19 UTC Autumn, 1908: My sincere apologies to England and to the entire board for such an amateur mistake. You deserve stronger play than that in a tournament game.
11 May 19 UTC Autumn, 1908: Ireland back in English hands! Hoorray!
11 May 19 UTC Autumn, 1908: I'd be ok if you forgot that again :p
22 May 19 UTC Autumn, 1910: How is everyone’s week going? Ready for the Memorial Day holiday?
22 May 19 UTC Autumn, 1910: Not from the States, so sadly I'm not ready, but I sure could use a holiday...
23 May 19 UTC Autumn, 1910: Pretty good! Looking forward to seeing some friends and family I haven't seen for a while. How are you?
23 May 19 UTC Autumn, 1910: Doing well, thanks for asking. Just looking forward to the 2 days off from work.
23 May 19 UTC Autumn, 1910: Good game, Russia. Sorry we couldn’t keep you alive.
23 May 19 UTC Autumn, 1910: Good game
24 May 19 UTC Autumn, 1910: GG, all!
24 May 19 UTC Autumn, 1910: GG Sir!
31 May 19 UTC Autumn, 1911: GG England. I hope you can forgive the French soon enough to come to their rescue from Germany in 30 years' time.
31 May 19 UTC Autumn, 1911: Also in 4 years time as well, ha!
05 Jun 19 UTC Spring, 1913: Alright I’m ready to draw this up, anyone holding out?
06 Jun 19 UTC Spring, 1913: St. Petersburg goes first
08 Jun 19 UTC Autumn, 1913: Set to draw
09 Jun 19 UTC Autumn, 1913: Hey all, we drawing now, or are we waiting for my destruction?
12 Jun 19 UTC Spring, 1914: Why do I get the feeling that we’re just going to play musical chairs for a while and end up having to draw 4 ways anyway?
17 Jun 19 UTC Autumn, 1915: It’s very possible that that ends up happening in the end. Also you and Italy have grabbed some centers this spring there are a lot of center trades going on all the time.
26 Jun 19 UTC Autumn, 1917: I’m hoping we can wrap this game up before an upcoming vacation of mine that will require a pause—to that end, I’d be grateful if you folks could Ready up as soon as you are able. I understand, of course, if you want to make full use of the time allocated to you. Just thought I’d ask. Thank you.
26 Jun 19 UTC Autumn, 1917: Readied, hope you have a great vacation!
26 Jun 19 UTC Autumn, 1917: Thanks!
28 Jun 19 UTC Autumn, 1917: Good game, Austria.
28 Jun 19 UTC Autumn, 1917: GG man
28 Jun 19 UTC Spring, 1918: Good game guys! It was intense
04 Jul 19 UTC A happy Independence Day to all mankind

04 Jul 19 UTC Happy Independence Day! And congratulation one turn early on your solo France!
04 Jul 19 UTC Thank you very much, though I can hardly think my win is attributable to superior tactics or negotiation. I got very lucky a number of times. Most notably, when I happened to hold onto Tunis by guessing correctly two turns in a row whether to have Western Mediterranean support-hold Gulf of Lyons or Tunis—this game, by pure luck, happened to be the 1 in 4 in which I would guess those two coin flips correctly in succession. It was a pleasure playing with all of you.
04 Jul 19 UTC GG - Congrats to France
