27 Oct 19 UTC Autumn, 2007: GameMaster: Game was extended due to at least 1 member failing to enter orders and having an excused missed turn available. This has un-readied all orders.
23 Nov 19 UTC Good job everyone. I wasn't meet. To give England a bigger advantage as he encroached. I think I did have Spain and Poland both beat, tactically, but it would've taken a long time and England would've won in the end.

23 Nov 19 UTC Wow good crowd this game.

0k0k0 - why didn't you help me take on Poland?
23 Nov 19 UTC Good game. Thanks to all for playing.
23 Nov 19 UTC well played guys!
Since early on, in 96/97, when a West block formed, I felt I would not reach the Draw, even if I was still leading in the count of sc. The 4 corners finishing the middle states happened ineluctably.
@Goldfinger, what do you mean: helping you against Poland? I never did. In 2007 Polish Kiev support hold SEV (useless) instead of Italian Odessa. I lose it. I disband MUN. AUS and HUN were left empty to resist your pressure and I don't attack Poland. I could have a better chance of resisting if Spain had given me some slack, but he does not, so next year I disbanded ROM and RUM because RUM was not holdable and Poland jumps into AUS. Spain gives me some margin but the logical East blocked is already formed.
(Or am I missing something?)

2003 - you support held Kiev instead of supporting me in.
2004 - you again support hold Kiev instead of supporting me in.
2005 - I start supporting you to Kiev, but you ignore it
2006 - I stab you.

If you were concerned about the corner powers, why did you deliberately make me fight you?
24 Nov 19 UTC Wow, some high rollers here. Good game all. And, yeah--I knew I couldn't indefinitely defend myself against Egypt, my only hope was to fight in such a way that killing me off would redound way more to England's benefit than Egypt's.
24 Nov 19 UTC @Egy, in my POV taking out POL would serve you and ENG. I would have been the next eliminating, getting you closer to solo. I tried to keep Poland's alliance to get into a 5 way.
24 Nov 19 UTC Very nice and fun game!
