1 excused missed turn
Game drawn
04 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 2011: :'(
05 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 2011: 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.
05 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 2011: New Florida
05 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 2011: Hi!
15 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 2012: 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.
22 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 2014: I propose a three-way tie. Let California liquidate what's left of Texas, Cuba liquidates what's left of Quebec and draw
22 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 2014: Would seem a shame considering how helpful Quebec has been to the Cubifornian coalition
22 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 2014: Offical name: RGB alliance :D
26 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 2015: Only Cuba needs to sign the draw ...
01 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 2016: 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.
02 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 2016: Uh oh. Who is the newby?
02 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 2016: i'm still here
02 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 2016: Nobody
02 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 2016: Everyone against me. There they stay with their little game ...
02 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 2016: When we allied up, you were overforced with Florida and Texas. Of course after you killed your allies, left alone.
02 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 2016: also, when i took over california, his position sucked. i spoke to both heartland and texas, and neither offered any concessions, but both told me to go to war with cuba because he was a bad man. then heartland and texas started encroaching on my borders and cuba was like "hey man, let's stop fighting and go to war with those guys." and i'm like "you know what, that's a great idea."

so i have 0 sympathy for you heartland.
03 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 2016: generally, when one player tries to go solo, the other players will try to stop that. not sure why you're surprised
06 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 2017: hey all, once the next phase hits and heartland is eliminated, is everyone cool with drawing?
06 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 2017: yes
06 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 2018: We have one more job to do, it takes 1.5 years from now, then we can draw. You can use this time to paint the rest of america. Since it is the RGB alliance, we we cant let yellow or deep purple colored places. :)
07 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 2018: lol i'll take care of northern and western ontario. cali can do Up and Yukon and you can take care of Ind, W Penn and WV?
07 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 2018: I take care of new fundland as well.
08 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 2018: Hmm... who did not enter orders yet?
08 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 2018: Me, sorry. I'll input them before the timer
08 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 2018: Ok :)
08 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 2018: Ok :)
08 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 2018: Ok :)
09 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 2018: so after this i assume arctic goes to bering and then we convoy cali to lima?
09 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 2019: aren't you missing one fleet in bearing sea?
09 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 2019: no. cuba will shift his fleets north, and cape may will fill the gap.
09 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 2019: No, filling bering sea is not important.
10 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 2019: I would have liked to have seen Cali to Lima via convoys right round the continent...
10 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 2019: We can do that while cali fill yukon ;)
10 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 2020: Noice
12 Mar 20 UTC Thanks for the game! :)
12 Mar 20 UTC gg everyone. really didn't think i would last till the end
12 Mar 20 UTC GG!
12 Mar 20 UTC Also, Cuba, great game! It's amazing playing with someone in the top 1% of diplomacy players!
12 Mar 20 UTC Any tips for us newbies?
12 Mar 20 UTC The points don't really matter I think. I just take over many countries in civil disorder. :) But what helped me a lot, the gunboat games. There you can focus on tactics.

and of course:

12 Mar 20 UTC Damn, that convoy though
12 Mar 20 UTC Rockin!
12 Mar 20 UTC You played against me as well! Peru here! GG
13 Mar 20 UTC I may have struck out early in this game, but I really enjoyed watching how the game unfolded. Cheers guys
13 Mar 20 UTC HL was so dominant at one point although I think his lack of fleets was key to his demise. I got my fleet from Nova Scotia all the way to anchorage and helped Cali beat back HL while Cuba helped keep me alive.
13 Mar 20 UTC Well. I took over a bad position as Peru. Didn't stand a chance for a comeback. Then CA got me.
13 Mar 20 UTC Sorry about that. I needed the SCs
13 Mar 20 UTC Fwiw I did the same thing to Mexico
13 Mar 20 UTC Peru, you should have moved back to defend your home centers.
13 Mar 20 UTC should had. :)
