22 Nov 19 UTC Spring, 1904: paused
23 Nov 19 UTC Spring, 1904: Could we get a pause vote, Turkey?
23 Nov 19 UTC Spring, 1904: Done it
25 Nov 19 UTC Spring, 1904: I'm feeling better and back to work. If people want to start the unpause votes, we can. (unless everyone wants to leave it until after Thanskgiving)
26 Nov 19 UTC Spring, 1904: My unpause is up. If we need to wait, that's fine by me.
26 Nov 19 UTC Spring, 1904: unpause up.
26 Nov 19 UTC Spring, 1904: It's Tuesday currently. I don't know who's American here but Thanksgiving is basically a multi-day event for me, with limited internet access sometimes...
26 Nov 19 UTC Spring, 1904: All good with keeping it paused
26 Nov 19 UTC Spring, 1904: I don't mind keeping the pause.
26 Nov 19 UTC Spring, 1904: Pause it is :)
26 Nov 19 UTC Spring, 1904: I'll just keep my vote up. Everyone unpause when they feel ready to resume.
02 Dec 19 UTC Spring, 1904: Everyone ready?
02 Dec 19 UTC Spring, 1904: What was going on in this game again?
02 Dec 19 UTC Spring, 1904: You were about to let me win
02 Dec 19 UTC Spring, 1904: I believe everyone unpaused except Germany. Too much Turkey perhaps?
02 Dec 19 UTC Spring, 1904: I believe everyone unpaused except Germany. Too much Turkey perhaps?
02 Dec 19 UTC Spring, 1904: Yep unpaused
02 Dec 19 UTC Spring, 1904: Germany is nowhere near Turkey...
03 Dec 19 UTC Spring, 1904: It was a pun that fell flat on its face. Wasn't worth repeating twice....
03 Dec 19 UTC Spring, 1904: My mentee from the Netherlands has never had turkey. Poor fella.
03 Dec 19 UTC Spring, 1904: I wonder if we should have had the phase reset to 24 hours.
03 Dec 19 UTC Spring, 1904: Yeah... I didn't have time to really come up with a plan besides holding.
03 Dec 19 UTC Spring, 1904: I am worried about nmrs mostly.
03 Dec 19 UTC Spring, 1904: Ah. Well, that would be unfortunate, but it would also extend the phase for us :p
03 Dec 19 UTC Spring, 1904: 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.
03 Dec 19 UTC Spring, 1904: Still no sign of the Turk...
05 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1904: ... why did that move to finland
05 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1904: sigh
06 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1904: Sorry, struggling to make & respond to press as traveling.
18 Dec 19 UTC Spring, 1908: I guess no one wants to talk to Germany anymore...
19 Dec 19 UTC Spring, 1908: 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.
19 Dec 19 UTC Spring, 1908: Oof
23 Dec 19 UTC Spring, 1909: Goodbye England, we hardly knew ye.
23 Dec 19 UTC Spring, 1909: Given this game has basically reached gunboat status, I'm going to be readying up pretty quickly. Let's get this one ended.
23 Dec 19 UTC Spring, 1909: I am voting draw to save time.
25 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1909: Not much person, we can talk louder now. Germany! What are you waiting for?
26 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1909: @Italy: Stop! I told you stop!
27 Dec 19 UTC Spring, 1910: Oddly enough I don’t think Italy is the one who will cause me to win this...
29 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1910: I don't see why you won't just eliminate Austria so we can draw.
29 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1910: Also - ouch. I completely missed that I could lose MAO here... Christmastime has me forgetting all the basics.
29 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1910: LOL, Germany. Without MAO, we still can stop you. The plan is there for a long time!
29 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1910: Next move, We take Boh and you cannot take any more SCs from us.
29 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1910: Aus is contributing to the Game, He deserves for the win together.
29 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1910: Germany, I think it’s time to accept you can’t win this against the 3 of us. Austria does deserve to share. Better we draw now.
29 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1910: Losing MAO is messy but I believe there’s still a big vulnerability in your line you’re missing.
Regardless - there’s no such thing as “deserving” to be in the draw. The only reason there even is a modicum of resistance is old Russia disappearing - so talking about deserving is silly
30 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1910: *I'm in danger*
30 Dec 19 UTC Meh. I’m over it, I messed up the last few turns.

Should have requested a pause over the holidays to have the proper time to focus on this...
30 Dec 19 UTC Thanks for the game to all of you.

Was frankly enlightening having the privilege to play with such skilled and experienced players like Chaqa, Matticus13, and later with nguyenmt.

I know I have a great deal more to learn, but I particularly picked up a lot from the 3 of you, each having your own unique styles.

Hopefully we will meet again.
30 Dec 19 UTC Thanks, Chaqa for the game, I think that I (we) stole a win from you! So sorry for Ponder.
Thank Coaster, thank Genius for the alliance.
31 Dec 19 UTC I have no idea how, but I'm still alive. Thanks y'all.
