22 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: As we approach the close of the calendar year, I would like to take this opportunity to extend my warmest wishes for a healthy, happy, safe, and prosperous holiday season and new year to one and all, and to all of your loved ones too. Win, lose or draw, I would like to thank each and every one of you for the hours of pleasure you provide by playing Diplomacy with/against me. G-d bless us all.
22 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: I solidly echo that! Dip is a lot of fun and it takes cool people to make it a cool game. Sometimes we get betrayed or plans fail or whatever. But this is a great chance to remind ourselves that it IS just a game and there are bigger and more important things in our lives :)
22 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: Yah, like fruitcake.
22 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: Certainly fruitcake is one of life's greatest joys. As for the rest of you guys. Merry Christmas! Best of Luck in all of our Diplomacy games! And may the next year be filled with great tiding and good cheer.
22 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: Yeah, thanks for being a part of one of my first games everyone.
22 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: Well, for a first game, you have done excellently, conor!
22 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: I’m sure the next ones won’t be as lucky. There’s still a lot that can happen though I’d guess
23 Dec 19 UTC Spring, 1904: Why such a pessimist? You'd think that I already stabbed you? That's only scheduled for five turns from now. DUCK DUCK DUCK - did I say that out loud in global chat?
23 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1904: Yeah Russia you have to stab Germany or Austria first. Threeways are a boring way to end a first game. My first ended that way.
23 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1904: 3 ways are by FAR the most common ending in classic Dip. Followed by solos and then 2/4 way draws being even further down.

3 ways are safe and stable for all 3 parties.
23 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1904: Only boring people call boring people boring. And we Germans considering ourselves more 'boaring' people. We adore pig, roasted on a spit, sizzling and crackling in the midwinter moonlight, with apples shoved up both ends.

And say nothing to the English Admiralty, they would split their britches in anger and rage, but we are especially fond of a certain Midland barmaid who has made the googly eyes at one of our junior officers, nephew to the vice-Chancellor himself.
24 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1904: Guru, was that nice?
25 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1905: Guru, was that nice. I now have to repaint.
25 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1905: I'd do anything to irritate
25 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1905: I've decided that I like you.
25 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1905: Not enough to keep you around mind. Just to keep things clear.
25 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1905: Just thankful of not being around this game any longer!
26 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: The colours of this map are so restful. ;-)
28 Dec 19 UTC Spring, 1907: 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.
28 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: Something tells me they are about to change
28 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: Bane, old fellow, maybe pop Tuscany into Piedmont.
And Venice into Apulia.
And the Adriatic Sea into Albania.
And Bulgaria into Greece.

We can't have the chromatics diddled with.

It's too bad we can't repaint Crete. Life is soooo unfair.


We can't have the chromatics messed with.
28 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: It is finished. Good game everyone!
28 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: Yes everyone hit draw right now
28 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: If we hit draw now, Italy and France will be included in the draw, which, by the way, is something I am more than prepared to do if the others agree. Conor; Bane; I leave the decision to you two.
28 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: haha, lets get france and italy outta here. Though, Im speaking as a country that can't easily get to either of them
28 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: True, but you have more than earned the right to be listened to. I've entered one move; and that is MAO to the Western Mediterranean. Otherwise, everything else is simply on hold.
28 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: Oh obviously I'm not hitting draw until they are out lol.

I was just saying gg because it's over.
28 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: Silverblaze (that moniker is a wee bit over the top, don't you think?), Eric, Guru, Galahad - good game. And Happy 28th of December.
28 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: What's your name mean Yaniv?
28 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: Yaniv is Hebrew. It is the future tense of the verb 'to flower'.
28 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: You can call me 'sprout'.
28 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: It loses a wee bit in the translation.
28 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: Good Game!
28 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: Perfect map! I don't think I've ever seen a game end with all the map only having the colors of the winners. Neat!
28 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: Well, I take responsibility for the colours. I had to nudge Russia to repaint Asia Minor. The dude is lazzzyyyy.
29 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: How did you do it? This game. The German-Russian-Austrian alliance? How long has the alliance been going on between the three of you?
29 Dec 19 UTC Bane, old bean. I promise promise promise that I will do nothing about it but you do realise that its killing me that not all of the Maghreb is German brown. Life is so unfair. May I ask both you kind gentlemen to press DRAW?

And to all the newly and not so newly vanquished, I say: It was an honour and a privilege to battle against you all. You fought with valour, tenacity, skill and heart. It was a privilege to be your enemy. Your deeds will long be remembered in the songs, annals and beer-halls of history. I salute you!
29 Dec 19 UTC Good game everyone! Glad we managed to come together germany and turkey. I voted for a draw.
29 Dec 19 UTC Yes, good game everyone. A bit tense there at times, but we managed to pull through.

It was a fun game. Thanks for waiting around for a year or two, Russia! You could have backstabbed Germany and I both to attempt a solo. Glad you opted not to.
