25 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: You live for apple-sauce? Kinky!!!
25 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: Sauce?
25 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: 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.
25 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: Oh God. I just noticed we each have 4 excused delays! Hope we all live long enough to finish this thing!
25 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: Kiddo - first thing after I crawl out of bed and dash off to empty my bladder is to fish my teeth out of a glass of seltzer water and shove 'em back into my head. I'm gonna live forever.
25 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: I think that may have been my fault guys. I’m sorry. Holiday distracted me.
25 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: We is kool bro. We let Byron gones be Byron gones.
25 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: That was actually pretty clever. +1
25 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: Why isn’t there +1 in global chat in games?
25 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: Well, they only let me out of my cage because its Christmas.
25 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: ‘‘Twas the day of Christmas and all through the game. Not a nation was stirring not even Germaine. While we sat and we waited for adjudication to come, Turkey had already declared that he’d won. While Austria and France slowly gave in to their defeat, England and Italy snacked happily on cured meats.

‘‘Twas the day of Christmas and the game was going strong. Up until the moment when Italy did something wrong. He forgot to govern his nation and caused the game to delay, hopefully everyone will forgive him today.
25 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: Bravisimo! Bravisimo! Encore! Encore! We have a genius in our midst. Now, where did I put my hearing aid?
31 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1905: I won’t be around much this phase and so I want to apologize in advance if my responses are few and far between.

Happy new year to all of you! This game has been greats

01 Jan 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Please be aware that I am in Toronto with family for the day, after which I will be driving from Toronto back to Montreal. The likelihood of me receiving your messages/pleas for succour/requests for sage advice and insightful 2021 stock market picks risk not be read any time soon. We regret any inconvenience this might cause but the real world trumps all.
01 Jan 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: We can just pause for a couple days if that is better for you?
01 Jan 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Yeah let’s pause
08 Jan 20 UTC Spring, 1908: Nice job guys. My draw vote is in.
08 Jan 20 UTC Spring, 1908: In my opinion there is no reason to wait for Turkey and England to be eliminated before the draw. They both played well, and it's sum of squares scoring so it doesn't really impact the point allocation.
08 Jan 20 UTC Spring, 1908: I am not waiting for England to be eliminated. Turkey I am, because while it is sum of squares to insist his 3 centers don’t make a difference is rich considering your 3-4 center difference between me and you is worth double the point allocation.

Me and Russia has already discussed that Turkey will be eliminated I will support him in taking some of your centers and we will end this draw near to even among all 3 of us. With England alive with 1-2 centers. (Should be end of next year.)

Your begging for a draw and trying to make me or Russia look like solo threats NOW because your solo failed. You weren’t pointing out any of this a year ago when you thought you could solo.

The reality is. Not every players motivation is a solo. I’m in it for the points. I’m not content to draw with only 20ish points while you walk away with 50ish points when we could distribute those better.

Don’t even bother trying to turn me and Russia against each other. We’ve worked so close for the last few years that unless Russia gets Handys and tries a solo this game is ending next year.

Unfortunately for Germany, that means you’re losing some centers.
08 Jan 20 UTC Spring, 1908: I guess we'll have to see what happens. I always knew a solo was not possible, you and I discussed that at length in our private chats which I can cut and paste if you'd like. You on the other hand are the only one on both sides of the primary stalemate line and therefore the only one who really has a shot at a solo.
08 Jan 20 UTC Spring, 1908: Italy summed up my thoughts quite nicely. I dont see myself getting a solo. I prefer a 3 way draw but I cannot eliminate England. Pragmatically I need another center or two to protect my southern holdings. Sorry germany.
08 Jan 20 UTC Spring, 1908: There's nothing to apologize for, this is a game.
08 Jan 20 UTC This is SOS russia!
08 Jan 20 UTC Yeah I know. Whats your point?
08 Jan 20 UTC Offering to screenshot means nothing.

You can alter screenshots pretty easy with basic keyboard commands and snipping tools.

Even if you take the screenshots as fact. The idea that any of us don’t change our plans or lie is a sham.

Because you stated you’re going for a draw we’re to take that as a fact? When you simultaneously attacked Russia at Sweden and moved your forces to take his northern centers?

Actions speak louder than words.

Yea I can say I’m going for a draw.

But unlike your attack on Russia I have not taken a single center from either of the people I’ve claimed to be pursuing a draw with. And I’ve had ample opportunity at multiple points in this game including my and Russia’s very integrated border.

Stop trying to drag out the game by sowing distrust. When Turkey is eliminated likely end of this next year we will draw.
08 Jan 20 UTC I'm not sure how you can accuse me of trying to drag out the game when my draw vote is in..
08 Jan 20 UTC That’s cute.Because that means nothing, knowing both me and Russia are committed to eliminating turkey and evening the score between us 3.

Your draw vote wasn’t in until after my fleets in the Atlantic ended your solo opportunity and the reality that you’d lose centers became apparent.

I’m not putting in my draw vote as stated because I want to see turkey eliminated and help Russia take some of your centers.

Want to show your commitment to a draw? Don’t attack Russia and rip away Sweden just to be the “top of the board” you would’ve been top had you just let me and Russia finish turkey as planned. It would’ve happened this year since Russia could’ve moved his forces south rather than west.

You forced Russia north to defend himself. Then through press spooked me into moving into Piedmont.

How about we go radio silent through to next year. I commit to drawing with a 1 center Turkey if we can’t eliminate him.
09 Jan 20 UTC Congrats. You've leveled off the supply center count. Draw now?
09 Jan 20 UTC Let Turkey have a piece of the draw. They are a fine fellow.
09 Jan 20 UTC Aw shucks!
09 Jan 20 UTC Well Ive voted already. While I dont mind if the game ends now I reserve the right to change my mind.
09 Jan 20 UTC England?
09 Jan 20 UTC England?
09 Jan 20 UTC What?
09 Jan 20 UTC I love how England is just like “What?” #FunnyDipMoments
10 Jan 20 UTC I just drew the game. #Sorry if that wasn’t wanted. Although I assume it was since everyone had votes in.

I want to apologize to Germany and Turkey. I purposely was being antagonistic to draw hear from Russia and for the most part that worked. My goal was an evenish draw. I got my goal. Thought I’d have to eliminate turkey for it because I didn’t think we’d make headway against Germany.
10 Jan 20 UTC Heat* not hear.
10 Jan 20 UTC Good game guys.
10 Jan 20 UTC Thank you all. And thank you England.
10 Jan 20 UTC Good game.
10 Jan 20 UTC GG all
