10 Oct 20 UTC Spring, 1901: The early start seems to have caught King Henry asleep at the wheel!

23 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1904: Hi, New England
26 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: How is it that both Germany and Italy have decided to just completely give up their own games in favor of letting England and Turkey just run roughshod over them? It's truly baffling.

I don't think I've ever seen two countries just... sit there like that before, and offer gentle assistance to their overlords when they could be gaining easy centers instead.
26 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: I understand your bitterness when facing tight and determined alliance. I just wonder, why should you claim having never seen this, after having played so many games..
26 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: ...and I thought I was doing quite well!
26 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: I've seen plenty of alliances, and I've seen plenty of vassal/overlord relationships where a strong power keeps a weak one alive in exchange for their help. What I haven't seen is a vassal/overlord relationship when the parties are so evenly matched.

Germany, as an example, took Sweden in 1902. They gained Warsaw, all on their own, in Spring 1903. And since then there's just been complete subservience. Hell, most of their units haven't even moved since 1903. It's just such a complete abdication of drive to actually participate in the game.
26 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Russia threw this game into disarray. Just giving up st Pete and Sevastopol for nothing seems fish. Their moves were 10x more baffling than anything else in this game. Although I've been screwed over by three supposed allies this game so I'm a little crusty...
29 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: 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.

30 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: That's a tad irritating...
02 Nov 20 UTC Perhaps a peaceful end to hostilities? I am voting draw.
02 Nov 20 UTC That was unanimous. Gg all
02 Nov 20 UTC Thanks for a good game. Felt I learnt a lot from you guys!
02 Nov 20 UTC Gg all,

thanks France for showing such a sportmanship until the end.


Thanks Germany and England for being excellent adversaries.

And obviously Thanks Italy for the loyalty and the exchange of ideas.
