05 Dec 10 UTC Spring, 1908: I agree with England. To France: I build the Smyrna fleet out of fears of the Ionian Sea fleet moving into the Aegean and threaten 4 of my SCs and generally cause a headache. You have my word that I will not move it into the Ion or otherwise jeopardy French interests.
08 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 1908: OK, Turkey, may I ask why you're moving your recently-built fleet to Greece? And what your plans are for it and your fleet in Albania?
08 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 1908: Hi France. I had no plans with it. Depending on what armies/fleets Austria decides to disband (in particular the Adriatic fleet), they are at your disposal if you want them to block the Ionian. Though if needed blocking Apulia seems more difficult. Let me know your thoughts in Spring! We also need to coordinate our other Spring moves.
09 Dec 10 UTC Spring, 1909: Italy, I have ordered S A Tyr Vie. Best, Turkey.
09 Dec 10 UTC Spring, 1909: Are you talking to me, Turkey? I'm France. Thanks!
09 Dec 10 UTC Spring, 1909: England, what can I do for you? Taking Munich is not in the cards for the time being. Burgundy is at your disposal if you want it. Once I have taken Portugal, so too will my MAO fleet.
09 Dec 10 UTC Spring, 1909: France, Unfortunately not much this year, if you position yourself well in tyrolia. vie, boh then that would pressure germany from the south
Turkey, keep moving north :)
09 Dec 10 UTC Spring, 1909: france, support move pic to bel with bur just in case.
Its a long shot, but it may keep germany from repositioning his armies
10 Dec 10 UTC Spring, 1909: It seems my time has come at last. Well played France. Good game to all.
10 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: Hi france, please be sure to move to EC from MAO
10 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: Hi France, sorry for the misunderstanding. I was on a conference and had to submit orders quickly and had limited time to check. Maybe I already assumed you had taken the identity of your former foe :-) But I am happy that it al went well.
11 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: Way to hang in there, Italy. Better luck next time!

Turkey, thanks for the support.

England, will do.
12 Dec 10 UTC Spring, 1910: Turkey, Mediterranean DMZ? I built F(Mar) because your F(Gre) and (Alb) are still making me nervous, but I'm still interested in coming to an arrangement so we don't waste energy worrying about each other.
12 Dec 10 UTC Spring, 1910: france, you can now take munich or Bel (with Turkey galicia attacking Silesia)
I'm moving Lon to North Sea to block off potential NorthSea support
12 Dec 10 UTC Spring, 1910: France and England; I am happy to end this campaign in a shared 1/3 1/3 1/3 win. Do you both agree? France, a DMZed Mediterranean is ok. Lets keep our fleets in their harbors.
12 Dec 10 UTC Spring, 1910: Turkey, of course I agree.
12 Dec 10 UTC Spring, 1910: France, Turkey, how about we eliminate England and end this with a three way draw?
12 Dec 10 UTC Spring, 1910: I'm in favor of an England-Turkey-France three way draw. Sorry Germany, I don't switch sides if I can help it.
13 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 1910: France; I thought we would DMZ the Mediterranean? You specifically asked for this?! Please explain?
13 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 1910: Yeah, my bad! I forgot to change the order. I hope you agree that a lone fleet in the Gulf of Lyon poses no threat to you. I'll move back this turn. MAO fleet is intended for action to the north.
Remember, your Mediterranean navy is much bigger than mine, and much closer to vulnerable supply centers; I am much more vulnerable to your breaking our pact than you are to me breaking it.
13 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 1910: France, germany can take Edi by moving North Sea in with Cly and Nor support
Will you support move Lon to North Sea with EC please? That way if he does take edi, I can take Den next year (after disbanding a unit). Thanks.
13 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 1910: Hell what a bloody fight!
14 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 1910: Oh, Turkey...that's really rich. Really, really rich.
14 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 1910: France, I have learned that if people respond with "Yeah, my bad! I forgot to change orders" they usually are up to something. I felt compelled to act. If you want to renegotiate, I await your response. In the mean time, I congratulate Germany on its skillful defense.
14 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 1910: OK. Fair enough. I think it should be clear by now that I wasn't "up to" anything. Could you please return your fleets to port?
14 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 1910: What about Vienna?
14 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 1910: Keep it as a token of my goodwill.
14 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 1910: France, If we continue fighting, we risk allowing Turkey to solo win. All he needs to take is Tunis, Italy, Warsaw, and one of my home supply centers. Turkey can easily take Tunis, Naples and Warsaw next year. You should allow me to finish off England, and shore up your defenses in the south.
14 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 1910: Germany, I am interested in a 3-way win (as I wrote earlier). I do not care with who. If you finish off England, I am more than happy to accept a 3-way draw. I have no alliance with England--our interests merely overlap.
14 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 1910: Germany--it's not quite so dire as that (Turkey has to get to 18 centers; he's six short--that would probably be Italy's home centers, plus Tunis, Warsaw, and maybe Berlin or Marseilles). But your general point is well taken.
OK. I hate to do this to you England--don't like switching sides--but I'm no fool and I know what's in my best interests.
Germany, I will support you into Liverpool and London next turn. Then we'll have a three-way draw.
Again, I hate to do that, England, but it is what it is. That's the game.
14 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 1910: Oh, duh. My bad Germany...you said just what I said. I didn't read carefully enough. Damn, really wish I'd reread before rather than after posting.
14 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 1910: France, Germany, Turkey, :( I understand--it is the game. In fact I was a bit surprised that turkey and france wanted to three way draw with me...

Good game all,
Germany, I knew one of us eventually had to stab the other...
15 Dec 10 UTC Spring, 1911: France, Turkey, I'm glad to hear that you are willing to do a three way draw with me.
England, once we took Warsaw and Moscow, you had no realistic way to expand except through me or France.
15 Dec 10 UTC Spring, 1911: France and Germany, I am going to try a solo. Try and stop me! Yours truly, Turkey.
15 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 1911: Thanks for the heads up Turkey.
15 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 1911: France, I suggest that you have Venice move to Rome, since you can't save Venice.
I can move Holland to Kiel while you move Belgium to Holland. That way you will have two disbands while I have one. I'll disband Liverpool, while you disband Belgium(which will be in Holland) and Picardy. This should leave you with four fleets to use in the Med, and all of your armies at the Turkish front intact.
15 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 1911: woo, go turkey!...ps.. if germany and france want to leave me alone so I can get a survive if turkey wins-thatd be nice.. thanks
15 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 1911: Hmmm, okay, I see. Quite persuasive. This is not going to work. Okay I will agree to a draw after fall.
15 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 1911: (in reaction to Germany)
15 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 1911: turkey-I think that you can do it
I am moving Den to Sweeden-so that means that germany must move norway to sweeden or hold st pete.
either I eventually get to sweeden and then move to norway then you take st pete, or you take st pete right now
move Ionian to Tyrr and Apu to Nap-it will take a bit for france to get into MAO and Med

If you get control of Boh and Tyrolia you will win
15 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 1911: Well, if you can get me into StPete that would be great.
16 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 1911: yup, I'll try, Im moving to sweeden next turn
16 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 1911: Germany, I will do as you suggest.
17 Dec 10 UTC Spring, 1912: turkey! I just noticed, totally not aggressive enough with warsaw and galicia...
I can't help you with st pete now..
17 Dec 10 UTC Spring, 1912: France, I disbanded London instead of Liverpool because it would have been more useful if England had kept Wales rather than Sweden.
18 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 1912: GG all! :) thanks for playing with me
18 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 1912: GG England!
18 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 1912: Good game everyone, I'll vote draw during the spring phase.
18 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 1912: I'll also vote draw in spring. My campaign to get to 18 is not going to work. I am stuck at 17. So close, yet so far away...

But indeed: a very good game. I am happy to have made close friends out of two former enemies. I think I need to work a bit on my timing and learn to stab at the right time. Maybe if I would have started earlier, not have ceded Vienna to France. But I am happy to be among the winners, especially given my very slow start. In that light, I feel sad that England is not among the victors. England's attack on Russia allowed into Sevastopol and break the deadlock with Austria. The struggle between Germany and England/France and subsequent cooperation against me was great to watch. My hopes were to deliberately keep the bulk of the French army tied up in the Alps while I would sweep in the Mediterranean. But it all took a bit too much time.

Congratulations to France and Germany. Well-played!
20 Dec 10 UTC Good game all! That was my first public press game, and I really enjoyed it. Thanks!
