26 Jul 08 UTC Spring, 1902: I don't think you meant to put that in global...
27 Jul 08 UTC Spring, 1903: GameMaster: keeper0018 has taken over Turkey.
27 Jul 08 UTC Spring, 1903: hey all im the new sultan, please feel free to contact me with any offers that you might have.
28 Jul 08 UTC Autumn, 1903: GameMaster: pavman has taken over Russia.
28 Jul 08 UTC Autumn, 1903: Likewise, I'm the new Czar. Looking to make friends and form alliances. Now offer too outrageous! :o)
28 Jul 08 UTC Autumn, 1903: No offer, rather. I see the game looks fairly exciting :o) Can't wait to see it play out.
28 Jul 08 UTC Spring, 1904: GameMaster: Zuma has taken over Turkey.
29 Jul 08 UTC Autumn, 1904: A bit disappointed in the lack of play from all people involved. Kind of pointless it seems esp. w/ all this changing of hands. Almost not worth playing. But I'm still optimistic I can learn something from this site.
29 Jul 08 UTC Spring, 1905: Good game all!
30 Jul 08 UTC Autumn, 1907: Good game. I have conceeded to France.
30 Jul 08 UTC Spring, 1908: Good game! let's get this game wrapped up then.
30 Jul 08 UTC Spring, 1908: dam, think I missed a retreat
30 Jul 08 UTC Spring, 1908: so much for the Russian comeback. :o(
30 Jul 08 UTC you have to love a game where people don't even trust you when you try to end the game. All I see is people amneuvering to get more SCs by the end of the game.
30 Jul 08 UTC I'm annoyed by the fact that I missed a retreat. That totally screwed up my long-term strategy. Not sure where you are coming from. I'm not conceding as 1908 is far too early. And he's got less than 18 centers.

Although, what annoys me the most is that people don't stay in the games. Might as well just play against yourself, it would be more fun.
30 Jul 08 UTC He has 17 right now and I am giving him Kiel...that's 18. The game is over.
30 Jul 08 UTC Hmm, good point... you gave up eh? Well, that's a shame. Don't give up until you're wiped out. Guess its too late though.

Personally, I think there shouldn't be a winner-take-all attitude w/ phpDip. Ideally, there'd be a way to call a draw without having to get the sysop involved, and there'd be a way for those who are considered part of the draw to win some of the pot. As pot is basically a cheap way to do rankings, with one major drawback... if you run out of chips, you have to create a new user name.

Good game guys. I'll concede to France too... now do you have to actually take all the centers to win, or is there a way to speed it up?
30 Jul 08 UTC Actually I mis-counted...he has 19 right now so doesn't need Kiel. It should end after this move or the build phase
30 Jul 08 UTC looks like 18 to me. So it ends after 18 centers? That's convenient.
31 Jul 08 UTC good game all everyone, hope no hard feeling england. I would definitely
really with you in other games.
