28 Sep 08 UTC Autumn, 1901: Folks, it looks like my dog's random paw jab put me into this game.
Oh well, it does look rather interesting, though I do not know how the 12 hour
deadline will affect things.
Please everyone write and continue to fight everyone but Austria. Thank you.
Oh by the way, I am Edi Birsan and I can be reached directly at
EdiBirsan at astound dot net.
I live in the San Francisco area and I like to play mostly in Face to Face (FtF) tournament games as well as social games in the area. Anyone interested let me know.
28 Sep 08 UTC Autumn, 1902: someone have a coin? Better yet since this is an election season, let us all take a vote on whether Fleet Ionian should go to Tunis or Naples.
What say you one and all? Tunis or Naples?
29 Sep 08 UTC Autumn, 1902: vote mccain in november
29 Sep 08 UTC Autumn, 1902: Well I want to thank you all for your private votes and as we can see trusting in the masses has provided the correct answer.
29 Sep 08 UTC Autumn, 1902: A fraud election from the fraud government of Austria! I come to liberate its people soon!
30 Sep 08 UTC Spring, 1903: How long does it take the machine to realize that a retreat has no place to go?
Well I guess we will find out.
30 Sep 08 UTC Autumn, 1903: the italian soldiers will retreat to the rural farm houses around Vienna, there they will pillage the farmer's harvest and take his daughters for their own use!
30 Sep 08 UTC Autumn, 1903: Vienna: (General Government News Release) The Austrian government has issued a warning to the countryside when it was discovered that the former soldiers of the Italian Army were found loitering around the barn animals on the outskirts of the city. It appears that after numerous interviews the following pattern of behavior has been determined. upon arrival at the farm where the harvest had already been long gathered the soldiers would weep because it had already been placed in a pile and they said their orders were to "pile-aged" it first. Then when the farmer's daughter(s) would usually come with cookies and sweet tea to cheer them up the soldiers would repeatedly ask them 'what use am I" to which the girls would often say "I can put you to use". There upon the soldiers cheered up since their last orders were to go to the "daughters for their own use." So they awaited instructions from the daughters on what use they could be. It was then that things began to spiral into unhealthy areas. AS the dirtiest job on the farm was the cleaning of the pig pens it was the most common request. The soldiers would then ask where "Pig pen is? The girls would be dismayed at the question because of the Italian's accent and tendency to put words together. Refusing in lady like fashion to discuss Pig Penis they invariably blushed and pointed to the pig. What followed in the barnyard was not for polite company, but certainly it can be said that in the excitement of the cleaning action the Italians lost control of their own manly envy and a series of comparisons and mutual investigations took place leading to a total loss of self control by the Italians. Though the pigs did seem satisfied, as pigs often do with fellow swine.
Citizens are advised to tell the Italians soldiers that there is a large collection of piles at Venice that are aging and they can Pillage there. When told they could be useful there by daughters, it should solve the problem of protecting the pork and getting the other swine out of the country.
30 Sep 08 UTC Autumn, 1903: The Independent Chronicle: Corrupt Austrian Government steps up propaganda following Italian invasion of suburban Austria.
30 Sep 08 UTC Autumn, 1903: ***Breaking News***: Italian soldier impregnates Austrian leader's daughter. More to follow.
30 Sep 08 UTC Autumn, 1903: In a strange coincidence of reporting it was noted that the Austrian leader does not have a daughter but the family pet pig is missing.
30 Sep 08 UTC Autumn, 1903: ***Breaking News***: Austrian Leader disowns daughter, calls her pig
30 Sep 08 UTC Autumn, 1903: W-03 Vienna, The Austrian populace has taken up the cry of 'No schnitzel for Italians' as it was discovered that there were numerous farm animals missing along the Croatian coast after the destruction of the second Italian army in two season.
30 Sep 08 UTC Autumn, 1903: How does the who sequence of adjudication work: will the game always be processed as soon as everyone is finalized regardless of deadline?
How much time is used when there are either no adjustments or if there is only a retreat and the only option is off the board?
01 Oct 08 UTC Autumn, 1903: Yes. No time. The game doesn't do any moves for you, so the full phase time.
04 Oct 08 UTC Autumn, 1905: Thank you Turkey for playing and issuing orders to the end. I hope to be able to see you sometime in a face to face game at convention somewhere.
04 Oct 08 UTC Autumn, 1905: don't laugh about bad decisions of a newbie -.-
04 Oct 08 UTC Autumn, 1905: Nobody is laughing.
04 Oct 08 UTC Autumn, 1905: On the contrary, to actually fight to the last and not just leave the nation in civil disorder is the proper way to play. Respect.
04 Oct 08 UTC Spring, 1906: ok then sorry I interpretet the words of austria as ironie...

05 Oct 08 UTC Spring, 1906: No irony no sarcasim at all. I was being very serious to thank you for your participation and determination and look forward to seeing you in the hobby.

08 Oct 08 UTC Spring, 1910: /draw

08 Oct 08 UTC Spring, 1910: Sometimes you get a position where the most social thing to do is to simply end the game rather than fight it out. Other times there evolves a strategic stalemate.

09 Oct 08 UTC Spring, 1910: I have posted a message on the Forum, please sign in there also and call for a draw...
09 Oct 08 UTC Spring, 1910: Why a draw? I don't get it... All this play for nothing?
09 Oct 08 UTC Spring, 1910: Not nothing... a three way draw is a three way draw.
09 Oct 08 UTC Spring, 1910: so nobody wins
09 Oct 08 UTC Spring, 1910: A draw means either that no ONE wins, or that all three share in the win, depending on your viewpoint.
