29 Jan 09 UTC Spring, 1904: Visiting the liquor store in Lake Dallas and KT video in Sanger IS NOT really a business trip! :)
29 Jan 09 UTC Spring, 1904: wow, haven;t heard anyone talk about sanger in awhile.
30 Jan 09 UTC Spring, 1904: i would like to invoke my special papal powers for invoking a holy war. I apologize that all of your other offences will have to put on hold until this heathen invasion is squelched. However, for every turkish territory you conquer you get ten free sins. Yours truly, Rome.
30 Jan 09 UTC Spring, 1904: hahaha
30 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: this is the ugliest map I've ever seen.
31 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: Here is another 48 hours game (10 pts each) to start a game for Jordan. All are welcome:

31 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: is it possible to quit a game and get some points back?
31 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: nope. you can just quit submitting orders and they'll shut you down, but you can't quit
31 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: fyi seth, bad backslash (or is it forward slash?) in your address above. Thanks for getting that one started! Flynn is gonna play with us. Michael, can you get Jake or Matt or Elizabeth to play?
31 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: correct link

01 Feb 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: I can give it a shot
01 Feb 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: Kevin's right. This map looks like a bunch of amateurs spilled the pieces to their Diplomacy game and walked off. Yeah! :)
01 Feb 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: i prefer the term noob, thank you very much.
01 Feb 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: Ok, I signed up to Young Blood. Matt and Jake are in as the young players. :D
01 Feb 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: Elizabeth wants to play too, so Matt, Jake, and Elizabeth will be representing their country. :)
01 Feb 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: Right on, Storrie family! See you on the battlefield.
04 Feb 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: My last dieing breath.
04 Feb 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: Wrath of Kahn, Eric. Wrath of Kahn. See you in a future game.
04 Feb 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: The Phoenix will rise again! Thanks.
07 Feb 09 UTC Autumn, 1906: left overs anyone?
12 Feb 09 UTC Autumn, 1907: kev got shafted finally. good job hanging in there. you going to be playing again?
12 Feb 09 UTC Autumn, 1907: eh, maybe. I'm really busy lately.
12 Feb 09 UTC Autumn, 1907: hey, this is all about building family unity here.

25 Feb 09 UTC Autumn, 1910: Darnit! Sorry all, I missed my moves.
26 Feb 09 UTC Spring, 1911: sleepy head. :-P
26 Feb 09 UTC Spring, 1911: now i don't feel so bad
07 Mar 09 UTC Autumn, 1912: Not exactly how I wanted to break into Spain.
07 Mar 09 UTC Spring, 1913: oh, adam missed a turn did he? how sad ;)
10 Mar 09 UTC Autumn, 1913: looks like seth is out of the game. we can either play it out or we can all resign and the points get evenly dispersed. im fine either way. what do you guys think?
10 Mar 09 UTC Autumn, 1913: tactically, it's just a matter of time before you guys wear me down. it quit being diplomacy a long time ago, now we are playing risk.
10 Mar 09 UTC Autumn, 1913: I'll defend to the bitter end if you want a protracted war. Or we can call it a draw. Michael?
11 Mar 09 UTC Autumn, 1913: Wouldn't we have to eliminate Germany first?
11 Mar 09 UTC Autumn, 1913: this is true...
11 Mar 09 UTC Autumn, 1913: Please do not look behind the curtain. Just focus on the important countries and your ever so important issues. Germany is broke, has no money, and surely could not harm you big guys...
11 Mar 09 UTC Autumn, 1913: Those crazy Germans. They don't even know that broke and having no money is the same thing! :-)

ASSAULT ON FORTRESS GERMANY!!!
12 Mar 09 UTC Autumn, 1913: It is not the same thing - at least for Dave Ramsey... Broke is not knowing how or caring to earn money... (but yeah, I was tired)...
12 Mar 09 UTC Autumn, 1913: Yeah, I couldn't live with another tie. Probably a mistake, but had to try.
12 Mar 09 UTC Autumn, 1913: i seem to always be the overly trusting ally, which seems to be a fatal mistake in this game.
12 Mar 09 UTC Autumn, 1913: oh well, lets get this over with, atleast it wasn't england... shifty, pink, bastards ;-)
12 Mar 09 UTC Autumn, 1913: Josh, Seth... we can stage a mean resistance against the Yellow Menace! He can't get Sevastopol if Josh doubles up. He cannot get Kiel, Warsaw, Berlin, or Spain. We can hold him at 16 centers and then turn on him with our collective 17. What do you say?
13 Mar 09 UTC Autumn, 1913: Death to TURKS!
20 Mar 09 UTC man, this game is getting tense right about now. one false move and the turks dominate.
21 Mar 09 UTC The hammer will fall on Munich or Warsaw. Close games are fun!
21 Mar 09 UTC So England pretends to be sleeping and gives the victory to Turkey...I knew they were in this together... :-)
21 Mar 09 UTC I think I am done for a little bit, but let me know when someone wants to get started again...
22 Mar 09 UTC Good game all, I enjoyed it. :) This is my first ever solo victory.
22 Mar 09 UTC good game, i am done for a bit as well. but in time.... i shall strike back...
22 Mar 09 UTC way to game it guys... I just was having too much fun in the real world this week! :-)

Congratulations Michael!
23 Mar 09 UTC yes congratulations. i've never won a solo victory before... im jealous.
