23 Oct 14 UTC Spring, 1901: Good luck, have fun everyone! :)
24 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1901: Well, blast. Thoughts on how to deal with an absent France ladies and gents?
24 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1901: Germany and Italy seem to have that figured out...
24 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1901: In the interest of fairness, perhaps we should cancel and restart..?
24 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1901: Not that we ever figured out who KillPremus is...

24 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1901: Probably for the best if we restart. Maybe KillPremus is Bruce Willis -- he was dead the whole time!
24 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1901: Alternatively, we could see where this goes. It'd be a weird game, but it could be interesting. I will follow whatever Germany and England want, since it's their theater. If we continue, it might just make for interesting reevaluations of alliances. Equivalent of the Spanish Civil War, perhaps?
24 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1901: "Interesting" is definitely the word. I'm willing to play it out if everyone else is!
24 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1901: Ivanna no can go back now. Will bring shame to country if return without victory.
24 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1901: Scary.
25 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1901: I'm willing to play it out, I guess, but I can go either way.
25 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1901: I'd rather play.
25 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1901: Though I will note the irony that Premus gets to kill KillPremus
26 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1901: I think this is my first time ever seeing an uncontrolled Bulgaria in 1901.
26 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1901: Ivanna and Vladimir are want know if board gaming is November 1?
26 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1901: It is! Port Chester Hall - 4pm start
30 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1902: France is awake! Viva Le France!
30 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1902: Ooooooooo
31 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1902: I'm hungry
05 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1903: Crap I'm very sorry everyone I was lazy about this game this season

09 Nov 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: Is there any way to speed up the Retreats/Builds phases?
09 Nov 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: Only with the ready button...
10 Nov 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: Yeah, the round processes either when the time ticks over or when everyone who's eligible to submit an order hits Ready.
18 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1905: Now that Russia is almost out of the way I propose a six-way draw...any takers ?
Italy and Austria...it's probably your best option at this point. ;)
18 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1905: Lol
20 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1905: rest in potatoes, poor mother russia.
20 Nov 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: At least you got Tyrolia!
27 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1906: I'm going to be "that guy" and not finalize through Thanksgiving just so the next season is easier for all of us re: communication. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
03 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: It would appear to me, gentlemen, that we have a stalemate line.
03 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: I concur. A fine-fought battle.
03 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: Very well-played all around.
03 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: OMG SO BORING WHY COULDNT WE ALL STAB EACH OTHER D:

Just kidding... I'm glad I survived. And I'm glad I killed KillPremus. Good game everybody.
03 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: Gentlemen, I appeal to you for more of a game. Far too often I find myself stuck with annoying or erratic players on this website, making the games unenjoyable. On the flip side, on those rare occasions when we can meet in person, time constraints force our hands, and exhaustion ends our campaigns too soon.

We have here an opportunity to continue playing what has thus far been a solid game. Perhaps we are indeed locked in the stalemate lines, and if those continue to hold, I will have to eventually concede a draw. For the moment, however, before we go quietly into that night, will you consider attempting to play on? Even if that means the three of you unite against me, I would consider that a more worthy conclusion.
05 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: As someone who has seen plenty of these games come to an actual close, in real life and online, I prefer to end the game. I don't think that this was a "solid" game, if only for the fact that France missed the early couple of seasons of the game. From that point on the game was irrevocably skewed, and the board was set into motion in one, boring direction. I was alone, it is apparent, in trying to get this board away from the stalemate line that all seemed committed to.

It makes sense for you, as Turkey, to want to continue the game. You still have growth in this game. You cannot lose centers given your position, tactically -- and you have a reasonable chance of gaining more than one.

I cannot grow, but that isn't really the reason why I think a draw is in order here. It seems that most of the players on the board want a draw, for whatever reason. Two players who, together, dominated the board are requesting a draw, which I also respect. To me it's about the group enjoying the game so that future games are assured.

I'll play on if need be. Would prefer to get on to the next one. 2v2s are boring, and when they happen, it means that we collectively didn't play this game 'correctly' or, as you put it, "solid"ly.
05 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: Plus I'm the little guy on the board :)
09 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1908: Doh.
24 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1911: GG Ya'll :D

Merry Christmas!
24 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1911: Merry Christmas!
24 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1911: Merry Christmas all.
24 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1911: Merry Christmas
24 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1911: And to all a good night!
26 Dec 14 UTC Good game, gents!
