21 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 1: Best game name ever!
21 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 1: Does everyone "get" the name of the game...?
21 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 1: I do! I do!
22 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 1: The name... it's delicious.
26 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 4: "Well, this blows." - Hannibal
26 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 4: Prep your "last lecture"
26 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 4: Don't make it a downer either, we want to keep the parade crowd happy.
27 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 5: Dang it, Persia, we spend all that time fencing in the Caucasus and this is what happens?
28 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 6: This iteration of Diplomacy is thematically-appropriate for expressing a cunning observation made by one of my students: "The Romans said they were all big and bad, but then they acted like they'd never seen an elephant before."
29 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 6: Well, that's up to the ride creators at Mauretania-land.
30 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 6: For the record: I want to admit that it's pretty clear, all other things being equal, Persia had my number in this game.
30 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 6: No chance I could cash in on that sentiment to ask for a draw? While I will fight to the last, I don't mind admitting that it's not looking particularly rosy.
30 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 6: Hey, so I was just putting my orders in to my army at Tyre. Turns out, I can convoy all the way to Carthage! What say you all? Anyone up for the craziest convoy train ever? Rome, you've got the SC to spare anyways.
30 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 6: *crickets*
30 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 6: come on guys... it'll be fun!
30 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 6: Or you could put your moves in Persia... just saying
30 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 6: Those are the kind of sentiments I'm sharing.
30 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 6: I wish this game had a Like button.
31 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 7: (For the record, I will likely continue to take a while to put my moves in, not because I am trying to be a troll, but because I don't have a ton of time to check up on this and actually consider my position during most hours of the day).
31 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 7: Well thank you for putting your moves in early this time.
31 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 7: Yes, thank you, and understood.
03 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 8: At first I was afraid...
03 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 8: I was petrified
03 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 8: But then I forgot the words to the rest of the song
03 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 8: ...I will survive!
03 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 8: Ok, maybe I won't.
03 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 9: Greece let's support move Rome into Damascus
03 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 9: "When at the close of the third Punic war, Rome deliberated what was to be done with Carthage, and all voted to destroy it, as Rome would never be at peace so long as Carthage existed, there arose a wise man among them and advised against such a measure ' For,' said he ' this is the only thing that upholds you, and keeps our rabble, the Plebeians somewhat in check.'"
03 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 9: *Puts a Starbucks in Carthage*
03 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 9: Egypt, yeah, I agree.
03 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 9: So while that's going on I'm going to culturally appropriate Carthage and open up a chain of pastiche "Carthaginian" restaurants. Kind of like TGI Friday's with Ba'al in the corner.
04 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 9: Ok everyone... see that "Draw" button? Doesn't it look tempting? Just push it... push it once. See how it feels.
04 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 9: We'll be happy to push it after Autumn is assessed.
That is also the most heavily-supported unit I have ever seen.
04 Feb 15 UTC Hit them draw buttons. Good job everybody!
04 Feb 15 UTC Thanks guys *sniff* free drinks at Roman-Starbucks for life for all Greeks and Egyptians *cheesy thumbs up*
