02 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: If Germany fails to show up by the end of this phase, I vote we cancel and retry it -- no one likes a game that gets thrown off-balance by a first-turn CD.
07 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: GameMaster: Aloha Snackbar was banned: repeat multi . The time until the next phase has been extended by one phase length to give an opportunity to replace the player.
Remember to finalize your orders if you don't want to wait, so the game isn't held up unnecessarily!
09 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: Germany contribution to the game. Well he actually moved once or twice, thus avoiding a Vote for a cancel. I messaged 3 times in 1901-1902. Total responses; zero. Playing the wrong game buddy.
09 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: I propped him up for a phase. That was the extent of our interaction.

I would charitably call it an interesting approach to Diplomacy gameplay.
11 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: My apologies to all. I had a family nember get hurt and was back and forth between hospital, work, and their home. I recorded my second and third nmr in this game unfortunately because I was that overwhelmed. I am sorry it skewed the game for you all. It was an aberration to my play and committment to the game. Good luck all and once again I'm sorry.
11 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: Well, don't I feel like the fucking asshole.

Sorry, man.
11 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: Player of Germany, sorry that I commented on or disparaged your contribution. I am sorry to hear of your family situation and I'm sure that on any normal day, you're a conscientious Diplomat.
Regards, Player of France.
11 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: Hope your family member recovers soon, Germany.
14 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: Well that failed :D Turkey, grab Vienna and Sev, I won't contest them, and well draw this as agreed. Just had to take a shot, just in case :)
14 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: "Farewell and adieu unto you Spanish ladies
Farewell and adieu to you ladies of Spain
For it's we've received orders for to sail for old England
But we hope very soon we shall see you again"
14 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: *shoulda said "old Russia". Oh well, last mistake of the game.
14 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1908: Thanks Russia, well played, well participated. Unfortunately for you, England and France played the solid alliance right up till now. With that as a given, you're only chance for a part share of the Draw would be to takeout Turkey.
15 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1908: Yeah. Well played Russia. Sorry that things didn't go our (mostly your) way in this one. Thought we had a chance at battlin back with Austria but France outdiplomatted us or Austria just mucked it up depending on how you look at it. You were a good ally.
15 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1908: Yeah, good on you guys (France and England) keeping the Entente going til 1908, I was hoping we could stymie you guys until one of you stabbed the other. It didn't work out.

Turkey, 'twas a pleasure working with you. Give 'em hell.
16 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: Good game, Austria!
16 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: Thanks Austria, wasn't to be your game but always a hard challenge to play Austria and with a weak Germany you really had no chance.
16 Jun 15 UTC Excellent game everyone! Thanks for the good alliance, France -- you did a great job of keeping us even and preventing me from having an easy stab. Turkey, great survival towards the end there. Thanks everyone else!

Thanks for game all. From the get go I realised that GER was bit submitting and therefore opportunistically directed a northern opening to try and grab BEL.
In 1902 Germany was back on the scene but not able to be effective against forming alliances.
I therefore resolved to keep England on side due to better opportunities elsewhere across the Board in the southern regions.
Once Germany was all but gone in 1904, I was fortunate that England continued into Russia.
E-F successfully kept a lid on our growth tensions until very late in the Game.
Ironically and amazingly, we both decided to steal a march on each other at exactly the same time, both recognising that the other was overextended to the East and thus seeing an opportunity to raid the home base and capture the flag. Amusingly we both did this simultaneously and thus cancelled each others initiative.
Turkey, well done to partake int eh Draw and thanks for being a good Diplomat and agreeing to a pragmatic Draw result which was a complete reality of the situation.
To Russia, Austria - well played through the entire Game, you both battled valiantly.
Regards, France.
