02 Apr 16 UTC Spring, 1907: I declare Turkey my eternal friend and insist he be part of the draw. Much like Austria begged me to eliminate England but I stayed loyal, I too will with Turkey. It's a shame Austria is such a bully but I'll stand resolute.
03 Apr 16 UTC You are spécial Valis I did not know It was the use to say publicly What it is said privately but hey I'm quite new on this site I still need to learn.
In this case Valis why did not you mention you proposed me to stab your "friend" England to incite me to stab my only but strong friend from the beginning Italy? Why dont you say you did the same with Italy against me?
I believe Diplomacy is a game of discussion, of lies of false rumors of misinformation... But I also believe they need to stay private unless it is public messages only.
I draw now, Turkey played very well and deserves a draw. Thanks guys for this game, It was fun and instructive. Special Thanks to Italy It was a pleasure to exchange about the moves every turn. I learnt a lot Thanks to you.
03 Apr 16 UTC ITALY EOG:
Thanks everyone for playing and to our host for setting things up. This was my first Diplomacy game in 15 years.

G and A were the strongest communicators with me and the only one's interested in working together. Thus, our strategy sent me against F and ultimately E. My initial move to Tyrolia was agreed upon with A/G. I had hoped this move would generated meaningful offers from EFRT asking me to stab A/G. But the only responses were along the lines of "Why don't you go stab A while I do nothing for you". Lacking alternatives, I committed myself to being A's ally. Throughout the game, I previewed my moves with A, and I think it kept our alliance together.

In the west, I was a bit surprised at the stable EG alliance, particularly given how G manipulated the situation to his advantage - quickly clearing out R and then F, leaving only a few scraps for E. Poor F suffered from the lack of a strong R, and the deck was thus stacked against him. G's size concerned me greatly, but once I saw, a F fleet in Spain(south coast), my plans were set against F. E's army in Scandinavia let to the inevitable cul-de-sac in St Petersburg, but this spread him out quite precariously. G could easily have taken E down. Generousity is a wonderful virtue, but depending on it in Diplomacy is not optimal strategy.

In the east, I expected a RT juggernaut, mainly because neither showed interest in talking. Very frustrating, since R is often I's best ally. This forced me closer to Austria. I was quite surprised to see Russia go north instead of south and not bounce BLA. T is I's natural enemy, and I was expecting an early F-T squeeze but nothing materialized.

Diplomacy gets its name from the communication that goes on between players. Deal with me or at least lie to me. But silence (or unsubstantial communication) early in the game can be fatal. It is not surprise that the two most talkative players occupied #1 and #2. Congratulations to all in the draw, but particularly to A and G.
