08 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: Aw, Condescension... you aren't THAT bad off... You get to build!
Which leads me to this update from the UDP
The first year's events are in the history books... with happy growth displayed by every nation in Europe! England landed her Navy in Norway, while the 1st Army wanders back to London, and appears to be loading at the docks. Russia expands both North and South. Will there be a boat in St. Pet? Or two armies soon? Turkey gains the Black Sea and of course, Bulges in Bulgaria, following a normal Turkish pattern. Austrian territory forms a crescent, but the expected army build in Budapest will form an optimistic line of defense. Although public press from the kaiser does not display an optimistic nature. Italy surprises Europe with a foray into Trieste, and lands the fleet in Tunis, instead of the usual transport. France is dull in her manifestation of French force... entering predictable moves and squabbling over waffles with Germany. French make better waffles, incidentally. Germany advances quickly (and in lock-step with Russia) threatening the stalemate line and leaving central Europe strangely... empty. But that is what builds are for!
12 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 1902: (Debates with self, to press the ready button or not to press the ready button, that is the question)
12 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 1902: Dew it!
16 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: Pernicious France attacks on both flanks! Apparently some dread storms have forced the French Navy (most noted for their flat bottoms, and therefore for their unseaworthiness) into neighboring ports. Whether or not those fleets remain in Pink and Green shipyards remains to be seen. Italy lands an army in Syria, getting ready for a supstantive attack on Turkey. Perhaps because Thanksgiving is coming soon. Russia defends her empire with fortitude, dancing ships and armies in a way that dazzled enemy generals and admirals. Germany lands in London, hoping to bring better dentistry to Albion, and nudges East and South a bit, too. Austria almost succeeds in defending her crescent, but loses Vienna to a German incursion. The news resisting inserting a Freudian Sexual Innuendo in that sentence. Turkey looks with disdain at the now-Green Syria, and plots and plans to stop further Italian incursions.
18 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: Is there anyone on this map that France will not stab? He hits Italy, he hits England, and now he hits his erstwhile confindante, The Teutonic Empire. The greedy gus even has more builds than he has places to place units. Boo! Hiss! England took a vacation, apparently... unless he is attempting a 'hold' strategy... those rarely work. Russia is battling in Scandinavia, looks interested in the Southern Areas more than the central. Turkey losis across the Straits, and is pestered by Italian units looking for a home. Austria rebuilds, firmly established again in the Austrian Crescent. Embattled and Betrayed Italy fights on bravely, with lots of Green still on the map. This season: what ships will be scuttled, armies faded away, and new units built? Time will tell.
18 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: (And our investigative reporters still wonder: what ploy is the Austrian Foreign Minister attempting with that remaining 'pause' order?)
20 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: Wall the World Wonders Why Wturkey Won't Wfinalize... :-)
20 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: That's stretching it.
20 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: That's Totally Too True... Tapologies.
20 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: I meant to say:

That's Thtreaching thit.
20 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: ^
23 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 1904: Turkey Carved Up Just in Time for Thanksgiving! Russia Wrestling with Germany... Germany Wrestling with Russia! Match of the Century! Italy Wounded but Still Fighting! Austria's Crescent Grows! England Brexit Complete: Now Known as Scotland! France Arrogantly Does Nothing!
26 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: gg
27 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: I don't think I've ever seen someone have 6 units in surplus before.
27 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: I am not sure this is something that secures bragging rights... poor planning, maybe. An opportune stab, maybe... but it mostly makes me sad.
27 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: Turkey achieves Day-after-Thanksgiving-status! The expanding Russian Bear goes on a pre-hibernation diet! The Austrian moon waxes! Soon it will be full! Germany keeps the wolves at bay, but succumbs to an evil French Stab! England remains Scottish! Italy regrets ever talking to the perfidious French! France’s greed knows no bounds! Will the excess of unbuilt units cause inflation??
04 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1905: FUCK FRANCE
05 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1905: Aren't we trying to get him to draw? That's not the way to do it
06 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1905: Goodbye game! I'm assuming it's not okay to say who my rival was.
06 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1905: Now you are off I don't see what damage would do.
06 Nov 17 UTC Spring, 1906: Actually, You shouldn't reveal. It might aid someone in some process of elimination. Of course, you could still be lying...
06 Nov 17 UTC Spring, 1906: I'd consider it a bit of a faux pas to influence the game after losing
06 Nov 17 UTC Spring, 1906: ^
08 Nov 17 UTC Spring, 1906: GG turkey, and Italy. I hope you enjoyed the variant.
Who came up with it, anyway? I don't recall.
08 Nov 17 UTC Spring, 1906: Austria I believe came up with the game Idea
08 Nov 17 UTC Spring, 1906: Yeah, me.
08 Nov 17 UTC Spring, 1906: I thought it was quite fun, a much more interesting 1901 for sure.
08 Nov 17 UTC Spring, 1906: I'd play again
08 Nov 17 UTC Spring, 1906: I'd play again another twist could be picking countries at random that have to play together.
08 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: Well, thanks, Condescension. I know it is too early for 'end analysis' but this variant altered my negotiations...
08 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: And I would play again
08 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: I would also play again, though this variant put me from the beginning in a hard position.
08 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: I would also play again, though this variant put me from the beginning in a hard position.
08 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: Yeah. Germany also got the short end of the stick. Drawing Austria as Germany basically means you have to solo to win.
08 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: I might have been able to indirectly get you dead by not moving your direction. You being Austria and all.
08 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: I dunno. I feel like Austria is actually the real behemoth of this variant. Getting 3-wayed is way less likely, and many of your neighbors likely require your helo if their rivak is on the other side of you.
08 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: Basically turning Austria's weakness (too many neighbors) into a strength.
08 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: Yeah. That makes sense. Although it did look like you were going to die for a year or two.
11 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: GG Italy and England.
Apologies to both...
Especially Italy, whom I lied to atrociously.
11 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: It was a nice game, hope you meet you all in a game.
11 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: gg
12 Nov 17 UTC Draw vote is up
12 Nov 17 UTC Interesting game
I am regretting not trying for the solo. :-/
Good allies made all the difference.
12 Nov 17 UTC Yes, you could have the solo. It was a good game. See you around guys.
Now it is over I am curious what the rivals were.
12 Nov 17 UTC My rival was Turkey.

Why didn't you go for the solo France?
12 Nov 17 UTC Oh yeah... my rival was Italy.
I didn't go for the solo because generally, I keep my word. Not always. But in this game, Russia and I decided early to draw. It was never really an issue for me to NOT draw. I realize that I am a minority in this view, but Diplomacy is not Chess. A draw, if that was the intention, and what was planned for, and worked towards... is a win to me. Initially, Italy had to die for me, though. Nothing personal, of course. But Italy, as my rival, was a win condition. Eventually I agreed to include Austria in the draw because a) I think it would have been difficult to finish him off without 'accidentally' soloing. Russia would have had to have taken every SC from Austria. And b) a two draw isn't that much different from a three draw. And c) my ally seemed to want it.
12 Nov 17 UTC My rival was England
12 Nov 17 UTC I go by my word too and when I discovered I was your rival and with Russia being mine I knew my only hope was a solo which had nothing to do with rivals. Either way it was a good game. Till the next time my friends.
12 Nov 17 UTC My rival was France
13 Nov 17 UTC My Rival was Germany
