13 Jun 18 UTC Spring, 1901: Hello everyone. I'm Phil, aka The General Elliott. Disclaimer - I know Mick and game with him every Monday in Lytham.
Look forward to the game, good luck everyone, although obviously not those of you I intend to attack at some point in the game!
13 Jun 18 UTC Spring, 1901: The game is now up and running! (Note that the 'game' selected the sides randomly).

You can make your moves and then save them. If you want to commit to them then click "ready". Once everyone is ready the moves will take effect. After 7 days the moves will take place whether you are ready or not. Anyone who doesn't make any orders will be deemed to have made 'hold' orders.

If you click save (your orders) and then 'ready' a green tick is displayed next to the Saved button. The ready button can quickly be toggled back and the tick will revert to grey. Below the orders you can see all 7 nations and their current state. You can quickly see who is ready to proceed (green tick) and who is saved but not ready to proceed (grey tick). Two exclamation marks indicate that the nation has not submitted any orders.

The website allows global messages (Phil has already posted) and PM's to the other players / nations. Whewnever a new message is available you will see a mail icon next to the global or nation buttons.

Finally, remember that this is a game and meant to be fun. You WILL get stabbed in the back by people you think you can rely on or people who claim to be your friends. Get over it! May the best nation win.
14 Jun 18 UTC Spring, 1901: If you aren't really sure what you are doing (like me with every game until after the first few rounds) there is a great wiki page with suggested opening strategies - just go to the following site but replace France with your own country

14 Jun 18 UTC Spring, 1901: You're welcome - be kind :D

02 Jul 18 UTC Autumn, 1901: Hi everyone, I am sad to report that due to personal reasons Italy will no longer be playing an active roll in the game. There isn't an easy way to remove a player but we have written to the site admin asking if the Italy player can be removed. In the short term all Italy moves will be 'Hold' moves unless circumstances or the situation changes. Just FYI Austria is also recovering from an operation but in this case you are encouraged to 'kick a man when he is down' and PM him encouraging him to make his move - he has no excuses for such dilly-dallying. Hope you are all having fun.
13 Jul 18 UTC Autumn, 1902: Update on Italy - essentially we can't remove Italy from the game. However, if Italy doesn't make a move or login for two turns then he is automatically removed from the game. I have asked Italy to not login again but that does mean that the next two turns will take the full 7 days. After that we can proceed more quickly if all moves have been made.
01 Aug 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: Neither France, Austria nor Italy made a move last time.

Probably time to abandon the game?

If you agree vote cancel below.
01 Aug 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: Nooooooooo - I'm doing OK in this game - hopeless in the others (probably because half the people have stopped playing). Seriously I'm OK to cancel and start a new game.
01 Aug 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: See what others say. I'm happy to carry on if others are.
02 Aug 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: hmm it is a bit rubbish if almost half the nations have dropped out :(
02 Aug 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: I agree - add your vote to cancel below.
Mick can you contact the other players and ask them to vote to cancel.
22 Aug 18 UTC Spring, 1904: Italy and Austria now appear in italics.
That may mean they are in "civil disorder" and they can no longer make moves.
I have voted "draw" as well as cancel. If the remaining players do that it may bring matters to an end sooner.
I'll carry on making moves but this is a dead game.
