12 May 20 UTC Autumn, 2000: Good game guys!
13 May 20 UTC Autumn, 2000: Good game, Italy!
13 May 20 UTC Spring, 2001: GG
13 May 20 UTC Spring, 2001: GG, Turkey.
13 May 20 UTC Spring, 2001: And Italy!
13 May 20 UTC Spring, 2001: Well, *almost* everyone left in the game agrees to a draw. I think the majority should rule here.
14 May 20 UTC Spring, 2001: Germany's got what it takes to push for a full victory; no real reason not to
14 May 20 UTC Spring, 2001: Shhhhhh
14 May 20 UTC Spring, 2001: I'm not gonna agree to a draw just yet, I will carry out my plan and see if I can pull this off. But I'm not blind, you have pretty strong defense line and good cooperation with it. As far as I can see, I'll either manage to solo this in two years or I have to accept the draw!
14 May 20 UTC Spring, 2001: But GG everyone else! My special love for Italy! :)
14 May 20 UTC Autumn, 2001: <3
15 May 20 UTC Bout that time, huh Germany?
15 May 20 UTC Yeah, seems like it. Only way for me to win now is you to make some huge mistakes and I don't see that happening :D Well played you trio! You'll have your draw!
15 May 20 UTC I got so close that that I still think my solo trying was worth the shot. I didn't expect you to form a defensive line that effectively. But hey, this was my first time playing Modern Diplomacy and you learn something new every day!
15 May 20 UTC Great game guys!
15 May 20 UTC Great game everyone!
15 May 20 UTC Yeah, everyone. Great game. Special hat tip for Spain making himself essential to a standoff as a small power. I always admire it when players are able to accomplish that.

Germany, you were totally right to go for the solo. I knew it when you had 16 centers. I don't know if he's still around, but I was completely genuine with Italy when I was pointing that out and intending to stay with him as a way to resist you. It was good play and good diplomacy on your part that convinced me that Italy was going to crumble and that taking a big piece of it was going to be actually better than allowing you to take proportionally more of it. In retrospect, I'm still not sure if that was true. I did know by that point that I could work effectively with Egypt, and I thought we could stop you.

I was wrong, of course. It wasn't long before I was trying to salvage a small Italy and Spain so we actually could stop you. It worked with Spain, but Italy didn't even respond. If he had, he'd probably be here. Though we showed that we could stop the line at Italy without that power, I'm pretty certain we never would have taken the risk of wiping him out from behind and hoping to plug the hole in time.

Egypt, I don't feel like we really got to know each other. By the time we started really actively talking, there really wasn't any negotiation and such. The only course of action was to Stop Germany. But I appreciate that you were able jump on the "act like we're one color" bandwagon so quickly. That trait isn't quite as common as I'd like it to be, and it was a joy to find it here.

Thanks all! This was a good and fun game for me.
15 May 20 UTC Thanks! Very good analysis of the game! See you soon in another game!
15 May 20 UTC Well said, Ukraine! Thanks everyone for the game!
