1 excused missed turn
Game drawn
23 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 2002: Yup, I can move Arm at that point, should be moving to Adana at some point this turn
23 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 2002: Poland, keep the bounce in Prussia and maybe also bounce Cze-Kra and Austria-Hungary?
23 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 2002: Yes on bounce in Pru. For the others, let’s mutually support hold.
23 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 2002: That allows for more potential shenanigans. Bouncing into each other is safer..
23 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 2002: I was hoping to withdraw from Hungary to take pressure off of Italy... Perhaps you could withdraw from Austria at the same time?

Regarding Kra/Cze, do you want to order Kra->Cze and Cze->Kra?
23 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 2002: Would appreciate both as my armies are focused on the fronts
23 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 2002: Germany, I'm guessing you need no help in Lyons? Would you be able to support Marseilles into Auverge?
Also, I think we should leave France Bordeaux if they want it, cut them in on the draw. Would require France to respond, but feel like we can do without that 1 dip point it would require haha
23 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 2002: Poland, yes i meant for those units to bounce directly into each other. Otherwise, it leaves the possibility of one of us moving off to gain position and open for a build. For example I could move to Silesia and Slovakia, then build new armies in Cze and Austria. This way, if either of us moves off the center, the other one would walk into it, so there is a cost.
23 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 2002: Italy, I have no problem leaving France in Bordeaux. I agree he received raw deal here, so at least sharing in the draw seems appropriate.
23 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 2002: Ok Germany, I’ll put in orders for Hun->Aus and Kra->Cze, since your plan will keep us both from going after Italy as well.
23 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 2002: Also Bal->Pru of course
23 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 2002: I’ll also withdraw the Rum unit from the border.

Italy, if you move Arm->Adana with support, it will allow me to hit Turkey from the east.
23 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 2002: Poland, the move is already inputted. Definitely would love your armies down in the middle East. Feel free to move your fleet through if you want too to give me support in the Med. We can trade off Rum and Istanbul if you want to keep you fleet moving south
24 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 2002: @ Poland
I will now help you win a solo victory
I don’t know if it possible but I will try
25 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 2002: Same 3 bumps as last year, Germany.
25 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 2002: Yes
27 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 2003: Poland, Iran is yours to take.
Germany, we can figure out how to divide Spain, but if you are able to get a fleet in the SAO to help take Morocco, that would be lovely :)
27 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 2003: Will do. Also, Poland and I can use Austria and Hungary to bounce in Croatia if you want to protect from that fleet.
27 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 2003: I'll order Hun->Cro. It's a good plan.
27 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 2003: Poland, should we also bounce Sweden and StP in Gulf of Bothnia?
27 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 2003: Sure
28 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 2003: Italy, why are you moving fleets east? You’re setting the game up for Germany to capture the king’s share of SCs.
28 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 2003: Just moving those two fleets east to help with the med stuff. Tyrr Sea was supposed to move to Western Med, must have been a misorder
28 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 2003: Germany, do you mind supporting Algeria into Morocco?
28 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 2003: Germany: same 4 bounces as last season?
28 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 2003: Sure
28 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 2003: To both
29 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 2003: Cheers, thanks
29 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 2003: Poland, we split the last four SCs 2 and 2 (I can give you Ankara or whatever to make it easy), and then maybe Germany gives up an SC leaving us all at 21 (and France remains in on the draw)? How does that sound? Overall great game and great teamwork!
Sorry Germany, you might have nothing to do for this round, while we clean up the middle east. Good venture into Spain though, made quick work of Iberia
29 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 2003: Success good.
29 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 2003: *sounds good
29 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 2003: Sounds good to me too.
30 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 2004: Shall we continue with bounces? Or just start support holding around the map?
30 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 2004: I'm just support holding in most places, not too fussed
30 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 2004: I'd just as soon do the same. We all have enough density of units that a stab wouldn't get very far.
30 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 2004: poland, you ok with no bounces?
01 Dec 20 UTC Spring, 2004: Yeah that’s fine
01 Dec 20 UTC Spring, 2004: Italy, if you could help me keep my units moving southwards, I’d appreciate it.
01 Dec 20 UTC Spring, 2004: GameMaster: Game was extended due to at least 1 member failing to enter orders and having an excused missed turn available. This has un-readied all orders.
01 Dec 20 UTC Spring, 2004: Poland for sure. If I am able to take all three SCs in Africa, you can just move into Ankara because getting your army to Cairo or Aswan might just take extra turns.
And looks like France doesn't want to be part of the draw any longer... Germany, feel free to take Bordeaux I guess
01 Dec 20 UTC Spring, 2004: Ankara isn't at the bottleneck. But if you could support:
Iraq->Jor
Iran->Iraq
while attacking Cairo, that would help.
02 Dec 20 UTC Spring, 2004: So you two grab the last three centers this Autumn, then after the round refreshes we vote draw?
02 Dec 20 UTC Spring, 2004: Yup
03 Dec 20 UTC Autumn, 2004: Germany, did you want to give an SC to Poland, and then Poland can take Ankara for me (putting us all around 21, with Germany at 22, as even as can be)?

Other than that, great game Turkey and Egypt (well for the few rounds you joined in). Turkey, you were quite the opponent, especially with your hot start!
04 Dec 20 UTC Let’s get our draw votes in.
04 Dec 20 UTC mine is in.
04 Dec 20 UTC Good game Germany and Poland, great teamwork and ending
04 Dec 20 UTC nice job central powers. apologies to France, who got kind of a raw deal and to Ukraine who fought hard and competently only to be stabbed by Turkey at the worst possible moment.
04 Dec 20 UTC Good game all. Nice working with you, Germany and Italy.
04 Dec 20 UTC Well played g I & p.
