Pot: 175 D - Autumn, 1908, Finished
Classic, Draw-Size Scoring
1 excused missed turn
Game drawn
03 Sep 10 UTC Autumn, 1907: haha
it seems only appropriate...
03 Sep 10 UTC Autumn, 1907: to preface...this is the poem that won turkeys heart and convinced him to turn on italy instead of kill me
and then i proceeded to stab him anyway
03 Sep 10 UTC Autumn, 1907: This was after the first of three stabs Austria made against me. He tried to win my support back with this poem:

11:00 PM (To: You, from Austria) - Autumn, 1904: oh turkey my dearest friend
austria pledges to you till the end
italy attempts the most treacherous stab
all of my land he tries to grab
you and i could win this game together
a team like two twins, or birds of a feather
03 Sep 10 UTC Autumn, 1907: Probably the best moment I've ever had in a game.
03 Sep 10 UTC Autumn, 1907: haha nice
03 Sep 10 UTC Autumn, 1907: man we've got terrible luck with France's
03 Sep 10 UTC Autumn, 1907: it took some effort to fit in birds of a feather to rhyme with together
03 Sep 10 UTC Autumn, 1907: no wonder he's where he is now
03 Sep 10 UTC Autumn, 1907: I feel like I couldn't not take him back after that. And then he stabbed me again. And again.
03 Sep 10 UTC Autumn, 1907: i would jion him if he spent tht much time on it
03 Sep 10 UTC Autumn, 1907: it was only one stab after the poem
03 Sep 10 UTC Autumn, 1907: Are you sure? I feel like the whole not opening up Bulgaria after you promised was kind of a stab, too. At least, I never believed that it was that innocent.
03 Sep 10 UTC Spring, 1908: that was what i was counting as the stab
what else happened?
03 Sep 10 UTC Spring, 1908: Then you let me into Bulgaria in the spring, and attacked me again.
03 Sep 10 UTC Spring, 1908: i guess
i thoughts that what you were referring to in the first place
but i really had nowhere to go when i was going to let you into bulgaria
i needed the fleet
03 Sep 10 UTC Spring, 1908: so it was a quasi-stab
03 Sep 10 UTC So, are we going to call it a draw? Or does this keep going?
03 Sep 10 UTC That's what I was wondering.
03 Sep 10 UTC well nothing happens until russia votes draw
and then after that...i might require poetry to be coerced
03 Sep 10 UTC i voted draw
03 Sep 10 UTC austria is red
france is blue
calling a draw
is the honorable thing to do
03 Sep 10 UTC amateur hour poetry
03 Sep 10 UTC I like it.
03 Sep 10 UTC there's naught so haughty as civil disorder
with armies and navies idle at borders
awaiting their neighbors' greedy maw
let's avoid it and just vote a draw
03 Sep 10 UTC it was a very good game with all the changing of alliances/backstabs
03 Sep 10 UTC wow....
03 Sep 10 UTC i like it more
03 Sep 10 UTC Handsome Austria, give us a sweet good-bye
Please press draw and grant us a tie
While it’s been great fun to watch you conquer
Going for the win diminishes your saunter
Even terms is what we ask
Though you could carry on & raise your victory flask
03 Sep 10 UTC show off :)
03 Sep 10 UTC i am so impressed right now
03 Sep 10 UTC you fucker germany
03 Sep 10 UTC haha
03 Sep 10 UTC touche my friends
and it has been my deepest honor to share the field of diplomacy and banter with you gentlemen
03 Sep 10 UTC it doesn't matter anyway, we're calling a draw, aren't we?
03 Sep 10 UTC nice one italy
03 Sep 10 UTC all that's left is for austria to press the magic button - we salute you sir.
03 Sep 10 UTC still i thought we had somethin special against england
03 Sep 10 UTC this might go down as some of the best few hours of my life
03 Sep 10 UTC all that's left is for austria to press the magic button - we salute you sir.
03 Sep 10 UTC o yea, i keep forgetting that part... : )
03 Sep 10 UTC You didn't have anything available to provide help against him.
03 Sep 10 UTC There once was a man from Trieste
Who wasn't easily impressed
He laid down the law,
but then voted draw,
And we all thought he was the best.
03 Sep 10 UTC all that's left is for austria to press the magic button - we salute you sir.
03 Sep 10 UTC Yeah, that's right. A limerick.
03 Sep 10 UTC Good game, everyone. Seriously.
03 Sep 10 UTC well not bad boys except for italy
03 Sep 10 UTC i feel i owe it to this game to throw down the haiku next, huh?
03 Sep 10 UTC Nice... I had this ready to go:


If Austria continues with this deep charade.
I’ll commit to Viennese victory parade.
How far can Franz Ferdinand go
When five other nations can stand and say no
For peace in our time is what we’ll cry
As we precede to watch the Arch Duke die
03 Sep 10 UTC and yes, fantastic game to all
especially russia
i hope he has played us all and sits behind his little russian computer laughing his ass off at how he survived to this point
03 Sep 10 UTC to conclude this game i postulate this
a more perfect game of diplo cannot exist
with banter aplenty and stabbing galore
to not call the draw i'd feel but a whore
and as we part ways and drift out of sight,
i cry merry christmas to all, and to all a good night
