08 Jun 08 UTC Spring, 1903: [Puts hand up] Me! Oh, pick me! I can do it!
08 Jun 08 UTC Spring, 1903: let me rephrase that then anyone who is capable of getting to england in the next to want to take over england that meens u germany and france
08 Jun 08 UTC Spring, 1903: Germany insists on fighting me and so does Italy.
08 Jun 08 UTC Spring, 1903: under new management
08 Jun 08 UTC Spring, 1903: Ynglind: Best wishes & Swedish Fishes!
08 Jun 08 UTC Spring, 1903: well that didnt last long
08 Jun 08 UTC Spring, 1903: and all but germany is at the same time wow
08 Jun 08 UTC Spring, 1903: Russia: Your last sentence made negative sense >_>
08 Jun 08 UTC Spring, 1903: i missed a word becuase u was typing fast it was ment to say all but germany is on at the same time now it all but england and germany in all my other games there is never more then 1 person on at a time
09 Jun 08 UTC Spring, 1903: Sorry I wasn't on at the same time everyone else was-- I was at a bar listening to a really good jazz group who had seriously the most ridiculously good clarinet player I've heard since Benny Goodman.

I'll write my moves soon-- I just want to look at the other messages I've received in other games.
09 Jun 08 UTC Autumn, 1903: Italy, are you really leaving Venice open just to get Mar?
09 Jun 08 UTC Autumn, 1903: Not leaving Venice - just sending a peace message to AUS :)
09 Jun 08 UTC Autumn, 1903: Turkey, that was a royally foul back-stab you just delivered. As an act of retributive justice, I demand that you watch half an hour of The Prime Number Shitting Bear with your speaker volume turned up to its maximum:

http://alpha61.com/primenumbershittingbear/

And think about what you've done!
09 Jun 08 UTC Autumn, 1903: Is that safe for work? I'm tempted to look but I don't want to get fired.

Not that I should be here in the first place. >_>
09 Jun 08 UTC Autumn, 1903: It's safe for work. The prime number shitting bear is just a .gif stick figure image. Turn your sound off, though.
09 Jun 08 UTC Autumn, 1903: I've got headphones. =)
09 Jun 08 UTC Autumn, 1903: Sorry, Austria. I could only stand about a minute of that bear.
13 Jun 08 UTC Autumn, 1905: I R DYING; TURKEY R LYING.
13 Jun 08 UTC Autumn, 1905: wll im dead at the end of this turn the game was fun team against austria and he might not win other wise there isno stopping him
13 Jun 08 UTC Autumn, 1905: against Austria? I think you mean against Turkey. There's plenty stopping me from winning.

although I must say, my country's shape on the map IS THE SHIT.
13 Jun 08 UTC Spring, 1906: I don't know. It's a nice round shape, with a neat hole punched through the centre. What's wrong with that?
16 Jun 08 UTC Spring, 1907: It's shrunk a bit now.
16 Jun 08 UTC Autumn, 1907: I'm just trying to give it a different shape!
18 Jun 08 UTC Autumn, 1909: I feel like I'm in a slow-acting garbage compactor.
18 Jun 08 UTC Autumn, 1909: know you know how i felt
18 Jun 08 UTC Autumn, 1909: Bob the Compactor
Can we crush it?
Bob the Compactor
Yes, we can!
18 Jun 08 UTC Autumn, 1909: stabbage cabbage.

YES WE CAN HAS!
18 Jun 08 UTC Autumn, 1909: Oh, now this is just getting ridiculous. lol
18 Jun 08 UTC Autumn, 1909: I just do not understand this? Why do people backstab even when it is illogical? Is it such fun?
18 Jun 08 UTC Autumn, 1909: Perhaps it only seems illogical to the person being stabbed. That's when stabbage cabbage is most effective: when it is least expected.
18 Jun 08 UTC Spring, 1910: Stabbing is AWESOME when you're the one doing it.
18 Jun 08 UTC Spring, 1910: I wish to note, for the record, that I did not "enjoy" stabbing Austria. It was, however, necessary.
18 Jun 08 UTC Spring, 1910: sombody want to give me sc
18 Jun 08 UTC Spring, 1910: *stares at Sweden from Berlin* Um... if I say "no" will you not try to take it?

Oh well, good luck getting it with the megalomaniacal Limey here.
18 Jun 08 UTC Spring, 1910: Maybe you can get Ynglind to convoy you across the Baltic Sea.
19 Jun 08 UTC Spring, 1910: Ahahaha, that's a good one.
25 Jun 08 UTC Autumn, 1912: Italy and Turkey have agreed to end the game on the basis that Englans and Italy cede to Turkey the (now) three supply centres it needs to get to 18. Can we count on England's support?
25 Jun 08 UTC Spring, 1913: yeah

25 Jun 08 UTC Spring, 1913: Could I then suggest that England leaves St. Petersburg and Kiel uncovered (ie. without support), and Italy leaves Venice uncovered, this season? I can support myself into all three and the job will be done.
25 Jun 08 UTC Spring, 1913: why are you doing this? make turkey work for his win! you are giving away points!
25 Jun 08 UTC Spring, 1913: England has far too many fleets to make much headway against Turkey, even with Italian help. Italy can't break through into the Aegean. We therefore face a long, grinding battle, which will probably end with either a moment of tactical genius leading to a Turkish win; or, more likely, Italy or England stabbing each other out of sheer frustration, again leading to a Turkish win.

Moreover, even Italy acknowledges that the previous English player never would have allied with him against Turkey.

So, we're just seeking the outcome that comes closest to what would have, and is still likely to, occur in the circumstances.
25 Jun 08 UTC Spring, 1913: they should still fight it out instead of surrendering. If England won't help Italy, than it is England's fault for being too stubborn.
25 Jun 08 UTC Spring, 1913: Not quite my point: England is helping Italy, but it still won't be enough.
25 Jun 08 UTC Spring, 1913: If I was Italy, and England was committed to helping me, I could win this game.
25 Jun 08 UTC Spring, 1913: Good for you!

25 Jun 08 UTC Spring, 1913: now now. Don't mock him.
25 Jun 08 UTC Spring, 1913: I am Italy and I am ok with this plan - leaving Venice this turn
25 Jun 08 UTC Now, I think we just hold for the Autumn and it should be all over ...
25 Jun 08 UTC Thank you for a great game, everybody (and especially Italy, for our really tough battle over the Ionian Sea).

I suppose I should explain my supported move to Holland. It was to guard against:

English F BEL - HOL
English F HOL - KIE
English A DEN - S F HOL - KIE
English F PRU - BER
Italian A BUR - MUN

... which I believe was the only way England and Italy could have taken Kiel back again (were they so inclined). As this attack would have annihilated my army in Kiel, which was a long way from home and would therefore take a correspondingly long time to replace, I had to protect myself.

I am, however, sorry that my moves cost England a build.
