Classic, Survivors-Win Scoring
1 excused missed turn
Game won by WhiteSammy (57 D)
07 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1903: Agreed Agreed Agreed. It really sucks when people get the advantage from another player abandoning the game. He should take comfort in sticking the knife (or spoon) into his tormentors, even if ultimately it doesn't change his fate. Because it may change theirs. We shall see. If he doesn't show up, it will have a SIGNIFICANT effect this turn.....
07 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1903: Oh wow...i just realized that he can retreat to Sev.

Russia what have you done to yourself?
07 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1903: Has anyone ever played in a game where all countries get into "character"?

Just wondering because a while back(can't remember exactly which game it was) i had a game where everyone was addressing each other by their Head of State(at the time) names and the banter was quite humorous.
07 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1903: I would LOVE to do that. Every pore of my history major is agreeing with you.
07 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1903: lol @ random outburst of enthusiasm

hmmm....seeing as i have apparently decided to stray from correct syntax for no particular reason lets play a game

its called "guess my age". no questions can be asked by anyone but you must use only context clues give by the way someone else has typed in the chat in previous conversations in order to deduce their approximate age.

I'll start with my attempt at Italy. Let's see.....
Capitalized letters in username, has graduated college, uses correct grammar and syntax to the "t", all capped "LOVE" in above statement, and uses emoticons fairly regularly.

Having graduated puts you(based on average age of americans graduating college) over 22-23 depending on when you were born and how long you took on your major(History = probably a 4 year(could be 3 in US with some summer school)). Grammar usage either means you are slightly outside of the Y generation or you are a stickler for such things...ill go with the former. Use of all caps and emoticons indicates either a strong connection with Y generation age people OR an attempt at retrogressing in maturity in an attempt to relate to probable age of those you are communicating with.

All in all my, random shot in the dark lands on 25-28 with me leaning more towards 25 than to 28. FYI i was originally was going to say 27 but have, for some reason, decided to lower my guess.

Discuss....

Oh and Olympic you don't have to confirm or deny but you wouldn't want to be a fuddy-dud now would you? /attempt at peer pressure
07 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1903: Heh - not really. I'm 20. I've been told I'm either more mature than people my age, or much less. But yeah, in university, four year program. Other than age, you're pretty good.
07 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1903: Ah, so you lied to us. I'm devastated. By "History Major" i had wrongly assumed that you mean you had already graduated. Blast you and your unintentional misdirection.

Since you have spoiled the fun I would like to suggest that you give it a go.
07 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1903: Meh. Determined to pursue history, so I feel vilified in calling myself that.

Based on what you're saying, I'm going to go with slightly older than myself - probably around 24/25. Mind, philology is HARDLY my specialty, but your style of typing, as well as the fact that you too pay attention to grammar and spelling, indicate that you're educated; but the fact remains that the slashes to indicate actions, as well as the random l337 moments thrown in (such as @ for at, et cetera) indicate that you still have the techie moments/ability.
07 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1903: lol @ 1337

....js
07 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1903: JS?
07 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1903: "just saying"
07 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1903: and no im not quite that old.
07 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1903: Alright. Wanna tell us then?
07 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1903: There's no fun in that. Otherwise it wouldn't be a game now would it?
07 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1903: I am however still in college studying Game Level Design with a touch of Graphical Design.
07 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1903: Shooting for a certain company to work for?
07 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1903: At this point in time, no. I am still trying to figure out what kind of games i would like to get involved with and when i do i will look for intern opportunities at companies with similar interests.
08 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 1903: >>>>>>>>>>> sound of trumpets <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

Into the valley of death, rode the six hundred.
Except this time, based on the non-leaked moves, we're going to kick your asses :)
08 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 1903: Is that optimism or blind faith?
08 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 1903: neither, it's poetry :)
08 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 1903: I nice little rendition.
08 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 1903: Alright, who turned the centrifuge on in the Balkans?
08 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 1903: I don't know about you guys but i like my Austria shaken not stirred.
08 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 1903: how about ground?
08 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 1903: I hope Ormi sees the humor in this....
08 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 1903: Actually, WE are being ground, for a variety of reasons. Looks like Ormi will outlast us all....
08 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 1903: :)
08 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 1903: I will admit. This is getting pretty absurd.
08 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 1903: Masterful moves by France. Congrats.
08 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 1903: Yeah, Tassadar, you're doing VERY well.
08 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 1903: I am taking WAYYYY to many gambits in this game, and most of them are paying off :)
08 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 1903: Also, England totally tipped me off on where he was going :P
09 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 1903: England, I know you still get message notifications. Don't be a fuddy-dud, no one wants to play with them again. Trust me, I stayed in a Holiday Inn Express last night.
13 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1905: GG England, I hope to play with you in another game sometime in the future. You did well and i just want to that you for your participation in this game.
14 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1905: Sorry for not finalizing but ive been very busy this weekend and wasn't sure what my computer time would look like. I have a phone which i can use to both see games and chat but i hate doing so in most cases.
14 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: ... I'm pulling a 1494 Milan.
14 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: Waiting for Godot...wait...Russia :P
16 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1906: Motion for a draw.....?
16 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1906: The Holy See (Now established on a minuscule island in the Adriatic) approves said motion.
16 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1906: mayyybeeeee...once we clear out these nasty looking green and purple spots on the map :P
16 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1906: And the Avignon Papacy begins.
16 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1906: As you can see by my record, im not one for premeditated draws. I prefer to play the game and and only settle for a draw when a stalemate is forced.

Sorry but you will not be getting my vote.
16 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1906: It was more or less a bit of a joke in combination with an off-chance pity-ploy.
16 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1906: ... I didnt lose Venice this last turn? OMG.
17 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: all in due time....all in due time
21 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: Bout time.
22 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: weeeeeeeeeeee
Stupid phone. I could get on here, but I couldn't click on anything to send messages or submit orders. I am home now and I have my lappy back.
22 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: Welcome back. Figured you were a zombie. Did the Russian housecleaning. The green spots are still there, though.
24 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 1908: good game, all =)
27 Feb 11 UTC I hate to say it, France, but I told you.
