19 Nov 08 UTC Spring, 1901: Welcome to the game! I would have rather had an eastern country, but France will do...
19 Nov 08 UTC Spring, 1901: Interesting - someone who said the randomizer was screwed was right - this is my third Italian game of four games registered. :-)
19 Nov 08 UTC Spring, 1901: I joined a game as France, and now I'm France somewhere else...
19 Nov 08 UTC Spring, 1901: FYI, if anyone wants the game to move faster at any point, if all players have finalized orders, it'll leap ahead to the next round. - R.III
19 Nov 08 UTC Spring, 1901: And now what?
19 Nov 08 UTC Spring, 1901: Start lying to people and get ready to race for the dots...
19 Nov 08 UTC Spring, 1901: What do the green checks and red crosses next to the player/country below mean?
19 Nov 08 UTC Spring, 1901: Green means they've filed final orders, red means still unfiled or tentative orders. If everyone has a green check but you, it means you're literally holding up the game.
19 Nov 08 UTC Spring, 1901: OK now how do you move units? I see the drop down menus but not the directions where to move them...There is no instructions anywhere.
19 Nov 08 UTC Spring, 1901: Click "Update" after choosing "Move". It should refresh with directions.
19 Nov 08 UTC Spring, 1901: Hi All, something important to consider is that I am the only on in the stupid Euro time zone which means I am now switching off until 10 hours from now so please consider this if I am not answering messages, dont get mad at me ;-)
19 Nov 08 UTC Spring, 1901: Fucking Skyfish.
20 Nov 08 UTC Spring, 1901: :mad :mad :mad
20 Nov 08 UTC Spring, 1901: We must have gotten our final player yesterday. I didn't know that. ;)
21 Nov 08 UTC Autumn, 1901: The Tsar's press office announces dismay that war has once again broken out in Europe and declares that Russia is a peace loving nation which only desires to defend it's own borders. The Tsar was quoted as saying "War is terrible, terrible. Some body get me another cigarette and top off my champagne!"
24 Nov 08 UTC Autumn, 1902: The Tsar has shown his true evil, conniving face to the whole of Europe, beware my friends.
24 Nov 08 UTC Autumn, 1902: The Tsar was quoted today saying "We cannot allow the Turkish Empire to continue to enslave our Orthodoxed brothers in Bulgaria and Greece. Oh ward, Armies of Orthodoxed Christianity!"
24 Nov 08 UTC Autumn, 1902: In other news, the Italian government ordered a nationwide seizure of all sausage stockpiles, anticipating that "the free exchange of fresh sausage might be interrupted during the coming era of European swordplay," in the words of the Prime Minister. Italian citizens in possession of one or more sausages are ordered to report to the local public bath with their supply for inspection by a designated local official, whereupon each sausage may be held for up to sixty days under the order. Under the new rule, foreign visitors are entitled to retain one (1) sausage of foreign manufacture only.

When asked if French wines would also be rationed in the coming crisis, the Prime Minister spat on a pile of feces in the nearby street, shouting "Wine? The French make wine? Are you mad?"

Developing...
24 Nov 08 UTC Autumn, 1902: The French foreign minister offered his view on the Italian PM's actions today with a cryptic "We don't care what he thinks, the King still makes all of the decisions."
27 Nov 08 UTC Autumn, 1903: What a goddamn mess.
27 Nov 08 UTC Autumn, 1903: Tell me about it. Austria is destermined to kill himself and take me down with him. :(
27 Nov 08 UTC Autumn, 1903: The Tsar regrets the perfidy of the Austrians but was quoted as saying "they've left their entire homeland wide open and now Italian, Turkish, and German armies will pour in". In other news Gen. Smirnoff has reportedly been making good use of the Sultan's harem. After a particularly rousing session he let the entire Russian southern army take turns with the Sultan's wives and concubines. Said one Russian soldier "it was great but how come it hurts every time I pee now?"
27 Nov 08 UTC Autumn, 1903: Because Sky hadn't bothered to lubricate his arse before he bent it your way?
29 Nov 08 UTC Autumn, 1903: Wow, I make some kind of stupid error - ??? - in my hold order, and that looks like that's the ball game. LOL
29 Nov 08 UTC Autumn, 1903: You supported W. Med. Bad fucking luck there...
29 Nov 08 UTC Autumn, 1903: Right.

No more filing orders at 2am on cough meds...
29 Nov 08 UTC Autumn, 1903: I told CivCube that those supply centers wouldn't do him any good without open home supply centers, but does he listen?
29 Nov 08 UTC Autumn, 1903: He could have actually defended his home supply centers instead.
29 Nov 08 UTC Autumn, 1903: Dinner, this is an open channel.
29 Nov 08 UTC Autumn, 1903: LOL
30 Nov 08 UTC Spring, 1904: No joke. I was telling everyone about CivCube.
30 Nov 08 UTC Spring, 1904: Wow your insight is so powerful, I am floored by your strategic input, thanks a lot Oerdin!
30 Nov 08 UTC Spring, 1904: Arguably, Dinner's advice would also have worked for Dinner.
30 Nov 08 UTC Spring, 1904: The Austrian empire is now using the famous Von Trapp strategy.
30 Nov 08 UTC Spring, 1904: Surely you mean the Hungarian Empire?
01 Dec 08 UTC Spring, 1904: Shit! Oerdin was in and he left without filling his orders...
08 Dec 08 UTC Autumn, 1905: BEWARE something went wrong with the server on this site and orders and messages were lost!
08 Dec 08 UTC Autumn, 1905: It's been like that all weekend. I've entered my orders about 6 times in both of my games...
09 Dec 08 UTC Autumn, 1905: Shit, something went wrong...
