1 excused missed turn
Game drawn
21 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 2008: [Argentina]:yes argentina would be libya that makes sense
24 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 2008: [Ghana]:It seems the end is nigh for Ghana.
25 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 2008: [Near-East]:I don't understand why some people play Diplomacy and then never talk to you. Even if your ally has stabbed you I still send them messages to try and talk things through - I don't understand why people don't bother to respond.
25 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 2008: [Ghana]:Cuz sometimes people dont get to check Diplomacy every day. I miss turns cuz of other outside stuff a lot of the time.
25 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 2008: [South-Africa]:Only the power with the lowest number of units doesn't have to retreat any of his units after this turn.Has somebody noticed that?
The funniest turn ever!
02 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 2010: [Argentina]:oh well told ghana not to trust south africa
12 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 2012: [Near-East]:Come on guys, let's 5 way draw this.
12 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 2012: [Argentina]:no
12 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 2012: [Near-East]:Because you want to solo.
12 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 2012: [Near-East]:You are the only one who can and you know it.
12 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 2012: [Argentina]:which is why i just gave pac russia British columbia
12 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 2012: [Argentina]:there is no way i can solo against China and pac russia
12 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 2012: [Near-East]:Then what's the point to drag this out? A draw is a draw whether it is 3 or 5 people. It will take you a long time to eliminate both me and South Africa. Argentina will take all of West Africa.
12 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 2012: [Argentina]:I'll be around anyway, and unlike some on the board my allies know i am trustworthy.
12 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 2012: [Near-East]:I was always trustworthy - it was China and Pac-Russia who stabbed me.
12 Dec 11 UTC Spring, 2013: [Pacific-Russia]:We had agreed I'd get Germany, you took it for yourself...
12 Dec 11 UTC Spring, 2013: [Near-East]:Because you broke our DMZ agreements by building armies and sending them towards me.
16 Dec 11 UTC Spring, 2014: [South-Africa]:China - Why do you submit your orders 2 minutes after Argentina every time?
And you wouldn't be against but you don't know what Argentina think? Hmmm,interesting.
Too bad I don't know how to contact the mods.
16 Dec 11 UTC Spring, 2014: [Argentina]:we are obviously multis please report us
16 Dec 11 UTC Spring, 2014: [Argentina]:webdipmod@gmail.com

lets not even discuss that I saw China finalized last night and I didnt even put my orders in until an hour ago
17 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 2014: [Near-East]:I don't suspect anything between China and Argentina.

It sucks what they're doing, reducing a draw from 5 to 3 is just petty, but to throw around cheating accusations because of it is petty as well.
17 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 2014: [China]:Isn't every 3 way tie a 5 way tie at some point?
17 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 2014: [USA]:A draw is only supposed to happen when it's clear that the game can't be won by one person. This happens frequently in World games because stalemate lines are so easy to set up. Nothing in the rules that says a game should end in a draw, and certainly nothing that says the draw should have five people in it.
17 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 2014: [Argentina]:Let me know when the mods get back to you SA.
18 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 2014: [South-Africa]:Ok,I will.
21 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 2015: [Argentina]:they get back to you yet?
22 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 2015: [South-Africa]:No,still nothing.Wrong adress maybe?!?
01 Jan 12 UTC Spring, 2018: [Pacific-Russia]:Argentina is about to CD, so I'm attacking it. If he returns I will of course give back everything I took.
02 Jan 12 UTC Spring, 2018: [Argentina]:am I?
02 Jan 12 UTC Spring, 2018: [Pacific-Russia]:Sorry, yes you were. I will of course retreat now.
02 Jan 12 UTC Autumn, 2018: [South-Africa]:It'll be interesting to see who was such brave to take over Near-East.Oh (wo)man,what you were thinking of?!?
02 Jan 12 UTC Autumn, 2018: [Argentina]:hear back from the mods yet?
02 Jan 12 UTC Autumn, 2018: [Argentina]:I want to apologize to everyone for the NMRs, I had a very busy week and kept putting the moves off.
02 Jan 12 UTC Autumn, 2018: [Near-East]:This game is so sad.
02 Jan 12 UTC Autumn, 2018: [Argentina]:usually is for the loser
03 Jan 12 UTC Autumn, 2018: [USA]:@Pac-Russia: There's nothing that says you have to retreat... in fact, you're in a pretty good position to clean Argentina's clock in North America and go for either a two-way draw with China or an outright win. The various factions of the American Liberation Army offer you their full support!
03 Jan 12 UTC Autumn, 2018: [Argentina]:yes, because a two way draw happens in this game... I believe what you are trying to say is in a good position to divert my troops from South Africa and force a 4-way tie.
03 Jan 12 UTC Autumn, 2018: [Pacific-Russia]:Damb, thought I'd be able to come on earlier... I hope my disband in NWA shows my good intentions...
03 Jan 12 UTC Autumn, 2018: [Argentina]:screwed my moves for the second turn in a row
03 Jan 12 UTC Autumn, 2018: [Argentina]:that was really bad, we needed morocco
03 Jan 12 UTC Autumn, 2018: [China]:We can just force our way in...
03 Jan 12 UTC Autumn, 2018: [Argentina]:ha whoops thought that was private. Hey Mom
05 Jan 12 UTC Spring, 2019: [South-Africa]:Three powers with 23 SC-s each fight all together against a little power with 16 units,
69 vs. 16,are you just a little bit ashamed maybe? As many enemies as honour.
I would go into civil disorder if I were China,Argentina or P.Russia,haven't seen such a bad strategy for a long time...
06 Jan 12 UTC Autumn, 2019: [Argentina]:NMRs baby, NMRs, the fact you are still around is literally a christmas miracle.

Have the mods got back to you yet?
11 Jan 12 UTC [Pacific-Russia]:Not again...
11 Jan 12 UTC [South-Africa]:Draw the game man.How you have the nerve to play another couple of months for a couple of points more. Are you such desperate?
11 Jan 12 UTC [Pacific-Russia]:I'm not...
11 Jan 12 UTC [China]:I am... but...
11 Jan 12 UTC [China]:Good game, everyone.
11 Jan 12 UTC [Pacific-Russia]:GG. Well done SA.
