07 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 2000: [Oz]:Good luck all! ... And my the best Ozzie win! :)
07 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 2000: [Brazil]:Let's have a good game... we'll be exporting Brazilian ladies all over the globe to help with the enjoyment.
07 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 2000: [Pacific-Russia]:whats a good move for me
07 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 2000: [Libya]:@P.R. your best bet is to do what you can to convince Russia to let you take W. Siberia. But you will only want to go there in Fall, so you aren't adjacent to two of his home centers. Work out with China who gets Korea or Japan. There you go.
07 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 2000: [Oz]:Then go where? LOL!
07 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 2000: [Pacific-Russia]:thank you people
26 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 2005: [Pacific-Russia]:china ill help u
26 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 2005: [Libya]:You sure helped him... by absorbing most of his SC's into your care!
26 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 2005: [Brazil]:With friends like that.... :)
26 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 2005: [Russia]:Ya Russia is a lieing prick
26 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 2005: [Libya]:Surely you meant Pac Russia and not you, right?
26 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 2005: [Russia]:Don't call me surely... And yes, PAC Russia
27 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 2005: [Pacific-Russia]:ok ill move out so u can reclaim everything i clearly am dead i wish to help other in my theoroes
04 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 2007: GameMaster: The Viking was banned: Multi 4.12.2011. The time until the next phase has been extended by one phase length to give an opportunity to replace the player.
Remember to finalize your orders if you don't want to wait, so the game isn't held up unnecessarily!

04 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 2007: [Brazil]:Down with the cheats, and well done to the GM for spotting him!
04 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 2007: [Libya]:Seriously. They must not have understood the value you were offering in your exports of beautiful Brazilians ladies.
04 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 2007: [Brazil]:Hah hah, that's true!
09 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Ghana]:always surprises me how many backstabbers and liars populate this game. It's actually possible to win this game without betraying alliances. smh.
09 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Brazil]:I know, it's a disgrace.
10 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Ghana]:it's just a game - but like any social interaction - it reveals ones character. Enjoy your points. I'm sure it's worth being a douche to get them.
10 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Brazil]:Ouch, what a sore loser. You failed in your diplomacy was as simple as that.
10 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Oz]:Why would that surprise you Ghana? You are right, it is just a game. It is a game precisely designed for backstabbing and lying. It takes skill and luck to forge strong alliances. And, no, it does not reveal ones character for it allows good people to get away with stuff they would never do in the real world. It's called fantasy entertainment. But when someone does get stabbed and they whine about it, that does reveal ones character. Why? Because somewhat like you said, its only points that are lost. Here is some cheese for you....(O)....should go well with your wine.
11 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Ghana]:the failure was supporting and honoring my alliances? odd perspective. I formed diplomacy with brazil and helped brazil get a foothold in North america - what can never be known is who is a liar - there is no skill involved in that other than being a liar. No strategy, no intellect. Just deception. And if you think deception is diplomacy then that is an interesting world view.
11 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Brazil]:Ok let's agree to differ. I'll wipe you out instead.
11 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Quebec]:Ghana, you seem to be missing the point of this game aren't you?
11 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Ghana]:apparently so.
11 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Ghana]:i thought it was about strategically creating alliances and working together to eliminate opposing alliances. Didn't realize it was some sort of exercise in betrayal and cognitive dissonance.
11 Dec 11 UTC Spring, 2010: [Brazil]:I was trying to cut & paste parts of the Diplomacy rulebook, but it's coming up as an image rather than text, so Ghana can I suggest you go to http://www.wizards.com/avalonhill/rules/diplomacy.pdf
This explains things such as "During diplomatic negotiations players may say anything they wish", and "Deciding whom to trust as situations arrive is an important part of the game", and "Diplomacy is a game of negotiations, alliances and promises kept and promises broken".
Being a player who always sticks to exactly what he says can be a good tactic to win - certainly backstabbing too often can be quite counter productive. But what makes this game fun is knowing you can rarely completely trust anyone. I think you need to understand that or your enjoyment of the game will be spoilt. This will be especially the case in Anonymous games, so maybe you should avoid these in the future.
The reason I backstabbed you was actually because I felt you were always telling me what you wanted me to do, and when I said what I would like to do, you refused and instead told me to attack another ally. Given your back door was wide open, I took it.
Not that I should need to explain my reasoning...
12 Dec 11 UTC Spring, 2010: [Ghana]:i understand. I would disagree as to your recollection of our relationship but I see your point. I recall supporting all of your march on North America and only refused to open EAO to you since it exposed every one of my SC's. If I recall the only thing I asked you to do was support me regaining SEA which you refused to do because you wished to stay out of "African politics" as you called it. Also, I did not know you and OZ were allies until you told me and suggested you take southern and eastern africa but it's all neither here nor there at this point.

We just have different styles I suppose and I prefer to play an honorable game. Live and learn. You certainly did slink your way into a very strong position (with a great deal of my help of course). Congratulations on a very well executed gameplan.
12 Dec 11 UTC Spring, 2010: [Brazil]:Ok cheers, i think :)
12 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 2010: [Brazil]:Good work Russia :)
18 Dec 11 UTC Spring, 2012: [Brazil]:The small powers of Russia and Quebec are part of the Brazilian commonwealth. Any attack on them will be viwed like an attack on our homeland! Peace to all...
19 Dec 11 UTC Spring, 2012: [Near-East]:Sure, I'll leave them alone.
20 Dec 11 UTC Spring, 2012: [Near-East]:Oops, I missed a turn while traveling. I'll start on Libya next turn though.
20 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 2012: [Libya]:Why me?
20 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 2012: [Near-East]:Well this is awkward...
20 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 2012: [Libya]:But you want to draw with Brazil and Kenya?
20 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 2012: [Brazil]:Miss as many turns as you like NE... no probs :).
23 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 2013: [Libya]:Good job Brazil on your solo. Shouldn't take much more than another 5 years or so.
23 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 2013: [Brazil]:Thank you
23 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 2013: [Brazil]:tell you what, takes b****y ages to do my turn with all these fleets and armies :)
23 Dec 11 UTC Spring, 2014: [Libya]:It definitely sucks to have enter moves for 30+ units, I'll grant you that.
29 Dec 11 UTC [Brazil]:Good game everyone! Hopefully over this turn.
29 Dec 11 UTC [Kenya]:How many do you still need?
30 Dec 11 UTC [Libya]:WELL DONE KENYA!
