24 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: I totally agree
09 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1904: Ok, so the only way to guarantee Venice is if both Tyrol and Budapest attack Trieste. This guards against Trieste supporting Venice and vienna attacking Tyrol - Austrian plan A is their priority is holding Venice. This would leave Budapest in place, and Budapest must be a higher priority for Austria than Venice.

So I can't see a situation in which either Vienna or Trieste don't support Rumania into Budapest; so Tyrol attacking trieste should get Venice back. There's a good chance that Ukraine will move to Galicia or Rumania.

My main concern is not losing Warsaw, per se - this is not likely, pretty much can only happen next spring and can be retaken soon after - it's that until I can advance south from Warsaw and Moscow I have no choice but to sit in the corner - even if I take another territory with my Balkan army, I will not directly benefit as I will always be occupying my home supply centres. So all the hammer work will be done by France and Italy and my job will be to be the anvil - not much fun.

What aboutbudapest attacks trieste - Italy takes Venice. Assuming Trieste supports hold in Venice, then Vienna should support Rumanian attack on Budapest, so this support can be broken by Tyrol moving to Vienna.

Just got back from dog walk - with some trepidation, Budapest will attack Trieste.

Oh well - looks like it will be Julius Caesar - Act 3 Scene 1

Alternatively there's always Deuteronomy 25.1 - (and yes it really does say that)
10 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1904: We need to talk. Been a little busy but will discuss with you next plan of action
10 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1904: because Russia you are a naughty naughty country
10 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1904: Well at least it took 4 of you to bring me down
10 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1904: Good point - well made !! ;-)
10 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1904: Well now at least you'll be able to focus on your Carthaginian campaign.
12 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1904: I hate to ask - but is anyone able to nudge our German colleague? I suspect he doesnt suspect that he has any further role so maybe isnt checking the game but i suspect he needs to actually disband the one remaining army before we can move on.
12 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1904: There's a huge amount of subliminal suspicion in my last post!! - I wonder whether I'm paranoid ;-)
12 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1904: Yawn
12 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 1905: Germany now kaput after slight technical glitch
13 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 1905: Bless you sir - and see you again in the next life ;-)
13 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 1905: Auf Wiedersehen Pet. Chaps, I have a slight problem as I'm away until Friday and I'd be grateful if one of you could hold off posting your next move until much closer to the deadline. That way the next move won't have expired before I'm back in the evening. I'll try this vote for a pause button, but I'm unsure how & if it works. Laters.
16 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1905: It appears that the move will automatically trigger this afternoon as the dashboard is still showing that we havent all voted for the pause

16 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1905: Does anyone know what's going on?
17 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1905: It's possible that everyone setting status to 'ready' will prompt next turn. Otherwise it may be that we have to wait 3 days to unpause.

But if anyone actually knows what the current game status is, please shout.
17 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1905: Dear All, I have tried to 'unpause' my turn, but it doesn't seem to recognise this, although it didn't pause when I tried either so not exactly a win/win situation. I'll now take my move and try to recover from the damage that was done whilst I wasn't there to fight my corner. Very sporting I'm sure!
17 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1905: Hi Italy - I don't think anything has happened since you've been away - we seem to be slightly frozen in a pause / unpause time vortex.
17 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1905: Sorry all - i've been a bit busy for past 24 hours - but i appear to have unblocked things!
20 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 1906: Well Gentlemen - it seems we still have a game to play ....... :-)
27 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1907: alas I am ruined, my men are revolting at the gates demanding a French or Russian ruler... I am overrun on all fronts... I want to commit suicide and die a tyrant rather than be killed but unfortunately there is no option to do this!
30 Mar 12 UTC Gentlemen - it has been a pleasure knowing you!! Once more unto the breach...:-) ?? - but this time let's make sure that the English turn up
