04 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 1901: Bonjour, c'est magnifique !!!
bon chance
05 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 1901: Do we start "running a book" on whether Italy and Germany put in orders or not ?
05 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 1901: If they both started CD it would give a perhaps unfair advantage to Russia England Austria and France, with Turkey neing disadvantaged.

It may not happen, i hope not, I don't mind seeing unusual or silly moves,
but i do like to see all countries have their units at least "jump out of the starting gates"
even if it's in an unexpected directions
05 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 1901: err that should read turkey being disadvantaged
05 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 1901: to be honest, disadvantage or no, i would vote for a draw if they both CD. but there is plenty of time yet
05 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 1901: i expect at least one of them to get orders in & possibly both, there's still quite a bit of time
I do not know that i would be as noble as you & vote for a draw
i am coming to the view that on this site in "open" low points games,
random CD's & NMR's are a commonplace event, players suddenly leaving,
even when the country they are playing is doing very well ( as well as those getting smashed ) & new players buy in.
I have recently played in a game that had 10 players, 3 countries were
given up- germany, turkey & france at various stages
and after a move or two in CD a new player "bought in"
they all got eliminated from the game, but i did appreciate their contribution
as it lifted a meagre pot of 70 points well past 100
21 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 1906: So will you just enter holds now?
30 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 1909: I am too bored of this game so either we draw or I'll CD...
30 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 1909: That's OK, you can just do what I did for a few moves whilst I was bored with this game
& promptly enter hold orders, I tried to "accomodate" your advance west & not be responsible for any undue delays with moves.

Now that I have completed a Scandalous & Promiscuous Solo win in another game
& the "dynamics" of this game have changed, I have been a little more active in last 3 moves....
.......so, you have a "little rest" if you like, unless the other players show an interest in a Draw, I intend to have France play on....
01 Jul 12 UTC Spring, 1909: Yeah nah Im not drawing. Dont get too cocky there france
03 Jul 12 UTC Autumn, 1909: i won't need to consider a draw, I'll be out of the game very soon
well played England
