20 Jun 13 UTC Autumn, 2008: [South-Africa]:If morals count, I morally want to rise from the dead.
21 Jun 13 UTC Autumn, 2008: [Argentina]:I would take all the moral support I can get.
21 Jun 13 UTC Autumn, 2008: [India]:Ive been wondering for a while. What is the deal with kenya and ghana?
21 Jun 13 UTC Autumn, 2008: [Near-East]:I have been wondering that myself.
21 Jun 13 UTC Autumn, 2008: [India]:Yes! Im here to stay for a little while longer!
22 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 2009: [Kenya]:I'm aware that it looks like it's a multi account, but it is not. While this may not make sense to a good diplomacy player, these are my reasons. 1, he was my ally at the start to mop up s africa and libya in addition to libya being stronger than him. 2, i chose to keep him in the game because i did not want to be the number 1 target by being the largest power. 3, he has been loyal to me and vice versa. 3.5, less units for me to worry about, im lazy
22 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 2009: [USA]:As an Argentinian, I can't understand how they decided that Mendoza is not an SCs.
I MEAN, THEY HAVE ALL THE WINE THERE!
22 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 2009: [Europe]:As someone who's traveled to Mendoza, I agree... however the Spaniards must also be somewhat surprised by their lack of center as well, and they produce even more wine!
23 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 2009: [Near-East]:As an Italian, I am happy that the world's second largest producer of wine is considered important enough to be a SC. France the world's largest is also a SC.

24 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 2009: [USA]:Argentina is sixth? Seriously? Behind of CHINA? You have to be kidding me.
25 Jun 13 UTC Autumn, 2009: GameMaster: 103166 Slav Yolov was banned: violating gunboat rules/multi. 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!
26 Jun 13 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Ghana]:Seriously, some players think I am a multi? They don't recognize integrity when they see it? Wow, they have become jaded. I happen to believe that an ally is an ally until declaring, in advance of a move against, that the alliance is over. I actually believe that is a better way to play this game and, over time, I will do better than if I did not play that way. Others, with better tactical abilities than me, perhaps do not have to play like that.
26 Jun 13 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Ghana]:BTW, I would point out that I joined in April, and play only a few games at a time, but now have 131 points. That is probably nothing like the success most of you have had, but I am pleased with it.
26 Jun 13 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Near-East]:I do not believe you are a multi. The same arguments can be made of Europe and I, but we are in an alliance ourselves.
27 Jun 13 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Europe]:I don't think you're a multi either, though I think always declaring intentions ahead of time misses part of the point of the game. For example I don't think you should have warned me... but I'll take it.
27 Jun 13 UTC Autumn, 2009: [USA]:How many days you guys have played this game? Someone is here from the beggining?
27 Jun 13 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Near-East]:We have been playing the game since April 22nd. So we are over 2 months now.
28 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 2010: [Argentina]:Orders up!
01 Jul 13 UTC Autumn, 2010: [Ghana]:Shall we finish off the abandoned players and declare a draw?
01 Jul 13 UTC Spring, 2011: [Oz]:To be clear, are you suggesting a global truce with all players currently remaining?
01 Jul 13 UTC Spring, 2011: [Argentina]:I would be happy with a five-way draw.
01 Jul 13 UTC Spring, 2011: [Argentina]:...but look forward to turning all those yellow SCs RED. Not to mention the two remaining SCs in Antarctica.
01 Jul 13 UTC Spring, 2011: [Ghana]:Right, eliminate W Canada & Kenya, then draw if someone (like you or NE) have not already won outright.
01 Jul 13 UTC Spring, 2011: [Near-East]:I actually am going to be leaving in the upcoming days here, so I would actually like a pause vote if everyone is cool with that.
02 Jul 13 UTC Autumn, 2011: [Europe]:i suggest everyone else click unpause immediately after the game pauses so we don't get held up. Also, let's get this move done first?
02 Jul 13 UTC Autumn, 2011: [Near-East]:As soon as I come back I will unpause.
03 Jul 13 UTC Autumn, 2011: [Near-East]:Argentina and Ghana can you guys please click pause?
03 Jul 13 UTC Autumn, 2011: [Argentina]:I never vote for a pause. Just look at all the games that never get started again. If the site has a time limit on the pause, it would be OK.

Seems like everyone else is satisfied with the draw at this point. I recommend you vote draw and end this now if you are concerned that you will CD over the next few days. Or maybe you just want to go for a solo. Vote draw and let's all move on to other games.
03 Jul 13 UTC Autumn, 2011: [Europe]:if i let my retreat move take a day will that help? how long do you need?
03 Jul 13 UTC Autumn, 2011: [Argentina]:Let's play on! Where is Near-East going that he can't put in a move every 36 hours. I've used my IPhone to put in moves while traveling. Never missed a turn.
03 Jul 13 UTC Autumn, 2011: [Ghana]:If NE would put a draw vote in, wouldn't this be over?
04 Jul 13 UTC Autumn, 2011: [Argentina]:N-E does not want to draw because he thanks he as a chance at a solo.
04 Jul 13 UTC Autumn, 2011: [Europe]:using a smartphone while traveling is often prohibitively expensive. I calculated that when I traveled to India it would have cost me $30 per day just to receive email (not even using browser), so it is certainly possible to be somewhere that makes internet not easily accessible.
04 Jul 13 UTC Autumn, 2011: [Near-East]:I dont have an IPhone Argentina. I do not succumb to unnecessary luxuries like you. I am in Pittsburgh where I do not have internet accessibility. I am currently in a Panera checking my orders here because people like you cannot pause. We have 5 people in the game. The game will start back up again once everyone unpauses. If you also think that I cant solo, then why dont you pause and stop me fairly rather than hoping I dont make my orders.
04 Jul 13 UTC Autumn, 2011: [Near-East]:I do appreciate everything Europe is doing for me though to help me while I cannot make my orders. I should be able to get on once every 36 hours, but there is a chance I cannot. hopefully when I cant it will be a retreat or build order.
04 Jul 13 UTC Autumn, 2011: [Argentina]:Thanks for sticking with the game N-E. I appreciate your sacrifices to keep the game going. I am sure there are other hot-spots in Pittsburgh for you to connect one every 36 hours. BTW, why not just DRAW?
04 Jul 13 UTC Autumn, 2011: [Argentina]:Not a bad outcome, bet 5 get 30 for the draw. I am sure Ghana, Europe, and Oz would all appreciate that. VOTE DRAW.
05 Jul 13 UTC Autumn, 2011: [Ghana]:Guess this is NE's way of saying he thinks he can win it all.
05 Jul 13 UTC Autumn, 2011: [Argentina]:Stay strong brother.
05 Jul 13 UTC Autumn, 2011: [Ghana]:NP. I'd probably do the same thing if I were him. Or you. Let's see if I can change his mind.
08 Jul 13 UTC Autumn, 2012: [Ghana]:Forgot about you guys. Sorry. Life gets very "full" sometimes, doesn't it.
09 Jul 13 UTC Autumn, 2012: [USA]:This is like the weirdst map ever.
Argentina controls every country on Southamerica, a big part of Antartica and the Atlantic coasts on Northamerica, including the totallity of USA (except California) and french-Canada
Canada losed a big part of it territories because of Europeans and Argentinians, BUT WAIT, they've conquered México and California.
Europe is now a nation and controls the north of Canada.
Arabian countries have taken Asia. The entire Asia. And East Africa.
The rest of Africa is now Ghana.
The last resistance of Kenyan soldiers is in Antartica.
10 Jul 13 UTC Autumn, 2012: [Near-East]:Its fun huh?
11 Jul 13 UTC Spring, 2013: [USA]:Pretty much
24 Jul 13 UTC Autumn, 2015: [Ghana]:My apologies to the entire group still playing for missing at least 3 turns. I will not bore you with excuses. It really messes up game play when a player acts as I have; I know that and am embarrassed by my lack of attention to the otherwise good and challenging game. I am sorry.
26 Jul 13 UTC Spring, 2016: [Near-East]:does anyone else notice argentina taking all your SCs but me?
26 Jul 13 UTC [Ghana]:I see u with 37 and him with 26.
26 Jul 13 UTC [Argentina]:Hey N-E, you seem to be the one taking SCs.
26 Jul 13 UTC [Near-East]:you took yukon from europe.
28 Jul 13 UTC [Oz]:Wow, it's over. I don't know what to do with my life anymore.
