01 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 1901: Goodluck All

The Russian embassy is open :)
01 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 1901: Good luck.
16 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: It looks like Russian embassy will be closed soon :)
16 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: lol it is changing to a corner shop
27 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 1905: If Turkey continues to miss turns but doesn't leave the game, we should call a draw.
27 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 1905: I agree. Playing this game is too slow to me.
31 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: Hey turkey is back! Although this may be bad news for some and good for others, i look forward to having a good game. GLHF everyone
31 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: Hey turkey is back! Although this may be bad news for some and good for others, i look forward to having a good game. GLHF everyone
04 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: Patriota! For someone who was finding this game too slow, you are not playing very fast. Click Ready when you are.
05 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: OK, I will.
19 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1907: alright so what was it that you wanted?
(ur requests for my moves)
20 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1907: GameMaster: $hort was banned: 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!
20 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1907: Good to see that Big Brother is watching over us.
21 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1907: Hi guys!
I overtook Turkey adding 13 tokens to the pot.
cheers!
21 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1907: Why is Turkey player replaced?
21 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1907: The previous player was cheating by using more than one account, it seems.
21 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1907: In this or other games?
21 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1907: Could have been this one, we do not know.
21 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1907: That is stupid, if someone have multiple accounts than the game should not be procceded any futher. What is the point of changing players. Now I have to renegotiate situation and that is second time in game.
21 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1907: Don't look at the mods, they did what they had to do. The problem lies with the people that cheat.
21 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1907: OK, someone cheated, why are we playing game any further? What is the point? Someone who cheated is in better position. I have problem negotiating with 3 Turkey players. You do not have the same problem, are you? You do not have that consern. I vote to cancel this game. How about you?
21 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1907: "Reconsider your alliances."
22 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1907: Austria: having people coming in and out is unfortunately part of the open multi-player games. I am not a big fan either but that's the only way we can keep the game going... unless you do a private game with 6 of your friends, it's always a risk.

My policy for canceling a game is either:
-2 or more people that leave and no one replaces them (giving a clear advantage to one or more players); or
-there are clear signs of meta-gaming/cheating.

Therefore, in this case I would vote against a cancellation of the game but if there is concensus amongst the other players, I'll do it...
23 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1907: I will no p;any any further this game, so there are empty SC for everyone
23 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1907: i will no play any further*
08 May 14 UTC Spring, 1909: Italy, are you sacrificing yourself to let England win?
Your moves have no strategic sense from your point of view...
09 May 14 UTC Spring, 1909: Italy is my ally and I have entered Tunis (at his request) in an effort to stop the Turkish invasion which is plaguing Europe. I have no intent of occupying this territory.
13 May 14 UTC First class demagogy, Machiavelli. If you are really so peacefull lover - please announce a draw game. I'm ready to do this although I'll get less points than I have now. As a sign of my good will I'm doing it first. But honestly... I bet you won't do that.
13 May 14 UTC Haha, glad you like it and glad to see that you will sacrifice your points to call a draw, but I do not see why, there is currently no stalemate that stops the game from going forward. There is still a lot of game to be played.
14 May 14 UTC This game is not interesting, I think it is fair to cll it draw and play another one. We can create new game and see in fair game who is better player.
14 May 14 UTC What do you say? It is a challenge.
14 May 14 UTC Diplomat Dan? Prince Damiani Machiavelli?
14 May 14 UTC I'd love to go for another game with the same crowd, but it's perfectly understandable that our Machiavelli would not want to give up his victory here. I would, seeing my situation, obviously support a draw.
14 May 14 UTC Come on Prince, be a gentlmen and give us chance for a draw, then we can play another fair game :) Are you interested?
14 May 14 UTC The people have spoken! Draw it is... no fun if people stop trying anyways. Let me know the name of the game and I'll join you.
14 May 14 UTC I see two more SC for England and thre will be a stalemate assuming that Italy is not going to give his SC fo Machiavelli for free
14 May 14 UTC I assume it is a success :)
14 May 14 UTC thx for the game
16 May 14 UTC So I guess no new game eh!?
16 May 14 UTC Set up new game, and let us know the name. Set up phase 1 day or more:)
18 May 14 UTC Sherby-2 pasword letthebestmanwin
19 May 14 UTC I created the game, so if you are willing to play join.
