13 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: Man, Turkey...what did you DO? Juggernaut took his ball and went home?
13 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: But wait until I'm dead right?
13 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: Yes
14 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: So, two days until Russia misses the retreat phase huh? Why the hell did the random sonofabitch decide to come back and play the last retreat phase if he was just going to miss the autumn round?
14 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: Yeah, a draw is most likely the only option. Without Russian pressure the map is a bit unbalanced
14 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: Doesn't make sense to continue without Russia.
15 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: Yes, without Russia it's unbalanced. Shall we go for a draw? Do we need Russia to vote for that?
15 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: I think just majority? I'll vote, we can see what happens with 4 or so
15 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: So we are voting for a draw?
15 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: Would you prefer to play on?
15 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: Nah
15 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: I think we will have to wait for Russia to go into civil disorder, which should be this round now.
15 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: If we each get one claim to Russian land, then I say we can go on!
15 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: There's 6 purples, so it'll be even. I get first choice because I'm Italian. I'll take Vienna. Who's next?
15 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: Right now the Russian troops are more of a roadblock than anything else. Germany is the only country in position to take a supply centre next round, unless he could be persuaded to pressure Italy instead.
16 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: Shhhhhhhhhhh
16 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: Is there a Star Wars Diplomacy? I would love to play a Game of Thrones version.
16 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: Oh my! http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/829950/game-of-thrones-diplomacy-variant
16 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: Lets organise another game. Im a bit disappointed though, I'd finally set up a decent defensive position and thought I was looking okay going forward. Fuck a horse.
18 May 14 UTC Spring, 1904: Sigh. Russia is gone, but we are still playing this game. Why they he'll didn't Germany vote to draw?
18 May 14 UTC Spring, 1904: Maybe Germany want to defeat you first and increase their share of the points?
18 May 14 UTC Spring, 1904: Just because the Russians are practicing passive resistance I don't feel the game should end.
19 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: A decisive round for Turkey that time. I can only imagine that Germany has idiotically pledged to support them into Budapest next round.
19 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: I didn't see Austria do itself any favors that last turn despite having a chance to. Hell, I'll support Turkey into Budapest next round.
19 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: And there was so much time between rounds I forgot how fat of a liar Turkey is
19 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: Yeah. Never forget that. I'm sure he'll take you up on your offer of being helped into Budapest. This game may have spoiled me on Diplomacy. I actually enjoyed scrambling for my life the first few rounds, but after the clear leader gives up on the game, what use is there to stay in it when you're Europe's whipping boy?
19 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: Wait who was the clear leader? I don't think Russia was ever the clear leader. Also don't take it too hard, Austria is the worst country to start with.
19 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: *ahem*
19 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: Yeah. It is the worst country to start with. Italy doesn't face the threat of being eliminated this round. But, England, I suppose you're correct. Now that Russia is gone the clear leader is Turkey. Followed closely by the French & German alliance.
19 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: Italy is green for a reason...makes me green in the gills when I get it. Nobody ever wants to be friends with Italy. The countryside is just too nice to not overtake
19 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: Just wait 'till I stop driving my tanks into my boats. Then it's all gonna go off.
19 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: I laughed very hard at that last comment France.
21 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: Hey guys. Had a terrible time this game. Hope France skull fucks your mothers and wins the game. Enjoy the next few years! :-)
21 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: Diplomacy isn't front for armchair psychotherapy by the way.
21 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: Much cheaper though.
21 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: Personally, I hope you keep a running commentary going for the rest of the game. Please keep dropping in and busting out wild speculation. If you are interested there is a diplomatic residence no one is using in the deep south east of Sevastopol you are welcome to use until the end of the war.
21 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: Hey, yeah. Most definitely! I seem to be more into this game than some of the participants!
21 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: I'll keep that monument up in Apulia for as long as I can, in honor of Austria's unwavering commitment in the face of apathy
21 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: Thanks. I enjoy the pasta. Here's my first bit of advice: France and England, take down your draw votes. This game still has a long way to go.
21 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: I'll take it down when France takes it down. We are in direct competition with everything.
21 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: This slow death of Austria is almost too gruesome to watch...yet I still can't turn away
21 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: I took it down. I'm not afraid of showing a little humility.
23 May 14 UTC Spring, 1905: England still wants a draw. Show him no mercy France!
23 May 14 UTC Spring, 1905: I see that Russia destroyed his Ukraine army unit That must have been tough for him I know how hard he worked to keep it there I'm glad he's soldiering on and continuing to put up a fight !!
23 May 14 UTC Spring, 1905: http://webdiplomacy.net/forum.php?threadID=1136979#1136979
23 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: We now see that Turkey is in the "cut off its nose to spite its face" phase of the game
24 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: Is that from Shakespeare?
24 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: Italians don't read
27 May 14 UTC Spring, 1907: Now Germany votes for the draw? Haha. That's funny.
28 May 14 UTC Anyone interested in another game? Maybe a variant?
