Game drawn
07 Jul 14 UTC Spring, 2013: [Quebec]:Russia , Ok
07 Jul 14 UTC Spring, 2013: [Libya]:Seriously though... why not join us instead... You have 6 SCs at your pick... Alas, yTe, Yakutssk (PINK) and Sca, Stp, West Siberia, East Siberia (WHITE)...?
07 Jul 14 UTC Spring, 2013: [Libya]:Oh No... Not 6... But 7... I stand corrected... All of them via control over the arctic...
07 Jul 14 UTC Spring, 2013: [Libya]:Ghana... Please support additional hold in NE Atlantic just in case Quebec chooses to support Russia yet again... I will have my fleet from Libya to Alg to support hold in the NE Atlantic... No need to move the army... I can support move from Ngr and that would disband that idol army there... My fleet there can help us support hold... For now... additional support hold from West A Ocean may be very needed...
07 Jul 14 UTC Spring, 2013: [Libya]:But Seriously Quebec... Think about it 7 SCs... all within your reach... why support Russia yet again... Ghana is leaving us... We do not want war with you... Plus... where will you go... china and Russia are in your way after you proceed to eliminate the last few SCs that the USA has... I am sure that my bother SA will concur with me and not bother you... Ghana is leaving to go to prison camp and is helping us though his transition but we do not want war with you... Again... 7 SCs... ALL within your reach... Stop supporting Russia all the time and ask Russia to help you with something for once... 7SCs... 7
07 Jul 14 UTC Spring, 2013: [Russia]:Quebec, ignore Libya, he is just desperate to lose centers to me. He will do anything to disrupt our alliance, but just ignore him.
07 Jul 14 UTC Spring, 2013: [Russia]:Quebec, I will move Great Britain to Northeast Atlantic.
07 Jul 14 UTC Spring, 2013: [Russia]:Thank's again, let me know when you want the favour back. We control the northern countries now, let's push the africans back a bit more.
08 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 2013: [Libya]:Look... I say we draw after Ghana and the USA are out... ALL of us including Quebec has selected draw except for Russia and China... What do you say... ?
08 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 2013: [Russia]:Draw is soo booring. Rather not.
08 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 2013: [Libya]:Hey SA... do you want Gha and Gui...? You are better positioned to take those as well since the EA ocean is key for you... I will have enough to hold the Med for certain...
09 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 2013: [South-Africa]:Hi Lib -- Ok, I'll take those two. I plan on going down in
09 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 2013: [South-Africa]:..uh.. forgot what I was going to type there... but anyway please try NW Indian to NE Indian until it works...
09 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 2013: [China]:I am up for a draw after Ghana is out.
09 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 2013: [Russia]:Ok me too.
09 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 2013: [Russia]:We should be able to win this, but this map is a bit of a pain.
09 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 2013: [South-Africa]:After many hours of deep reflection and careful consideration, I would like to offer my sentiments regarding the end of this game:

11 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 2014: [China]:SA, in order to get ghana out, i am supporting sao paulo to rio de janeiro. please take Gui and ghana. libya and russia if you could make an agreement on morocco, we can draw this game after this phase is over.
11 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 2014: [Russia]:China, are you so eager to end this? Just a thought...
11 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 2014: [China]:I am eager to end it. It has lasted, in my opinion, much too long and there will be no resolution from the 5 of us fighting. We will keep on fighting and nobody will benefit unless someone stabs the other.
12 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 2014: [South-Africa]:Well, as I see it, this game hung on African togetherness. With Ghana's exodus (movement of Jah people), this map has gone to the forces of chaos.
12 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 2014: [South-Africa]:Nevertheless, it is sort of cool that eleven others couldn't hang, and so I am up for the draw.
12 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 2014: [South-Africa]:Make that twelve after Ghana leaves.
12 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 2014: [South-Africa]:But I see where the Ruskies are coming from: this has been a fun game. I think Pinky Tuscadero has seen a lot of rodeos and can tell where this is going... but I also could deal with a slug-out to the bitter end.
12 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 2014: [South-Africa]:Actually, Ruskies -- why not turn on that game-quitting pink menace? I mean, what has he ever done to for you to warrant your loyalty?!
12 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 2014: [South-Africa]:Turn! Turn! Turn! There is a season...!
12 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 2014: [Libya]:LoL... I will fight it out to the end with you SA if need be but... A Draw... That would be nice... This game has been played for too long and I don't see Russia making his advances on me as fast as he might think...?

I Vote Draw...
12 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 2014: [South-Africa]:Ok, but let's make one last try for the NE Indian... I am supporting you in.
12 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 2014: [Russia]:Hehe Libya, you have lost several countries to me last couple of turns, if it wasn't for Ghana, you would be in a much worse spot.

And SA, no, I would never stab China or Quebec. Sorry.
12 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 2014: [China]:Yeah i do not foresee anyone stabbing their alliances in this game, and i do not foresee anyone making huge advancements. russia, you havent made substantial advances in libya. you should have the med by now.
12 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 2014: [Russia]:China, yes, I was set back Libyas convoy which I failed to block. Now it looks better tho.
12 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 2014: [South-Africa]:Come on, Ruskie! Look at that smug Quebec over there, riding high on YOUR success. Hanging on like a green lamprey.
12 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 2014: [South-Africa]:All the cool kids are doing it! Stab! Stab!
12 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 2014: [Russia]:South Africa, told you already. No chance, but nice try :-)
12 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 2014: [China]:quebec, you need to take mexico.
12 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 2014: [Quebec]:OK . Where do you want to I supportyou move to Mex from ?
12 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 2014: [China]:no you move texas to monterry with support in the spring. in the fall, you take mexico.
12 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 2014: [Quebec]:OK .
12 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 2014: [South-Africa]:Every man has his price, Russia. What's yours?
12 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 2014: [South-Africa]:Come on. You really want to be allied with someone who doesn't capitalize Mexico?
12 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 2014: [South-Africa]:Abbreviating it is not much better, Quebec.
13 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 2014: [China]:it is abbreviated mex on the map SA so quebec is fine. i am to lazy to capitalize any proper nouns in writing like this. professional/academic writing i capitalize, but my points are still made without capitalizing.

libya if i was you, i would be more worried that SA asked a question by starting the question with "You." the question as it is written now is a fragment and you should not be aligned with someone who writes in fragments, libya.
13 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 2014: [South-Africa]:Hey China -- turn on Russia and Quebec!
13 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 2014: [South-Africa]:We just got off on the wrong foot during those first fourteen years...
13 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 2014: [South-Africa]:Go take a walk outside, contemplate the Super Moon, then come back and take life by the reins.
13 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 2014: [South-Africa]:What are those hangers-on Russia and Quebec to you? You just have a think about how they've been riding your coattails this whole time. Are you really going to be used like that?!
13 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 2014: [China]:you know what SA you are right. how about you and i align against libya and russia.
13 Jul 14 UTC [Russia]:I am pretty tired of this game to be honest, and I am going on vacation very soon so better draw it right away.
13 Jul 14 UTC [Libya]:Well gg
13 Jul 14 UTC [Russia]:Yes, gg. Always this case with this map, too big.
