29 Jun 14 UTC Autumn, 1901: And I'm not too sure about that juggernaut thing...
29 Jun 14 UTC Autumn, 1901: there's a new france. nice to meet you all.
09 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 1902: Hi everyone. New player joining. A few problems in England. i'll try my best
09 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 1902: Having Germans on English soil is certainly a problem.
22 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: Lol
22 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: New France again
22 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: Welcome France!
22 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: I'm expected to lose next Autumn well damn
01 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: Just because you will acknowledge the elephant in the room does not mean that there is not an elephant in the room - ca pice?
01 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: Shou'd have said "Just because you do NOT acknowledge. .."
13 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: Is something wrong with the game system?
13 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: Why does England not have a build? Am I missing something?
13 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: The have 2 SCs (Liverpool and Edinburg) and 2 units (Wales, and Edinburg), so that sounds about right, no?
13 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: I'm sorry it was France. France has two Supply Centers (Brest and London) and has no build. Game shows him as having two units. Am I just blind this morning or is this a glitch?
13 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: Nevermind. I shouldn't look at the board before my second cup of coffee...
13 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: I feel that way about most things in life.
13 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1906: same here. I just happened to have had my coffee before answering your question...
13 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1906: Hahahaha!
13 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1906: Is there an age or maturity level required to play this game? If not, maybe it should be considered...
14 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1906: Huh? Is someone acting childish? Is it me? I mean, I lie when playing this game, but my assumption was that everyone else does it...
14 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1906: No, not you Buzzle...
14 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1906: Good, I am glad to hear that. But I am sorry for your misfortune. I have had that same misfortune several times in the past. I personally think that 35 should be the minimum age to play this game. Ok, maybe 30. Anyone younger than that just is not usually mature enough to deal with winning or losing with grace.
14 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1906: Well, then, I'm glad I just turned 35...
14 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1906: I like dealing with the diverse personalities that you encounter, that's the fun part. I usually find playing with players who have little or no experience to be frustrating as most can't seem to grasp the concepts of what this game is truly about...
Just one guys opinion
14 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1906: Too short sighted, too reactionary, too can't forget every little thing...All the while the game passes them (and you occasionally) by...
14 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1906: The great Red Horde is almost on top of us...Flee! Save yourselves...
14 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1906: Mwahahaha!!!!
14 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1906: Nice evil laugh!
14 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1906: Thanks, I practice...
26 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: I have never played with another player who seemed to have so little grasp on reality or the nuances of this game we call Diplomacy...
Good-bye and good riddance...
26 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: Wonder who he was referring to...
26 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: Me? You?
My best guess is England, but I could be wrong as my grasp on reality is somewhat limited...
26 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: It's England, good game all.

France and Germany could of succeeded in stalling you guys for longer but England was un cooperative.
26 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: Hey buddy. Don't blame me, remember that I joined the game in 1903 so I was already on the back foot. Russia played a good game, don't just blame me you idiot!!
27 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: Indeed Russia played a good game. Everyone has the right to play as they see fit. However deliberately spiking a game because you don't get your way, for me, takes away from my enjoyment of the game.
27 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: And good game all. Just because you did not win doesn't mean you played a bad game...
27 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: Turkey was especially brutal, tough sledding down there, eh Italy?
27 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: I have to agree with Germany. Besides, 4 years (8 Diplomacy phases) should have given you time to come to some sort of cohesive plan. Germany played very well until I was able to focus just on him and he received no back up. England kept trying to plot with me against Germany, but when I never made a single move to actually assist him, I was stunned by his seeming reluctance to join with Germany against me. Just my view, but still...
27 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: Having been introduced to Diplomacy at an early age and before it was played online, I really am starting to like this variant. If you have had an unsatisfactory experience with another players style (or lack of) then you don't join games they are signed up for, or if they join a game you are currently waiting to stop, you can drop out. Nifty...
27 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: Should be "if they join a game you are currently waiting to START"...
03 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1908: Please 4 way draw?
03 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1908: It appears that they are committed to stomping us out and splitting 17 centers each France...
03 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1908: Not much we can do
03 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1908: But I will ask to be allowed to retire with a unit left on the board...
03 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1908: I am fine with that request, Germany. France can have the same deal as far as I am concerned.
03 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1908: New to this website and game adjudication. How do we go about that?
That would be a vote for YES on that...
03 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1908: And thank you Russia for the that gracious gesture...
04 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1908: Thank you Russia.
04 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 1909: There is no button on the votes menu that says 'Mercy!'
05 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 1909: Haha, yeah I wish that were true
