18 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 2003: GameMaster: Sphinx was banned: multi/meta/no reply. 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!

21 Aug 14 UTC Resistance did work and we get a draw :)
21 Aug 14 UTC haha, i was going to withdraw my draw vote after this phase :), but yes well played, and actually nice job spain seeing that
21 Aug 14 UTC Oh - so killing off Ukraine was all it took, huh?
21 Aug 14 UTC 5 lousy points! What, Italy is not worth 8 more points?
21 Aug 14 UTC gg
21 Aug 14 UTC I don't see a way I could make progress against Italy Ukraine and if I let Egypt take all of Italy he would solo.
21 Aug 14 UTC More likely that I could eliminate Germany than Italy at this point, but again, not before Egypt would get to 33
21 Aug 14 UTC I'm surprised Egypt took the draw. Path was clear into central Europe.
21 Aug 14 UTC well if i hadn't put the draw up initially the board wouldn't have rallied against spain (since they would likely think i'd prefer points to a draw); taking it down would likely cause germany and italy to consider throwing the game to spain (in the hopes i would come back to the draw).

that's why i covered serbia for italy and was planning on taking the draw down this turn (giving me one more turn of a friendly italy), i think spain must have accepted immediately after the process otherwise we would still be playing.
21 Aug 14 UTC in hindsight i should have let ukraine retreat to serbia and hoped italy just thought i was sloppy and hopefully spain would have played one more turn
