24 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 1901: The Ottoman Empire forever!
24 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 1901: The Ottoman Empire forever!
25 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 1901: It is a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma.
25 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 1901: Physical board is up in the TI area.
25 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 1901: Note at the bottom that all times are UTC-5 so I guess we need everything ready for our turns tomorrow...
26 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 1901: As I read the site, the deadline is 2 PM Saturday. But I am curious how the whole thing works. I would guess that as soon as all orders are submitted, the next turn will begin.
26 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 1901: As soon as all the orders are 'Ready' then we automatically proceed. Yes.
26 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 1901: It would be nice if for the smaller things (builds, disbandments, retreats) we stuck to a faster pace than every three days.
26 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 1901: The secret of politics? Make a good treaty with Russia. - Otto von Bismarck
27 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 1901: I thought it was "Speak softly and carry a big stick." - Teddy Roosevelt
27 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 1901: Thanks to the people of England for staying late at work to help with the Liffe->ICE move. In gratitude the magnanimous Sultan of the Ottoman Empire will not attack your country for two whole turns.
27 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 1901: So, it looks like all turns are submitted, but that the game has not triggered yet. I guess it waits until all the time is gone regardless.
27 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 1901: I think it'll move along immediately if everybody marks their orders 'ready'. If you just save them, I think it'll apply them when time runs out.
27 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 1901: I agree. That seems to be the implication of the FAQ, though it's not totally explicit.
27 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 1901: Yeah, it looks like the green check mark means "Ready" and the grey check mark means "Saved".
28 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1901: The game is afoot!
30 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1901: It looks like everyone is "ready" but we are still waiting for the turn timer.
30 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1901: Black checkbox = saved, Green checkbox = ready.
30 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1901: I see that now. I guess Turkey and I are the only ones ready then.
30 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1901: I see that now. I guess Turkey and I are the only ones ready then.
30 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1901: It looks like if you refresh the page it will resend your last message. I will test.
30 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1901: It looks like if you refresh the page it will resend your last message. I will test.
30 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1901: yup
30 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1901: Clearly Turkey and Italy are confident in their alliances.
30 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1901: I am confident in my forces.
30 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1901: Yet some find it hard to differentiate Turkey and Chicken...
30 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1901: Or Munich from Marseilles, seemingly.
01 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1901: One year in, and only two open supply centers remain: Sweden and Spain. Hard to see how to keep the French out of Spain though. Sweden is another story. With three countries knocking on the door, that could stay empty for a while.
06 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1902: All Quiet on the Western Front, a novel by Chris Reed.
06 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1902: Working in the fantasy genre, are we?
07 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1902: Brave Sweden is still an independent state.
07 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1902: I think this phase only requires entry from Chris Read, since he has to handle a dislodgement. Then the build phase should be relatively simple: Peter and Adam each get a build, and Austria must disband. Perhaps people could do those entries relatively quickly and mark them as finalized?
07 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1902: Austria will certainly require a full three days for disbandment.
08 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1902: Arnold does look like he would take time to deflate.
08 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1902: It's strange. We seem to be waiting for the one person to move that has not logged in, to submit orders I think he will have no choice about. He is being dislodged, but there is nowhere to move to, so he will be force to disband the unit. Curious.
08 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1902: It sounds like an opportunity to learn php.
11 Oct 14 UTC Spring, 1903: England still happy about the fleet in St. Petersburg?
12 Oct 14 UTC Spring, 1903: Another turn and France enters no moves. Germany ready to claim winner yet?
12 Oct 14 UTC Spring, 1903: It certainly appears to be Germany v the World at this point. France has been routed. England looks vulnerable, to say the least. And a huge Eastern European war looms between Russia and Germany.
12 Oct 14 UTC Spring, 1903: In the meantime, the peace-loving Turks only do what is necessary to prevent a calamity for the people of Serbia in the wake of the collapse of the Hapsburg Empire.
17 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: I think Adam's move will be these: Mar S Tun -> Spa, Tun -> Spa, Wes Med C Tun -> Spa. Tyrr S Apo -> Nap. Apo -> Nap. I need to defend against Germany now. If I don't do it on this turn I will have a far more serious problem.
17 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: Oops!
17 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: :D
17 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: Bwahaha
18 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: That's what I get for using an iphone. Guess I'll never know if I guessed Adam's moves correctly.
20 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: The people of Sweden will never be conquered! Three years gone, and an open supply center sits unused.
26 Oct 14 UTC Spring, 1904: Secret to success is: Submit turns.
31 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: And submit them without mistakes. ARGGHHHH! I am so stupid.
31 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: Brave Sweden has finally fallen. France lives to see another day in sunny Gascony.
