28 Mar 15 UTC Spring, 1994: Greetings all, Egyptian hospitality unto you all!
28 Mar 15 UTC Spring, 1994: GL;HF
28 Mar 15 UTC Spring, 1994: Good luck all!
03 Apr 15 UTC Spring, 1996: GameMaster: MylesP14 was banned: repeat multi/meta. 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!
03 Apr 15 UTC Spring, 1996: well that makes my job a lot easier
03 Apr 15 UTC Spring, 1996: hey everyone
03 Apr 15 UTC Spring, 1996: Welcome, new Poland!
03 Apr 15 UTC Spring, 1996: Thanks
05 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 1996: thank you for joining new poland
05 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 1996: No problem
14 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 1998: Spain is nearing defeat. Goodbye, peace out, live long, and prosper. Word to your mothers.
14 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 1998: Ciao, Spain!
14 Apr 15 UTC Spring, 1999: Does anyone else feel just a little bit bad that the first three countries we bumped off were the small ones with only three starting SCs?
14 Apr 15 UTC Spring, 1999: Nope, I just feel bad because I might be next!
17 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 1999: Man, you guys all really hate Italians for some reason.
24 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 2001: well this greatly changes things....
24 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 2001: What do you suppose are the odds that there won't be a replacement in the next two turns and I'd be able to leave and rejoin this game as Germany? =)
24 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 2001: Greetings! I think the odds were very low for that England :P
30 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 2004: Sad to see I was even kicked out of Bosnia. :/
01 May 15 UTC Autumn, 2004: That was a great stronghold for long! :D
03 May 15 UTC Spring, 2006: All right I've put my Draw vote back up. I'm prepared to call it a well-fought match if the rest of y'all are.
04 May 15 UTC Spring, 2006: It only depends on Turkey now.
04 May 15 UTC Autumn, 2006: Why do we need this struggle?
04 May 15 UTC Autumn, 2006: b/c I'd be giving up 100 pts if I drew with yall.
04 May 15 UTC Autumn, 2006: even though we are at a virtual standstill...
05 May 15 UTC Spring, 2007: Its PPSC, so if yall stab each other, its in yall best interest. then this game will end faster and youll get more points
05 May 15 UTC Spring, 2007: For you and Germany, perhaps. In the case of a draw, we split the points 4 ways equally. 648/4 = 162.

So France and I gain points from drawing.

Not to mention that in order for you to win, you still need 7 more SCs. Each SC is worth about 10 points, so even Germany (who is currently breaking even) might end up with fewer than 162 points if you take more than 3 SCs from him.
06 May 15 UTC Spring, 2007: so you only gain if you stab ger
06 May 15 UTC Spring, 2007: I can gain about 90 points relative to my current standing by forcing a draw. But you don't seem to think that's possible for me to do for some reason...?

I assume what you're really trying to say here is that a draw is absolutely off the table, and that the game will end only when you have finished conquering 7 more SCs?
06 May 15 UTC Spring, 2007: im going to see where this game goes for a year or two. then see. i dont see playing as a burden - i like this
06 May 15 UTC Spring, 2007: I've done that in one of my games before. Not like this though - there were four players who more or less split the board evenly into quarters. Ironically, at the end of those two turns where the power balances on the board were tipping, one of the four players on the board rescinded his Draw vote and decided to play for Endgame. Luckily, he was the one on my team. But yeah, take your time. Enjoy the game. I know I am. And spirited debates are the spice of life.
06 May 15 UTC Spring, 2007: Is there a way to friend people on this website? B/c I want to be your friend lightningpastry
06 May 15 UTC Spring, 2007: Heh. I wish. I appreciate the compliment though.

Be careful what you wish for, though. Playing games with someone who you've declared to be your "friend" is an excellent way to bring the moderators down on your head for Metagaming.
11 May 15 UTC Autumn, 2009: Moral of today's round: Don't leave your orders to the last 1 minute 34 second, because this happens... Warsaw support hold Silesia..... o.O Weeeell done.
11 May 15 UTC Autumn, 2009: On the bright side, Silesia was extremely well protected. I'm sure the citizens of Wroclaw appreciate the added security.
11 May 15 UTC Autumn, 2009: HAhahah
15 May 15 UTC Autumn, 2010: Still keeping? 4 rounds, no progress...
15 May 15 UTC Spring, 2011: I see myelsf making progress
16 May 15 UTC England left.. 3 way draw now?
