10 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1901: Hi everyone!
14 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1902: Can we all just agree to attack Switzerland?
15 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1902: John put your orders in!!!!!!!!!!
15 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1902: Rob hasn't marked ready yet! So it wouldn't matter!!!
15 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1902: It matters to me
15 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1902: home from work. done
16 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1902: When I put my orders in at work, the worst that can happen is I screw up a number in an Excel file or miss a meeting. If Rob puts in his orders in during work, a kid may disappear and/or light a building on fire. Take your time, Rob.

I'm also imagining what happens when Jeremy puts his orders in at work. Does he mix up the Viagra and Vitamin regimens for a 65 and 10 year old?
16 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1902: When I put orders in at work, it's a typical day
17 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1902: Work?? Non-seasonal employment is for chumps.
19 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1903: The excitement is palpable
19 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1903: it's palpitatible.
19 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1903: Palatable
20 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: the excrement is palatable
20 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: Why does the game keep moving on even though the timer isn't up and I haven't submitted any orders?
20 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: Did it not let you move? Or did it say the game moved on as soon as you submitted?
20 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: It said it moved on as soon as I submitted. It's only during retreats and when I need to disband a unit--stuff like that. It's only happened once to me during this game, but a lot of other times on other games. Just curious why that would be
20 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: It just loads as soon as you hit enter if you are the last (or only one) to do it. It'll say game has moved on but it's moved on including your move
21 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: Green light your orders you guys!
21 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: My bad. Done!
29 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: I know y'all are waiting on me, had a busy yesterday, getting it done this morning
31 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1905: Just finalize them
31 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1905: I think Dave is contacting the Departments of State and Defense for sage advice.
04 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1906: Are we getting pretty close to a draw here?
05 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1906: I think we have a few more years to go...
10 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1907: im ready...i know im usually last so whoever needs to submit for it
10 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1907: go for it
11 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1908: i'm ready for this next turn, are you?
14 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: Hey Jer, I think we're pretty fucked.

Draw anybody????
14 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: I think we've got them right where we want them
14 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: But perhaps yes
16 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1910: I'm open to any ending here
16 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1910: if people want to duke it out, that could be interesting. Or a draw is fine.
17 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1910: I'm cool with voluntarily giving up and admitting defeat. Is there a way to do that?
17 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: I don't think there's a way besides by just stopping playing, which affects your ability to play in other games.
18 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: Then let's fight to the death!
18 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: It's been real, good game all
18 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: anybody feel like seeing if we can do a convoy from bulgaria to livonia or something before the game ends?
18 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: also, germany's 10 supply centers with only 4 units has got to be some sort of record
20 Aug 15 UTC can we accomplish that?
20 Aug 15 UTC i think we can
20 Aug 15 UTC Can't convoy to Livonia because Denmark doesn't allow convoys. Dumb, I know.
20 Aug 15 UTC Ok, good game everyone. This game is over and we all did a swell job. Let's call it a draw...

Wait, what's that? The Turks are attacking everyone?! Those guys are crazy. Whoa!

New scenario: prevent Turkey from getting to 18 and force a stalemate. I'm attacking everyone. You've been warned!
20 Aug 15 UTC thought you might do that. It's not hard for you
20 Aug 15 UTC Yeah. I think We should race to seewho can get the fewest SCs.
20 Aug 15 UTC One way or another, the suggestion that I attack everyone sped up the conclusion of this game. I don't think it was a slam dunk, but you guys would have had to coordinate carefully to make it happen.

Good game, all!
21 Aug 15 UTC Good game indeed
