20 Aug 15 UTC [Europe]:I have school tomorrow in a few hours and I am TIRED. Good job people, fun world live game
20 Aug 15 UTC [Europe]:Maybe on a weekend I'd go further
20 Aug 15 UTC [Argentina]:well guys, I remember why I hate world.
20 Aug 15 UTC [Kenya]:I just kept waiting for Argentina to come to my rescue. I wasn't sure how long I could defend Africa! Good game
20 Aug 15 UTC [Pacific-Russia]:whew, usa and I survive by the skin of our teeth
20 Aug 15 UTC [Western-Canada]:ughh, so ridiculous. first time playing this variant. nuts. gg though
20 Aug 15 UTC [India]:Strange action in East Asia and North Africa.
20 Aug 15 UTC [Western-Canada]:i think i had you in the north, europe
20 Aug 15 UTC [Europe]:Pac Rus next time I would not suggest letting me run you over, but i am grateful and merciful so here you go.
20 Aug 15 UTC [Europe]:I saw that too, people started ganging up on me! good first World game bohonk :)
20 Aug 15 UTC [Western-Canada]:thanks!
20 Aug 15 UTC [Kenya]:There were 5 of us with 10 SC's. I was hoping we'd all just join forces and knock you down a few pegs.
20 Aug 15 UTC [Pacific-Russia]:Europe, I let you run me over out of revenge for India playing in a way I didn't like -- playing against me too hard at a time when India should have started working together with me against you. Since India was going to hand you the easy win, I at least was going to get in their way on my way out of the game.
20 Aug 15 UTC [Europe]:EOG up
20 Aug 15 UTC [Argentina]:well done Kenya, you took the brunt for a long time. Thanks for the good relations bohonk.
20 Aug 15 UTC [India]:And there's the explanation for the strange action - berserkerness! Pac - why didnt you pincer China out of the game when we had the chance? I was nowhere near your home SCs.
20 Aug 15 UTC [India]:And there's the explanation for the strange action - berserkerness! Pac - why didnt you pincer China out of the game when we had the chance? I was nowhere near your home SCs.
20 Aug 15 UTC [India]:And I was handing Eur the win? 3 abutting CDs seemed to help.
20 Aug 15 UTC [India]:Though I did like Ghana's failure to find the draw key.
20 Aug 15 UTC [Pacific-Russia]:Of course the unfortunate layout of the CDs played a part in Europe having an advantage, but let's ask James ... Europe, until the time that I gave up the game and retreated east out of Moscow and Siberia, had you felt any pressure being applied from India at all?
20 Aug 15 UTC [Kenya]:I'm pretty sure Ghana was trying to weasel his way in to a draw. He was around, but he just put in "hold" orders for a while.
20 Aug 15 UTC [India]:Pac - India doesn't border Eur. Long way for me to get at him. Had F-Ara trying to hold up Near East as it were. Still - understandable slavic berserkerness. I've been there.
20 Aug 15 UTC [Europe]:Definetly! India was a major reason i wasnt gonna solo
20 Aug 15 UTC [Pacific-Russia]:When Russia , NearEast, and Libya are non-players, then India does effectively border Europe, with a lot of valuable SCs lying along that effective border.
20 Aug 15 UTC [Pacific-Russia]:Anyways, I guess we got James' answer and I was wrong, so good game to 'ya.
20 Aug 15 UTC [Europe]:indeed, but you didnt play your cards right wpfieps, you should have fought back against me
20 Aug 15 UTC [Brazil]:JAMES YANIK
