23 Mar 16 UTC Spring, 1901: Enjoy the game every one!
23 Mar 16 UTC Spring, 1901: Good luck everyone from the Kaiser!
25 Mar 16 UTC Spring, 1901: Ahem. Yes, it's Easter, but war doesn't wait. Any chance of some movement from France and Germany?
25 Mar 16 UTC Spring, 1901: Just so everyone knows, it doesn't matter if there is a tick by your name. You have to be Ready.... i.e. your button needs to say 'Not Ready'.
12 Apr 16 UTC Spring, 1904: Let's use the "Global" forum more. It creates more of a group atmosphere.
14 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1904: Atmosphere? I'll create some atmosphere in Venice when I take it out of your dead, frozen hands.
14 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1904: And i'll believe Italy and Austria don't have an alliance when I see SCS changing hands
20 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: Vive la France!
20 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: Long live the queen!
06 May 16 UTC Spring, 1907: If folks could finalize their orders, that would be great.
11 May 16 UTC Spring, 1908: Four supply points lost in one year - quite a remarkable, self-inflicted collapse. A good illustration that backstabbing is only worth it if one can sustain it.
11 May 16 UTC Spring, 1908: Three, even
25 May 16 UTC Spring, 1910: Sorry about the delay in disbanding - I was travelling.
25 May 16 UTC Spring, 1910: No worries, thanks for saying something, and it happens.
05 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 1911: The beer is so much better now ever since we all started speaking German
06 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 1911: Cheers, or Prost, as we say.
14 Jun 16 UTC Spring, 1913: How the next round looks in my head. www.youtube.com/watch?v=bb8KZps4woA
24 Jun 16 UTC Spring, 1916: Ladies and gentlemen! The time has come to finish the game. Who will make the best tactical moves to get to 18 scs? Germany has succeeded in continuously growing. But Russia has done a great job staying within 1 sc of Germany. Two seasons left, who will end with 18 scs? Winner takes it all!
25 Jun 16 UTC Spring, 1916: Good game, everyone!
27 Jun 16 UTC Well, not entirely played by the rules initially set out, which was that no players can collude until the end, but must seek to win the game for themselves. Russia played poodle to Germany. Boo!
27 Jun 16 UTC Perhaps, but I'm not sure I understand what you mean by "collude until the end"? I was put into a poodle situation by my adversaries. At one point, I was surviving with 4 SCs, none of which were my home SCs. You might be right; though I don't feel terribly bad about how this ended. I just wish I got my points back.

Maybe we can discuss the game flow offline. I'd like to understand better and would like to get another game rolling if you guys are up for it.
