1 excused missed turn
Game won by Chumbles (904 D (S))
21 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 2: On the one hand, I say, 'don't count your (dead !) chicks until they've hatched'; on the other hand, Greece and Rome are moving at a slower pace than you, and you rightfully can complain to them about you feeling frustrated about that. But then everyone plays a game according to their own taxations of what is better to do !
In another - new game this will still happen the same way.
21 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 2: Carthage = 3AM, 7AM, 4AM, 8:20PM, 21:30, 2:01, 7PM, 18:59, 0:40, -AM,
Greece = 11AM, 12PM(noon), 10PM, 6AM, 8AM, 10AM, 15:45, 23:38, 11AM, 4:05, 12:03(noon),
Rome = 1AM, 12PM(noon), 12:53AM(@noc), 0:40, -PM, -AM,
Persia = 4AM, 7AM, 3AM, 18:04, 21:54, 21:15, --:45 (NL times)
21 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 2: I don't care about the pace of the game, I am just a bit sore about my circumstances. However, I know these things happen in diplomacy so I won't moan much more about it.
24 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 3: Heard there's a congress in Casa Blanca, so Carthage won't be able to 'mind the store' 24/7 as he used to.
24 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 3: Too bad for you, eh Caesar ?!
24 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 3: Of course, I'm not complaining either.
24 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 3: Casa Blanca = White House; so he's advising Trump? That's easy... just do as the rest do, say yes... nodding donkeys party.
30 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 4: Sorry for the nmr folks
30 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 4: Are you quiting ? Carthage looks like he has . . .
30 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 4: Anyone care for some tea ? With cream ? And would you like some nice Egyptian pomegranate apple on a slice of juicy honey dew too ??
30 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 4: I mean Carthage is going to take his time to NMR.
30 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 4: Idk why but the stupid restrictions on my phone have been blocking some of the webdip games recently and this is one of the games that sometimes pops up as "this webpage is restricted", no idea why but its pissing me off.
31 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 4: Uhw, that does cause aggrevation by many.
03 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 5: Also egypt, for some reason that has started happening to your messages too so Im sorry that I havent been able to respond to you.
05 Feb 17 UTC Spring, 6: May I tell all,
Highest Priest PELVIS EL VIS of Memphis, has announced that the rains will keep on this season. His knowledge of the camel not seeing his shadow had some cosmic implications, he entrusted to my ears in the temple which was filled with strangely sented fumes. May all be aware of how our deities will respond to this 'happening' !
05 Feb 17 UTC Spring, 6: Sit on a camel at midday? Madness, of course you don't see it's shadow. Perhaps, get off the camel?
10 Feb 17 UTC Spring, 7: Oh, (with all due respect) get off your high horse ! This reknown priest has sat on many a camel; he is wise enough to get off his 'high camel' when the sun's stance ordains it so.
10 Feb 17 UTC Spring, 7: It doeth seem that Romans, Carthagians and Persian alike, have all chosen to not mount up on their camel, horse, elephant or donkey. If you ask me, it is because their gods have also said for them to stay inside (rather than going on campaigns against each other.)
13 Feb 17 UTC Spring, 8: Well with persia gone, Im fine with a draw.
13 Feb 17 UTC Spring, 8: With no chance of a build, of course you are
13 Feb 17 UTC Spring, 8: Uhr, how does that work: my EgyS -> SyrS with supp from Tyre + GoP is parsed as losing against only Cil -> SyrS from Greecian side ?!? Can anyone enlighten me ?
13 Feb 17 UTC Spring, 8: Because that is force of 3; my SyrS -> EgyS was supported by Cyp, MinS, Cre = 4. I spotted the chance to wipe yr F EgyS. You should've spotted that and either provided a vacant space for a retreat or made a different move.
13 Feb 17 UTC Spring, 8: I am very sorry that I did "not spot that" 8-(( Hopefully you will except my apologies.
13 Feb 17 UTC Spring, 8: But then, you (according to your, I feel, stringent standards) should have spotted that by going CilS -> SyrS you yourself created a vacant space for me to retreat to. This is like chess: seeing situations clearly before they actually happen, is for us fallible people difficult. Ha, ha, ha.
13 Feb 17 UTC Spring, 8: I am very sorry that I did "not spot that" 8-(( Hopefully you will except my apologies.
13 Feb 17 UTC Spring, 8: Oh, thanks for your explanation. It cleared up my disbelief !
14 Feb 17 UTC Spring, 8: Damn, hoist by my own sense of superiority - how very annoying!
16 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 8: Whelp, great... I ran out of storage on my phone and it crashed yesterday and now Im down to 3 scs. What hurts the most though is the fact that the moves I wouldve made wouldve given me 8 scs and I would have a build this phase.
16 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 8: Get a new phone and a new mem card and only put on it what you need, not what you want. My phone is an Oukitek k10000 with 16gb + 32gb mem card - I text a handful of times a day, turn bluetooth off ALWAYS, use wifi for web access, but switch wifi off when I am moving about. I use about half the battery life every 14 days.
16 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 8: That's 10000mAh, downside is that it's heavy!
18 Feb 17 UTC Spring, 9: Hey, I don't need a phone to botch things up; I accomplish it all by myself ! Lol
20 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 9: Seeing as my vacation (skiing in Austria) has lead to some NMR on mine side, I can live with a "draw". How about you, Englishman ?
20 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 9: I would love a draw :)
21 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 9: Problem is Carthago, you don't have any centers at the moment . . .
21 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 9: Shhhh... its a secret ;)
21 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 9: Carthago deleta est...
Και η Ρώμη ήταν υπεύθυνη
21 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 9: Pls halp meh... Im a poor man in need of some dip points and a draw would help a lot...
22 Feb 17 UTC Spring, 10: My Greek is very rusty; I will try to decypher your message.
"Kai e Roma hetan upeuthuie" in a, for me more familiar symbol-system.
After this I'm not making much headway; I will discuss it with my diplomatic staf - my son who had a course in Greek 3 years ago.
22 Feb 17 UTC Spring, 10: In vernacular: And Rome did it!
24 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 10: Egypt, please come back!
25 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 10: Heyo, new egypt indahouse. Who wants to make a deaaal?
28 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 11: Vulture
28 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 11: Me?
28 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 11: Nekhbet
28 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 11: Mother of mothers.
02 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 12: :-))) (double chin)
03 Mar 17 UTC GG - Thanks guys; by the skin of my teeth! Unlucky, Wada, A/c, a sterling effort at the end and the game came down to whether you two realised or not that you could exclude the 50/50 guess by moving LIBS-Cyr as well as Cyr-Lep.
03 Mar 17 UTC Sorry Egypt, I should move to Cyrene as Greece said.
Anyway GG. Congrats Greece!
03 Mar 17 UTC Libs to Cyrene would have worked for this turn, but would have broken our defences too. Was a tough spot.
03 Mar 17 UTC True - easier for me to see!
