Game won by Ansgar (420 D)
03 Jun 17 UTC Spring, 1906: Got your back red, an Italo-Austrian war is the silliest course of action our two sandwiched nations could take.
03 Jun 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: Appreciate it, Italia! Shall we try for Bohemia or support-hold Tyrolia?
03 Jun 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: Attacking Germany will only help England further pursue the solo.

@brown, howzabout you and Austria take on purple out East, while I make some ripples down south against yellow? You and France should be able to curtail Her Majesty's growth if you coordinate well.
03 Jun 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: Solo ????? Where is this coming from. Nobody ask me to work together and the only one I did is angry about it - because I saved his ass ......
03 Jun 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: I would like to do a three person draw
03 Jun 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: Ready to bury the hatchet Germ?
03 Jun 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: perhaps
03 Jun 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: Gre S Ser - Bul?
04 Jun 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: Ithat would be loverly, Mister Green.
04 Jun 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: Done.
04 Jun 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: @germany i will Support your fleet to belgium
04 Jun 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: @ when there still is a fleet
04 Jun 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: yeah that probably won't be happening
05 Jun 17 UTC Spring, 1907: so anyone want to align with me - i am not out for an solo! :-)
05 Jun 17 UTC Spring, 1907: I certainly would. I have no real way to help you or vice versa at the moment, but I'm glad to have an ally who is not Germany at the moment.
05 Jun 17 UTC Spring, 1907: Nice - I hope all the best for you :-) unfortunately all others beside strange Germany is working against you (and me) - but maybe we can ask Italy to join our side...
05 Jun 17 UTC Spring, 1907: Tapping Tyr from Ven, neighbor. For the odd chance (odd) Germany chooses to further advance, it'll isolate his army. Supporting Ser once more.
06 Jun 17 UTC Spring, 1907: Thanks comrade!
06 Jun 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: well that worked well, didn't it
07 Jun 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: Italy. Can I get a tap on Bohemia?
07 Jun 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: no, he wants the free sc in munich
07 Jun 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: How about this variation?

Bud - Rum with Serbia support
Gal - Vie with Tyr support
Gre probably gets gobbled up by Turkey--with a convenient retreat to Bul ;-)

Bur - Mun

Turkey can't protect both Rum & Bul at the same time, and neither can Germany keep Vie & Mun at once. You can always take Vie back (or Bud) next round.

Sounds like a nice start for an upcoming Fr/It/Au draw... what do you say?
07 Jun 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: Worth a shot!
07 Jun 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: yeah ty
15 Jun 17 UTC Autumn, 1909: How the fuck am I still alive? I mean I'm not complaining, but sheesh.
15 Jun 17 UTC Autumn, 1909: Also guys, we may wanna unite against England, just saying.
15 Jun 17 UTC Autumn, 1909: Germany is gifting the game away to England... What's that about?
16 Jun 17 UTC Autumn, 1909: It's probably about Germany being a moron, based on how they've played throughout.
18 Jun 17 UTC Spring, 1910: well thnaks
18 Jun 17 UTC Autumn, 1910: Support me into Tyr, neighbor? Germany will finally disband and we can worry bout one less annoying fly
18 Jun 17 UTC Autumn, 1910: thtas not kind
19 Jun 17 UTC Spring, 1911: @Austria: support Gre - Bul from Serbia and I'll support Vie - Boh? We need to take back ground from England... I'll support you into Rumania as well.
19 Jun 17 UTC Spring, 1911: I'll help against England if you guys get there in time
19 Jun 17 UTC Spring, 1911: Missed the your message Italy, but it looks like it worked out in Tyrolia. Let's go for it this turn.
19 Jun 17 UTC Spring, 1911: Ok. Good.
20 Jun 17 UTC Spring, 1911: Nice round. I supported Munich's hold in case England tried getting to the Munich booty before us. Supporting you into Munich next.

What do you think about attacking Rum this round from either Serbia or Budapest? Seems so much more fun than just defending Bul.
20 Jun 17 UTC Autumn, 1911: Hey, I appreciate it. Let's do this!
21 Jun 17 UTC Autumn, 1911: Hey, I appreciate it. Let's do this!
22 Jun 17 UTC Spring, 1912: Shifting Ven to Pied in order to support hold Mar (you'll survive this map yet, France!). Tyr can either support Mun or support Boh - Mun (your call, Red)
22 Jun 17 UTC Spring, 1912: Eh, let's support it for now, I guess. It would be risky to disrupt the front line against Engand.
22 Jun 17 UTC Spring, 1912: In that case, I would prefer to support you into Mun; if we both support H and Munich decides to move, our defense will be null and England will walk right in.

Since Germany's been quite erratic, can we order Boh - Mun with my support from Tyr? It'll likely bounce but at least won't depend on Germany at all.
24 Jun 17 UTC Autumn, 1912: Ok, England gets Portugal, Spain, Munich. We better make sure Warsaw stays ours!
24 Jun 17 UTC Autumn, 1912: Supporting Ruhr back into Mun, btw, Red, in case you wanna add a second support. Who knows what Brown will do, though!
24 Jun 17 UTC Autumn, 1912: Looks more like we will have a drawline before i can manage solo - so this is sum of squares so try to catch as much as you can before we draw .-)
24 Jun 17 UTC Autumn, 1912: Agreed, Italy.

sorry about missing the memo last turn.
27 Jun 17 UTC Spring, 1913: Supporting Boh - Mun, btw
27 Jun 17 UTC Spring, 1913: Austria! We are lost, England's gonna get the solo!
27 Jun 17 UTC Spring, 1913: Austria! We are lost, England's gonna get the solo!
27 Jun 17 UTC Spring, 1913: GG England, old chap you had us from the start!
27 Jun 17 UTC I take over in 1902 i think - it was more like a gunboat game - actually i was not thinking about a solo but how the game had developed it force me to do it ....
