24 Apr 18 UTC Autumn, 2004: If you guys don’t mind, I’m going to go ahead and not destroy any units and keep them all. I’ll make them all up on the next turn.
24 Apr 18 UTC Autumn, 2004: Bold strategy!
24 Apr 18 UTC Autumn, 2004: So far all of my bold strategies have worked to perfection, so I can’t see this one failing.
24 Apr 18 UTC Autumn, 2004: Look on the bright side side. You kept me out of Michigan
25 Apr 18 UTC Spring, 2005: Mexico do you suck at this on purpose or are you an idiot?
25 Apr 18 UTC Spring, 2005: Chill out, Yankee. We're all friends here.
25 Apr 18 UTC Spring, 2005: Mexico is dead to me
26 Apr 18 UTC Autumn, 2005: Irony
27 Apr 18 UTC Autumn, 2005: I cannot believe we keep having to wait on NY to move! Unbelievable. Am I right, Mexico?
27 Apr 18 UTC Autumn, 2005: Good ol Mexico. Can’t even destroy units and mark ready. We get it you don’t like getting raped by Cali and Peru.
27 Apr 18 UTC Autumn, 2005: Mexico would have to mark ready to talk shit, which apparently they are incapable of doing.
27 Apr 18 UTC Autumn, 2005: Mexico, not cool. Step #1 hit save, step #2 and a very important one, HIT READY!
27 Apr 18 UTC Autumn, 2005: It’s over their head. Can we drop them from the next game?
27 Apr 18 UTC Autumn, 2005: I would assume it is being done on purpose this move. No way he needs to save a build but not hit ready. Probably just messing with the people complaining.
27 Apr 18 UTC Autumn, 2005: Next game needs 6 hour turns
27 Apr 18 UTC Autumn, 2005: Definitely agree with this
28 Apr 18 UTC Spring, 2006: Six hour phases means that if you go to bed at 11 and wake at six, you missed a turn.
28 Apr 18 UTC Spring, 2006: When you build your app make it not phase overnight
28 Apr 18 UTC Spring, 2006: New York, are you having a staring contest with Mexico to see who blinks first now?
28 Apr 18 UTC Spring, 2006: Also, Mexico is going to last forever unless Texas can take care of them for you all since there isn’t a single army down there that can take their inland SC. 20 fleets, no armies.
28 Apr 18 UTC Spring, 2006: Waiting on confirmation of a few things
28 Apr 18 UTC Spring, 2006: Actually Texas doesn’t even have an army within reach. Mexico is going to be able to sit there not hitting ready surrounded by fleets for at least 2 years.
28 Apr 18 UTC Spring, 2006: Maybe that confirmation isn’t coming for a reason?
28 Apr 18 UTC Spring, 2006: Maybe.
28 Apr 18 UTC Spring, 2006: I finally have you right where I want you. All your allies realize it, and have sided with me. We strike at dawn. The heartland will rise again. It is not important that I don’t actually control any of the heartland territory and that I am basically Canadian at this point...
28 Apr 18 UTC Spring, 2006: Darn. Should really wait until 5:32 to share your plot for domination.
28 Apr 18 UTC Spring, 2006: It doesn’t even matter.
My two armies are so powerful, there is no way to stop me, even knowing in advance.
28 Apr 18 UTC Spring, 2006: Well you were going to help everyone over run me so it’s gotta happen now right?
28 Apr 18 UTC Spring, 2006: Exactly
28 Apr 18 UTC Spring, 2006: Looks like the ship sailed heartland
30 Apr 18 UTC Autumn, 2006: Mexico sucks
30 Apr 18 UTC Autumn, 2006: True story
30 Apr 18 UTC Autumn, 2006: Missing another phase would mean that the game longer waits for Mexico, right?
30 Apr 18 UTC Autumn, 2006: Correct
30 Apr 18 UTC Autumn, 2006: *no longer...glad you figured out what I meant.
01 May 18 UTC Autumn, 2007: You guys trying for a 5 way draw? Because seems like no one is making a move anyway but the gulf coast. That’s a big draw.

Also, it’s really nice of BC and Cali to let me tour the west cost for a while. I’m enjoying the sightseeing!
01 May 18 UTC Autumn, 2007: I guess there is BC’s obvious attack on NY up north, but I have a feeling he was hoping every one would miss that.
01 May 18 UTC Autumn, 2007: Heartland, get a life and say your prayers. I’m outnumbered in the Northeast and if I was going to make a move up there, I’d have already done it. Even if I wanted to, I can’t take a single SC from NY. While you’re waiting for the next game, you should see about getting a brain.
01 May 18 UTC Autumn, 2007: Haha, “get a life” and “see about getting a brain” good ones! Why you so mad? I’m just having fun. Why would I just lay down and die to make it easier on you when you are the one who attacked me to begin with? You don’t really have a leg to stand on being annoyed with me. You lied to me from the beginning, attacked me, and then turned down any help I offered. All fair in this game, but so is me being a pain in your ass when you left the door open.

I’m under no delusions that I am going to survive this game, but I’m definitely not done quite yet. I have a couple more turns left in me. Then you all can enjoy your draw.
01 May 18 UTC Autumn, 2007: What’s the plan on the draw?
01 May 18 UTC Autumn, 2007: Oooh ooh let me draw!!
01 May 18 UTC Autumn, 2007: If you had any courage you would at least go to a 3 way draw.
01 May 18 UTC Autumn, 2007: I couldn’t agree more. A 5 way draw is silly. I think you should all turn and attack the person who is clearly the weakest left...BC.

Then we can all talk about our draw...
01 May 18 UTC Autumn, 2007: We’ll ride with you or bc. Whoever is left after your tour of the west.
01 May 18 UTC Autumn, 2007: I guess that’s fair. You gotta give poor BC at least a shot...
01 May 18 UTC Autumn, 2007: That’s what I meant
02 May 18 UTC Spring, 2008: How do we know who was who at the end
02 May 18 UTC Spring, 2008: When the game ends, it changes all the anonymouses to the names of the players.
02 May 18 UTC Autumn, 2008: Awww, you guys figured it out. Well, it was a good run!
02 May 18 UTC Autumn, 2008: It’s too bad I don’t get 1 more turn...
