27 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 1902: There has a change of leadership in my country. You have all been put on notice.
30 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1902: As a player who likes plotting convoys, I am ashamed I did not see that coming.
30 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1902: Well, that message was meant for Italy, but not all know my shame.
10 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 1904: Hello yes, it is me, new Italy. We're now under "Never NMR" leadership. Are you interested in a loyal vassal to draw the game out with? Accepting applications!
10 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 1904: Sure
12 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 1904: I'll speed up the process for you guys.
12 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 1904: Also, damn, RIP Austria.
12 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 1904: Wow. All four in one shot. It looks like we coordinated that.
12 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 1904: France ima need you to go away
21 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 1906: It says everyone has entered orders, but the turn isn't progressing. What exactly does it mean?
21 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 1906: Someone hit save but not ready.
21 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 1906: ah gotcha
24 Dec 18 UTC You guys ready to draw now?
24 Dec 18 UTC Yep!
24 Dec 18 UTC Germany?
24 Dec 18 UTC Sorry. Just got home.
24 Dec 18 UTC Actually this was my very first Diplomacy game ever. I'm really happy nobody tried to stab me in the back after all the stories I heard about the game. :D

Thank you all. Good game. :)
24 Dec 18 UTC @Germany - You played well, especially considering it was your first game. You benefited a bit from the fact that both Russia and I picked different initial targets, but your diplomacy certainly played a role in that as well. Congrats on a successful first game.
24 Dec 18 UTC This was a very kind first diplomacy game....my first one I got brutally stabbed. Glad I could make it enjoyable for you. GG all
25 Dec 18 UTC Way to go guys, I know I didn't really do anything in this one (inherited it to try and speed the process up for you guys), but way to go Bostian, and welcome aboard!
25 Dec 18 UTC Thanks you guys. :)

You played good as well. The one that really stood out to me was that I thought conquering England would be way harder. Was it because the original England player left the game when he was attacked then?

But everyone made some great moves so I already feel like I learned a lot.

Good game.
25 Dec 18 UTC You are right. England made it much easier on me by abandoning the game. With Russia’s assistance, I would have ultimately prevailed, but the original England player could have made it much harder on me.
