Game drawn
08 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: This turn I'll lose Berlin, Munich and Switzerland... marvelous.
08 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: The downsides of being slap bang in the middle :P
08 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: If I may have one request out of the other 4 big powers (Britain, Poland, France, and Egypt), if I am to lose this war, I'd like to be left one supply center.
08 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: I can't make any promises with complete certainty, but if it would not be strategically illogical to do so I am very happy to grant that request if I am ever in the position to do so
08 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: If it comes down to me I'll allow any of you to retain control of one SC, as a courtesy
08 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: All right... now that we've settled that. Good luck, Gentlemen.
08 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: I need you to hit and/or take Volga, Egypt.
09 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: Volga is being hit by me this round
09 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: Good luck to you too Gentlemen, this will be interesting
09 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: Good luck everyone
09 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: Really, Egypt?
09 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: France it seems our enemies are facing treachery within their ranks
09 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: Yeah F this. Stop attacking me and let me turtle the rest of the game.
09 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: can I vote for you guys to draw so I don't get the notifications for another month
09 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: My vote is in. I think it’s just England and France now that are hold outs
09 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: I've taken away my draw vote because I thought we were all in for a fun final battle?
09 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: We could draw now :P but happy to fight on
09 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: France and I could well be defeated, which would mean I don't get a lot of points, but I don't care about points, I care about a fun and interesting game, so if everyone's up for it I would enjoy seeing where this one goes. That said, I will accept a draw of course
09 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: He doesn't care about points, says the guy who jumped into the lead seat of the Britain who was (and still is) on the most points :P If you're defeated, you lose no points as you put none in :)

Of course this is turning into an interesting game and I am curious to see how it will end.. Poland, are you serious about Turtling; or will you join me vs France/Britain?
09 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: I guess I can agree to a draw, although you guys would stand no chance against me in the long game ;D
09 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: I thought it was Italy/you/me vs France/Britain... but no?
09 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: The problem with that is that France and I have a stalemate, and to manouver through Russia is possible but would end in a stalemate.
However by moving through Italy (who will fast decline vs a joint UK/France) I can be better positioned for the war.
10 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: I don’t care about points either, but I have an issue when I’m backstabbed by an ally... this is the second one from Egypt
10 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: When was the first? Backstabs are one element in Diplomacy
10 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: Well, more of a fronstab, but back when you sided with turkey against me
10 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 2005: Egypt, what are you planning to do with Volga?
10 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 2005: I can support you into Moscow? Let me know which unit to support into it
10 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 2005: Latvia.
10 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 2005: Supporting from Latvia
11 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2005: Italy, I will not push towards Austria if you move against the traitors Poland and Egypt
11 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2005: Poland isn't a traitor, and, as you can see from previous disbands, I have a wall to hold up in the West
11 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2005: Poland will just watch then, as Egypt picks you apart from behind
11 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2005: Egypt, why did you go to Armenia instead of Kazakhstan?...
11 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2005: This way I can bounce Turkey, if he had moved into Arm he could have picked one of three empty centres.. I'll let you take Bulgaria this turn Poland <3 didn't know we both were making a move for it
13 Jan 19 UTC This game is just going to draw when Italy gets low. Might as well draw now?....
13 Jan 19 UTC Yeah, the stalemate line is being drawn. My vote is in to end in a draw
13 Jan 19 UTC Yeah... It's really just me getting shafted...
13 Jan 19 UTC Yep it's a draw, I'm going to vote now, no reason to drag it out now. Was hoping it would be a little more of a showdown, but we're just too even
13 Jan 19 UTC Sorry you got semi eaten Italy. At least you survived <3
13 Jan 19 UTC Is everyone voting to draw?
13 Jan 19 UTC My vote’s in
13 Jan 19 UTC I think France is the only one who hasn’t said anything... we should all turn on france
13 Jan 19 UTC France is the hold out, but I’m sure he will draw when he gets on.
13 Jan 19 UTC And just to be clear, I will not be turning on France, despite Italy's wishes!
14 Jan 19 UTC Yep I’m here. Like Britain, I was hoping for a bigger showdown but oh well. Sorry you got shafted Italy, I figured people would stick with their alliances, that was my mistake. I’ll put my draw vote in now, good game everyone
14 Jan 19 UTC GG fellas!
14 Jan 19 UTC GG guys. Was a fun game, and sorry to stab at the last minute Italy </3
14 Jan 19 UTC My heart is in pieces...
14 Jan 19 UTC Looking forward to the next MMtM game though. Good luck to you all in the future
14 Jan 19 UTC GG!
