15 Sep 19 UTC Autumn, 1901: GameMaster: Game was extended due to at least 1 member failing to enter orders and having an excused missed turn available. This has un-readied all orders.
16 Sep 19 UTC Autumn, 1901: If that was an accident can we all hit "Ready"?
16 Sep 19 UTC Autumn, 1901: I am hopeful it was. But someone still has yet to enter moves so I guess we'll see.
16 Sep 19 UTC Autumn, 1901: it wasn't me!

16 Sep 19 UTC Autumn, 1901: Well we lost Turkey, and looks like he wasnt the only one. Who else is still here?
16 Sep 19 UTC Autumn, 1901: Jeez, I think it is because I asked if they were a bot or a human. That is frustrating.
16 Sep 19 UTC Autumn, 1901: Jeez, I think it is because I asked if they were a bot or a human. That is frustrating.
16 Sep 19 UTC Autumn, 1901: I think its just turkey because all countries have entered orders
16 Sep 19 UTC Autumn, 1901: New Turkey
16 Sep 19 UTC Autumn, 1901: Once you are up to speed Turkey, lets ready orders so we can get this game rolling
19 Sep 19 UTC Spring, 1902: Looks like we have a Western Triple. Congrats on the West to whoever set it up. That’s a hard one to organize.

But there is nothing for it. I’m just glad to be in the front so I don’t need to put up with it super long.
29 Sep 19 UTC Spring, 1905: Good game everyone and kudos to the West side.
02 Oct 19 UTC Autumn, 1905: The Western Triple can't be stopped. Really I blame myself.
04 Oct 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: chaps this game could go on a long time. shall we call it a draw? with draw sized scoring it will not make a huge difference.
04 Oct 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: Actually at a 4way draw the winnings will be almost 90 points each. At a 3 way draw its nearly 115 points. That's a big difference.
04 Oct 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: not for the 4th player who doesn't make the draw :)
04 Oct 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: That's the downside of the Western Triple; it is hard in the endgame unless you're down with a 4 player endgame. It is super drawn out to finish off Turkey and the three of you need to decide if it is worth the time to go all the way to Ankara or worth the risk to turn on one another (who will be the odd man out).

Looking at the map I think Germany is 100% okay with a 4 player end game and I hope they have a better personality than me because it must be a 3 player end game middle countries are the easiest to remove.
04 Oct 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: I actually already offered Turkey the way 4 end game, he said no. So we got to grind through Austria at a minimum until he comes to his sense.
04 Oct 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: Thanks
04 Oct 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: I think you let it out of the bag with 3 way clearly. 5 way or a much longer game...
04 Oct 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: Yeah I don't see Turkey doing anything other than suriving if you three stay together
05 Oct 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: Not sure the Western triple was still in the bag...at least it really should of been plain by now...
05 Oct 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: Austria is a hard play, let’s call it a day?
07 Oct 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: With a heavy heart, I announce the termination of my relationship with Austria. His position would have been collapsing next year even with my support. My moves from here will be made with a 4 way draw in mind.
07 Oct 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: I want to take a moment to warn Russia, Austria and Turkey that it appears that France England and Germany are planning a Western Triple. I suggest we band together for mutual defense.
07 Oct 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: Russia was thoroughly unconvinced.
07 Oct 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: Russia's first builds confused me
08 Oct 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: England in Den was the give away but it doesn't matter now.
08 Oct 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: You keep saying this like the western triple was so deep secret in this game...we have never tried to hide it.
08 Oct 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: Thank you for the earlier compliment about it being difficult to organise.

Luckily I had very willing allies in England and France
08 Oct 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: It is hard to hide since everyone in the West gets +2 and no one fights. But I had to try to raise the alarm while I still could. But it didn't work.

And yeah, the Western Triple takes at least one great player and no bad players.
08 Oct 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: poor old Austria. feeling sorry for myself :(
08 Oct 19 UTC Spring, 1908: My dad always said "It's okay to feel sorry for yourself... because no one else does."
08 Oct 19 UTC Autumn, 1908: ha very good!
08 Oct 19 UTC Autumn, 1908: Austria, I'm sorry I couldn't make the game more lively for you.

GG to everyone.
09 Oct 19 UTC Autumn, 1908: Draw vote in, Good game all.
