Win, lose or draw, I would like to thank each and every one of you for the hours of pleasure you provide by playing Diplomacy with/against me. G-d bless us all.

01 Jan 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: Please be aware that I am in Toronto with family for the day, after which I will be driving from Toronto back to Montreal. The likelihood of me receiving your messages/pleas for succour/requests for sage advice and insightful 2021 stock market picks risk not be read any time soon. We regret any inconvenience this might cause but the real world trumps all.
03 Jan 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: Dear France and England,

After long thinking and discussion, this is my best attempt to draw. What follows is non-negotiable and it's my final stance. Take it or leave it, it's up to you. I am going to be very clear with my instructions, because if you were not to follow them I will simply throw the game to the other power. If both of you break them, I will flip a coin to decide who gets to solo. For me, either we three draw or I lose.

The situation at the end of Spring 1907 is going to be very simple:
- Turkey takes Warsaw
- Turkey takes Vienna
- France takes Venice
- Livonia stays empty (DMZ)
- Bohemia stays empty (DMZ)
- Nobody supports any of the minor powers
- Nobody attacks each other

If you are England:
- Do not support Warsaw
- Do not enter Livonia
- Do not enter Bohemia
- Do not attack France or Turkey

If you are France:
- Do not support Vienna
- Do not enter Bohemia
- Move into Venice
- Do not attack England or Turkey

If you are Turkey
- (As arbiter in this transaction I will share my exact moves for the takes)
- Ukraine moves to Warsaw supported by Moscow
- Galicia moves to Vienna supported (only) by Budapest
- Do not support Italy
- Do not attack England or France

All of the above happens in Spring 1907. We hold for Autumn 1907. After the Fall adjudication we draw.

To the minor powers, I say that it has been a pleasure to play with/against you, but all the good things come to an end. Hopefully you are of good sport and understand the situation and maybe also appreciate a little bit the fact that I decided to bring the deal in front of you instead than behind your back.

One last word to my two fellow majors, if you agree to attack me together you'd better be certain the other follows through or you might just have given away your game. If one of you decides to throw the game to the other, well... you saved me a coin toss.

You have 24hr from now to save your moves and decide what to do.

With Diplomacy,
*** for Turkey
03 Jan 20 UTC Spring, 1907: To the major powers; we remind you that it is no disgrace to lose. We hail the victors.
03 Jan 20 UTC Spring, 1907: Thank you all for an enjoyable and well-fought game!
03 Jan 20 UTC Spring, 1907: I am fine with this plan. I of course ask that we also make clear that should you, Turkey, violate it, England and I will be just as unequivocally determined to ensure your demise as you are Ours in the inverse case
03 Jan 20 UTC Spring, 1907: Likewise
04 Jan 20 UTC Spring, 1907: 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.
05 Jan 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: Italy wants all to know that though her cause might seem lost, she is making one last desperate attack in the hopes of regaining Venice, her spiritual capital. And if the sun no longer shines on what was once (at least in her own mind) mighty Rome, que sera sera.
07 Jan 20 UTC I see mine being the only Draw vote so far, hopefully you'll join me and we get to end this game. Otherwise I will cancel my vote next turn. I also went ahead and flipped my coin, I saved orders that are abandoning one front and concentrating on the other. I would be a 40% bigger allay and 100% reliable, so I am sure that whoever gets my support will stick with me and get their solo. It is up to you if you want to stop or continue. If you want to keep your word or not.
07 Jan 20 UTC Sorry for the delay, I confused two games that I was drawing and thought I had already cast my vote.
07 Jan 20 UTC Appreciated mate.
07 Jan 20 UTC GG everybody! This was my first Diplomacy game and it thought me a lot, thank you all for participating. A special ack to @Yaniv, you made this game really worthwhile! @ottobot, at the end you made the game really though, I had to master all my patience to not just throw the victory to England. At the moment I kind of hope I don't get to play with you again, or at least for a while lets say ;) @kang204, if only you had asked!! Again, gg everybody, see you in the next game!
07 Jan 20 UTC GG to all and congrats on a well-fought game! It was a blast
