05 May 20 UTC Autumn, 1904: Oooh I would like a vacation to Greece too!
08 May 20 UTC Spring, 1905: Is that a no to a greece convoy?
08 May 20 UTC Spring, 1905: BC I;m serious
09 May 20 UTC Spring, 1905: Hello there everyone. Sorry for being absent-minded, I'll try to take up my usual routine and answer your messages as soon as possible.
09 May 20 UTC Spring, 1905: Also, I'm afraid the convoy to Greece is not possible, seeing how Greece, the independent nation, is no more. There is only Austria!
09 May 20 UTC Spring, 1905: Gasp!
09 May 20 UTC Spring, 1905: There is no Dana, only Zuul.

...same sort of thing, right?

Lol.
12 May 20 UTC Spring, 1906: FrontDeskMatt, convoy me to sev
12 May 20 UTC Spring, 1906: I mean, I’m usually up to helping people with ties to the southeast Michigan area, but the good people of Sevastopol are are annoyed with their historic tendency to switch ruling countries. They’d be happier with a little consistency right now.
12 May 20 UTC Spring, 1906: Then to Rumania. The Ottomans aren’t picky
12 May 20 UTC Spring, 1906: We can discuss it in Ankara in the fall? Sound good?
12 May 20 UTC Spring, 1906: Here's my final counteroffer
12 May 20 UTC Spring, 1906: And it's a real doozy
12 May 20 UTC Spring, 1906: Convoy con to ankara with support from armenia
12 May 20 UTC Spring, 1906: Then ank will retreat to either con, smy, or syr
12 May 20 UTC Spring, 1906: Actually wait... If con convoys to ank w support, can Ank retreat to con???
12 May 20 UTC Spring, 1906: I know units can’t trade places, but if it involves a convoy I don’t know. Can’t say I’ve ever seen or tried such a thing.
12 May 20 UTC Spring, 1906: I actually employed this in one of my games to outplay an opponent :)

It works. So in theory, if Ankara got convoyed to Armenia and Armenia moved to Ankara, they would change places.

Italy vs Egypt, spring 2000, in case you're interested!
13 May 20 UTC Spring, 1906: I’m convoying con to Armenia russia, so plz place that order
13 May 20 UTC Spring, 1906: I went and looked at the game, that was a nice little trick, Austria.
13 May 20 UTC Spring, 1906: Correct.
13 May 20 UTC Spring, 1906: Thanks! I actually had to google the rules for diplomacy to verify whether it would work!
14 May 20 UTC Spring, 1906: F
14 May 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: If we draw now, I'm still alive
14 May 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: Or russia/austria could leave one of my centers
14 May 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: You still have Syria though!
15 May 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: 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.
15 May 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: Whoops, sorry guys that was my bad
16 May 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: No prob!
16 May 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: It’s all good. I was about to message England and make sure all was well.
16 May 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: Well, on the bright side of being eliminated, I'm that much closer to 500
17 May 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: 500?
17 May 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: Oh, points, I see.
17 May 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: Yeah he's got quite a lot
21 May 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: Everyone put their orders in last minute lol
26 May 20 UTC Autumn, 1908: Assuming that England doesn't stab Germany and that there's no other change in the power structure, this is a dead draw.

Austria has simply to order Rom->Tus S by TYS (can't be stopped - well, it could be but I won't help that) and Apu->Nap.

If he decides to let me back into Tunis to live (doesn't matter which unit I pick up) then it's ION S Tun, Apu & Tus S TYS, Ven S Pie, and everything else as it is around the board.

Even if England gets fleets into Tunis and WMS, it doesn't matter. Tus, Nap, and ION still support TYS.

There's probably even a way for Austria to pick up Tunis and still be able to defend it (although the cocktail is making that a little tougher to math out) so I guess it's up to him.
26 May 20 UTC Autumn, 1908: Yeah I've noticed the same thing. I would be okay with a draw now. If I stabbed Germany then Austria could readily beat me to a solo.
26 May 20 UTC Autumn, 1908: at least elim russia so that me and galahad arent the only ones eliminated
26 May 20 UTC Unfortunately, as much as I’d love to be eliminated, I don’t think it’s possible for me or France to be eliminated without opening up Austria’s defense.

I would have basically offered as such, but if Black Sea goes away England gets Sev and that’s bad news for Austria.
26 May 20 UTC I'm voting for Draw, as well. Best case scenario for me at any rate.
26 May 20 UTC Hello there. I'm putting in my vote for the draw in as well, there's not much else left to do.

Stabbing Russia is just not an option. Stabbing France is a low-reward/high risk situation. No thanks :)
26 May 20 UTC Good game all!
26 May 20 UTC Good game, thanks for playing!
26 May 20 UTC Cheers, everybody!
26 May 20 UTC :(
26 May 20 UTC Lol, nvm gg
26 May 20 UTC I know some of you don't have much time for webdip, but at some point in the future we should make another game with us
26 May 20 UTC No rush, but something to keep in mind
26 May 20 UTC Good game
