20 Sep 20 UTC Spring, 1901: gl;hf all!
20 Sep 20 UTC Spring, 1901: Good game, everybody.
26 Sep 20 UTC Autumn, 1901: I think for future iterations of this format, we should use Rulebook Press. Two days is long for a Diplomacy phase but unnecessary for Build or Retreat phases.
26 Sep 20 UTC Autumn, 1901: Or go with a shorter phase.
26 Sep 20 UTC Autumn, 1901: I agree
26 Sep 20 UTC Autumn, 1901: I find longer phases necessary when dealing with players in different time zones,but rulebook press is definitely fine. Sometimes it's nice to get a builds phase over the weekend though.
30 Sep 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: We signed up for 2 day phases so I don’t mind waiting if time is needed for negotiations, but I would encourage people to confirm orders when they are ready.
30 Sep 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: I second this with my orders readied.
04 Oct 20 UTC Spring, 1903: Nothing particular to say, it’s just been so long between turns I wanted to check in and say hi.
07 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: Ah, I assume the army in Rumania is just saying hi to me then :)

hi!
19 Oct 20 UTC Spring, 1905: Sorry, life intervening, will need to take a delay here
19 Oct 20 UTC Spring, 1905: 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.
23 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Good game Austria. Always a tough country to draw.
23 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Good game all! Sad to see it end but had some fun times :)
23 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: GG Austria. I really enjoyed your press and hope we can play again.
29 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: Welcome to the grave Germany, it's not the nicest place, but at least Halloween is coming.
29 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: Good game Germany. Nice playing with you.
29 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: GG Germany, hope we can play again.
31 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: Well, I'm joining you in the grave, Austria.

<3 you Italy ;)
03 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: Isn't Stockholm lovely this time of year?
03 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: I agree; most wonderful!
05 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: Crazy! I warned France in advance that I would be jabbing Ber to force Kie to support hold rather than intervening in Scandinavia, and still he'd rather help England attack me than defend his own territory.
05 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: Good game Italy!

I will abide by my earlier commitments to France and put my Draw vote up immediately Italy is officially eliminated.
05 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: You warned me 3 hours before the phase ended, and I never saw the message lol. No major harm done, but I don't know why you are going to global press with that.
05 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: Good game Italy, hope we can play again in a different situation.
06 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: As Oscar Wilde once said: some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go. I'm glad that my departure was greeting with standing ovation. Feeling humbled.
07 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 1908: So, are we drawing or what?
09 Nov 20 UTC Humm, I think it's the "or what" part.
11 Nov 20 UTC Good game all, well played.
11 Nov 20 UTC Good game. Glad it's over :p
11 Nov 20 UTC Ah the Draw finally went through! This was one of the most challenging games I've played.
rdrivera2005 - excellent ally, thank you.
bo_sox48 - relentless when you get an advantage, a player to be respected.
Bonatogether - excellent job making something out of a weak original position.
11 Nov 20 UTC Can't say I've enjoyed, but who plays Diplomacy for enjoyment? I've certainly learnt a thing or two, and would gladly join another one, as I take one here as an unfinished business.
11 Nov 20 UTC Good game guys. I enjoyed the game a lot and hope we can play again in the future.
