17 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1901: Aw man. Not again.
17 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1901: Hey - France isn't so bad! Look who I am.
17 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1901: Italy's done pretty well the last 2 games, Dave.
17 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1901: That is true.
17 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1901: Gulp
17 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1901: As has Alex as France! This is a new One for me.
18 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1901: It's true - at least you're not Turkey.
21 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 1901: Let's try and make the build phase speedy ...
21 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 1901: Hey, some of us have a tougher decision than "Build F Nap."
21 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 1901: ha!
26 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: turkey is pursuing the little-used, but always effective "rope-a-dope NMR" strategy.
26 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: Simple but fiendishly ingenious - I used it to great effect with Italy two games ago.
07 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 1904: What the fuck? Half my orders didn't process correctly. This site is bullshit, folks.
07 Dec 11 UTC Spring, 1905: yeah, I have had that experience. Worth checking after entering ready to make sure everything is correct. NOt sure why.
07 Dec 11 UTC Spring, 1905: How about this? Everyone hold for the next two turns so that Alex can process his orders again. I'm pretty sure he meant to place a new unit in Paris, and it's unfair that he didn't get that. I had a problem with France before. I'm not sure if I screwed up or if it was the game's fault. I thought the latter but am not sure.
07 Dec 11 UTC Spring, 1905: That seems like the ultimate prisoners dilemma
08 Dec 11 UTC Spring, 1905: Russia has a point, especially given how engaged he and I are.
08 Dec 11 UTC Spring, 1905: ???
What did Russia say?
08 Dec 11 UTC Spring, 1905: I think he's confusing me (germany) w russia
08 Dec 11 UTC Spring, 1905: which is understandable given the closeness of the text colors
08 Dec 11 UTC Spring, 1905: but now I'm wondering if ol' purple has been impersonating brown...
08 Dec 11 UTC Spring, 1905: Ha, can't tell if we agreed on that plan or if it was made in jest. But I have no problem with waiting until 1906. Of course, F Lon H is not too far from what I was going to order anyway.
08 Dec 11 UTC Spring, 1905: Not sure if the suggestion is serious, but let's carry on.
08 Dec 11 UTC Spring, 1905: I hadn't said anything--but I'm not holding for the extra build. From what I can tell, an extra French army won't have that much to do this year anyways. Now if Brest were open, that might be a different story...
08 Dec 11 UTC Spring, 1905: Apologies for having confused Ger and Rus in terms of colors.

So is it correct that moves are being entered?
08 Dec 11 UTC Spring, 1905: yes i think so
08 Dec 11 UTC Spring, 1905: if people are ready, how about finalizing moves?
16 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: I'll be in Moscow taking a crash course in Russian.
16 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: Is difficult language, but you will learn, da?
17 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: Bien sur.
20 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: I'm out of town tomorrow through next Monday and will be setting pause tonight if we've not processed.
21 Dec 11 UTC Spring, 1908: So should we pause? I think we can conclude this very quickly.
21 Dec 11 UTC Spring, 1908: I'd prefer not to pause--does France have a smartphone to check in and submit orders? It's not like there's complicated diplomacy to be done.
21 Dec 11 UTC Spring, 1908: Мы не должны пауза.

(That's Russian for "We should not pause.")
21 Dec 11 UTC Spring, 1908: The truth finally comes out. Italy's move against the AH Empire was due to its sympathies for Russia, going so far, clearly, as to learn Russian! All is clear now!
23 Dec 11 UTC Spring, 1908: Once Italy gets his retreat orders in, we can wrap this up on Christmas Day :)
24 Dec 11 UTC It appears that emperor Enver Hoxha (ahem, cough cough ... I mean Franz Josef) has learned to speak Russian as well.

Austria--I realize that you have a facility with surrendering, but in case you're at a loss and the the Russians continue to shoot as you're waving the white flag, here's what to say: я чертовски сдаться!! (That's Russian for "I fucking surrender!!")


That's Russian for I fucking surrender!!!
24 Dec 11 UTC Please, there's no need to fight. The Tsar is looking for good Italian and Greek governors for the new territories! It's not like any Russian nobles want to govern Italians or Greeks...
25 Dec 11 UTC I would an assignment in Florence would be a plum assignment for someone coming from St. Petersburg!
26 Dec 11 UTC Gg all
26 Dec 11 UTC Congrats, brian. Great game.
