09 Aug 12 UTC Autumn, 1909: DRAW MOTHERFUCKERS
09 Aug 12 UTC Spring, 1910: Hey look EightfoldLESBIANS, everyone else has voted draw...
09 Aug 12 UTC Spring, 1910: Good nickname.
09 Aug 12 UTC Spring, 1910: I approve.
09 Aug 12 UTC Spring, 1910: I have taken zero art classes though q______q
09 Aug 12 UTC Spring, 1910: please hit the draw button and then you will magically learn how to draw!
09 Aug 12 UTC Spring, 1910: Here's a lesson in art:

Don't you think it looks like the side view of a face?
09 Aug 12 UTC Autumn, 1910: Nope.
09 Aug 12 UTC Autumn, 1910: Don't you see the nose?
09 Aug 12 UTC Autumn, 1910: o}
09 Aug 12 UTC Autumn, 1910: You have to have a little imagination.
09 Aug 12 UTC Autumn, 1910: France, those fleets are coming your way..
09 Aug 12 UTC Autumn, 1910: They're coming your way, Turkey. F Yorkshire - Black Sea.
09 Aug 12 UTC Autumn, 1910: no if i order F Eastern Med-Gulf of Bothnia first first
09 Aug 12 UTC Autumn, 1910: Germany going to cd on us?
09 Aug 12 UTC Autumn, 1910: Only if you give me a bigass cigarette dude.
09 Aug 12 UTC Autumn, 1910: I think it's really cute that instead of retreating to Burgundy, Austria thinks he'll survive by helping France. He's a cool guy. Watch your back, bro.
09 Aug 12 UTC hey France, time to draw
09 Aug 12 UTC France, you will lose. There's no denying that. Not only does England far outnumber your fleets, but he also has two spare fleets ready to go at any moment.
09 Aug 12 UTC Austria embarrassingly got two builds and leads the game. Ooops! I just want to point out / promise that, (a) I will not gain any more territories while G remains in the game, and (b) I am leaving the draw flag up.
Just to forestall any panic.
09 Aug 12 UTC But we have the element of... SURPRISE!!!!!!
09 Aug 12 UTC But I do see your point.
09 Aug 12 UTC gg, very wierd map
09 Aug 12 UTC GG
09 Aug 12 UTC q____q the dream lives on...
09 Aug 12 UTC Haha you all suck. Just kiddin. Good game in some regards. In others, such as FD's vulnerability and France's inability to stay away from the Spanish cheese trap, this one really sucked. Oh, and our British lesbian, of course.
09 Aug 12 UTC Oh, it's over. Wow.
I guess I was stupid to leave the draw up while Germany was still in. Still, great game by every remaining player.
Kinda wish I'd tried to solo now, lol. I had a pretty nice road for a few moves.
09 Aug 12 UTC Spanish Cheese? Where??
09 Aug 12 UTC Also, it was more like a three-hour war.
09 Aug 12 UTC You know, England said he'd hold Berlin, so I disbanded Berlin, because France probably wouldn't have been crushed, and he probably wouldn't have lost either, but I'm good at duping people, especially when I have them drunk on Gasconian beignet.
09 Aug 12 UTC Yeah no kidding. I would never have joined if I had been told tue truth.
09 Aug 12 UTC Honestly, I'm glad we included Germany in the draw, since I actually do feel bad about our constant cycle of stabs. It was pretty clear that neither France nor I would be entirely defeated, I'm not sure why we kept it going.
09 Aug 12 UTC * which is why i requested draw a while ago
09 Aug 12 UTC Better late than never.
09 Aug 12 UTC FD, you requested draw because you would have had 15 SCs in another three phases had we kept going...
09 Aug 12 UTC no i didn't, i requested draw because i felt there was no point in countiueing the game
09 Aug 12 UTC I would like to point out that Austria's map (Except CON) kind of looks like the profile of a really surprised person from the Simpsons.
09 Aug 12 UTC lol, nice Austria. just need to give you Con now
09 Aug 12 UTC (Mouth open).

Anyway. I think I could have made it to 14, probably 15 or 16. The last 2-3 would have been pretty tough though.
09 Aug 12 UTC I'd like to point out that Austria's map looks like a combination of Italian and Austrian lands with a random bit of German and Turkish thrown in. How strange.
09 Aug 12 UTC probably. You could have gotten, Greece, Smyrna, Rumania, Consntinople, and Sevastopol pretty easily
09 Aug 12 UTC No French or English or Russian though. *sigh* I really wanted to collect all 7.
09 Aug 12 UTC Right.
I suspect I could also have gotten Warsaw. Berlin and Moscow would have been kind of hard.
09 Aug 12 UTC I guess the right way to do it would be to tell England I was going to help him with you (T) after all, and then move up east before he sees the stab.
09 Aug 12 UTC your best best would've been to get some fleets and grab Tunis or some other French centers
09 Aug 12 UTC Oh, good point.
09 Aug 12 UTC Well I probably should have un-drawn. It would have been a fun try. But I was afraid the second I got to 10, everybody would wheel on me if I took down the draw.
09 Aug 12 UTC well these people are monsters... i got to ten centers and had draw up and look what they did to me
