03 Aug 09 UTC Spring, 1901: Welcome all! Remember, Gunboat means NO diplomacy - that means private, public or any other sort.
03 Aug 09 UTC Spring, 1901: well, some public.
03 Aug 09 UTC Spring, 1901: Thats pretty weird. I don't think you can win this game all alone...
03 Aug 09 UTC Spring, 1901: you can't, but just because you are not communicating, doesn't mean you cant work together supports still apply, their just harder to use
03 Aug 09 UTC Spring, 1901: way harder!
03 Aug 09 UTC Spring, 1901: can we communicate public?
03 Aug 09 UTC Spring, 1901: yes, just no public diplomacy
03 Aug 09 UTC Spring, 1901: Good luck to all. I have ignored the notes to Italy and will not respond since this is gunboat diplomacy. Don't take it personally.
03 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1901: This gunboat thing is ridiculous...
03 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1901: that's what makes it fun! you have to read the intentions behind the moves.
03 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1901: yeah that could really be pretty interesting ;)
03 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1901: My first gunboat game and i think that i understand that if anyone supports a move from another player this is at least suspicious, right ? Can it be controlled if people are talking to each other ?
03 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1901: I guess supporting each other is part of the game and you cannot forbid it
04 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1901: they just have to anticipate how they will move
04 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1901: Sorry, but tomorrow i'm not in, i'll be waiting to post orders 24 h
back on thursday
08 Aug 09 UTC Spring, 1903: GameMaster: [HGZ] Jay was banned: Auto. The time until the next phase has been extended from 19 hours to 24 hours (one full phase) so you can find a new player to take his place if you want to.
Make sure to finalize your orders if you don't want
to wait, so the game isn't held up unnecessarily.
08 Aug 09 UTC This game is f***ed, what about a draw?
08 Aug 09 UTC i agree
09 Aug 09 UTC I agree
09 Aug 09 UTC Hello, For the record, I have just taken over France in CD. He sent messages to both Italy and England pre-game, both of which were ignored.

I have joined this game, adding 12 pts to the pot. If this game was to be drawn, we'd all end up with 13 or 14 points for a net profit. (My reason for joining is that I need 1 more point to be able to start WTA games :-)

If we don't vote for a draw, then I'm happy to continue playing this game. Otherwise, with people breaking Gunboat rules (old France) and dropping out and coming back, perhaps those wanting a gunboat game may be better starting afresh, posting messages in the forum, possibly even setting up the game as a private game so you don't get people joining who don't know what gunboat is.

That said, I'm completely silent from here, so... I'll zip it!
