18 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 1901: His Royal Highness, King Edward VII, wishes all fellow leaders the best of luck in this endeavour!
21 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 1901: Mis-ordered. Stupid. Oh well - it's been a good game, thanks for having me ;-)
21 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 1901: No one else is in range of Tunis, it's still a guaranteed SC for now. Game ain't over yet.
21 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 1901: Hey, I'm not going to leave like a lightweight - thats not me. I'm not a quitter I'm a serious Player, but - I fear that Italy is stuffed. Aside from the disadvantage of a serious misorder (self inflicted), I cannot appeal to the best Alliance partner that a normal Italian player has.
21 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 1902: You still have me as alliance partner… Oh wait, you just made the backstab-move to Tyrolia!
29 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: Look out Italy… Turkey has shown not to be the most trustworthy ally in the game;-)
29 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: I'm making a contest of this Game by working with Turkey. That is also Italy's only hope. Ultimately one must always consider the stab at an opportune time. Now France fanning out her forces to the South and with no builds, now there's an interesting proposition......
02 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: It is a shame to see Germany, Austria, and Russia all exit in the same year. Good luck in future endeavours!

This was a very low grade Game because Russia was immediately CD for entire Game.
Such circumstances of such a key country missing from the entire Game confers an immediate and massive advantage to all the Powers that border on it.
Nevertheless - my congratulations are extended to both England & Turkey for running a successful opposite corner alliance.

I knew that there was an opposite corner alliance in play once England put the Fleet into STP. Despite much discussion of this and attempted tie-up with France, he refused to believe this and trusted his alliance with England. The stab against France came as soon as the frontline reached Iberia - there wasn't any waiting around.
10 Apr 14 UTC It was timed so that neither of you would be able to grab the other's land.
10 Apr 14 UTC Thanks for the dramatization. I didn't trust him I just didn't like you.
10 Apr 14 UTC An interesting start to my Diplomacy career. Thank you all for the game and congratulations Turkey!
10 Apr 14 UTC France - you don't have to be a wanker about your feedback. No surprises that you're only on 40 points because you don't do any messages - you may find that helps.
If you don't want to do that - then play Risk instead of Dip.
