03 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1901: GAME ON!
03 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1901: Italy, Western Triad, Eastern Triad. How come Brian never changes and I constantly do? Definitely better than Italy 3x I guess.
03 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1901: No fresh linguini and courtesans for you then STP
03 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1901: GAME ON!
03 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1901: my bad i forgot refreshing causes me to send a message twice
04 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1901: In Soviet Russia back stabs you!
04 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1901: Pip pip, cheerio, what what.
04 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1901: That has got to be the second most pathetic battle cry ever conceived in Diplomacy.
09 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Is it too late to propose a truce, then alliance, then a massive invasion and razing of Tampa?
09 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Holy shit I got a build... I'M DOING BETTER THAN I DID IN THE LAST GAME!
11 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: So this round takes as long as the others then?
11 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Somebody didn't ready up apparently.
11 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: We're just waiting for Turkey and Russia to hit ready on their builds. No rush, though, if there's some urgent negotiations going on behind the scenes.
11 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Or people are involved in complex deviant things. Either way.
17 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1902: This just got good
18 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1902: Well you can thank my noob understanding of game mechanics for Budapest, Russia.
19 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1902: You're doing better than I did out of the gate. I got hosed over by Tom then Brian in rapid succession.
23 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: I feel like negotiation talks have died down
23 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: Or they've all shifted to google hangouts and text
24 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: Besides digital communications, I have also seen Italy on my front lawn angrily shaking his fist. I wouldn't consider it diplomatic, but it is fairly effective.
25 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: Russia hasn't said anything to me in a while, but I did receive a box marked "YOUR HOPES AND DREAMS" and it was just full of shattered glass with a hammer and sickle on the inside
25 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: Bravely bold sir Colin, rode forth from Camelot. He was not afraid to die, oh brave sir Colin. He was not at all afraid to be killed in nasty ways…
25 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: Germany and England sitting in a tree. "K", "I", "S", "S", "I", "N", "G".
25 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: More like S U C K I N G E A C H O T H E R S D I .... you guys get it.
25 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: You try to juggernaut the bull, you get the horns
25 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: This wasn't about stopping juggernaut - you individually have more territory than Turkey and Russia combined. Counting Germany you guys have almost double. This was Brian somehow being convinced to let you win at his own expense.

The fact that there are literally no armies to defend England should be a bit of a warning sign...
26 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: I'm sure Germany sees my occupation of Holland as completely peaceful, just as Austrian Bulgaria poses no threat to Turkey.
26 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: Am I the only one who doesn't like the fact that Russia has just given up winning and is just helping Turkey instead?
26 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: Given that there is no evidence of that I would say... yes.
26 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: Trust me, I have not given up attempting to make your lives hell... MUAHAHAHAHA!!!!
26 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: I would give one solid american gold dollar to see russia actively take steps against turkey in his decline
26 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: it's funny because Russia has no beef with me but should harbor a suicidal rage towards yourself
26 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: One would think, but if the rumors are to be believed, he's more interested in my demise than anything. Guess he's your lapdog until the end...and you never even gave him a treat.
26 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: I just realized all of these comments are like fortune cookies - made much better by the addition of "in bed" at the end.

(except for comments about myself of course)
27 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1904: Because nobody thinks about Tom...in bed?
27 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1904: I know I haunt your dreams. Don't lie to yourself.
21 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: What happened to Brian while I was gone? Did he finally realize how terrible an idea it is to trust Colin?
22 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: He expressed that sentiment at some point, yes. Though Colin has also demonstrated it quite nicely as well
23 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: Well... this is awkward.
23 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: Not for me!
30 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1907: Can we speed this game up at all?
01 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1907: Ready your moves and accept oblivion!
06 Aug 15 UTC Well second place ain't bad I guess
06 Aug 15 UTC *third - screw you Austria :-p
06 Aug 15 UTC *tied for second? I dunno the bars don't line up. I had 2nd most units and tied for second most supply-centers if I look on the right. I guess that's what to go by?

Regardless the real question is why Germany and France decided to hand yet another game to Colin.
06 Aug 15 UTC Sexual favors.
06 Aug 15 UTC And then blackmail over said sexual favors.
06 Aug 15 UTC I'll take 2nd place for my first game. But I think Germany needs some professional help after that one...or maybe he just really liked those sexual favors...
