24 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1999: Good luck with your start -- if fortune favors us it may not be too long before we can be of use to one another.
01 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 2000: Let that be a lesson on why not to use your phone to send on orders.
01 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 2000: No worry California, we are all very fair and honest players here. I am certain your nabours will go easy on you, since it was clearly an mistake. When I get to Kansas I promise to support you into Colorado. ;-)
10 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 2001: ## The Yucatan Daily News ##
Tommorows referendum is awaited with suspence. Will the people choose the Cuban wellfare state that they loved before the Mexican invation. Or will they choose Status Quo with the strict Mexican "No Cigar"policy.
10 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 2001: The world awaits the results of this with baited breath.
10 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 2001: ## The Yucatan free news ##
The Yucatan cities and villages celebrate the landslide victory for Cuban nationality.
01 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 2004: Here I come Yucatan! don't worry, Mexico won't hold you forever.
I will finish what Cuba started!
01 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 2004: The proud descendants of the Mayans will be able to look with pride on their lands once more on that day.
01 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 2004: A survey by CNN Americas/La Jornada reported that 81% of Yucatan inhabitants approve of Mexican rule. A major issue in the current election cycle is the threat of delusional, war-mongering foreign dictators. 69% of respondents listed national security as their number one issue.
01 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 2004: For immediate release:

From the Office of the President of Mexico:

In light of the blatant hostility toward our peace-loving nation and with national security a central concern, the Mexican government is imposing unilateral sanctions on the violent Peruvian despot and the misinformed California surf king. Mexico calls on all peace-loving nations to impose similar sanctions and will be greatly indebted to all those that follow through.

The borders of our state will be closed to imports and exports from and to these blots on the otherwise great region. Commerce with other nations will continue as usual.

The ambassador for Peru is being escorted to the border as you read this and his Californian counterpart is being given a day to reconsider his state's position of the cultural background of Mexican citizens. We will be more than happy to forgive and provide adequate training to alleviate his confusion should he desire to reach common ground.

Finally I state unequivocally that we will not stand for tyranny. We will not stand for lies. We will not stand idly by as hostile men threaten our borders. In the proud tradition of the Battle of Puebla we will take on any odds to expel the imperialistic invaders on our borders.

Para dejar el pellejo, lo mismo es hoy que mañana
01 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 2004: Here come the Conquistadors!!!
Imperialistic invasion!
01 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 2004: Well then, things just got interesting.
08 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 2006: Not from my perspective....God hunting folks.
08 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 2006: Good hunting....
09 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 2006: Good game Texas, BC.
13 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 2006: Good game Cuba.
14 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 2006: I don't think it was good.
14 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 2006: well, OK then...
15 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 2006: You gave it a fair effort, that's all you can do.
15 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 2006: Cuba, unfortunately we can not always win them all. Sometimes alliances work sometimes not. I too will not be long for this game. All we can do is try to learn from mistakes and how to read between the lines of those who turned on you.
15 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 2006: I usually leave threads in games where I'm dead alone -- no one wants to hear form the dead guy that is he is angry and so and so. Its all part of the game. But since the talk has turned to lessons learned, I can't help but respond. Too many players look to short term gains when looking at stabs and miss the boarder picture. We had a solid defense in the middle -- then FLA got seduced by the north, stabbed and it was suicide for us both. Was as obvious as a train coming if one looked longer term.
21 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 2007: I just want to say this before I die: Mexico is right about everything.

He said from the beginning I had to look north and stop Quebec, but naturally I didn't listen and fought him, since he seemed like the easy target. Now I'm reaping my reward.
21 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 2007: Mexico is the best! That is why everyone seems to want a piece of him despite only reclaiming a portion of our historical territory. Why can't we all be friends?
23 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 2008: The Mexican foreign service was indisposed for the last couple of days, but all of you have received communications or replies in the last few hours. If you get this before deadline, don't hesitate to answer back. I'll be on until deadline.
04 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 2010: So it's sort of last minute but a lot of stuff seems to be hitting stalemates do folks just want to draw with 5? Or do we want to another few turns to make some gains?
04 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 2010: My stance is clear. I'm ready to draw whenever and my vote will remain that way.
04 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 2010: Well this game just got interesting
04 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 2010: Indeed. Well it was kind of my fault though
05 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 2010: Yea...stalemates get boring. No hard feelings.
05 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 2010: I should have seen that coming but I've been really busy lately and not paying attention or thinking
06 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 2010: That does happen after a long game sometimes.
12 Nov 15 UTC Looks like everyone could agree to a draw.
12 Nov 15 UTC Good game all.
12 Nov 15 UTC Thanks Heartland for enhancing the game for a moment. It had gotten in a rut but your moves created a flurry of activity.
12 Nov 15 UTC No problem! Good game by all.
12 Nov 15 UTC yeah, and insured my survival, thanks.
12 Nov 15 UTC It was definitely an interesting move that shook things up.
12 Nov 15 UTC I will say for the record that my early alliance choice between Quebec and Florida was really difficult, I didnt really have any reason or desire to go against either of you. Also, the end game stab against Quebec that didnt pan out as well as I hoped, was really nothing against Quebec. I enjoyed our partnership but just wanted something to happen with the game dragging on forever with no real gains being made.

Again, good game to all and lots of fun.
