26 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1999: What do the double-sided arrows in the Great Lakes mean?
26 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1999: Rules:

34 supply centers are required to win

Great Lakes - Fleets cannot move directly from one Great Lake to another, except from Lake Michigan to Lake Huron.

Canals - There are a few one-space canals that act like Kiel in Vanilla dip. This means that the spaces have no coasts and fleets can exit on any side: Panama, Ontario, Michigan, Upper Peninsula, Chicago (see below). There is also a canal between New York City and New York State. Fleets can move from one to the other.

Waterways - There are two waterways where fleets can move as though there were a coastline in the listed territories. These rivers do not impede army movement:
Mississippi (Chicago, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansas, Deep South, Louisiana)

St-Lawrence (Beauce, Montreal, NYS, Ontario, Quebec, Gaspe)
For example, a fleet could move from Tennessee to any of Kentucky, Missouri, Arkansas or Deep South.

Landbridges
Units can move between Ungava and Nunavut. This does not block movement between Hudson Bay and the Sea of Labrador.

Units can move between Michigan and the Upper Peninsula. This does not block movement between Lake Michigan and Lake Huron.
26 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1999: While not stated in the rules, is it true this map does not constrain placement of newly constructed units to a nation's original starting Supply Center locations?
26 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1999: It better be...else I am screwed.
26 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1999: I'm told this map does require newly constructed units to be placed in one of the three starting territories.
26 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1999: Told by whom?
27 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1999: I can confirm that starting territories are the only unit building territories
27 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1999: Womp
03 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 2001: Anybody want to lend me a SC?
03 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 2001: I hear Hawaii is nice this time of year ;)
05 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 2001: Apparently nobody got the memo, RE: Not Messing with Texas
05 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 2001: I didnt mess with Texas....
10 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 2002: Well, looks like I am just in time for the Fallout 4 release.
10 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 2002: Dude yeeeeeeeees. I am SO excited for that!
16 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 2004: Fallout is amazing
23 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 2007: hooray for allies in civil disorder. That'll teach me to choose allies by who I worked with first over who seems more useful.
23 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 2007: Sorry Zac
24 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 2007: That sucks. I'm seeing a sea of red...
28 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 2008: Cali i will be upset if you dont go for the win
28 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 2008: He will, he has to with this good of a setup.
29 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 2008: You call a 4 way tie a "good setup" ?
29 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 2008: No, I call 20 scs, good position to be the one who takes almost all of mine, and no defenders against his southern/only real border to be good setup. He can solo easily.

Also, it doesn't look like Peru is part of any draw plans if they have them.
29 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 2008: Yeah i agree he has a good setup for solo, that's why i dont want him to draw
29 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 2008: That's true NY. It's pretty clear that FL and Mex have plans for a three-team draw.
30 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 2009: And here comes California in the South Pacific to seal the deal. Just wanted to note that I've survived both Cuba and Mexico's stabs. If the remaining players are convinced I must fall, so be it.
30 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 2009: Sorry for missing a turn, everyone. Thanksgiving weekend had a lot going on.
30 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 2009: I missed a build phase for the same reason. I don't think any of us hold it against you.
30 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 2009: Well, California has stabbed me . . .
01 Dec 15 UTC Autumn, 2009: And is about to stab me as well.
01 Dec 15 UTC Autumn, 2009: YEESSS!!!!! GO CALI! WHOOO!
04 Dec 15 UTC Autumn, 2010: Just so the board is clear: while I don't think the four-man bloc will beat Cali, I do think we will force a five-man drawl; stalemate lines are being formed as we speak.

If we do happen to knock Cali out, the remaining four players will all draw. Please post your confirmation in global.
04 Dec 15 UTC Autumn, 2010: 3 of us already have draw votes cast. a 5 man draw is my current intention.
04 Dec 15 UTC Autumn, 2010: I think I just voted for a draw. personally I'd like to knock Cali out but if we get to stalemate, no reason to keep playing.
04 Dec 15 UTC Autumn, 2010: Mexico, I think you just unvoted for a draw. It says you vote for Pause and Cancel.
04 Dec 15 UTC Autumn, 2010: My Draw vote has been cast. I will remove it if/when we begin to topple Cali, and will then activate it again once (if) he is removed. I've also asked him to do the honorable thing and vote draw now since he was the sole beneficiary of Quebec's civil disorder.

I also think the stalemate line is almost set. He still needs 11 more SCs for the solo.
05 Dec 15 UTC Missed last phase....
06 Dec 15 UTC He missed this one too - so we have our draw.
06 Dec 15 UTC Good game all. Would love to see more games in our group, either here or on the VDip site.
06 Dec 15 UTC I'm on both and hope to see you all around.
06 Dec 15 UTC That was lame.
