15 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 1902: dang
15 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 1902: italy can you attack budapest
15 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 1902: i mean rumaia
15 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 1902: Italy doesn't use press. He signed up for the gunboat game and found himself here instead.
15 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 1902: We'll I stink at this game
15 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 1902: *Well
15 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 1902: Great....
15 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 1902: If you Ready up it helps the game move.
16 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 1902: England,

Having two armies on your island is a waste of resources. Are you familiar with how to set up a proper convoy? At this point it may be too late, but it would have helped you when you were trying for Belgium earlier. I would start by reading all of the rules and the help section of this website. Just jumping into the game without doing that can be rough.
16 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 1902: I know how to play, I just didn't care enough/think things through
17 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 1902: I see. The whole "beginners welcome!" thing must have thrown me off, thanks for clarifying. This game seems to have attracted many of a similar mindset. At least you're submitting moves, better than we can say for some.
17 Sep 16 UTC Spring, 1903: Russia,

you could have taken Sevastopol if you had destroyed your northern fleet instead. What's the plan? I can't really help you if you're overrun by Turkey in a couple of years.
17 Sep 16 UTC Spring, 1903: France,

Good to see you at full force. Let's continue this alliance by dispatching England quickly and then turning our attention on elsewhere. We have a couple of behemoths forming down south.
18 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 1903: Turkey,

Any preference for me to attack among Venice, Trieste, Vienna, and Galicia?
18 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 1903: I guess that depends on where you visualize our future border, and if that border is mutually-benefitting and peaceful.
18 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 1903: I visualize the extent of my advance as being Vienna and Venice, with Galicia, Apulia, the Adriatic, and Tuscany being DMZs. I think this can be done with a little cooperation and luck by 1906. You would take most of the territory from Italy because I have a little island I am about to take over and a potentially broken French government to overthrow (unless they get their act together). Once your fleets are well into the Mediterranean maybe you can assist with the Iberian peninsula. Anyhow, that is getting way ahead of myself and I just wanted to help you out a bit while you are busy trying to retake Sevastopol. Let me know if I can help you a specific way, or I can just guess what might favor you the most out of my possible attacks.
19 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 1903: Hi New New France! I think you'll agree that I have honored all of my agreements with the two older Frances. Do you want to team up against the Italian scourge that took your province in Spain? I will assist you into London too, in case you want to stock up on fleets after next year. If you are interested in this alliance, I would be very pleased to see the army in Belgium disbanded, since you have to lose one anyway.
19 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 1903: hello
20 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 1903: Hi England. This is kind of awkward, seeing as how I am in the middle of invading your island. Still, welcome to the game!
20 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 1903: LOL
20 Sep 16 UTC Spring, 1904: England convoy out of you home land
20 Sep 16 UTC Spring, 1904: France can you Convoy englanld some where like Norway or holland or anywhere PLZ
21 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 1904: Turkey,

I am ready to attack Vienna, St. Petersburg, and Warsaw. Hopefully you can take advantage of these moves on my end.
21 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 1904: France,

I appreciate the move out of Belgium. Do you want to coordinate a way to disengage from England once autumn is over?
21 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 1904: Yes after autumn I'd like to remain in London until your army in Liverpool is moved to Edinburgh. Next fall I will move my London fleet to the channel, while you convoy your army back to Germany. Is that agreeable?
21 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 1904: France,

Yes, sounds perfect. Thanks for working with me.
21 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 1904: Perfect
23 Sep 16 UTC Spring, 1905: I have been quiet most of this game. I wanted to cancel for a long time with all the people leaving. But now I must speak.

Germany is on the verge of a solo victory in this game. He currently has 11 sc. He will have StP, Mos, and Venice at the end of next year, giving him 14 sc and three builds. He will roll right over me and get Bud,Tri, Ser, Rum Bul Gre Sev…… Not but a year or two and he's at the magical 18 sc.

We need to stop him this turn. He has more than ten times the points of all of us put together! I say that we, the political puppets, rise up against the political mastermind that is jackalb and Germany!

Let's finally say BASTA!

France, are you with me? Italy, stand up and be counted! And you're not done yet, my Russian friend!

I have a plan! Who's with me?!
23 Sep 16 UTC Spring, 1905: OK SURE
24 Sep 16 UTC Spring, 1905: Yes Mother Russia!!

What say ye, France?….Italy?
24 Sep 16 UTC Spring, 1905: Oh come on, Turkey you are right there with me and may even have an easier path to 18. I have been working with France this entire time, even though there have been three. If I wanted an easy solo I would have turned on him a long time ago. I am trying to honor my alliances and win as a team before any thoughts about a solo. I guess notions of allying with you, Turkey, have been set back a bit by this. There is still time for negotiation though, as always.

24 Sep 16 UTC Spring, 1905: Well so much for a popular uprising.

Well…. ahem…. er…… As you were.
25 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: France,

that pesky Italian fleet is a real problem. How do you want to combat the threat it poses?
25 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: Turkey,

my offer for our border still stands. We can finish off Italy and consider a three-way draw with France. I will help you take Moscow if you help me take Venice. Then the rest of Italy is yours. If you'll notice, that puts you at 14 SCs and me at 13. I hope this encourages you to seriously consider working with me and accepting the draw once Italy and Russia are no more.
25 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: turke can you support hold moscow germany is gonna go for it
26 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: I agree to a three draw with you and France. As a sign of good faith I ask that you retreat from Galicia, and in return I will not occupy Ukraine. Once I gain Naples, I will help you gain Venice.

If we are completing a three draw, I have no need for Moscow, as long as Gal and Ukr remain DMZ.
26 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: Turkey,

the army in Galicia will retreat to Silesia. Feel free to support Tuscany to Venice at any time. Thanks for being so reasonable.
27 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: France,

I am going to stay put with my fleet and army to make sure Italy's stray fleet gets destroyed. If you are going to disband might I suggest the army in Gascony? If you get rid of any fleets or the army in Spain, Italy will be able to cause trouble in the Atlantic again.
27 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: Turkey - glad that we could come to an agreement. I am going to set up my defensive line now and wait patiently for an assist into Venice when you are ready.
27 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: I hope to support you into Venice in the fall.
27 Sep 16 UTC Spring, 1906: Germany. I will support A Tus-Ven this turn. Good luck!
28 Sep 16 UTC Spring, 1906: Thanks Turkey, it is much appreciated.
30 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 1906: Germany and France, how shall we proceed?
30 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 1906: I am supporting Apu-Rom. Hope you can use it.
30 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 1906: I can. Thank you!
30 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 1906: France, can I help you into Tunis?
02 Oct 16 UTC France, once you take Tunis we will call it a 3-way draw. I assume we are all in agreement?
02 Oct 16 UTC Agreed.
03 Oct 16 UTC Well done, good game everyone. See you all around.
