Game drawn
21 Aug 17 UTC Spring, 1902: I normally don't mind NMRs, as I take it as every player's personal responsibility, but Russia is an exception due to her exceptional position right at the beginning. Absence of he player controlling Russia in the initial phase of the match does skew the balance across the board influencing practically everyone. My question, therefore, goes: shall we continue?
22 Aug 17 UTC Spring, 1902: Yes...!!! :-))
23 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Hi everyone, I read that impassioned plea from a couple days ago and had to join, if nothing else to keep turkey honest. I'm going to start with the horrible duty of destroying a unit and it obviously has to be the fleet in Sweden, otherwise I don't stand a chance of reclaiming the mainland...so England, Germany - can you give me a break by letting me hang on to Sweden for a year or two? Say till end of 1904?
23 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: England and Germany are unscrupulous opportunists, and France is a liar, so, hmmm, not much of chance of that, even if they promise anything. But prove me wrong, Germany and France! Prove me wrong!
24 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: I don't understand, Germany is calling himself an unscrupulous opportunist and you want to prove yourself wrong? Scaring me that I might be getting colour-blind :p
24 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: I think Germany may not really realise 100% that he is, in fact, himself Germany......:-))
24 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Oh, so you do talk, France? It was enough to poke you, and suddenly verbosity!
24 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Indeed, suddenly words
24 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Words and actions, sometimes married one to another, and sometimes, way apart. I would like to give floor to France to elaborate the latter.
24 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Tis naught but the wonderful game of Diplomacy
24 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: To this, I cannot disagree!
25 Aug 17 UTC Spring, 1903: Hey, England didn't take SWE!
By the same token, England, can I keep KIE, at least till, say 1905, pls?

(I'm chopping a piece of my body off if England responds at all. In fact, I am not even sure if England speaks English (sic!), as s/he hasn't ever talked to me. Maybe just shy, or tries to save on the keyboard).
26 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: Russia must have mastered sign language to sync that action with England. What a comeback!
26 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: I am sincerely grateful to England for having used his best effort to preserve the integrity of my body.
An alternative language version more comprehensible by England: 나는 내 몸의 보전을 위해 최선을 다한 영국에 진심으로 감사한다.
27 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: Easy Come - Easy Go.....:-))
28 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: I'm feeling like the Gypsies.
29 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: Goodbye Germany.....your words were (much!) more eloquent than your moves - (starting with the weirdest Munich move in Spring 1901 ever seen by these eyes)....
29 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: I was facing two solid enemies. You managed to lose two centres to an absent one. Just a wee tiny remark regarding eloquence, competence, etc. Judging by the geopolitical situation on the board, you're joining me very soon.
30 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: Good game, Germany
02 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1905: You were saying, Germany....??? (gain to 7 SC's..!!!)
02 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1905: LOL, you still don't get it, do you?
04 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1906: Always tough: being the first casualty....:-))
04 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1906: I've just followed your steps, o Master:

04 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1906: One day, I am also going to learn what it is like to lose 100 points. For now, I only know how it feels to rob you for 100:

06 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: hello
06 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: Woah, Russia! Good luck with your takeover!
07 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: Gallows-humour, I guess.....:-((
09 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1907: Who's taking Budapest...? (Germany...?). :-))
09 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: France. and RUM, England. And Turkey is going supernova. You can quote me on that.
11 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1908: Goodbye, Pink & Blue world.......:-((
11 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1908: Turkey, don't give up! You still can take BUD!
15 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1911: A handbook example of a perfectly co-operating alliance. Congrats!
15 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1911: Maybe too perfectly....? Or did you (Germany) fail to say France's latest move to Belgium, plus him sonfar ignoring England's Draw vote......?
In other words (maybe spelling things out may assist....): This perfect team may yet, at 5 minutes before High Noon, turn out to be an ordinary bit of backstabbing, after all...... ROF LOL....:-))
15 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1911: say = see....
15 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1911: sonfar = so far
15 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1911: Then NTH -> HOL and DEN -> KIE, if that makes you sleep well at night, Turkey ;-)
15 Sep 17 UTC Good game all
