05 May 20 UTC Spring, 1901: I guess I've had too many games as England and France of late. Time to get back in the middle of things.
05 May 20 UTC Spring, 1901: By the by, cool thing about this particular game. I have a cousin from my Mom's side and a cousin from my Dad's side playing.
05 May 20 UTC Spring, 1901: If history has taught us anything, it's that everyone should work together to wipe out Germany.
05 May 20 UTC Spring, 1901: ...and Italy. ;)
05 May 20 UTC Spring, 1901: Or...now hear me out on this...Germany could bring the world together in peace and happiness...under one umbrella, and that umbrella would be under my control.
05 May 20 UTC Spring, 1901: The Brits have a point. Down With the Third Reich!
05 May 20 UTC Spring, 1901: I'm really not liking how this is going...
06 May 20 UTC Spring, 1901: I want you all to know that I just played a quick practice game with 15 minute turns. Two North American face to face diplomacy champs were in the game. I was a disaster. I need 48 hours to think and craft my strategy. With 15 minute turns, and as Austria, I forgot everything. I don't even think I remembered to lie or deceive, i just blatantly told everyone what I was thinking. There were video conference calls, those REALLY through me off. Anyway, I was crushed as Austria by the end of 1902. Also, Chris Martin called me a mug and a piker. :)
06 May 20 UTC Spring, 1901: That sounds like a ton of fun honestly.
06 May 20 UTC Spring, 1901: If you are free memorial day weekend, you can still sign up.

It is free.
06 May 20 UTC Spring, 1901: If during this first turn: France moves to Bur, Russia moves to Silesia, Austria moves to Boh, and Italy moves to Tyrolia, then I am going to be so incredibly amazingly upset. I might even tell my mom, then you'll be in trouble.
06 May 20 UTC Spring, 1901: Alright everyone. Germany is calling us to coordinate. Let's work together just how they suggested!
06 May 20 UTC Autumn, 1901: Holy moly! None of that happened, man you guys had me scared with your talk for a while there.
Also, shut up Russia.
06 May 20 UTC Autumn, 1901: Russia seeks harmony with All of our neighbors of course. Please don't be afraid to plead for your lives or even prostrate yourself before the glorious Tsar. Russia is a merciful and loving God.
It's Our collective world.
Join Us as We take back what is Ours, the people of this great world, from the corrupt landlords.
Join the people.
Death to the bourgeoisie.

06 May 20 UTC Autumn, 1901: It's a little early in the war for Soviet Anthems.
06 May 20 UTC Autumn, 1901: It's never to early to join Us against the capitalists that seize the means of production from the true heroes, the workers.
06 May 20 UTC Autumn, 1901: I've always thought that song was best sung from atop the Reichstag.
06 May 20 UTC Autumn, 1901: Hey, all the anti-German sentiment just isn't funny anymore. It's old hat. So last year. Come on, be hip. The cool new thing is to take digs on the French.
08 May 20 UTC Autumn, 1901: For people that want to play the game without talking about it.

13 May 20 UTC Spring, 1903: GameMaster: Game was extended due to at least 1 member failing to enter orders and having an excused missed turn available. This has un-readied all orders.
13 May 20 UTC Spring, 1903: oof
13 May 20 UTC Spring, 1903: double oof.
20 May 20 UTC Autumn, 1904: Russia needs 5 more centers for the solo, you guys ready to shut him down?
20 May 20 UTC Autumn, 1904: Austria and Italy, it might be time to put away your differences and work together, can you guys discuss it and see if you can works something out?
20 May 20 UTC Autumn, 1904: I have a better offer. Italy I offer my hand in friendship to you. Join me. I won't take any more Centers for myself. In fact, the only one I can take on my own would be Trieste. I'll support you in, get you more power and together we will destroy everyone in our path.
England you are welcome to join still.
21 May 20 UTC Spring, 1905: Good luck everybody! Turkey didn't fair so well this round.
21 May 20 UTC Spring, 1905: Everyone give props to Turkey, they were a super good sport! :)
21 May 20 UTC Spring, 1905: Good Game Turkey! Better fortune next time!
22 May 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Hey Turkey, if you are still listening, tell England what happens to people that listen to Russia's grand plans and promises. Tell England what the word of the Russian is worth.
22 May 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Darth Vader: Russia
Lando: England
Solo: Germany
22 May 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: I laugh at your implication that the Empire are even the bad guys. Who would want to be a part of a radical Terrorist organization that steals the building plans of a peacekeeping weapon, and then uses those plans to blow it up. Their constant resistances pushing the Empire to have to fight back aggressively causing the live of many innocents to be harmed that otherwise would have been safe and happy. Oh and did I mention that the Empire was working hard to end slavery in the galaxy? The rebels must be pro-slavery. How morally indefensible.
22 May 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Austria: Jar Jar Binks
22 May 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: As I recall, Lando went about his business while Solo was taken away in a block of carbonite.
23 May 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Technical question: Can anyone help me understand why my supported move from Holland to Kiel failed? I think I either messed something up, but then again I don't think so.
23 May 20 UTC Spring, 1906: Germany supported his unit from Sweden into Denmark.
Since Denmark was attacked (canceling it's support)
And Kiel was attacked (canceling it's support)
The end result was the following orders:
Kiel -> Hold
Denmark -> Hold
Holland -> Move to Kiel
Sweden-> Move to Denmark

And since neither of you had more power than the other, both of you just bounced and remained exactly where you started
23 May 20 UTC Spring, 1906: I am Russia in this game, and I did horribly. First game of Dixiecon today.

23 May 20 UTC Spring, 1906: 15 minutes turns.
23 May 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: Italy and Austria and making it hard for the three way win between England, Russia and Italy.
Oh well. Germany will soon fall, and once I destroy Vienna, England will work towards finishing off Naples.
After that it will just be the three of us and I'll submit my draw vote. If italy really doesn't want to win the game after that then I just don't know what to do.

Italy seems to be trying to force me to go for a solo win.
24 May 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: You can always strategically give up some supply centers to avoid triggering a solo win.
24 May 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: I won't be bullied by Italy. I'll take the solo win if Italy refuses to work with me. If they keep attacking me after We've eliminated everyone else, then Italy has decided they'd rather lose than be on the right side of history.
24 May 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: Oh geeze, Russia, you are a riot.
24 May 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: While Russian dominance is inevitable, it will not be built on the back of Italian cooperation. The British will have to sole distinction of being Russian lapdogs.
25 May 20 UTC Spring, 1907: The Death Star approaches.
25 May 20 UTC Spring, 1907: Good game everyone.
25 May 20 UTC Congratulations on your solo Badrox.
Let this be a valuable learning experience to everyone.
1. Badrox lies, like, alot. Like, recreationally.
2. If someone is close to a solo, don't side with that guy against everyone else.
3. Always trust Thomas Brown.
4. Never draw to an inside straight.
25 May 20 UTC Good game and congrats to Badrox.

I know Thomas Brown lies, so #3 must be a lie. ;)
25 May 20 UTC three truths and one lie.
