21 May 20 UTC Spring, 1902: Hey all, heads up that it's a holiday weekend here in the US. Since everything is still locked down, I imagine that I'll be pretty responsive, but if I'm slow in getting back to you, please don't take offense. :-)
21 May 20 UTC Spring, 1902: Thanks for letting us all know :-)
26 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.

27 May 20 UTC Spring, 1903: Hi there guys!! Assumed Russia to keep this game going... Russia embassy is open for everybody who want to have a good ally!
28 May 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: Can we please pause this game until Sunday? I am going out of town for the next two days, and I don't know whether I will have an Internet connection when I arrive at my rural destination.
29 May 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: Ok for me...

29 May 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: Hi all, new Austria there! I'll try to read all the press, but I would appreciate if you can send me some summaries.
29 May 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: Also, there's more chaos going on by 1903 than I ever saw.
29 May 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: If we all vote unpause now, France can unpause the game whenever he's ready so we don't have to wait for anyone
29 May 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: Agreed.
02 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: Italy and Turkey??
02 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: It’s just Italy left now.
02 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: If two units bounce in a province, is it possible for a third unit to retreat to that province during the Retreats turn?
02 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: no
03 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: * asking for help friend ;-)
03 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: for a friend... so much for my joke
03 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: it's ok, i still think it's funny ;)
03 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: It's actually a question I had about another current Diplomacy game of mine. I would not have asked it in this game's Global Chat if it had pertained to this game.

12 Jun 20 UTC Spring, 1906: Sure!
15 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: Okay I am back
16 Jun 20 UTC I voted draw, Russia and England left.
16 Jun 20 UTC Good game, guys!
16 Jun 20 UTC Good luck in your games, everyone.
16 Jun 20 UTC GG guys... Austria... thank you for your loyalty!!
16 Jun 20 UTC gg guys
16 Jun 20 UTC @Russia, you don't know the half of it, I put on a pretty hard sell ;-)
16 Jun 20 UTC As I have explained already, this is calculation, not loyalty.
In short, your armies in the right place at a right time were worth more than the armies I could get from stabbing you and then waste time moving into the right place.
16 Jun 20 UTC England is right, I seriously considered a stab on you at least twice, in autumn 1903 and in 1906 but an alliance was, by a small margin, more profitable.
17 Jun 20 UTC I am surprised that you guys did not turn on each other once Germany and I were dead. Four countries is unusually large for a draw in my opinion, and I expected it to turn into a 2 vs 2 once it was just the four of you left.
17 Jun 20 UTC I agree it's large for a draw. I wouldn't say unusually large, but it's also rather early for a draw. But it was pretty clear from the press that instead of 2 vs 2, it was 3 vs 1, so I wasn't going to try to push my luck!
17 Jun 20 UTC I have to say I was pretty tempted to stab Austria
17 Jun 20 UTC I was tempted to stab anyone in my reach, but this would leave me open to E/G or, later, give England an opportunity to win.
I think I was in most danger of being stabbed because of not really bordering England, so I was glad to push for a draw as soon as reasonable.
17 Jun 20 UTC hahaha... I was really afraid of you stabbing me Austria
You had the chance, but i agree with you: if you had stabbed me, England would have the chance to get a solo...
;-)
17 Jun 20 UTC I wasn't really afraid of being stabbed except for one time Italy moved towards me in spring 1904, but in hindsight I might have been the most, if not the only, convenient target for further reducing draw size.
