Game won by dtgildea (117 D)
06 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 1902: As would Germany's fellow Third Reich buddy, Austria.
06 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 1902: This all seems very out of character for you guys...
06 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 1902: I don't know if I should feel threatened or thank you.
07 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 1902: both.
07 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 1902: and let's keep it to a dull roar there, Anne Frank.
15 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 1903: this seems to be an exceptionally long turn...
15 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 1903: Strongly agree
16 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 1903: YAWN....
16 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 1903: Can't we get back to the treachery already?
16 Dec 10 UTC Spring, 1904: Some of us have jobs that actually require us to do stuff all day...
16 Dec 10 UTC Spring, 1904: Duhhhhhh, hence the 2 day turns!
17 Dec 10 UTC Spring, 1904: This coming from the person who listens to audiobooks all day at work? And reads forums and who knows what else...
17 Dec 10 UTC Spring, 1904: "All Day" is a gross overstatement.
18 Dec 10 UTC Spring, 1904: Certainly a much greater period of the day than I have time for...
26 Dec 10 UTC Spring, 1905: This seems appropriate:

29 Dec 10 UTC Spring, 1905: Has Turkey simply bailed on the game?
29 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 1905: Well, he's been booted now, so we won't have to wait for him to not play at least...
29 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 1905: I know he's in San Fran to see his family for Christmas.

How does the booting work? Is it just a computer now?
29 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 1905: No, his units all just hold. If you miss two consecutive turns, it counts you as leaving. If he checks back in, I think it lets him rejoin, but if we all ready-up it'll advance without his doing.

Given what was already happening to him, I would not say it's a big deal that he missed the last phase. He was boned either way I think.
31 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 1905: Fascinating that France is always confirming his orders long before the rest of us..

hmmm...
31 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 1905: It's easier to do my orders when everybody is attacking me...
31 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 1905: You could just wave the white flag, at least it would be historically accurate.
31 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 1905: No, america is totally gonna save my ass once the Lucitania is sunk!
03 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1906: Give it 9 years and I'll send some troops over to sing Christmas carols and play football with those Germans.
04 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1906: Okay. Game help needed. Why was my army booted from Wales to London when it was supported?
What is the rule that I am missing here?
04 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: Edinbourough (however you spelled it) cut your support
04 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: With help from the Norwegian Sea
04 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: or actually the other way around
05 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: I didn't even realize that could happen.

Damn these rules!!!
05 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: interestingly enough.... I believe Hitler said the very same thing.
05 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: Don't worry, he's busy being denied from art school about now, I think.
05 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: Does anyone know if Hitler, after he came to power, hunted down the admission department from that art school and have terrible things done to them? That kind of seems his kind of crazy.
05 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: Hey, can Italy or Germany pls support Marseilles into Switzerland? Thx.
06 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: Welp, Italy made us look like chumps...
06 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1907: Nah. I'm pretty sure I've got this
07 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1907: Go man go!
07 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1907: So, as this game appears to be coming to an end soon, either by draw if we can pull our crap together in the north, or by Italy's win, are y'all up for another game? Italy (I forget your real name), do you know if Dr. Beaver wants to try again? Are y'all back at the house, or still on break?

Also, anybody have any good ideas for a new game name? I'm running out of stupid things to call it...
08 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1907: DiplomaSEE
08 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1907: :golfclap: Thank you sir
09 Jan 11 UTC Dr. Beaver, OBGYN/Love Doctor is in for the next game.

10 Jan 11 UTC Should I go ahead and make the new game? Or should I wait a bit longer?
10 Jan 11 UTC wait
10 Jan 11 UTC Aight
10 Jan 11 UTC Okay, now should I create it?
10 Jan 11 UTC Yes, create! Then DESTROY!
10 Jan 11 UTC Are you going to send out the new game information once you've got it up and running?
10 Jan 11 UTC Of course. I also sent an email in case people don't check here
11 Jan 11 UTC What's the new game info?
