11 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1905: Almost 24h without seeing Russia...
Anybody else hearing the baby cries?
11 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1905: Hi guys, did you miss me? :) If you're wondering where I was for the
past 24 hours... No baby yet! Instead I was swiftly and suddenly put
on Diplomacy probation yesterday at around 11. Something about
spending way too much time on the game and having another child on the
way. Negotations are still pending, but it looks like my allowed time
will be very limited, say 30 minutes per day (a geometric mean of
sorts between "always on" and "never on"). So I will no longer have
time for detailed plans and complicated double-crossings.
11 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1905: You can tell I wrote this message before I logged in, because it's formatted weirdly. :) I was worried that there would be a furious backlash of angry messages that I'd have to respond to, but that didn't happen.
11 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: You gotta set priorities. Leadership in the war vs. new baby. I know which carries more prestige.
11 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: I don't want to say which has more prestige, but I hear babies throw up a lot.
12 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: Depends on the baby.... perhaps you'll be one of the lucky ones with a baby who has a cast-iron stomach.
12 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: Of course it has to come out somewhere, so watch out when changing diapers!
13 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: game on.
13 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: Red zone baby.
14 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: France and Turkey last logged out at the same time... I bet it is a trick... They let us all thing that they gave-up, then when we are not looking, BANG!
14 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: I say we ally against them! Before they get us!
15 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: Okay! You distract them by leaving your home centers open and the rest of us will take their centers. :)
15 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: And yours too.
15 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: "You" / "us" / "yours" Who is you, us and yours here?
15 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: "You" and "yours" refers to Italy, the one who made a comment just before mine. "Us" refers to everyone but France and Turkey, against whom Italy suggested "we" ally. Not clear enough?
15 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: The same "we" that England was referring to.... Why can Italy and England use generic pronouns and I can't? :(
15 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: Or was your comment to everyone who posted in the past 4 messages.
15 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: I'm building a baby in Montreal (Russia)....
15 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: "Why can Italy and England use generic pronouns and I can't? :(" From my understanding, England and Italy's "us" included EIRA and "them" was for FT. You got me confused because your "you" was clearly not for FT but I was wondering if it included EA.
16 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: True England's home centers are open, but nobody can take them. Whereas France can take Venice if he wants to. So Italy is the best distraction for France.
16 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: I suppose France might be distracted by an open Trieste as well....
17 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: France will be distracted by the brains I wave in front of him. <Brains!>
So juicy! <Brains!>
He'll probably forget about the lack of brains over in Venice.
17 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1906: I think this is it! But don't pause, just finish the game!

If I don't log in for a few days, you'll know it's for real. :)
18 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1906: Good luck!
18 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1906: Game on, yo!
18 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1906: Is he an army or a fleet?
19 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1906: That was fun.
19 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1906: Yes, it was real! I have a healthy happy baby boy! 6 lbs 15 ozs....
19 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1906: <cheer> Congratz! smoke a blue cigar for me.
20 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1906: Congrats to the Tsar and the Tsarine!
20 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1906: Thanks everyone!
20 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1906: Right now he doesn't like water so much, so I guess he's an army. That will probably change, though.
20 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1906: hear!hear!
20 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1906: Once again, I have learned quite a bit from this game. I read a few threads on the forum on this site and got some good ideas there too. There's a winter master's class going on that has some analysis of moves that was cool to read. Of course, more than half the game happens in the messages, so it would be great to have the time to read through everyone's private messages just once to see the level of "crazy-like-a-fox" that everyone has.
Not that I've given up on this game yet, but it does look like the hands just have to play out.
20 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1906: Look, after turkey and france are gone, let's just call it a draw.
It's in everyone's best interests here.
21 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: :)
21 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: I say we give it one more year, just to see how things turn out. ;)
21 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: "There's a winter master's class going on that has some analysis of moves that was cool to read." Sorry, are you saying there are classes on Diplomacy at your school?!
21 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: Negative, there's a class going on posted on the forum of this webDip site. Click the forum tab up top. they've got the links to two games with analysis from two people who aren't playing (they're the "professors" for the master's class).
21 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: http://webdiplomacy.net/forum.php?viewthread=672851#672851
21 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: They're only two turns in but we'll see what happens.
23 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: So, Looks like an Italian/Turkish destructive rampage is about to happen. Don't say I didn't warn you. Turkey and I have agreed to demilitarize Greece and destroy anything that's not greece. Prepare for destruction.
23 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: Oops, France wasn't supposed to make it either.... I guess Austria expected you to move into Vienna, Italy.
23 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: Good game, everyone, by the way.
23 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: (Russia)
23 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: Sorry I had to run out early.
24 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: Much respect to all.
26 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1907: gg everyone
28 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: Good game everyone. It was a pleasure!
31 Jan 11 UTC No cool star this time....
