25 Dec 10 UTC Spring, 1902: yeah, and I'm confused why they played for such high stakes if that was the case, but there's a bunch of such "gunboat" games on this site.
25 Dec 10 UTC Spring, 1902: Merry Christmas Everyone!
25 Dec 10 UTC Spring, 1902: "No press" games are tactics exercises. Diplomacy is conducted through orders, so you have to learn to read between lines. They're entertaining and take a lot less work...

I've put in a vote for a Pause, since I don't think I'll be able to put much time in for the next week.
26 Dec 10 UTC Spring, 1902: re: a pause, I don't need to do that, but happy to make sure this runs smoother and put the whole thing on pause, including messaging, if we can restart next weekend.
26 Dec 10 UTC Spring, 1902: ok alex when you're back online next weekend and want to unpause, email everyone.
01 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1902: I'm back in action.
01 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1902: happy new year from NYC!
02 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1902: Hey guys, happy new year! I'm mostly recovered from the Beijing new year's eve and back in action too.
02 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1902: Happy New Year from SF, I rung in the new year singing Don't Fear the Reaper on Rockband.. More Cowbell!!
04 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1902: GF is dishshopping online and asked me if the purple dish color reminds me of Russia.
04 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1902: When I drank pepo bismo the other day, it reminded me of England, no joke.
05 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1902: It's better than Austria's mauve, which reminds me of the hotel curtains one finds in second-tier hotels/motels across the USA.
10 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1903: Hi all, looks like everyone's orders are in, but of course not necessarily finalized. But I'll go green if you will.
11 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 1903: Well, that was dramatic on all fronts. Nice work on continuing the 1903 reversal of fortune all!
16 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1904: Hey guys, competition goes in some time between tomorrow and Wednesday, so I'm still checking the game - too much, probably, in fact - but apologies if my replies are late and/or laconic. Emerging to the waking world by Wednesday is the theory. Wish us luck!
16 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1904: good luck!
25 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: I have to put a total moratorium on writing diplomacy messages at work. It's too distracting for me - I end up checking all day to see if someone replied. I'm small fry now, so it doesn't much matter - but will more for next game.
26 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: I salute greg- he fought valiantly and treacherously, and I'm sure he will find a way to stab me from the diplomacy afterlife.
26 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: stab me awesomely, that is.
26 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: I salute Greg too. He tried to bargain for yet another Italian invasion of Trieste (the fourth in the game), but it was too little too late. He'll always have the championship ring from the last game.
26 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: I love the Trieste... thanks for freeing up my nights and weekends, my wife thanks you too..
26 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: good game all. except france.
26 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1906: Well, a salute to Italy - I think I was the one neighbor who never exchanged a stab with him either way. Tuscany, Tyrolia and Apulia will honor your memory. And sorry Mark, I know France is more popular across Savoy than across the Channel - hopefully next game we'll be Austria and Germany and not Austria and Italy.
28 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1906: I feel like there's something I need to be checking on, but there really isn't...
28 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1906: For those interested in the origins of this game's color scheme, here's the 1971 board:

http://cgi.ebay.com/Diplomacy-Board-Game-Philmar-Int-Div1971-boxed-complete-/180618073425?pt=UK_Toys_Games_Games&hash=item2a0dad1551

You have to scroll down to see the board. I just wish this one had all of the graphic doodads like the camels in NAF or the hot air balloon over Moscow.
28 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1906: indeed, the hot air balloon is a missing piece of my arsenal. that would be a useful unit to assist a convoy to NAF.
28 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1906: is there any chance that I'm secretly in control of Trieste?
28 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1906: Russia appears to have some sort of tractor or car in Sevastapol. Mechanized infantry!
28 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1906: Russia appears to have some sort of tractor or car in Sevastapol. Mechanized infantry!
31 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1907: Now that I can look at this image closer, there are the following fearsome weapons:
*What appears to be a formal dance in BUD
*A Hookah-smoking Turk in SYR
*John Bull shaking his fist at what appears to be a group of british navy peons in NRTH
*A merry Italian gondolier in ION
31 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1907: The Gondolier has been evicted from ION. They're now smoking hookahs in the Central Med.
31 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1907: By the way, I'd like to extend a salute to England. He got the short end of the stick from the first Channel bounce but fought well against constant French aggression. Here's hoping he's not immediately betrayed in game 3!
31 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1907: hear, hear! john bull fought well into 1906 despite being under double attack for most of the time!
31 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1907: despite valiant efforts, i folded in the end. it comes quickly ones the shell is cracked. i suggest turkey utilize italy as a jannisary to take france from the south. it works every time. unless there is no italy.
31 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1907: Heh. I suppose I will have to make due with Turkish crewed navies as opposed to Italian Jannisaries.
Pro: fewer sun burns
Cons: more smelly
31 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1907: Kudos to both England and Italy. They fought to the end against superior numbers.
10 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1908: So it's weird, I have the same screen I had a while ago - England's online but no one else, and no one's entered orders. Is it the same for all of you guys?
10 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1908: On my screen, I"m winning and it's super awesome.
13 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1909: So guys, interestingly I'm voting for Draw now. Unless we have some dramatic reversals of allegiance I think the stalemate line's pretty solid. Guess we can take this year and evaluate but that's my prediction. If nothing else, Mark will be glad it's resolved, ha.
13 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1909: The simmering resistance in Yorkshire could turn the tide.
13 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1909: Dude. I'd worry more about Clyde. Haven't you seen braveheart?
13 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1909: Shhh. (I don't want F NAO to notice)
13 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1909: Hmm, the troublesome Clydesdales (?). May need to do something about them. I get Iceland too if I invade, right?
14 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1909: You bastard!
16 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 1909: Ha, sorry Mark, I didn't notice from the pink that it was you with Clyde - seems like more aggressive if you're talking about taking over someone's former territory. Promise I'll leave you Yorkshire. I did get Iceland though - not bad.
16 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 1909: I'm voting for a draw, I don't think the T/A alliance will break through the stalemate line.
16 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 1909: heh. certainly not without russian help.
16 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 1909: No help was in the offing last turn. I don't see that changing ...
16 Feb 11 UTC Ha Haaaa! We have finally occupied those filthy Latvian-Estonian barbarians.

Also: draw.
16 Feb 11 UTC Just voted for the draw.
