23 Jul 12 UTC Autumn, 2001: [Brazil]:Hey all -- new Brazil here!
06 Aug 12 UTC Autumn, 2004: [China]:Welcome Brazil. I'm about to die, but I wish you well.
07 Aug 12 UTC Spring, 2005: [Brazil]:That's ok, my game-long ally just stabbed me in the back. I may join you soon.
11 Aug 12 UTC Autumn, 2006: [Quebec]:Hey all, good idea: if we draw now, we'll all still earn a bit!
11 Aug 12 UTC Autumn, 2006: [Quebec]:Cheeky huh?;)
15 Aug 12 UTC Autumn, 2007: GameMaster: callumisamazing was banned: multi. The time until the next phase has been extended by one phase length to give an opportunity to replace the player.
Remember to finalize your orders if you don't want to wait, so the game isn't held up unnecessarily!
15 Aug 12 UTC Autumn, 2007: [Brazil]:Great -- so now he's stuck in Union, which he was going to move out of. Awesome :(
27 Aug 12 UTC Autumn, 2010: [Oz]:sad that this world war might be decided on because somebody misses turns
04 Sep 12 UTC Autumn, 2012: [Brazil]:Did you just convoy from Antarctica to Japan? That's awesome :)
04 Sep 12 UTC Autumn, 2012: [India]:Foxy move there, my cold southern nemesis!
05 Sep 12 UTC Autumn, 2012: [Oz]:seemed like a good suprise at the time. I thought it would provide me with some good options but just limited those options in reality.
06 Sep 12 UTC Autumn, 2012: [India]:Well then you are welcome to convoy him out of there!
09 Sep 12 UTC Autumn, 2013: [Ghana]:ouch!!
india stabs russia....wow
09 Sep 12 UTC Autumn, 2013: [Oz]:yea that is definitely an interesting battle plan
11 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 2014: [India]:Wow it's gone quiet in here. Everyone must be busy conspiring against the bloody Indians! A shift in power was needed. Message me if interested.
11 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 2014: [Brazil]:Games always get a little more quiet once powers get consolidated. People know their relationships to other countries (or think they do), they know who their allies are (or think they do), they have their plans set for mid-game (or think they do), and they're in the process of enacting them.

That said, I'd be glad to ally with you, India. Let me know if there's anything I can do to help :D
11 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 2014: [India]:Thanks B. Just cut across Africa and jump on in where you see an opening!
11 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 2014: [Brazil]:Look out, Ghana, I'm comin' through!
11 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 2014: [Ghana]:I dont know about you guys but I'm talkin up a storm over here.
just not dumb enough to do it all in global ;-)
11 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 2014: [Brazil]:Haha -- but global's where all the cool kids hang out!

Honestly, I've got nothing else to do. I'm pretty much Western Canada's bitch through and through, so I may as well have some fun til I'm out :) Unless someone else thinks they can get me into my home SCs? :P
11 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 2014: [Ghana]:lol...i gave it a shot man
12 Sep 12 UTC Autumn, 2014: [China]:Did I miss a turn somewhere?
17 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 2016: [Brazil]:Man, with as many NMRs and CDs as this game has had (and now two more this round, Russia and India), I think those of us still live should just draw this up. Thoughts?
17 Sep 12 UTC Autumn, 2016: [Western-Canada]:i am OK with that, once russia/india have CD'd, and argentina is eliminated.
17 Sep 12 UTC Autumn, 2016: [Argentina]::(
19 Sep 12 UTC Autumn, 2016: [Oz]:I give russia props for not backing out like a bitch as his allies did. he is fighting till the death. RESPECT!!!
i would include him in the draw if it is ok with you guys even though he was the enemy 90% of the game
19 Sep 12 UTC Autumn, 2016: [Oz]:even once his biggest ally backstabbed him. that pretty much ended the game
19 Sep 12 UTC Autumn, 2016: [Brazil]:I'm clearly fine with drawing at 6 (WestCan, Kenya, Ghana, Oz, Russia, myself). I don't know that I necessarily deserve a spot, and after being absent two turns in a row I definitely don't think that India does either.
19 Sep 12 UTC Autumn, 2016: [Western-Canada]:i am ok with russia getting in on things
19 Sep 12 UTC Autumn, 2016: [Western-Canada]:I'd also like to keep Brazil in it until the end. He is certainly not the most powerful force on the board currently, but he has been active throughout the entire game and certainly helped the alliance that was formed by most of the remaining nations. Ghana, please leave Recife untouched.
19 Sep 12 UTC Autumn, 2016: [Kenya]:All right, I'm more than ok with all that. Six way it is.
19 Sep 12 UTC Autumn, 2016: [Oz]:that leaves taking armenia bejing and korea
19 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 2017: [Oz]:kenya can you support shaghi to beijing and russia dont attack korea
19 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 2017: [Kenya]:Ok, but move Bombay to Clc, just in case.
19 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 2017: [Oz]:Done
20 Sep 12 UTC Autumn, 2017: [Oz]:bounce at clc again?
20 Sep 12 UTC Autumn, 2017: [Kenya]:No need, but thanks
22 Sep 12 UTC [Brazil]:Awesome game all -- glad I lived to see the end of the game.
22 Sep 12 UTC [Oz]:yea this was a good game.
22 Sep 12 UTC [Brazil]:Now we all draw, yes, and go home with 3x the points we put into this game?
23 Sep 12 UTC [Western-Canada]:Ghana, you are refusing to draw?
23 Sep 12 UTC [Western-Canada]:Ghana, I have told you this in private, but so everyone else knows...
If we make it through this phase because you haven't put up draw, I will consider our alliance defunct.
24 Sep 12 UTC [Ghana]:Just because someone doesnt fold up the tents and cd doesnt earn them a draw.

I'll draw, but I think this is a disgusting way to end a game; and I'd appreciate it if you would all make a point of not joining any games I am in in the future. The tag is Macchiavelli.

kenya, oz - good game
brazil, russia - you just got a freebie
canada - I am sorely tempted to NOT draw just so i could eliminate you, as you deserve
24 Sep 12 UTC [Kenya]:Ok guys, let's take deep breath here...

A little while back, Oz suggested Russia's inclusion on our draw, to show the guy some respect for fighting till the end. I said I was ok with that, and so did Canada, I believe. Ghana, however, never showed the same interest. Although (as I just said) I have no problems with a 6 way draw, I do believe that this (somewhat controversial) decision should be unanimous to become official (which is why I've been helping Ghana on his advances; sorry Russia). I see why Canada might be upset (I really do), but I wouldn't take things so far as to raise arms against Ghana. I do believe he is going to hit the draw button as soon as Russia is eliminated.

I have no desire to fight any of you, so I'll ask you guys this: can we (please, please, please) resolve this as gentlemen? I'm more than happy with the prospect of our gains, and would surely hate to see it risked in a fray against my own allies.

So, what do you say?
24 Sep 12 UTC [Kenya]:Well that was a waste of my typing, hehe
24 Sep 12 UTC [Brazil]:The sentiment was still appreciated, Kenya. Good game all -- hope to play you all again.
24 Sep 12 UTC [Oz]:6 way draw is a little much but once you have over 4 then why does it even matter anymore. maybe if i was fighting russia the entire game i would have not had as much sympathy. plus i wanted to piss india off because of his huge dick move
