Broadcasts for Game Over
|The Fall turn has been processed. There were two retreats. germany
and Italy both had only one place to go with their retreat so I took the
liberty of retreating those two myself. Turkey though gained three
centers this year placing him at 19. This game ends with Turkey the
it was fun managing you guys throughout this game and I hope you will
all want to play again on one of my games. i will be getting one up in
September so check back then.
I will work on getting this game's results on to the DIPLOMACY
There was not much press in this game but you are now free to read
everyone's. There was some in the beginning but it died out towards the
|Well that was rediculous. I don't understand why France was so intent
on losing the game along with the rest of us. We could have had a 5
way draw. Oh well, you can only play with what you're given, and
apparently Scott wasn't given a whole lot upstairs.
|There was at no time any chance of a five-way tie. So stop being
disingenuous. Italy was toast because Turkey was too powerful. France
was toast because I was facing both Germany and England. If I was
going to lose, I was going to try to take you two down with me. You
created the situation why whine about it?
So spare me your silly public tantrums and spare me the personal
attacks. Would you just have rolled over?
|I had the stalemate in the north if you hadn't interfered. England was
about to get there in the south. I don't understand where the
impossibility of a 5 way comes in. Italy didn't matter. You didn't
matter. Turkey was stuck if you hadn't supported him.
And I'm not sure how I deserved your aggression. I never really
attacked you all game. Besides the fact that you didn't want me in
Belgium (which I stayed out of the first year as per our agreement) I'm
not sure how I played against you at all. I was never in Burgundy. I
was never in Picardy. Please explain this to me. I'd love to be
Now that I've read all the press, I'd have to say it was a pretty amusing
game. If Turkey hadn't have dominated the board I think there would still
be a three-way war in the West. You have to admit that the press was
Why would you settle for a five-way?
|.. when a three-way was easily attainable and you would score better?
Germany and England would have eventually eliminated France. Turkey
was about to eliminate Italy.
Since for me elimination = a loss --> why would I want to take a loss
alone when I could bring you guys down as well.
Yes, I have since read most of the press since my last broadcast, and it
pretty much confirms what I said. France would not have survived to any
Your insistence on Belgium from the beginning marked you as an
aggressive player. Sure, there was nothing either England or I could do
about it, but it created a level of suspicion from the very beginning. The
press confirmed those suspicions as well. Russia was self-destructive
and Austria was non-communicative. All I had left to work with was
England and you pretty much had him sewn up.
The diplomacy you executed was brilliant. However, tactically, you
should have moved to eliminate me sooner. I was rather surprised to live
long enough to be a spoiler.
|This was my first win in one of these games. Usually I am taken out by
Aaron pretty early, but with him being on the other side of the world in
this one I knew it was my chance.
If Russia or Austria had put up any kind of fight at all in the beginning I
would have been in trouble. I could see early on the England was
working with Germany and knowing the kind of player that Aaron is
(which is very smart and convincing) I knew I had to move early to get
some power before the two of us met up.
I had warned france early on about that combo up north, and he was in
a tough situation. His only real chance was teaming up with Italy. I
couldn't get to him in time to be of any real help, but I was thankful of
his honesty towards turkey early on. If the game had continued I would
not have attacked France, instead focusing my forces on holding back
England and taking over Germany. But it was fun, especially in the
beginning, and I know how lucky I was to win. Thanks for the game
A monkey could have won that game
|Not to take anything away from you, you did play a good game, but a
monkey could have won that game as turkey. Austria and Russia
played suicide, so you had 8 units in 1901 and no one except Italy
could do anything about it, and lets be honest, there was nothing he
could really have done at that point anyways.
I now take back my original comments about Scott. I've read the press
and understand why things shaped up the way they did. I still honestly
wish I could have gotten through to him. The entire game I wanted to
ally with France against England, but we could never jive. Before you
knew it, Turkey was running away with the game and I was forced to
build armies. By that time an FG vs E was out of the question and I
needed England to take out France so that I didn't have to worry about
that end of the board.
Honestly Scott, it was you I wanted to ally with. As Germany I will
never trust England. Ever. It's too easy for England to stab Germany.
I'm sorry I caused so much friction by wanting Belgium so much. I still
don't see how that's really such a big threat.
Well, that's pretty much all I have to say about that game. Good game
Turkey, although you would have to be a pretty terrible player to not
have won it.
