Dear All,
Thanks to you, I love this game.  It's starting to feel like the needed counterpart to chess:  first play the man, then play the board (Do people do post-mortems of diplomacy games?  I imagine that might involve too much profanity and not enough variations / lines...not that I am all that good at chess either!).

Anyhow, it was great fun and I hope that no one was too irked by my play (especially not Mr. Pedicini).  I definitely got a handle of how the game should flow from the great players and GM in this game.  I look forward to being a future ally, adversary, or <gulp> fodder.  No matter what, I will try to make it fun.

To those I may have seemed to cross, I apologize.  I had to look out for the people of Austria.  Let's be honest, our egos have sucked since Austerlitz.  And we both know that whatever I may have did, you saw coming way before I did it.

Most importantly, Tsar Tim, the check arrived yesterday and cleared today!!!!  Who knew dip games could be a such a good source of supplementary income in this era?!!

Best, Ross

Hi all:
That was good game!
I would like to thank our first time GM who did a kick ass job and made it possible.
When I ask myself what was the most memorable thing about our game I always think about poor England who ended the first year with enemy fleets in the channel and the north sea and a German army in yorkshire. This had to be the worst start I have EVER seen for England!

Even though this game is called diplomacy, the Prime Minister almost refused to engage in it and France too for that matter. Between those two I got 10 words in response max. Hats off to the Kaiser and the king of Italy who fought a good fight and played it out to the end. Apoligies to the Sultan who I think I could have worked well with. And of course thanks to the ArchDuke whose support made victory possible(he he). Seriously this was Ross's first game and I think he is going to have some great games in store for him.

Anyway thanks again all and I hope to face you all again.
Tim.
Tsar of all Russia.

Hey everyone,
 
Sorry for the delay. Long day yesterday. We have reached the end, after 20 years of play, the Russians have taken half of the SCs and have become the champions. Congratulations Tim, and thanks everyone else for playing. You can reply to this or go on the DC280 forum and talk about the finish and anything. It was a great first GM experience, and I hope to run into you all again in the future!
