That's just downright communist of you, Kimber. I know you won't accept anything without everybody included, but it's dangerously close to infringing upon my rights to freedoms of speech and expression to deny me the ability to propose a draw I know will be rejected. As an american, I can't think of a more American thing to do then make a futile and useless attempt at peace, unless it's make a futile and useless attempt at peace while shotgunning a Sam Adams, wearing a denim cut off vest, eating apple pie, with the national anthem playing in the background and a Bald Eagle flying overhead with a Flag in it's talons. But short of that, a futile and useless effort at peace is also a good way to go ;)

And if there's one thing even Europeans can agree on, it's that Communists might be evil, but damned if they don't make some good kids toys.





Obviously this was in jest. If you're familiar with Stephen Colbert, picture him saying it and it makes a lot more sense :)

I say no to DIAS but it's not a big deal for me. Like it is for someone else. ^^^^^^

Well, if Nanook is in, how can I say no? Count me in, if there's room.

I think that gives us seven, no?

Britney, Kimber, mcboyes, stobco, me until I die, alcester, and BS. Unless I am a slightly worse counter than I thought, that's seven.

Don't forget to put a password on the game when you create it, Brit :)

I'm already looking forward to losing this game too!

I kind of agree with this idea. I think there is some serious diplomacy behind suggestion draws that maybe you don't even WANT to go through, as a way to influence the board. Therefore, I think non-DIAS is more interesting, especially if Kimber won't accept it ever, ha. ;)

I do like having some amount of (imagined) control what country I am, yes. Although given my luck, I'll probably end up as Germany anyways. My response was silly, but there are legitimate reasons behind it too, as Britney alluded to. And one of them is the possibility of driving Kimber mildly insane ;)
