thehouseofpip If it weren't for this sign, I doubt travelling penguins, koalas and kangaroos would know how to use an escalator. Good work #melair #melbourneairport 19h

thehouseofpip Europe: 1901. The start of an epic 8.5 hour game of #Diplomacy. What did I learn? Some countries just get bored and decide to be arseholes. Some countries have no choice but to be friendly to anyone who is being friendly to them. It sucks to be Austro-Hungaria (both in real life and the game). Don't trust your brother and/or Italians. Being landlocked in Europe is a tough gig. Even though Europe's not enormous, you don't give a crap about what's going on in France if Turkey and Russia are looking your way. Bursting into tears 2.5 hours in can oddly work in your favour. Epic shot thanks to @Paulwillfixit L-R: Austro-Hungaria, England, Germany, Italy, Turkey, Russia, France 1w
  •   bobwright80 I cant wait to play that game again. Apologies again for the backstabbing and generally being italian about things. 1w
  •   thehouseofpip @bobwright80 I hit the Diplomacy message boards to check what my strategy for Austria should have been and they pretty much said don't ever partner with Turkey, try and convince Italy that they need an alliance with you (but they won't believe you, AHEM) and hope that Russia wants to partner. 1w

thehouseofpip So much in this: a defeated Austro-Hungarian in her tartan skirt, opera coat and beret-fedora, clutching her tuxedo cat, while taking a selfie and checking the photo of her and her tuxedo cat just taken by her French-victor boyfriend. 1w
