77 4/30/2019 7:43:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message I am terribly sorry that things ended up this way. There was a problem with a project I am involved at work and right after Easter break I had to focus on it. Consencuentlly I put on hold all of my free time activities. Anyway the worst is past me.

I know that I should have informed you of my constraints and I understand your iritation and why you would prefer to end this game.

As far as I can tell the worst has past and for the following two three months I should be easly able to play daily.

I will leave this game open for three more days. If you are willing to give this game a last chance we can continue. If you prefer to end I will shut it down, no hard fellings.

Thank you for an interesting game.
76 4/27/2019 2:49:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Allies Message Taschu, we still have this game open in ACTS and only you can close it out. Sorry things didn't work out.
75 4/25/2019 10:12:00 AM May-Aug 1942 Allies Message Marek, I'm sorry, but I'm going to have to drop out of this game. The wait time is just too long.

74 4/18/2019 12:37:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Allies Message Okay, take your time.

73 4/18/2019 12:11:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message Hopefully we do. I'm sorry for going silent. I will have some trouble with posting moves till after Easter, as the holidays did increase the number of my home responsibilities temporarly. The fact that I have to think through the next turn now makes it harder to squize it in between chores.
72 4/17/2019 11:12:00 AM May-Aug 1942 Allies Message Do we still have a game going. Last thing I did was to draw my 6 cards and 1 Pass for Turn 3.

If you're busy with something else, then the game can wait - I'll still be here.

71 4/11/2019 12:21:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Allies Message Disregard that last message.
