Another game in Turkey

From Conrad Woodring :
Sunday March 30th, 2008
Another game of Escalation. Was going to be a full seven but a certain Berna Dogu slept in and missed the game. Anyway thanks to Alper and Arda for coming. Arda is going to the army so we won't see much of him for a while but Alper will be a regular I think. As usual, Erman, Izzy and I refused to cooperate and ended up killing each other.

Conrad Woodring proposes a motion for the affiliation of the Turkey to the EDA.
