14 Aug 13 UTC Spring, 1995: Yeah, I mean this is my first time in this map, but it all seems so wonky. Turkey for example easily gets access to many supplies whereas Egypt can, at best, can get 2 when it already starts with 3. I think the designer overestimates the value of being on one side of the map. Similarly, that Gibraltar situations is just weird because it will almost always force a wedge between England and Spain from the get-go. Anyway just my take. Not saying I won't have fun playing.
14 Aug 13 UTC Spring, 1995: actually you can get 3.
14 Aug 13 UTC Spring, 1995: You mean by taking from you? :-P I meant neutrals.
14 Aug 13 UTC Spring, 1995: Chiro could of moved to Red Sea and take Saudi .
14 Aug 13 UTC Spring, 1995: The map suffers from the same problem most of the variants have -- the creator of the map tried a bit too hard to force interaction and conflict over SCs, rather than letting it happen naturally. It results in a bit of a cluttered map (look at the original map and you'll see how few locations touch 0-1 SC) and a clustered start, rather than the more streamlined and strategic openings of the original. Still, coming from a 3-SC starter, I find this map very fun and interesting to play, especially given the build-anywhere feature.
14 Aug 13 UTC Spring, 1995: I think Italy has the most advantage country.
You can get Austria Croatia. Swiz. Serbia Greece and Tunisia
14 Aug 13 UTC Spring, 1995: I was Italy and I got Austria Tunisia Croatia and Serbia in my 1st 2 turns.
14 Aug 13 UTC Spring, 1995: Does anyone know if Sin -> Saudi is possible? Looks not, and the variant site has no info related to that. Want to know my options though.
14 Aug 13 UTC Spring, 1995: Opening the larger version of the map can sometimes help with these odd boundaries -- the map is drawn differently, and while all the connections are the same, some are easier to distinguish on one map vs. the other.

Sinai armies can move to Cairo, Jordan, and Israel (or be convoyed via Red Sea), and fleets can move to Cairo, Jordan, and Red Sea. No direct connection to Saudi.
14 Aug 13 UTC Spring, 1995: Sin -> Saudi No.
14 Aug 13 UTC Spring, 1995: Chiro can move to Red Sea or Eastern med. Why I said to move red sea to get 3 builds.
14 Aug 13 UTC Spring, 1995: Aahh. Durn. Wish I had known that. Oh well, live and learn.
14 Aug 13 UTC Spring, 1995: I didn't know until I took it over as Italy.
16 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1995: This sure seems like a interesting ally battle...
E F I R maybe allies?
16 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1995: ...are we looking at the same map?
16 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1995: Take the I out of that.
16 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1995: From what I can tell, everyone on the map is against Italy.
17 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1995: Beware of the treacherous backstab from the Polish. An evil nation, no question.
18 Aug 13 UTC Spring, 1996: Evil? Maybe just opportunistic?
18 Aug 13 UTC Spring, 1996: Pure evil. Beware, Polish allies. An opportunistic nation is a backstabbing nation!
19 Aug 13 UTC Spring, 1996: Guess Ukraine decided you were right. He chose Turkey, and now we see how I can recover. And who wants to fight Ukraine/Turkey.
19 Aug 13 UTC Spring, 1996: May as well call it Ukraine/Turkey/Egypt -- it's pretty clear that Turkey/Egypt are working together too... makes me wonder how long before Ukraine and Egypt decide to cut out the middleman...
20 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1996: At the expansion rate of Ukraine and Turkey, I think one of them has to stab the other before it is too late.
21 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1996: I might just stab myself first and save all the bother - I can't stand the suspense.
21 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1996: Doooo it!
21 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1996: We got an emporer palpatine in here!
22 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1996: Rofl..lol Russia
22 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1996: In one of my games. I just supported the enemy into my land..and I countered it with my own bounce so Instead a 3 on 1+ def it was 2 on 2 attack...lol
22 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1996: That is really funny. Was it a press game? Your opponent was probably pissing angry. I know I would have been if someone did that to me.
22 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1996: No you cant talk. Im pissed since it hurt someone in the game.
26 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1997: God damn it.
29 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1998: Sorry for the poor play, I've been on vacation the past two weeks and haven't been giving the game much thought. Probably should not have joined.
01 Sep 13 UTC Spring, 1999: I just noticed something. In ww2. Poland was the size of where it is now. Berlin was With Russia to the East/South and France and England to the North and West.
Kinda of an interesting map don't you think?
03 Sep 13 UTC Autumn, 1999: ...ah. So *this* is what it feels like to be thrown under a bus. Got it.
03 Sep 13 UTC Autumn, 1999: I know that feel bro. Oh well, I don't deserve to win this game.
13 Sep 13 UTC Spring, 2002: Man, Ukraine, you have some serious skills. You're just waltzing towards a solo, and you manage to talk your biggest threat (England) into doing fuck-all instead of preventing it? Man. I hope at least France is clever enough to put up a fight, though your position in the middle of the map is so strong I'm not sure he'll be able to. Truly incredible, to convince someone to ignore what's happening until it's too late.
13 Sep 13 UTC Spring, 2002: Sssshhhhhh!

These aren't the droids you're looking for.
14 Sep 13 UTC Spring, 2002: These aren't the droids we're looking for.
15 Sep 13 UTC Autumn, 2002: I dont like the Turks in siberia. Ukraine, could you make it right?
15 Sep 13 UTC Autumn, 2002: Ha! Yeah, don't worry, I'll eradicate the infestation...
18 Sep 13 UTC How many supplies do you need?
18 Sep 13 UTC I've put in the draw vote. Turkey won't get credit unless he spontaneously logs in, but I'm fine waiting for the end of the year.
18 Sep 13 UTC At least I'm not an A-hole. I still don't backstab.
19 Sep 13 UTC Dude. How do you think this game works? It's all about trusting, but not too much.
19 Sep 13 UTC Also you're a terrible ally. I'd rather be allies with someone who works with you and expect an inevitable stab from them than someone who refuses to support their allies in a logical fashion.
19 Sep 13 UTC Anyway GG fellas. I'm amazed I'm getting a draw out of this one. You all played quite well.
19 Sep 13 UTC Yes, good game everyone, very enjoyable, thanks for playing.

Anyone for another?
19 Sep 13 UTC Yep sure. Send the invite. Don't invite Turkey please. :-)
19 Sep 13 UTC Ill be in. Just dont give me an eastern nation
19 Sep 13 UTC Thanks for a good game.
