17 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 2: Okay, Greece, you're back. I'll honor the DMZ of Ep, Ill and Sarm, to help you get back in the game.
18 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 2: Carthage, if you want to get back in the game, I'll call off my armies for a turn or two. Let's get this game going!
18 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 2: ugh its hard to remember to check this every day
18 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 2: Carthage, my offer still stands. Let me know and I'll move out of Punic and Baleares.
18 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 2: Rome is a good guy :-)
18 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 2: that'd be swell. I'd hate to be a dead duck.
18 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 2: Okay, I will move out of Punic and Baleares. Taking over the world is so boring if everybody just surrenders !
18 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 2: Greece, Persia. How about if you get your build orders in and click <Ready> sometime this evening? Then we can get the turns to change at 9 or 10pm? I feel like the 7AM deadline is not working. What do you think?
19 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 2: yeah yeah!
19 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 2: Greece, can you click <Ready> this evening, 9 or 10pm? Thanks, that would be helpful.
19 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 3: Everybody: Please click <Ready> when you're done with your moves so we can switch the turn start time to something better than 7 AM !
19 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 3: I'm sorry. Many things going on. I only save as I'm trying to keep from missing another turn. Buys me more time that way. If I hit ready, the flipping thing advances and I don't even know it!
19 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 3: Would be nice if it emailed us to let us know a new turn is ready.
20 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 3: Well, the turn starts at 7:05AM and it's on 24 hour turns. So the turns start at 7:05AM everyday.
You can do what I do: wake up at 5:50AM, ponder all the possible moves and predict what the other players will do. Then submit the ideal moves by 6:55AM to make sure I don't miss the deadline.
20 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 3: Dear Greece, thanks for honoring the DMZ. Watch your back - can't be trusting those Romans.
20 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 3: Mmm, need to retract last statement
20 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 3: Mmm, need to retract last statement
21 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 3: Persia, now's a chance to change the turn time. Choose your build, then click ready at 9 or 10 pm tonight. Thanks!
21 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 3: sorry guys. been sidelined and realized I haven't placed my orders. Not looking good for me unless I get some help. Otherwise, I will just have to turn my king over and concede...
22 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 3: Mmm, still willing to help if you take back those units from the DMZ
22 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 4: Hang in there, Greece, I want to have a real game. I'll honor the Sar-Ill-Ep DMZ.
22 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 4: Rome, I honored my side of the DMZ with Greece too ...
22 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 4: Didn't know we had one Persia, sorry.
22 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 4: Didn't know we had one Persia, sorry.
23 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 4: D'oh! You you even acknowledged that you would honor it!
23 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 4: D'oh! You you even acknowledged that you would honor it!
23 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 4: rome, you are confusing me with your tanks moving north? Rome and Greece have the two biggest ancient empires, if we work together than same could be true here...
23 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 4: ...especially since both egypt and carthage are no longer in the game, just you and I against the persian rugs!
23 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 4: persia, don't remember ever agreeing to a dmz with you, I know i did with rome, but maybe I got confused as to whom I was chatting with, sorry.
23 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 4: Greece, I'm just turning more territories pink with my armies moving around. Now I'll go all out to take over Carthage territories.
25 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 4: So, who wants to call it a draw???
25 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 4: Persia: we could keep going, winner-take-all. Do you think you can beat me?
25 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 4: Maybe ... maybe not!
26 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 4: sorry guys, I didn't quit, just forgot. I have been sick and even ended up in the hospital. I totally forgot about the game until this morning but couldn't get to it then.
26 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 4: Okay, thanks for the info. I want to have a good game. I'll stay out of your territory for a few turns so you can recover. Persia: will you let Greece recover?
26 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 4: But of course
27 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 5: Greece: my fleet in the Ionian Sea is just doing some fishing. It won't cause you any trouble.
28 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 5: Sure it won't!
29 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 5: Okay, Persia, this game is between you and me. We should eliminate Greece and Carthage. If we co-ordinate to get 17 sc's each, then we can draw. Otherwise, one of us will get to 18 scs and the other 16, and we'll get proportional points.

I propose that we keep playing for 18, and we'll have a tiny amount of competition in the game.
29 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 5: I accept, Mr M!
30 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 6: Okay, John Persia!
30 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 6: That's "Jon"
30 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 6: Resistance is futile
31 Mar 14 UTC I offer a draw to a worthy adversary.
31 Mar 14 UTC In reality the only adversary!
31 Mar 14 UTC Of all the players that put in moves, you're clearly the best player!
31 Mar 14 UTC I'll vote for a draw, but I want to eliminate the other players first. If I vote draw right now, it'll be a 4-way draw!
31 Mar 14 UTC Shouldn't be. According to the system they have left. If they were active, then they would also need to vote for a draw. So, if you vote an nothing happens you are right. If you wait til all are eliminated I think I get to 18 first and win.
31 Mar 14 UTC Yep, you're right. I'll try voting for a draw right now.
31 Mar 14 UTC 50 each - nice! Well played and thanks for setting it up. Pity miserable gits dropped out so soon ... :(
