24 May 17 UTC Spring, 1: i won't desert you
24 May 17 UTC Spring, 1: Good luck everyone!
24 May 17 UTC Spring, 1: Watch out for drunk elephants!
24 May 17 UTC Spring, 1: Darius, King of Kings, greets fellow leaders and looks forward to a number of state visits (away legs first).
31 May 17 UTC Spring, 4: Little help, guys in the east?
31 May 17 UTC Spring, 4: lol, The Roman Senate has seized the Emperor in a democratic coup and sent fast ships with gifts to Egypt and Persia... help...
31 May 17 UTC Spring, 4: And he's probably right, the time for Egypt and Persia to stop killing each other has likely arrived...
02 Jun 17 UTC Autumn, 4: Darius, King of Kings, has offered terms to the Pharaoh but age response has been a deafening silence. With three foreign fleets off his coast surely now is the time for talking.
12 Jun 17 UTC Spring, 6: Can we draw
12 Jun 17 UTC Spring, 6: Please..?
12 Jun 17 UTC Spring, 6: Lol
12 Jun 17 UTC Spring, 6: Pretty please?
12 Jun 17 UTC Spring, 6: Oh, he talks.
12 Jun 17 UTC Spring, 6: How did Greece go into Civil Disorder, and then be taken over, without missing any orders?
12 Jun 17 UTC Spring, 6: ask the previous Greece!
12 Jun 17 UTC Spring, 6: Tricky in an anonymous game
12 Jun 17 UTC Spring, 6: i think he missed builds and retreats, or something? two phases in a row missed and you go into CD
12 Jun 17 UTC Spring, 6: He did, he missed a retreat phase, then he missed the build phase, two strikes in a row and you go into CD, that;s how it happened, I just reviewed the move histories.
12 Jun 17 UTC Spring, 6: Ah, OK. I thought the disband in Pha was an order.
12 Jun 17 UTC Spring, 6: Ah, OK. I thought the disband in Pha was an order.
12 Jun 17 UTC Spring, 6: And I sort of thought it had to be a movement phase missed.
12 Jun 17 UTC Spring, 6: And I sort of thought it had to be a movement phase missed.
12 Jun 17 UTC Spring, 6: I do not remember the exact rules from the rule book...
16 Jun 17 UTC I think this may be the end guys...
16 Jun 17 UTC 18 SC, Great game everyone, congratulations for a fun and hard game. You all needed to stop fighting several turns ago and gang up on me, 3 v 1...
17 Jun 17 UTC Yeah, good game. The old Greece had the worst possible personality, an uncommunicative armored duck. I suppose it's fitting that the game proceeded so uninterestingly after that was made clear to everyone.
17 Jun 17 UTC sad that Persia cannot just write some orders...
17 Jun 17 UTC Congrats to Tugster on the win.

Thanks to Lamish and Stratˆ for the comms & cooperation.

@Calculus - I had more messages from old Greece.
17 Jun 17 UTC I guess I never understood why the three of you din't gang up on me, surely you must have seen it coming three or four turns ago...
17 Jun 17 UTC Fun fight Persia
18 Jun 17 UTC I think with a better group my strategy wouldn't have been so apocalyptic let alone fatal, but I guess the results speak for themselves.
18 Jun 17 UTC @Egypt: Resulting in us both losing.
