02 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 3: My my, this game has had more stabs than a Christmas turkey.
03 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 4: Yes my back hurts ;-)
03 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 4: I can feel it in my back and front
03 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 4: It is pretty bad isn't it let's just all quit fighting and have a draw
03 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 4: lol
03 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 4: We can all have a nice picnic in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea and eat jam sandwiches. Would've that be lovely?
03 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 4: that would be lovely I mean the upper left side of the board is all for it, #Draw squad
03 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 4: oh i get it - the best way to resolve a war game is by having no war.
03 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 4: if persia is making the jam sandwiches - he has to taste them first
03 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 4: Yeah lets just get rid of Persia and then 4 way draw. EVERYONE ELSE has been stabbed once or more.
03 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 4: carthage ..lets kill carthabge and draw..

but very interesting how pubic and private press are differnet..

and Carth Im pretty sure I have staabbed myself at least once..
06 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 4: Hmmm.

I see a Greeko Egyptian alliance that will doom us all..

Actually I see an eventual Greece win well played sir well played..

Greece forms peace with a weakend rome and egypt so he can fight Persia. Persia fall to them ( eventually ) but Persia has better defence v Egypt so egypt gains are in Carth,

It all dependes on Greece timing of stabbing Rome ( yet again ) ..

So Carth I porpose an alliance between us ..This time please chat hence I have put it in public press..( chat back in private ) you can yell at me in public too keep up pretence of to my secret allie next year is the phase..
06 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 4: Everyone I am Carthage and Persia must die. Any questions? No. Well Rome you are fired. Greece you are too. Egypt.... don't get me started. Carthage ugh. Map why.
06 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 4: (Carthage - what did *I* do?)
06 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 4: WOW Persia. Desperate much?

Your attempt to pin me as the bad guy is laughable - especially considering YOU are the one whispering into everyone's ears, trying to manipulate everyone and get them to do your bidding. I'm under siege from you, and somehow I'm the big threat here? And you're the victim who's about to be doomed?!? Riiiight...

You can try to paint yourself as the martyr all you want, but no one's gonna buy it. I listened to you before when you said that Rome was the big threat and I should attack him, and look where that got me. No one else is falling for your tricks.
06 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 4: persia told me that he doesn't need an ally to win this game - he might be right haha
06 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 4: LOL Greece I thgought that was you saying beware the huge roman egyptian alliance ..

No im not a matyr..
Just a Dipper ..

PS is carthage on Crack. ?/ if so I hear there is a dealer in Rome he should visit ..

Sorry rome but I would like to keep the crazy over there..
09 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 5: @ Greece keep offering me a horse ..

@ Egypt I never said I dont need an allie to win. I said you can't win with an allie only draw. Which is ok as well .

@ Secret Alliance partner .. They have no idea..
09 Jul 17 UTC Bugger..miss entered moves..
09 Jul 17 UTC @ secret partner ..I think they are onto you..
09 Jul 17 UTC Well this was an interesting game...and I thought a 5-player map would be boring.

Out of curiosity, did anyone actually have a secret alliance with Persia? Egypt, I was convinced that you did.
09 Jul 17 UTC I didnt I was allied with him until you and him both attacked vind
09 Jul 17 UTC Not me. He kept attacking when i asked him to stop
09 Jul 17 UTC I was convinced persia was going to go for a solol while watching everyone else fight eachother haha
09 Jul 17 UTC I did was getting doubled whole game.
09 Jul 17 UTC Thats because you betrayed me on the second turn
10 Jul 17 UTC I was trying for the solo ..

PS my last move was Egypt sea to ALEX supported by SIN and GOP .

MIL to BYZ ( and CAPP to SIN supported by GAL and ARM which would have locked my northern border..)

Interesting game well played to all thankyou..

I think that would have given me alex but I would lose CRETE meaning I could not push the draw line .
10 Jul 17 UTC I was in comms with evryone ..but Rome probably the least which may have been my downfall..
10 Jul 17 UTC I came out even so I am happy.
