13 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 4: Hello, new Grece here. I will catch up chat, and try to carry on Grece policy.
14 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 4: How should I progress this turn? Rome and Carthage are going down much faster than I originally expected.
14 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 4: The fact their alliance lasted about 1 turn only played a big part of course.
14 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 4: Well roll South. I will push west.
15 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 4: Well, I'm moving Libyan Sea to Ausonian Sea. I assume moving to Aegean Sea will be too threatening to you, Greece.
15 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 4: Perfect. Thx. Yeah, I would preferr to keep Aegean DMZ.
18 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 5: I'm moving to Punic Sea. Can you support me, Egypt?
18 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 5: Yeah I can do.
18 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 5: I am moving to Ion and Adr, I will try to finish of Rome.
18 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 5: Sure thing. Adriatic Sea is probably not even necessary.
21 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 5: Moving Punic Sea to Berber Sea.

I'm moving Minoan Sea back as it is serving no purpose.

Egypt, would you care to pass Jerusalem to me so we can keep the unit count distributed a bit more evenly between us? With the upcoming gains from Thapsus and Carthage, you will still gain units anyway.
21 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 5: Actually, Greece, can I have Crete? Same reasoning with Egypt, it's best to split unit count as evenly as possible between alliance members to prevent someone who sticks out ahead from trying to go for a solo run.
21 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 5: I will agree to this Persia, in return though I would like to have more Demilitarization between ourselves so I don't have to worry about a stab.
21 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 5: Thank you Egypt. What DMZ did you have in mind? I will never enter GoP for starters. Similarly, I would never enter Aegean Sea out of courtesy to Greece.
21 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 5: Well after you take Jer, I'd prefer if you could retreat the unit from Jer to Tyr and I'll move mine to Petra. Then we can bounce each other in Jer thus confirming neither one of us can take each others SC's.
21 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 5: I don't see how that's different from me just staying in Jerusalem and you staying in Petra, especially since I need two turns to reach your other sc's. Also, that leaves a window during that turn in which you can take Jerusalem back from me as I'm retreating to Tyre. I'm not saying you will do that, I'm just wondering how my unit in Tyre really differs instead of residing in Jerusalem.

But since it will make you feel better, we'll do it as you said. I move to Jerusalem this turn, and retreat on the following turn to Tyre. The game shouldn't last much longer anyway.
21 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 5: I agree.
21 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 5: Greece, can I move to Crete?
22 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 5: Sure. Take it.
22 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 5: Thank you
22 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 5: You can take Carthage if you'd like Persia.
22 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 5: Thanks, but I was planning to take Saguntum (or Sardinia with some help). If we plan accordingly, we should be able to end the game after two more moves.
22 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 5: Ok so I'll take Carthage?
22 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 5: Yeah. I thought something like:

you take Carthage,
Greece takes Massila,
either you or Greece takes Sardinia
I take Saguntum

Game finished.
23 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 5: Works for me.
23 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 6: I'm moving to Saguntum now. Have you two decided who's getting Sardinia?
23 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 6: you can have Greece
23 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 6: I'm moving Jerusalem to Tyre. Can you wait one turn before bouncing me in Jerusalem?
23 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 6: Yeah I can doooo
24 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 6: Ok, Going to TyrS and Lig then we will split a draw.
25 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 6: Smooth game :)
26 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 6: Ok, taking Massisla and supporting Punic into Sar.
27 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 6: New player here.
27 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 6: Wow; amusing that people take over such games.
27 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 6: Well yes, obviously I don't have any hopes of winning this.
It's rather an act of kindness, I just do it so that other players shouldn't have to wait because some unsportsmanlike tennager doesn't want to fulfill a commitment.
27 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 6: Also: I am quite bored at work..
27 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 6: You the real MVP new Carthage.
27 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 6: Aww thank you.
Furthermore I consider that I must be destroyed.
27 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 6: While I value your kindness to help speed things along, it seems that Rome is forming a bottleneck anyway. So your efforts may have been for naught.
27 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 6: Where are you from, Carthage?
27 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 6: Obviously I am from Carthage!?!
29 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 6: Rome is really going to make us sit this out all the way :)
29 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 6: I have time :). But yes, he could have ended this earlier.
29 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 6: Someones is salty that he'd made a terrible ally.
30 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 6: im not the original rome... and i dont exactly know what im doing.
30 Oct 17 UTC im not the original rome... and i dont exactly know what im doing.
