26 Dec 17 UTC Gg all, I voted draw the turn before but was surprised that it didnt get drawn, so I kept going for a bit
26 Dec 17 UTC Gg turkey well played! England, did you do some troll-strategy where you only built fleets? I felt like stabbing me as you did was abit stupid; had you built some armies and stayed allied with me we could have swept the map together!

Interesting game though.
26 Dec 17 UTC Not trolling, no. I was trying to get to 18 by adding Spain, Portugal, Tunis, Brest Marseilles, Naples & Rome.
26 Dec 17 UTC At the end of 1905, I decided to stab France and I built fleets in Liverpool and London. In hindsight, I should have known I’d never be able to fight my way through France before Turkey got to 18. I’ll concede that it was a misjudgment on my part.

At least I realized my mistake in time and backed off in time to force a draw.

Good game.
26 Dec 17 UTC Ok, I see! Well it was good that we could rally :)
