1 excused missed turn
Game drawn
27 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 3: I was always fascinated with zenos paradoxes. I heard about the arrow shot at the warrior when I was but a lad. And I couldn't figure it out
02 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 4: Greece and Egypt! Do you not see the great deceiver that is Persia!? He is not to be trusted on any level. Let us combine our armies and drive him from the land. Are you with me?
02 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 4: Why are you leaving Carthage out? Oh right, because he's currently in your way
02 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 4: Carthage declared war upon my people first! Did you not witness multiple unprovoked attacks on Sicilia? Now, Greece and Egypt, you have been stabbed by Persia, let us return the favor!
02 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 4: What's a stab among friends?
06 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 4: Egypt, speak! What say you about the state of the war?
09 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 4: Time to let Greece know you ruthlessly delivered her coup de grace in true cold blooded fashion.
09 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 4: It seems to me that most her places are purple.
09 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 4: Greece is actually a nice mix of colors. But I'm willing to bet you knew I would attack Macedonia, and rather than supporting it you made sure I could easily take it and you could deliver the killing blow. A stake to the heart.
13 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 4: I don't care that I'm losing, I'm crushing Carthage!
13 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 4: Never mind, I'm in third place!
13 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 4: The only way to get second is to join me against the purple, are you ready?
13 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 4: The only way to get second is to help one of us attack the other. One that you think won't backstab you.
14 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 5: No doubt about it, Rome is honorable. Take our side against the Sidon menace.
17 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 5: I wouldn't be surprised if Egypt declines an even split with me and wins this game.
19 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 5: It's too bad armies aren't amphibious like Carthage wants them to be. Maybe if they took an extra turn to get there per sea space - there's some house rules for yah
20 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 5: Purple, Yellow, one of you join me against the other!
21 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 5: ...He shouts, in desperation, but hears only the sound of tanks rolling toward him in reply.

Which must have been a strange and fearful sight for the ancient Romans
21 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 5: LOL
22 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 6: I like the way carthage thinks. Saguntum is yours for the taking!
22 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 6: Last time I saw him, I gave him a cookie if he promised never to take Saguntum.
22 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 6: I'll give you two if you take it
22 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 6: Peanut butter
22 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 6: I'll give you a white chocolate macadamia! Threee!
22 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 6: You know, we are all perfectly at 11 centers. Pretty nice number, I think. How about we clean up that mess in Thapsus and call it a game?
22 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 6: I wouldn't mind. Up to you Egypt. There is much glory to be had in the conquest of Rome, but a three way tie is much safer, and still has a decent amount of glory
24 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 6: I just noticed Apu. Go Rammit.
24 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 6: Hence the reason I didn't feel like it was necessary to defend. You're welcome.
24 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 6: I do not except your gift. Can you take it back?
24 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 6: Lost the receipt, sorry
25 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 6: Everyone, join War of the Ages
Password: AsdAsd
26 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 6: I don't like it that Purple and red are the only ones that actually talk here in the global. Very dissappointing.
So, Persia, are you really working towards splitting a victory with Egypt?
26 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 6: Yes. If he goes along with that. Unlike Germany in the mountain game I have no problem with splitting victory; I prefer it that way.
27 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 6: I sometimes talk...
28 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 7: CARTHAGE! MAKE YOUR MOVE EVEN THOUGH YOUR GOING TO DIE ANYWAYS!
02 Dec 15 UTC Autumn, 7: Not dead yet!
02 Dec 15 UTC Autumn, 7: Fast as fast can be, the Carthage man says, "you'll never catch me!"
04 Dec 15 UTC Autumn, 7: So? Carthage doesn't have a supply center.
04 Dec 15 UTC Autumn, 7: Which makes this a wonderful time to draw.
04 Dec 15 UTC Autumn, 7: NO!
05 Dec 15 UTC Spring, 8: Carthage couldn't outrun the grim reaper.
05 Dec 15 UTC Spring, 8: Nope.
05 Dec 15 UTC Autumn, 8: The Grim Reaper is tired after running down and killing two of us already. He wants a break. Time for a draw!
06 Dec 15 UTC Autumn, 8: The reaping is for us all
09 Dec 15 UTC Autumn, 8: Robert Loggia, I mean the grim reaper, is dead. Draw time.
09 Dec 15 UTC Autumn, 8: Where are you, my nephew? Did you get restricted from the computer?
09 Dec 15 UTC Autumn, 8: no...
09 Dec 15 UTC A new unholy alliance creeps across the land - the Persians and Romans who were proud defiant enemies ready to kill at a moment's notice now sit down together drinking tea and talking about things like the occupied Olympics and Alexander the Persian great.

When they march upon the enemy together, their battle cry is - Draw! Draw! Draw!

They hired very artistic mercenaries.
13 Dec 15 UTC Whew. I was worried I might actually have to work with Brown for a turn. Saved by the draw.
14 Dec 15 UTC Yeah, close one.
