29 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 4: It happens, I guess.
29 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 4: is it 14 sc's to win?
29 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 4: 18 I'd think
29 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 4: 18!
29 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 4: 18.
29 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 4: okay, cool
29 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 4: Definitely not 18 factorial :P
29 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 4: You need 6.4 x 10^15 SCs to win.
29 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 4: why not take Byzantium with Bithyas support...
29 Apr 16 UTC Spring, 5: I thought it was 6.02e23
29 Apr 16 UTC Spring, 5: Because then I wouldn't be able to stop Greek advancement into either Armenia or Sinope. I create a barrier at the border of Chersonesus and then focus back on Byzantium.

I've run into this problem many times before.
29 Apr 16 UTC Spring, 5: There is no problem for you anymore, as I'm gone.
29 Apr 16 UTC Spring, 5: Right when it was starting to get good ;)
29 Apr 16 UTC Spring, 5: so many moves to put in
29 Apr 16 UTC Spring, 5: Egypt, at this point, we just need to prevent Carthage from taking those SCs in Greece.
29 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 5: In Egypt more like :(
29 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 5: Unless Cyprus comes and helps it's gg....
29 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 5: Are you going to move back to Egyptian Sea? I could go that route if you want support down in Egypt.
29 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 5: you should
29 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 5: I'm supporting you to Aegean, if you want.
29 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 5: Wasn't needed anyway!
29 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 5: I'm gonna still support you to the Aegean this upcoming turn. It's crucial that you take it so we can work towards liberating Athens and Sparta. Otherwise...
29 Apr 16 UTC Spring, 6: OR I'll move from Miletus to Aegean and you attempt to work around Messenian.
29 Apr 16 UTC Spring, 6: Support lesbian from Crete pld
29 Apr 16 UTC Spring, 6: Where??!
29 Apr 16 UTC Spring, 6: damn autocorrect?
29 Apr 16 UTC Spring, 6: Lesbian should be supported from Lesbos in Aegean Sea :P
29 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 6: I don't know what map you're working with, but I don't see a Lesbos in this entire thing. We just lost because we bounced in Aegean.

Unbelievable. What a waste of time this whole thing was.
29 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 6: Sorry I thought you were supporting me into it :(
29 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 6: I changed my mind after I realized your fleet near Crete could do something better with it. I'm just gonna die with dignity.
29 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 6: Good game, Carthage. Damn you and your unfair advantage ;)
29 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 6: And Egypt, thanks for the loyalty. We cooperated very well. In other parallel universe, we would have knocked on Carthage's doorstep in no time.
29 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 6: It's not over yet, tryst me
29 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 6: It is.
29 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 6: :)
29 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 6: I think it's pretty well over
29 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 6: There is an island of Lesbos in Aegean Sea (not large enough to be present on this map though)
29 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 6: If only I had known lol. Good game everyone!
29 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 6: And again, I miss a move. Ugh
29 Apr 16 UTC Spring, 7: Quick, Egypt - support me into Libyan Sea from Egyptian! We have a glimmer of hope! lmao
29 Apr 16 UTC Spring, 7: Right idea but there is better way ;)
29 Apr 16 UTC Spring, 7: Is it better to not tell me? lol.
29 Apr 16 UTC Egypt, you're not communicating what you want, and it would help us out if I knew where to support you.
29 Apr 16 UTC Trying to end this turn. We'll see
29 Apr 16 UTC Literally so dumb.
29 Apr 16 UTC Who leaves at the last turn?
29 Apr 16 UTC good game
29 Apr 16 UTC yeah, I dont know. I think I still would have won that phase no matter what he did.
29 Apr 16 UTC GG. Just noticed and for some reason remembered Kenyanbaka in one game and here he is, lol
29 Apr 16 UTC I guess.

Good game.
