01 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 4: *shit
01 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 5: hey egypt, mind letting me have Damascus for a few turns?
03 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 6: Greece, mind letting me have Athens?
03 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 6: Greece, mind letting me have Athens?
03 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 6: go for it
04 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 7: Greece, I'll support your Dacia into Chers

:)
04 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 7: I'll also support your Athens hold.
04 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 7: thanks! athens sup ion to sparta?
04 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 7: I don't think that you can. Professor Dobreni has dug in :)
04 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 7: aha - got it
04 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 7: depends. can try if you want to
04 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 7: i should get some support from rome :D
04 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 7: Actually, what I like about this game is that amid all the chaos, Dobreni and I have kept these 2 units in Numidia and Leptis as originally promised.
04 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 7: a promis is a promis. even if it means loosing the win :D
04 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 7: agreed. but no promises re the rest of the board.
04 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 7: that to be honest and of course modest : I deserve it :P
04 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 7: bold move to attack sparta. i have though of attacking athens, . of course from sparta :D
04 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 7: doh, forgot it was global chat
04 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 7: lol
04 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 7: It hurts me to admit it, but I cannot see how you will not get 18. We'll see....
04 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 7: so what is the deal after all ?
04 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 7: i think i will not get them also :D
04 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 7: i did not expect to take byzantium
04 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 7: i did not expect to take byzantium
04 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 7: so what do you think i will have after this moves ?
04 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 7: Well, I do have an ace up my sleeve but I do not know if it will materialise.

To be honest, it can go either way.
04 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 7: If everyone plays a perfect game by end of turn, you will have 17.
04 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 7: don't htink so . i will less
04 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 7: Hmmm, not if all four players played as expected. Anyway, press ready and we will know :)
04 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 7: See... I told you so :)
04 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 7: wtf you did not gain anything ?
04 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 7: what is the ace :D
04 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 7: ??
04 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 7: No, of course not. Rome is dug in.
04 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 7: Hmm, I cannot see a draw of this.

Well, played actually. You moved very fast. Before i knew it you were already at 14-15 and Rome slowed me down.
04 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 7: billb tried to catch up when he joined but he as already far behind. Impossible for him.
04 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 8: yes. he did get 6 and we have got 7 at end of 2nd . but he was not too well positioned
04 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 8: i thought he will come from behind , but it is not only about numbers , also position counts
04 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 8: now we have to wait 12 hours for rome :D
04 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 8: also he lost miletus by a unsuspected move .
04 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 8: in autumn 3 . he left open miletus. i attacked persia in cilician and persia went in miletus. that was a step back , a changing of game momentum
04 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 8: persia instead of defending cilician went for a SC and lost it all
04 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 8: now you got me thinking of a million possibilities you guys would play :D
04 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 8: I would consider a draw if you like
05 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 8: Well, that's very noble of you Greece, but it is unlikely to happen :)
05 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 8: We have to try, though. May I suggest that you strike on chers and Byz?
05 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 8: retreat to adriatic . you will take both dalmatia and ravena
05 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 8: No need. I had to take a chance but it did not work out because you played all your moves correctly.
05 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 8: Chers in the next move and you are @18.

Well played!
05 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 8: also it is hard to coordinate in an common chat press game
