22 Jul 20 UTC I bet you are.
23 Jul 20 UTC Me too!
23 Jul 20 UTC ROME WILL ACCEPT NOTHING LESS THAN THE CONQUEST OF THE ENTIRE WORLD UNDER HER EMPIRE
23 Jul 20 UTC Errrrr....
23 Jul 20 UTC Usually.
23 Jul 20 UTC But in this case....
24 Jul 20 UTC Ah Greece; if you'd followed my suggestion last season ...

Interesting game, pretty well played. Rome - I enjoyed the Latin. Egypt - your bizarre arguments. New Greece - our tactical conversation. Persia - our remote war
24 Jul 20 UTC Veni, Vidi, Drawi.
24 Jul 20 UTC Haha yes good game ! I could not win but otherwise good game.
Greece, i knew you were going against me. But what your fleet in Min was trying to do that is anyone guess...
Carthage until this turn i was pretty worried about you, well played in Egypt !
Rome, talk more please ;)
24 Jul 20 UTC I never had much reason to talk to you, Parthia...
24 Jul 20 UTC Right... We did not have Greece between us
24 Jul 20 UTC Of course you knew, it's not like you were very subtle about attacking me. Taking 3 sc's, and still claiming to be friendly and forcing me to move west. Did anyone ever fell for that?

As for Minoan, I wanted to bounce Cilician there. Thought you'd find it obvious that I would defend Crete, and you'd rather move Cilician to Minoan to have 2 fleets surrounding Crete. The bounce would've prevented that.

Anyway, good game all. It was my first experience as Greece on this map, hope to play it more.
24 Jul 20 UTC Previous Greece fell for that. But yes ok this move makes sense.
Thanks for the game and good talk
