22 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 1: that's about as low-drama a first turn as is possible on this map
22 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 1: textbook.
23 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 1: Awfully friendly there at Leptis. Just be careful, Egypt - heard that Carthage was making fun of the way you all walk. And they said that an elephant could totally stomp a crocodile. You can't put up with that, can you?
23 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 1: Well to be fair, an elephant could literally stomp a crocodile, he's right in that regard.
23 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 1: And what's with their weird ass writing system? Egypt has to go.
23 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 1: OY you leave my heiroglypics out of this or I'll bash ye fookin ead in.
23 Dec 16 UTC Spring, 2: Caesar - can we leave Epirus, Sarmatia and Illyria DMZs?

Xerxes (?) - can we leave Armenia, Bithynia, Galatia and Isauria DMZs?

Pericles just wants to sit here, practice democracy and eat some delicious seasoned french fries (the ancient Greeks were the first to invent Greek food trucks).
23 Dec 16 UTC Spring, 2: Uh oh Carthage - Egypt has clearly made a pact with the Brits... and picked up their delightful dialect to boot ;)
23 Dec 16 UTC Spring, 2: sure fam
24 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 2: So much for Greek Persian peace.

24 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 2: Couldn't let the game get too boring now, eh?
26 Dec 16 UTC Spring, 3: Friend, Roman - can we reduce the forces in that part of Europe (it's an awful powderkeg)? I'm going to need to cover my SCs this turn to protect against a rash stab, but you look like you'll have your hands full, and I tend to overreact when people hit me from behind. Please don't.
26 Dec 16 UTC Spring, 3: Say goodbye to Athens.
26 Dec 16 UTC Spring, 3: Goodbye to Athens.
26 Dec 16 UTC Spring, 3: Of course Egypt will do what Carthage tells it to.
26 Dec 16 UTC Spring, 3: Hey man, you Europeans don't know what its like down here. Carthage is like a brother to me. We Africans have to stick together.
27 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 3: Rome, this isn't working out so well for either of us..
27 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 3: But if you two don't keep fighting, how will the world ever get that scene where Patton visits the Carthaginian ruins? Surely Carthage has an interest in that happening.
29 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 4: Rip Persia.
03 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 7: Oof. Egypt, I think you will regret that. Greece and Rome haven't turned on each other and will overpower you.
03 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 7: or we could just three way draw XD
03 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 7: why would you do that?
03 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 7: science!!!
03 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 7: i s till don't know why persia is alive
03 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 7: I clearly didn't know that a move from Thebes to Alexandria could be a thing.

I think Rome just really likes my presents.

I'd expect that Persia's use as a support-hold magnet is going to expire this turn.
03 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 7: surpised you didn't move to epirus just now.
03 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 7: Greeks and Romans are like Americans and Canadians. Non-stop friendship until President Trump sends American tanks rolling across the 49th parallel into the boundless prairies of Saskatchewan looking for Bigfoot (after whom he assumes the province is named).
03 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 7: i doubt we'd waste tanks like that when we're busy sending them to defend the mexican border
04 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 7: solo time for greece.
04 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 7: Egypt is going to be a tough nut to crack. Maybe he should let me build a giant horse for him.
05 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 7: I do like horses...
05 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 7: You don't need anything from Egypt. Balkans and Italy will do it.
05 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 8: really greece? he's down to four at least let me finish him off
06 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 8: What else am I going to build? Have naval control pretty well locked up in the part of the Med i care about.
06 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 8: alright but seriously carthage is almost dead
06 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 8: So are you
07 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 8: i have twice as many centers as you do
07 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 8: don't try to shit talk me XD
07 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 8: you'll be dead right when i am
07 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 8: I'm just saying it's a Greek solo. I screwed myself at the end of the first year. Meant to build two fleets and one army, but mis ordered. Been downhill ever since.
07 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 8: maybwe egypt and greece will draw
07 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 8: Nope. Greece solos this, Rome,just like Carthage said.
09 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 9: so i guess egypt and rome aren't even going to try to fight it. congrats greece.
09 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 9: It really makes things a lot easier (if a bit anti-climactic).

I thought I was very stoppable just on account of the amount of geography between Rome and me. Was counting on you trying to throw the game to me to spite Rome/secure a survive.
