06 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 3: @carthage, look at Italy position - we both need peace
06 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 3: Carthage, Egypt and Persia both have more supply centers than we do... we can’t give in to them. They’ll overrun us
06 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 3: @Rome, rest assured, the fight goes on
08 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 5: I meant for a fleet in Neapolis...
08 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 5: And an army in Ravenna >.<
08 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 5: @persia - we need you to move against Italy. Don’t wait for him to conquer all of Greece. Sorry Greece but if we wait - Italy will be 2 SC stronger.
08 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 5: @persia - don’t let Rome take Miletus and Byzantium.
09 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 5: @Rome, let's find a way for one of us to get into Messenian Sea
09 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 5: I’m supporting you in
09 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 5: I suggest you move in, instead
09 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 5: That works too, it’ll be from the Ionian
09 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 5: Certo
11 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 7: @ Persia - will help you into agean
11 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 7: That's what you think!
11 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 7: well ya, that's kind of the point.
13 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 7: The stab had to happen, Persia. Had you turned on Egypt sooner, I'd've considered you a friend.
13 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 8: Well played Italy and Carthage
13 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 8: You guys worked really well together
13 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 8: It isn't over until the big woman sings......
13 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 8: Thank you carthage
13 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 8: *egypt
13 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 8: No, Carthage, thank yourself. You’re the reason you are where you are.
13 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 8: its over. lol
13 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 8: Well played, Persia, you get to hold Byzantium for all of Spring!
13 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 8: it would be brutal if Carthage tried to go for the solo. I mean Italy is so open for attack if he stabs and after he wipes me out he is in a much better position.
13 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 8: I agree, Egypt. I've played this game enough, I'm aware I'm open to be stabbed. You want to know why I don't care? Because I play to win with my allies. If Carthage feels that stabbing me is best for them, so be it. I would definitely appreciate it if they didn't, but their life is in their hands and under their control. Whatever happens, happens.
14 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 8: It's true - he really does play that way. Carthage will get some builds then should be able to conquer the Italian peninsular and thereby win the game if he wants to.
15 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 8: You win some you lose some. Happy Holidays
16 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 9: Sorry all, missed one phase
16 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 9: @Rome, I'm not looking to stab
16 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 9: Nor am I, Carthage
16 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 9: @Rome, good, let's not have that Etruria unit move any further then
16 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 9: It’s actually moving back. I think I meant to move it to Vindabona :/
16 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 9: Greece, I just recognised who you are...
18 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 10: I'm sorry there, Carthage about Egyptian Sea, I'll stay out of there.
18 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 10: Sounds good. Let's just DMZ the Egyptian Sea. :P
20 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 11: this is taking forever!
20 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 11: Well, if Persia were to just submit hold orders, this'd be much quicker.

Carthage, you still planning on drawing with me? I'd like to propose I take Cyprus, Antioch and Damascus. Thoughts?
20 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 11: works for me
20 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 11: I'm opposed to that plan. :P
25 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 13: Carthage, can you support Cilician to Cyprus?
25 Dec 18 UTC @Persia - does that mean the draw is off?
25 Dec 18 UTC Carthage, are you a new player?
25 Dec 18 UTC I would have happily drawn with the original Carthage I made an alliance with... unfortunately, I cannot extend the same sentiments to you, New Carthage. I rarely play to win... but when there are new players with whom I don’t have an alliance, I shoot for the win
25 Dec 18 UTC To be honest that's the answer I expected. Unfortunately I joined the game without looking at the map first. Live and learn ...
26 Dec 18 UTC Carthage was in an amazing position... I was perfectly willing to work with Carthage... just not when a new player came in.
26 Dec 18 UTC Oh, I get that. And I totally get it. I just wish I had gotten in sooner - it looks like you guys had a good game!

(Any idea what happened to the original Carthage?)
26 Dec 18 UTC No clue... probably the holiday season. This is my first game won that wasn't a 1v1
26 Dec 18 UTC Congratulations on the win!! They're not easy to come by, that's for sure!
26 Dec 18 UTC Congrats
