    Aloha proposed a trade in-game :rolleyes:

    I don't think we can accept it without talking to Piffle first. Should we tell Aloha that? :mischief:

    Aloha is benefiting massively from our open borders deal - check out the trade routes in their capital!

    At least with a resource deal we will get an equal benefit.

    Then maybe it's time to close our borders ;)

    I'm not comfortable agreeing to the trade without talking to Piffle first. Or am I treating them as more of an ally than should? :dunno:

    Aloha and Piffle are trading resosurces...Piffle never asked us.

    Dave I would accept the trade. And say nothing to Piffle.

    That's a good point, Memphus :yup:

    Let's do the trade, and see if Piffle gets upset at all. Likely they won't.

    If Piffle is going to trade with them - no reason we shouldn't.
    If Piffle says it was just part of a trick to lull them into a false sense of security - we can claim we were just trying to help out in the same way... since Aloha certainly must know we're allied.

    Most likely outcome: Piffle never even notices we're trading.

    So I say - let's go for it! :thumbsup:

    It's done! [party]

    the audio editing is a bit choppier this time around... but I've got a busy weekend ahead so I doubt I'll get time to smooth it out :sad: ... still, it's not TOO bad :)

    I think the video is pretty funny - but I don't want to upload it to youtube until after Aloha plays the save... don't want to tip them off in case any of them have subscribed to my channel.

    I decided to add a "Salute to Team Aloha" to the end of the video... because the game will be over before we actually conquer all their lands... at least, I think the game will be over by then. (I'm assuming they'll all vote for us in the UN... especially after we destroy their last hope of invading us.)

    Poo - figures the save would rotate on the weekend!
    My connection here at home is too crummy to upload the Aloha war video. It'll have to wait till Monday morning :sad:
    Sorry for the delay!

    We just got this letter from Robboo...

    I think we should take him at his word - and let him try to have some fun attacking Piffle.
    It'll likely help reduce populations in advance of our UN victory anyway. And it'd be worth a laugh :thumbsup:

    With innovia essentially dead, I can't imagine that Aloha really poses much of a threat now.
