This was my first Emporer game ever, and I thought I'd get trounced worse than I did. My big mistake was in misjudging how fast Alex would grow... I could have either claimed all those forests myself, or taken them by force. Instead, I was left with the marginal tundra to the south, and whatever I could get picking away at Alex and Izzy through the game. I simply got behind and stayed behind. Victoria launched the ship in 1979... I'm glad I survived that long, there was never an option to attack anyone after a certain point. 5849 points, leadership skills of Neville Chamberlain. hmpf. I noticed in the game replay that at 4000BC I show a session 2 and 3 starting. My game last month wasn't accepted because of this (I didn't cheat, but understandable), but I'm pretty sure this month that I didn't open the start file twice... Could moving the file register it with another session I haven't submitted, I don't want to get another entry rejected.
