    You should try some real Dutch beer. Heineke is just bottled ditchwater. Grolsch is much better :p

    Yeah, the Dutch consider Heineken to be one of the worse beers. Funny that you guys like it though.

    I kinda like Heineken myself, but I'm more of a Guinness man.

    True, they surrendered without a fight because the money/trade had priority on weapons/defense etc (if it sounds familiar, WWII ;), what can I say we Dutch just like to make money :lol:)

    Anyway, technically it wasn't sold but at the peace agreement England was allowed to keep the conquered region of New Netherlands and The Netherlands could keep the conquered region of Suriname.

    Personally, I just destroy the Germans and make a really long Holland. In my current game (no doubt of victory) the Vikings attacked Germany, which made them collapse, and then I attacked Scandinavia, which made them collapse. So I got the Low Countries, Germany, Poland, and Scandinavia to myself. Sistine Chapel kept French culture at bay.

    When the US popped, they asked me to DoW England and I did, so I have a nice little European nation. Can't really colonize, though...

    BTW, GO STATE PROP!
