Early set teaser:

Actually meant to write swap rather than skip. Turns are long enough and can play next weekend.

Long turns, but I will be ready to hand it off before next weekend. Need to figure out the next war target.
Need to figure out the next war target.
Why 1 target? Do we need to build anything other than barracks and more troops (plus settlers)? We should be able to over run the world. We can easily rush build 30+ Hotchkiss each turn.

Use our current mobile troops to go after the Maghreb treasury. Plus, some other target like France or Italy or both, we still need to get rid of the Russians.
Yeah, agreed. Cancel the Wine deal and declare on Maghreb anytime.

France, Inca, and Italy are all good secondary targets. I think we'll still get Britain in the Maghreb war with their MPP, so we should plan accordingly.

Edit: It would be amusing to convert this into an AW game once our current per-turn deals run out.
Middle set teaser:

I should finish today or tomorrow.
Wrapping up teaser:

Last teaser before write up.

Nice to see you convinced the Austro-Hungarians to merge into our benevolent commune. :lol:

Any reason for us to not offer a similar chance to the Maghreb or Inca? :mischief:
