    Hello? Anyone there? Come on, Frrosch and Tim, you two were on today (In my timezone). As for the others, Lo5 and Anar haven't been on in 3 months (or more, in Lo5's case :mad:) :lol:, Pneuma hasn't been on since Nov. 29 and TLM hasn't been on since Dec. 22. Surely one of you can play.

    Sure, why not.

    1385(0): sell corporation to Spain for espionage, WM, 57g
    switch Pharsalos to SPHQ
    intelligence agency wouldn't be useful
    switch some police stations to sipahi

    IBT: Carthage drops off longbowman
    learn refining, start on combustion

    1390(1): zzz

    1395(2): zzz

    1400(3): alternate between 0% and 100%
    start some banks

    IBT: Pentagon built

    1405(4): zzz

    1410(5): some Sipahi head to Carthaginian cities

    IBT: SPHQ built

    1415(6): sell medicine to Germany for 40g, 27gpt, WM
    sell refining to Spain for 143g, 59gpt, WM

    1420(7): zzz

    1425(8): lose 2 sipahi razing Rusaddir

    IBT: Carthage rifle dies
    learn combustion, start on flight

    1430(9): zzz

    IBT: Spain declares war
    they capture Edrine, Giuseppe :mad:
    that includes palace, FP, heroic epic, military academy, pentagon :sad:

    1435(10): recapture Edrine, Giuseppe
    raze Baltimore (Carthage)

    Notes: Once again, probably some builds should be switched to sipahis; after flight sipahis can be shipped over and war with probably Germany (to connect our cities) can begin
    Carthage is close to giving us Nora and Sulcis for peace, perhaps they'll be willing with 3 sipahis on Nora's doorstep
    We might as well capture Asturias from Spain
    We've got 4 small wonders to rebuild; Konya might be good for the FP
    I had "Alesia needs work" in my notes, probably changing irrigation to mines
    eventually at least 5 stock exchanges for Wall Street would be good

    lurker's comment: Try signing multiple per turn deals with Spain so they won't attack you.

    I signed peace with Carthage and waited for flight to attack somebody else. Carthage, Germany, and America were wiped out by 1590. Spain had barely (if at all) started settling the empty land and hadn't started Apollo Program (unless it was in a small city I didn't investigate) for a while after getting the necessary technology and resources, so I called the election in 1745 and decided to vote for my opponent. We still managed to be magnificent, being first in points IIRC. Just for fun I wiped out Spain in 1772. The save before "victory" is attached if anyone cares.
