    lurker's comment: Armies are just about 1k after the first turn, IMO, unless you really need the army, wait 7 turns.

    Would it be worth another anarchy? I don't think so, but maybe I'm wrong.

    Sounds like Lenin is already on the train, might as well let him off in Trondheim. Go Big Red, Go!

    Make it Commie then. Some good cities at the front will help us greatly.

    We won't be able to cash-rush with commie, but Ragnar is a crazy guy. No cash-rushing armies might hurt us too much. I'm for staying Republic, only for that fact.

    Nothing much to report. We revolted back to Republic as I flipped heads, otherwise, quiet. Just trying to get the spt rate up to a decent level in the capitol and other core towns. This is very important as we need more Zerks if we're going to close this out. Also, we are positioned pretty well to smack France around, but be careful as France and England have an MPP.

    Signed a mututal protection pact with the wife and tried to get the ex back into court after the coal deal expired. She wouldn't take the bait, the b****.

    There lots of open cities for her to attack triggering the protection agreement with Joan as long as we don't cross into her territory.

    There may still be some areas that are exposed to attack but have no counter available to take them right back. I shifted troops to the west to tr and take care of some of that, as I didn't want to lose too many cities.

    There are two galleons off the coast of England's home island with armies on board.

    I was relunctant to feed the wife's appetite for research so did not renew the Dyes deal as she wanted too many luxuries in exchange.

    There were no signs of sicientific advances towards infantry. We may want to rush to Espionage though.

    :crazyeye: Hehe :crazyeye:

    Guys, I think I'm supposed to be up now. Unfortunately, I'll be in Belgrade until Sunday (watching Eurobasket, as it appers Slovenia is on a good way to be the champion :)), and won't be able to play. So I ask for a swap.

    I declared on the second turn. Lizzie captured 2 cities (oops, one too much) and triggered MPP.

    I easily took our continent and several small islands (thanks to well set-up armies;)), however I had serious difficulties with th larger island between us and England.

    I lost the Gemtown, but manged to raze several English homeland cities.

    However, I made a big mistake leaving Galleons without protection. Simply wasn't used to MoW's. I lost a couple of armies that way :blush:.

    And the save:
