    I would rather rush IA or the Pentagon. 4 unit armies are much stronger as 3 unit armies and of course they have more health points.

    IA is almost finished if I recall correctly, just 2 more turns or so. Will rush Pentagon, forgot about that. Stronger armies are important when we have to kill infantry.

    We are stil weak compared to everyone. Persia is still very strong. But we can take out all their cities in our
    territory in 1 turn. And they just have slow units, so they can just enter our territory so we should be ok. Lot
    of units will out of Japanese territory though.

    To get to Babylon. We're now much stronger, and could potentially out research the AI now.

    Two questions:
    How we take all the matter seriously? Shal we consider Palace jump (to Brandeburg, say) and research to MA. Or we just push forward with Horses? and see waht will happend?

    Even without jump we should be able to out research the AI. But for domination we don't need more science. Arties work great.

    actually I played 0.75 turn... try to plat to Russia - fail. Star thinking what to do next, but them SGTOM turns appeared...
    Absulutly tierd, so if Ignas take it will be good.

    Played a bit more. Ask Japanise remove and they declare. Now tedious work to hold extended line: Japan has RoP with Russia. Nise to observe Persian Tanks fight vs Japan. Will continue today. If Ignas let me know, when he'd like to play it will be good. new sav attached

    Guess where Russian have Sheakspear?

    Thats always problem, so i never finish solo games. SG a bit easer, as team mates provide some surprises...

    Play a bit more... Captured Kyoto with Leo and Smith. I think it is not much to finish, and probably we will do it "soon".

    Any ideas how to do it in fastest way?

    Next player up. If Ignas quit, TheRat, I guess

    Looking around some of the old Sid threads, this might stand up there with some of the best Sid games (if it ever gets completed). It definitely beats the Magnificent Seven Plus One in my book. Drazek's 20k, and some of the games by Kuningas and Moonsinger probably top it, but this seems in the same class.

    Sid is too much for me, or I would jump in, I think every SG needs fnished or at least a decent burial.
