During my game, I noticed that Peter Stuyvesant issued his DOI, so I hustled some troops up to his colonies to make sure he didn't win, and I got there too late he was about pretty much wiped out except for one city. I noticed that his conquered cities that my guys were next to was lightly defended by the kings troops, so I decided to pick a fight with his king but couldn't. The game wouldn't let me attack his city or units, just share the same squares. The king showed up on my diplomancy screen but I couldn't talk to him to declare war. I even walked around his cities looting and pillaging everything in sight, to no avail. I would have been sweet to start a war with the Dutch king, and then get my monarch off of his tax raising butt to help me out of a tight spot, only to face the same troops he rescued after I issued my DOI. I think I'll go back in time to shortly before Peter's DOI and get my guys up there and see how the Dutch king feels if I bogart a city he's attacking.
