A final longbow is now left defending Thebes, we attack and capture Thebes! There are 5 resisters.
We try again with Heliopolis the Cavalry will have to earn their upkeep. We win until we meet pikes, then lose. Not daunted we try again, winning, just a Longbow left. We form an Army with the Leader to allow us to get another, then attack the Longbow with an Elite Cavalry, we win, Capturing Heliopolis!
Our Tanks can now reach Byblos. We bombard first though, destroying the Temp, Harbour, Market, Library and kill some citizens, we manage to injure the defending Rifle, kill it with a Tank, and destroy the Pikes with Cavalry. We have taken Byblos!
Next is El-Armarna. We soften it up by bombarding with our Destroyers, then the Artillery, destroying the Market and missing repeatedly We attack with Cavalry, then a Tank, and lose to a 2/4 Rifle!. We continue attacking with Tanks and Cavalry, then finally its over.
We spy on Alexandria a 4/4 rifle is defending. We need more than just Cavalry, so load the recently formed Army with the Giant Stickman, Scourge of Egypt and 2 other Cavalry. We attack Alexandia. The fight goes back and forth, but we win. Two pikes now defend, we attack with Cavalry, 1 retreats but we win. We capture Alexandria and Magellans Voyage. Before our eyes all our ships gain one movement point!
We are now rapidly overrunning Egypt.
We rename Thebes -> Much Ado, Heliopolis ->BlackHoleVille, El-Armarna -> Jetropilis and Alexandria -> St. Ravenaticus. We spy on Memphis defended by Rifles, and Elephantine, only defended by Pikes!

IBT: The Egyptian Infantry in Elephantine injures itself on one of our Cavalry which retreats.
Memphis is first. We bombard, redlining at Rifle, Infantry, Pikeman, injuring another Pike, destroying the Market and killing some Citizens. We attack with Tanks . We kill the Infantry and a Pike, with our first Tank, promoting it to Elite. Our second Tank destroys the Rifle and Pike and is also now Elite! We capture Memphis, which still has a Factory!
Hieraconpolis is next. We bombard, redlining a Rifle and 2 Pikes. A Tank takes out the Rifle, An Elite Cavalry destroys a Pike giving us our second Great Leader (De Gaulle) of the Session.
A second Elite Cavalry attacks the remaining Pike. We win and get another Great Leader (Charlemane)
We capture Hieraconpolis which has 10 Resisters, but still has a Market and Bank.
Elephantine is next in our sights. We bombard with Destroyers and kill one of the Infantry with our Tank Army, but only Cavalry can reach now, well have to wait until next turn. An injured Cavalry breaks the link between Elephantine and Egypts Rubber in the Tundra no more Infantry there! We move some Cavalry up towards Asyut which still has Riflemen defending. No attack until next turn though

War Weariness is just starting to appear, not a problem yet, but will need to be watched. A Settler built in Avon Nova catches the transport with the Settler on the War to the Ice Island. With 2 Settlers we can claim it completely and not have to worry about blocking foreign Settlers.

We Bombard Kahun, defended by two regular Pikeman. We redline them with Artillery, then move in with Cavalry.
