Devistating loss for me against Hubert. Life is hard when i have to admit: Hubert is the greatest.

Nelson or Schopen (whoever wins),
I'll be out of the country and away from computers from 6 July to 18 July. Let me know when you guys are able to play your game... if it's before the 6th, we might be able to squeeze ours in before that.

It will be Squeegie vs Nelson instead.

Der Schopenhauer is out this year. Lousy TDC.

Since Zakistan has not even logged in or looked at the forums for over 2 weeks despite the fact he had a match versus Nen outstanding, I doubt very much he will show in the next three days. Since I will be streched for time for a month from thursday onward, I think playing Paars now whilst I have all the time in the world makes sense.

Hubert (Wales) vs Paars (Nicaea)
Hubert has slightly better lands next to Wales, but Paars has slightly better lands within 3 movements of Nicaea.

Turn 7
Hubert 9 lands
Paars 7 lands

Hubert faces 2 large revolts on Turns 9 and 10 (with 4 armies in each land), his lead is gone. 11 lands each on turn 11.

Paars reaches his good lands on turn 11-13, two +2s (dalm & Napoli). He begins to ramp up the points quickly now

Turn 15
Hubert 14
Paars 18

Hubert makes an interesting march into Hungary (30k prim with a fort) and lands 13 armies there before launching a successful attack into paars lands (Serbia) on turn 18. This leaves the potential to take walla or bulg on turn 20. He successfully takes Bulgaria but loses hungary on turn 20.

Turn 19
Hubert 19
Paars 22

Hubert continues marching through Paar’s lands taking Walla on turn 20 but on turn 21 Paars wipes out Hubert’s forces there. Paars continues more growth into neutral lands (and into Lithuania where I once lived) while Hubert maintains his assault on Paars as a more primary objective.

Turn 23
Hubert 20
Paars 25

Hubert takes Paar’s fort in Genoa on turn 24 while Paars moves into Rhineland.

Turn 27
Hubert 23
Paars 27

Paars now owns Africa, Italy & Russia. Hubert owns Spain, France, Germany & Scandinavia. The battle lines are drawn. Empty lands on turn 32 are: Tripoli, Sardinia, Corsica, Morocco, Portugal, Leon, Prussia, Livonia, Finland.

Turn 31
Hubert 30
Paars 31

Hubert continues to push in on Paars and makes some more gains.

Turn 35
Hubert 33
Paars 30

Turn 39
Hubert 34
Paars 31

Turn 43
Hubert 35 (pushing into roma/venetia)
Paars 31 (pushing into finland)

Turn 47 The score graph was fairly even up to this point. Now Hubert has a big lead)
Hubert 37 (Muscovy, Dalm, Algiers)
Paars 29 (Austria)

Turn 52
Hubert 35 - entered Roma again, this time with authority
Paars 31 - regained Algiers, Dalm, and pushed into Finland

Turn 55 Game called
Hubert 39 lands, 245 pop, 107 culture
Paars 28 lands, 165 pop, 76 culture

Fabulous game! Around turn 25 I was willing to bet some nice $$ on Paars, but Hubert pulled it around. Was fun to watch.

Next week = 6th - 12th July? Let's try and get it done before Sunday, as I then go away for a week and conq time is unlikely.
