Ulster (mmmattt) - Hanover (ghost/sCum) - Lithuania (IceQueen)
Grenada (crazygod) - Roma (empError) - Nicaea (kreatora3)
Thanks to many 1-army countries around, I had a great start, contrary to ghost. I took Ile de France, to help crazygod in the Brittany-Gascony stand-off. A developed Burgundy helped my start further. IceQueen quickly got the upper hand in the east, I believe also thanks to some good lands. I confronted ghost, and thanks to many first moves, even first 3 moves for me sometimes, I was all over his front lands. I also took England once. IceQueen had a 27:21 opportunity at Nicaea and got first move, but didn't get it. Crazygod started to battle seriously only after advancing Ile de France, by which time IceQueen was strongly knocking on Nicaea's door, and threatening my east flank. I was pretty strong though, and kreatora did a great job upholding the defenses. I helped a bit by taking Serbia, but Ice was stronger, and I resorted mainly to defending. sCum had replaced ghost, and he could move forward a bit, but he also had to help mmmattt against crazygod, who was now invading England. sCum got cut in Burgundy once, crazygod got cut in England later. I forgot at which winter, but IceQueen got to Nicaea. I tried to help out, but a bit later I lost my cap to Ice. I got it back and lost it again in autumn, and kreatora was also just getting and losing it, for some turns. Then crazygod finally got to Ulster, after mmmatt had failed to buy troops there, apparently giving up. Crazygod had sufficient armies to have a go at Hanover a bit later. He got to Holland with a large force, but needed first turn to take Hanover. Although he spent his first moves in the UK, his fourth move or so was still before sCum's first, so that Hanover fell too.
mmmattt gave up and left, and sCum felt like conceding too, and he also left, leaving IceQueen no other option than to concede too. It was turn 61 by then.
