The Southern Hemisphere Integration Treaty bit will have me chuckling for a while.

when that city of yours gets established between the two halves of portugeuse land... its gonna be a pissed off Pia... very unlikely you'll get that defensive pact extended... I can see some dark clouds in your great empire's future

Well it's not like he has much choice.  It's either expand, or eventually wither and die...

I'm wondering how much trouble that new Brit city of Port Sudan is likely to be.  Otherwise, though, sounds like everything is going quite swimmingly at the moment!

So I discovered this AAR today and just read parts 1-6 and became addicted. Maybe I'm missing something simple but is there an index to this? I know that part 9 is on the front page but I can't find parts 7 or 8 anywhere!  :o

HUzzah!

Front page > AARs drop down (right below the logo on the left) > Civ V Africa

Or here: http://grogheads.com/?cat=119
index of the entire category, counting backwards from current


We're going to get a better sortable/searchable index by the end of the year.  It's one of my personal goals.  But I gotta talk to my dev first about his free time.

Is Ethiopia on some kind of tear up north that both Belgium and Egypt are so eager to take it out?  For that matter, I don't understand why they don't simply team up together and leave you out of it...  ???

Good luck with your "Kaliningrad’ed" (can you even use it like that?) city.   :)
