  • During the game many things happened. We (the americans) keep trying to attack the British soldiers, but we keep
  • The nations involved in this war are France, Spanish, America, and Great Britain. The colonies involved in the war are the Americans and The British.
  • Summary of Strategy:
  • As the Americans, we have created our own strategy to destroy the British. We will try to herd the Brits into the center and surround them with our troops. While in the center, we'll try to kill them off one by one. If we can't move them into the center, we'll just try to kill the British troops on the outside to only leave the British in the center. Another strategy of ours is to kill the stragglers' . As in try to kill off the single dots of British men.
  • During game play, it was very hard to fallow our strategy. We couldn't exactly herd them into the middle, but we could try to kill the stragglers first. Something did come up though, the French and Spanish joined us in our battle to slay the British. With their help we've been targeting single little groups of the Brits. A huge help in this game for us are the frigates. They help us destroy the soldiers on the port cities.
  • Once the game ended we reviewed our game play. Really, the herding strategy didn't work at all. We started with us, the Americans in the center and the British around us. This wasn't a problem though. A strategy we did fallow and obey was to target small concentrations of Brits. So instead of attacking a whole mass of soldiers, we just attacked one at a time. This helped us steadily take them down.
  • Summary of Strategy:
  • Our strategy to destroy the British is to use our frigates to take out all the British frigates and their port cities which they have captured. When we get the the chance to choose advances in our civilization, we will try to get frigates. Frigates are a big fighting ship with many cannons on either side. Both sides have frigates so we must be careful to take care of things. Another plan we have is to do direct sharp attacks with small groups of soldiers on cities they have taken.
  • WE GOT BOSTON BACK! With a combination of our frigates and a continental soldier or two, we pwned! As we progress through the game, we see what the Revolutionary War was all about. Eventually, we became allies with Spain's King Carlos III. With this strong ally we had the advantage over the British. We also got a hospital to help injured soldiers. Some of the bigger British ships killed our frigates! And because that was our major defense, it kinda screwed us up.
  • When we finished our game we had beat the Brits, 129 to 116. As much as we love our frigates, they aren't necessarily the best defense we could have. It might have been a good idea to get some more foot soldiers to attack our enemies. And I absolutely adore The Biebz! The Biebz (aka- Justin Drew Bieber) looks like an Russian pre school girl. Although we all love him, he really does look like a chick. Learning Support Students- Special grading considerations may be developed by the child study team for identified students.
  • This week:
  • Our plan in Civ this week is to get Boston back from the Brits. We are planning on accomplishing this by using direct combat, and shooting with all our might. Through doing this, we will hopefully gain power and conquer. Only time and hard work will tell.
  • During this game play, we have been trying vigorously to kill the British, yet we have been failing so far. Because of Colleen's idiocy, we have fallen into a dying trap. With Diana back to leader, we will try even harder to accomplish our set goals. Unable to get back to the top, we have decided to start again, fresh and new. We can now only wish and pray to God that he will guide us to victory.

December 15, 2010
We, being the Brits, want to TOTALLY DOMINATE the Colonists. We shall accomplish this by attacking the Colonists constantly. Tori is going to try to create an alliance between the French and hopefully Spanish. We shall send the frigates into all the ports to protect the cities we have power over. Boston will be one of our major targets to try to take over.
