  10. Decades, even centuries pass by before a civilization acquires new technologies and advanced civics - why do you think it takes so long?

Plan: We chose an american colony. We want to start by taking over Boston. 10 ships are going to attack the eastern sea board of the colonies, then we are going to move west. After we move west we are going to go up to Canada.

The initial plan didn't work out too well. We took over Boston, but our ship plan didn't work. We couldn't get enough ships in the water at once and they were too small. Their ship were 5 times bigger and so much more powerful. So we have to go for the cities to gain power. We are splitting in half, some are going north, some are going west, and some are going south.

All of our cities are rebuilt. More men are helping, and we are slowly moving west. Next time we need more men and ships for defence. Next time we will send two colonies to Halifax and then once we attack them, we will move to Quebec.1. What does a “settler” represent in the general expansion of civilizations in history?

1. Our strategy today is to concur New York city we want to do this so we can slowly expand. We concur with our soldiers and boats. We also want to attack other cities.
2. We made some military advances. We are decreasing enemies city defenses.
3. Unfortunately we did not concur New York city. We did lower its defenses. We did this by using our ships. Next week we will be able to concur it.

1. Our plan is to move our troops north then turn westward attacking York, Montrail,and Qubec. Our southern forces will take out Florida then move west to the spanish and make an alliance with them. Then look for an alliance with the french to supplie forces with new technology that will help in the heat of battle. Lastly I plan to gain naval advantage in naval combat by, relentlous counter attacks.

2. We are exploring the southern region of Florida. We lost 4 guys in an attack, and now we are going to regroup with the northern army. We are slowly losing Portland. They are gaining back Quebec and portland.

3. We gained two cities, but then the british gained them back. Spain and France both declared war on the British, so that will make the British less powerful. They will help us regain our cities.

1. We are going to take all of our calvary from all of the colonies and move north and split them up at New York City.One half will take Albany and continue north. The other half will more past Boston and continue to Halifax to help the French. After we take Halifax we will meet with other half and continue to take over the North. This is what we will do to take over the British.

2. So far the units are all moving up north and the plan is going well. But it is is taking awhile to move the forces up to the north.We took over Albany and Boston and kept moving north. Also we discovered that the defence is dropping and giving the British a chance to take over some of the town's. We started to send units down to help defend the towns to the south. We also hope the french will start to help with the colonies to the north. This is what happened during the game.

3. Today we took over Boston and Albany. We had to move all of the units from the south up to the north. The French finally showed up and started to move their ships into our perimiter. We lost men taking over Albany and Boston. This is what we did today.

1. Today in our conquest to victory against the british forces in portland, montreal. We are going to send reinforcement to Portland and were also going to try to negotiate with the french. We are going to talk to the french and the spanish without cannons because are guns arent that great. If we can get cannons we can defend are city.

2. The British took Boston and now were trying to get it back. Were surrounded with the british to the north, south, east, and west. The city's are building up there inner defences for the massive counter attack's by the british, and there militia. Also we told the French to attack Montreal and try to take over the city. And finally we started to build cannons to strengthen our defences. This is what happened in the middle of the game.

3. Today we have not got anymore cities. We lost Boston to the british, and no one else is helping. The french have not done anything to help, we have asked them to fight against the british but they did not. Also, the spanish have not been helping us either. The Spanish will not make a trade with us because we are allies with the french. We are going to try to make a navy and take back the cities.

Today we are going on full defence from florida to new york. Our goal is to lead the british into a trap with our calvay. If this works we can push the enemy out of boston. Our only hope is the french will help us.

So far we have lost boston, and new york but the french are moving in to boston to help us. Were sending reinforcement to philadelphia because philadelphia is being surroned. Despite are brave effort to defend the city of philadelphia and we were defend by the lack of support by the french and spanish.

We lost. So we started over again, as the British colony. We did not lose any cities. But we did get the american men out of Boston. We moved all of our ship around, for defence. Our ships attacked a few cities and next time we will have to go into the cities and take over.

We are now adding a forge but we have no clue what it does! Right now we are going to invade New York and Philly. We just added a barreck . we just took Portland and New York.
