    Today we lost New York City, we received more units and ships from England, we destroyed a french transport and a french frigate. We are trying to take New York back, by moving our soldiers around.
    Today we lost New York, and we couldn't get it back. Next time we are here, our plan is to take New York back, which will make us stronger, so then we can overtake the rest of their cities.
    The nations territorially involved in North American and with the British American colonies were difficult to negotiate with at times.

    2.) We continued to bombard and attack our newfound enemies, Spain. We continued to move our new forces from Halifax southwards, and they are near Philadelphia right now. We plan to have them attack the surrounding colonies like Richmond and Baltimore. Also, the French ship has harbored right next to our colony of Boston. Boston is currently defenseless due to the fact that we have moved all our Regulars to Philadelphia.
    3.) We played a smart game today. We decided and made our choices carefully as we placed Regulars and Cannons down the east coast. We also inched our Regulars towards the Spanish colonies. Our score dramatically improved as we started the day off with 145, and ended with 157 for today. I think we are doing exceptional.
    Week 12
    1.) Lately we have been gaining a lot of points by just creating many regulars and stationing them in our various cities to stand guard. We decided it would be best to create more forces to send at one time, then sending various forces and getting killed one at a time. It's working better and we are going to stick with our plan.
    2.) We realized finally that you can put troops in ships and transport them to places! Now that we can do that, we can move our troops to the western territories like the Spanish colonies.
    3.) We finished the day with 2 less points then we started with, but with our new plan, we will probably do better next time. We feel we are in a comfortable position to takeover some of the American colonies next time.
