Hi all,
TWWT (Twin World Wonders Two, see http://starsautohost.org/sahforum/index.php?t=msg&th=254 2&start=0&rid=423) is finally over. At year 2481, the last remaining player with planets left (me) has given up. Congratulations to Iztok for winning this great game. It has been a no-talk-game, so don't wonder if we write about it now Smile
A short introduction: everyone has started with two Homeworlds. Eric (Raindancer) has done a great job creating the universe and setting up the game as the center was completely clear of players and everyone had exactly two neighbours. You can think of it as a ring. The players and races:

A B C D

H G F E

A: the Kee (Aaron, IS)
B: the Pirates (Stuart, IS)
C: the Roar (wizard, JOAT)
D: the Fu/Munchkin (Pieter, SS)
E: the Deck of Cards (Micha, SS)
F: the J (iztok, JOAT)
G: the Harmony (Joe, JOAT?)
H: the Fungus (Ptolemy, CA)

In short, from my point of view:
The J started to attack their neighbours very early and killed the Harmony Homeworlds quite soon, the Deck of Cards a bit later. I started a bit later, killing the aggressive Pirates in about 2450. The Kee took over one of the Fungus HWs a bit later, which I used to attack the Kee in return. The J won a hard fight against the Fu and took the other Fungus HW later. Neither the J nor I could secure the defeated Fu HWs, so it came to kind of a showdown over there. With some luck, I killed part of the J main fleet and tried to take the second Fu HW as my eigth world (victory condition). Iztok had seven secured worlds by then - I never understood why he didn't take the second Fungus world. Instead, he attacked me at the Kee HWs to stop me from winning - effectively, as I had lost the main part of my west fleet to the Kee. This last year, iztok managed to kill my second planet and, at the same time, my main fleet in the east. This was the time to give up - facing the loss of more HWs, not being able to do much against it.

Well, all in all, I can say that iztok won due togood skill, good strategy, mostly good tactics, and lots of micromanagement. I am content with being a good second Smile

Hoping to read more from all of you and looking forward to the next game Smile
