Oh man.  I've been ready to write this for a while, so here goes:

Beginning of the game:
I had the whole thing figured out... I was going to ally with Attica and Messenia against Laconia to wipe him out quickly.  Meanwhile, I was going to do my best to convince Elia and Boeotia to attack Aetolia.  Clearly it didn't go as planned.  Attica attacked Boeotia and Messenia attacked Elia and I was left almost alone against Laconia.  So, I did my best to mend that relationship and turned against Attica.

Mid-game:
I quickly realized that the only way to attack Attica effectively was a massive convoy.  But, with the too-quick growth of Aetolia, I couldn't afford to send one of my armies over there.  So, I offered the job to Boeotia.  Since he was down to his last unit, he took it.  That left me able to
defend the main peninsula as well as I could.  As Aetolia got close to the solo, conversations abounded about what it would take to get Attica on-board.  So much of the discussion was about who was the actual person letting Aetolia win, and I was pretty sure it wasn't me, since I had never worked with him once.  I don't remember the details, but I know the solution included another big convoy of Boeotia's unit back to the mainland.

Late-game:
Once the tide had turned, it was just a question of how far it would go.  I trusted Laconia (though the line at the end made me nervous) and I think he trusted me.  I was a little disappointed that Attica didn't devote himself more to the attack, but I suppose the early game gave him reason to suspect us.  I'm happy with the result (it's my best result yet) and I look forward to playing you all again.

Diplomacy games may contain lying, stabbing, or deliberately deceiving communications that may not be suitable for and may pose a hazard to young children, gullible adults, and small farm animals.
