When it says trade with the Levant, it doesn't actually mean: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Levant Surprised

Fortunately, my secretary of trade gave me an earful on my closing of trade missions, so I get to be schizo and just reopen them. A few pounds wasted and a lesson learned.

The more we look at our game turns,the more we can find to do. Hence the greater the cost. So it is best not to look at the turn too much.I admit, i fail on that score,and end up paying extra fees every single turn.In fact, it often costs me treble the basic turn. Worth it though.

Haha. Ok, nice to know my triple the cost turns aren't completely out of line with you other crazies.

Too much to do, too little time, money and recruits :-)

On another note, I must change fonts for the newspaper. I like that font, but it is practically unreadable.

In game money I meant. I'm doing fine in real life. The benefit of playing the game in my mid 40s rather than my 20s!

I was speaking in game terms... My position in the game has generated massive returns on investment. Truly the way the Lion was supposed to be!

Well, nothing surprising about a smaller position struggling a bit, I"m sure, though I think my position must have been out of play for a while.

Anybody else have any amusing stories of first year in game screw ups that they want to share?
