In game Game 12866031
Blue (jmiglior) took an early commanding lead by having little resistance in Africa. I wanted to have an understanding with Green in North America so that things didn’t get out of hand to the point where the game would be over in a few rounds so we set a truce… my intent was for it to only last a couple of rounds until things settled down and the playing field was leveled.
Blue set up a truce with Red (Deltafarce) the next turn which I didn’t blame him for especially since Red was near elimination and easy to form an alliance with. No big deal but as things continued to go in Blue’s favor and the game was reaching the point of no return Red agreed to break the truce with Blue in Round 12. The next two turns he continued to attack Green. The last turn taken he turned in a set and had a chance to break 5 of Blue’s bonuses but did not take one.
After being made aware of another game in which the same alliance was made to the advantage of one player and not the other, I discovered in their chat that they agreed to continue the truce (this was just prior to Red’s last move mentioned above).

2013-06-26 22:31:54 - jmiglior: feels good to have a loyal partner red, I wont attack you. Green is finally losing grip of the game
2013-06-26 22:32:18 - jmiglior: Hope our truce can last till the end in both games
2013-06-27 11:36:53 - Deltafarce: sounds good to me
At the time both players only had two active games going (the two posted) so the reference is to the other game that I’m in.
If you look at the time stamps and the game play… it’s obvious that the truce continued in the first game despite the chat saying different. If I missed anything or you need more information please let me know.
