Had him bottled up there by one of my knights for the whole game while I finished off the rest of the map. Then I went in and took one hex at a time, letting him spend all his savings.
I started a demo and watched it run, got world 2515. There's a donut-shaped island here with a city on the inner coast. One of the players built up a sizable fleet in there - 2 battleships, a destroyer, a sub, a couple transports, but they had nowhere to go. The game is still running with another pl...
