Players:

This was a game intended to guide three newbies into the game of Empire. Mentat was a more experienced player, while Gletsjer played his second game here. The other three were totally new to the game.

As soon as the planes could practically cross the map, the fighting began for real, ending in a solo nuke fest by Mentat.

Final power, report *, version and 3 map snapshots:
