Welcome, Beakmiester! You're right... my invasion might be misconstrued as an attempt to grab all the marbles, and maybe they wouldn't feel so great about that. In reality, I doubted their ability to capture the British Isles on their own.... ...which maybe they might not feel so great about either. But if they have hard feelings, it's tough -- they need to focus on getting their OWN tanks pointed in the right direction!
Thanks for saying hi!
Even if you miss all the English loot, you will still get North Irland (if you can ) and that nice ship building facility.
