Of course, I did it in Gunboat, and it's easier when enemies can't coordinate a defense.

Wow, you really did just go out and get an 18 solo with 12 units. That game finished yesterday. Grats.

In an forum game, namely Heptarchy I managed to go from 12 to 20 Supply in the last year, by capturing 9 SCs and losing one. The goal was 19.

I wasn't even trying for this one, but I just got myself another game with a differential of 6 units/centers.

Took over a surrendered Russia in Spring '01, knocked this out by Fall '07....the fleet in Tunis and army in Gascony were both built in St. Pete.

I'm glad I made this thread a while ago. It's not just the low total units that are so interesting, it's the stories thag go along with them :mrgreen:

I think this is the lowest total that I have seen. Pretty impressive too, because I looked at the game and saw that there were no surrenders. 12 was my lowest, and I don't think I remember seeing any 11s.
You don't know what I'm thinking...because I don't know what I'm doing.
