     - **Post-ISOT** - Even by the end of the first week, you will realize that the only way to entertain yourself in the game is to invade other countries. If you have followed my write-up advice, you should be playing the strongest country in the region. Concentrate mainly on the War thread, posting your military movements and conflicts in need of resolution. However, I suggest that you hurry, or else the players who ISOTed smaller countries are already kicking themselves and trying to quit.     - **Post-ISOT** - Even by the end of the first week, you will realize that the only way to entertain yourself in the game is to invade other countries.

   - **Post-gameplay** - After two weeks of gameplay, everything that could have been accomplished in the ME is accomplished. You should **remember to drink, eat and shave** while you wait in anticipation for the game to proceed at 3 in-game days to 1 real day. The War thread should now have more unresolved conflicts than resolved ones, and the Gameplay thread should have degenerated into retconning past events. By this point, you can quietly drop out, but I suggest you post an idea for a new ME game.   - **Post-gameplay** - After two weeks of gameplay, everything that could have been accomplished in the ME is accomplished.

 +==== History ====
  
 From its infancy on the [[offtopic:​Old Board]] (currently being charted), Mosaic Earth and its spin-offs have created a niche on the AH.com board. It survived the migration to the New Board, spewing a chaos of threads during the first year of existence. By 2005, the games became more organized, and this superior bureaucracy gave birth to Mosaic Earth 7, consider by many the pinnacle of Shared Worlds. In its wake came the well-patterned games of Late '05 and First Quarter 2006. However, the quality of the games soon started to decline, part to the competition presented from Feudal Lands, A Little Trip and their spin-offs. Mosaic World games, organized exclusively by [[offtopic:​Ward]],​ have faired extremely poorly, with the exception of the 1st and 4th installments. However, the majority of the oldest ME-players abandoned the game in 2006. From its infancy on the [[offtopic:​Old Board]] (currently being charted), Mosaic Earth and its spin-offs have created a niche on the AH.com board.
