This is also fun to do with random games, just type in random 7 digit numbers after this link:

http://warlight.net/MultiPlayer?GameID=*******

For example, this one that claims to be the first game ever played:

http://warlight.net/MultiPlayer?GameID=1000045

Although there are some other games before this one, but the map is old and no longer playable, so it must have been the beta version or something:

You can even read the archived public chat, although many of the early 1000000's dont have any chat.

And apparently Bracketology was the first map, I expected small earth would have been the first though.

So I've been having some fun looking at past games for a while, and found some notable games in the past. I do have reason to believe though that these games are not in order of creation date, as evidenced by these two games:
First 2v2 ever! http://warlight.net/MultiPlayer?GameID=1000122
2v2 #3 http://warlight.net/MultiPlayer?GameID=1000012
But it's still fun to go back and see what people were doing. Here's some fun games I've found with the reasons they're interesting:

Shogun's $5 Challenge: Anthony 01 http://warlight.net/MultiPlayer?GameID=1000075
A money match! No chat log here, and some interesting settings. Shogun managed to steal that $5 off of Anthony though, due to a better starting position.

Alliance Game http://warlight.net/MultiPlayer?GameID=1000009
The first GameID with a chatlog, although there are earlier messages chronologically I thought I'd mention this anyways. Not too special otherwise.

asdf http://warlight.net/MultiPlayer?GameID=1000011
The first GameID with a first turn boot! Also it's on Bracketology. Nothing too interesting other than that though.

Newbie game http://warlight.net/MultiPlayer?GameID=1000062
A huge chatlog and the first extra-long game on Warlight, at 415 turns.
Lightningbolt - "Nobody but crazy people want to play that long!"

day-after-tomorrow http://warlight.net/MultiPlayer?GameID=1000021
A sequel to the previous game, it's worth mentioning that all the players in these days seem to know each other personally.

Dude - Don't Collude http://warlight.net/MultiPlayer?GameID=1000038
A large FFA with a small chatlog. Troll once again proves his dominance in the early days of Warlight. Nothing overly special here, but the title shows how alliances in FFAs are frowned upon even early on.

Don't Speak http://warlight.net/MultiPlayer?GameID=1000125
A 2v2v2v2 match, which could contain the first spoken message ever on Warlight.
Sept. 17, 2008; Fizzer - "Even though chat is now available, this is still a 'Don't speak' game. Using the 'team chat' is forbidden in this game!"
I'm unsure if this means normal chat and team chat were released at the same time, or if this was merely the first instance of a team chat. Still, there's plenty of public chat logs after that if you're interested. Fizzer also talks of why booting a teammate can't result in the other player taking control of their territories.

Nofoggamenight http://warlight.net/MultiPlayer?GameID=1000057
This game has a chat message that's a close second to the earliest chat log mentioned previously.
Shogun - "Gaia has LOTS of armies still!"
But my favourite quote of the game?
Lightningbolt - "Heaven's to betsy people! It's just a game!"

a sentient suit of armor http://warlight.net/MultiPlayer?GameID=1000043
A mysterious title... And a victory by Fizzer over the very strong player Troll. Fizzer points out the turn of the winning move in the chat, but other than that nothing overly special. (Edited, sorry Fizzer!)

We need to talk http://warlight.net/MultiPlayer?GameID=1000129
Right up there with the earliest chat logs on Warlight, this was the first behind the scenes game created to give two players a chance to talk in the midst of a FFA. Sneaky... Think it still happens?

Pandemonium http://warlight.net/MultiPlayer?GameID=1000123
One of the largest games ever played on Warlight, at 1002 turns, although it no longer holds the record. It contains a chat log that takes place over the course of 1 year and about 3 months. I haven't looked over the whole thing, but it's got some good moments in it. Here's one golden moment of jokes near the end:
Troll - "How do you turn soup into gold? ... Add 24 carrots!"
Gaia - "har har...I know, I asked for it."
Gaia - "How does the man in the moon get his hair cut?"
Fizzer - "NASA satellite bombing?"
Gaia - "Eclipse it!"
Fizzer - "Jolly good show!"

And a victory by Troll over Fizzer

Excuse me? I won that game!

I do have reason to believe though that these games are not in order of creation date

They weren't sequential in the early days. But the "Created Date" listed in the settings is correct, so you can always tell which game really came first.

I have to say that warlight gets better and better if I view the first games.
Also the maps are getting better and better.

Oh! What a coincidence! The first one is actually the one we are creating in our Clan Roleplayers Realm. Dameon has been working on it and I've made some artwork yet not published in the map. And we are also seeking help in naming the unnamed territories so if someone wants to help a list of the unnamed regions would be appreciated.

Oh dear, you've found my map on your first try (or so i'll assume since you mentioned it first). I've got around 10 versions of the map, and you've yet to find the latest one ;). ETA until public release is still very far away since the territories you see are only about 3/5th of all territories planned for final version, but I'll be hosting games for testing the map in the coming weeks!
