If this is a replay, please indicate 'REPLAY' at the top of your post. If you conduct regular restarts, please indicate 'RELOADS' at the top of your post. More posting helps us all get play better as we understand the methods of others, but want to clearly distinguish between a first run through without reloads and other submissions as it is much harder to recover in game from the mistakes we all make.
 
DV 125

Thanks for the game! Initially thought about setting up a religion but Canada was getting harassed by a barb camp spawning jaguars which made them an easy first target. Canada had forward settled byz making Constantinpole a quick take as well. After knocking those down, used horseman to raid and drive economy while army pushed around the map. Forgot that the Qhapaq Ñan allow you to teleport until near the end of the game, definitely could have shaved some turns there. Had fun with this one!

Religious Victory at turn 280. I had converted every civilization except India at turn 175. It took more than 100 turns to get to that final conversion. One reason for this was that every other civilization banded against me because I took a former city state from Basil II and then they wanted to liberate it. That happened around turn 180.

I rushed as much as I could to get first to a religion but Russia beat me to it so I started to convert his cities resulting that he started a war against me.

My focus otherwise was to get as many cities as possible between the mountains in the west and Canada/Byzanthium in the east and then build a Holy Site in each city.

DV turn 101

Quick and dirty conquest. I settled just two cities, then started spamming warriors and archers which did most of the work.
I pondered for a while how to overcome that mountain barrier in the west until I realized that I had the Qhapaq Nan.
Overall, I met hardly any serious resistance, and somehow even got a great prophet 3 turns before victory (which of
course didn't make a difference at this point).

Short Fun game - thanks!
