    So many Barbs, so many floods, so many volcanic eruptions. I waited til Swordsmen to go acquire the Southern neighbors and probably should have just gone with Warriors. Terrible Campus spots in the homeland but thankfully the South built me some nice ones.

    My counterspy killed the Spy who blew up my main Mainz Spaceport but they still accomplished their sabotage. There went 3 Turns!

    Turn 245 SV, 1845 score.

    Nice and easy game where I didn't rush anything and focused first on establishing my empire by poking china and few city states and then switching to science.
    Religion was first thing to go for since that volcano offers great spots for holy sites...it would be a shame to let it slip.
    I settled only 5 cities and took the rest from neighbours...with china first, and hawk boy when I got to artillery beacuse I didn't want to bother breaking through his +10 again golden age civs perk.
    All ages were golden and I ended up as suz of most city states.
    Only suprise in game was that ******* volcano next to capital which blew up atleast 6-7 times. It was soooo annoying to repair stuff all the time. Also amount of barbs on the map was so big I had to keep several units in homeland just counter constant camp spawn :(

    Map is great for hansa shuffeling, I managed to get +12 in capitol...going to start game again to see if I can get it better this time.

    I took over my continent and a good chunk of the other one. However, I got too distracted building districts and buildings.

    I don't think I was militant enough at the beginning. Turn 357, score of 1234. But, it was fun and my first GOTM. Thanks for doing this!

    My game isn't valid. I restarted the map after realizing what a sweet spot there was for a +15 production hansa, and decided to just have a fun builder game. (After murdering everyone else on my continent of course).

    With that said, my spaceship reached it's destination on turn 221.
    Here are some screenshots!

    T207 SV - *Not a valid entry. Accidentally captured the last enemy capital when I wasn't paying attention. I assumed the one without walls wasn't the capital... and was wrong. Exoplanet expedition arrived on turn 207.

    - How many cities did you settle or capture?
    Settled 7, captured all the rest except 12 CS.​
    - What did you prioritize for research and policies?
    Went hard at iron working for swordsman because there weren't horses nearby. Kind of wish I had just done an archer rush at Vilinius. Wanted to leverage Oligarchy so I teched Caravels and then Musketman.​
    - Did you bother with religion?
    Yes, went for one late. The first world congress banned great prophet points, so I didn't get one established until the Renaissance.​
    - How did you pump your science??
    Got some +3 campuses on the West coast next to reefs. Luckily, Mapuche had some +3's already build when I conquered it. Took the Stewardship belief because I knew I would have campuses and CH's in most cities. In hindsight I with I had gone Choral Music. Built more campuses in the new world because there were tons of chops. Built Oxford.​
    - Were City-States helpful?
    The double XP from Kabul was great for early warring. Wish I had taken over some of the other military CS's since they didn't help much. Brussels made wonders easy to build. In general, all the industrial CS's buffed the Hansa's.
    **Possible bug? Granada's Alcaazar's weren't giving bonus science for appeal. This bug also happened for me with an earlier GotM. The Ottoman one, I think.​
    - Any surprises you ran into, how did you deal with it?
    Lost a few turns at the end because my Spaceport in Berlin got submerged. It was worth to build it on a peninsula, Cape Canaveral style. Was surprised to be low on gold the whole game. Buying tiles for Hansa placement ate up a lot. Had a nice chop city set up for the moon landing, but couldn't get enough gold to buy a spaceport there. Ended up hard-building two spaceports in two of my main cities.​
    - Did you enjoy the game?
    Very much. I thought the map was great for Germany.​

    T255, 1772 points

    - How many cities did you settle or capture?
    First settled 3 cities north before capturing all China cities and then all Mapuche. Also conquered one CS (and kept one that the Mapuche had conquered), for a total of 11 captured cities. I also founded a few more cities North, one South for great campus adjacency. Ended up founding 8 cities, though I still don't understand how I got that last settler.

    - What did you prioritize for research and policies?
    Tried mostly to head straight to the ones needed for CV victory... forgot once again that the ones to gain speed for the spaceship were hidden at the end...

    - Did you bother with religion?
    Not at all

    - How did you pump your science??
    Campuses, campuses everywhere !

    - Were City-States helpful?
    A bit for wonder building and keeping up on culture

    - Any surprises you ran into, how did you deal with it?
    Lots of barbarians !

    - Did you enjoy the game?
    Yes ! Even if it proves once more I am OK at ensuring victory but not that great at optimizing for low turn victory.

    SV turn 276, score 2972

    Was aiming for under t250, but messed up the research and couldn't build the Lagrange or Terrestrial lasers for 15t after launch of the Exoplanet Exp. That was the first time I didn't greatly overshoot the tech needed, and instead underestimated. I think it had to do with AI opponents being so lame and having not much to even pillage. I think there were 5 AI remaining when I completed Rocketry... at the end, I had 6 City State vassals, and the only AI city remaining was the Mongol capitol... I own the rest.

    Fun game up to Rocketry, then just taking out frustrations on helpless AI.

    Turn 350, Score 1756

    Much of the late game was sending settlers and builders off to get strategic resources: oil, aluminum and uranium. Without thinking I promoted cavalry to unneeded helicopters and suddenly I couldn't build bombers.

    I shut down all my coal plants so my only need for coal was one battleship but by then the climate damage was done so I had blizzards and tormados destroying my tanks and rocket artillery in remote corners of the map. It was a good lesson in the consequences of early decisions.

    Turn 301, Score 1792, First GotM!

    - How many cities did you settle or capture?
    Settled 5, captured 7

    - What did you prioritize for research and policies?
    Actually I did not really fastforwarded into the relevant technologies / policies. Just tried to unlock keywonders before the AI, which was easy on 'King'

    - Did you bother with religion?
    Yes, I founded 'Protestantism' with 'choral music' and the 'stupa'. Usually I build quite a lot of holy sites, even if not playing for a RV, so I can ensure some decent culture and faith for either buying settlers / builders with monumentality. But this game, there were so many barbariens and thus archaeological relics, that culture came in via theatre squares.

    - How did you pump your science??
    Well, compared to others, I suppose I did not pump science, as I should have. I had nothing more than several +3 campuses and should have build more of them earlier. In the end, I had only +680 science per turn and ran into one special problem, as I'll mention down below.

    - Were City-States helpful?
    Well, not really, besides Preslaw and Hongonk being a good buffer-zone against Lautaro.

    - Any surprises you ran into, how did you deal with it?
    Well, this was my first game with Germany ever. I was surprised by the amount of barbarians I had to fend off. Luckily I did build a sufficient army early, as I wanted to make use of Germanys bonus against CS (5 out of the 7 cities I took, were CS. To be precise, Armagh, Vilnius, Babylon, Kabul and Ngazargamu). As a positive side-effect, the amount of archaeological relics was extremely high as well. That meant a lot of culture ... which I could actually use, since Germany can build one district above the normal limit. I suppose I would have build less theatre squares, if it had not been for that extra slot. I was pleasantly surprised by the strength of the Hansas and I was able to build a very pleasing Hansa triangle, of which I'll attach a screenshot. I hope @Sostratus is proud of my doing. I had 4 cities with +160 production, which I had not achieved before.
    It was also the first time I attempted a SV (mostly CV before that) and I had to learn the hard way, that having multiple spaceports does not make sense before the last project ... and this only once you can build laser stations. So I had the situation, that once I could launch the earth sattelite, 8 space ports were either finished or being built. Thanks to some woods being chopped and the royal society, I did finish that project in notime and it was by then that noticed, that I had not advanced enough to directly start the next project. And so this situation repeated each step along the way to my first SV. Finishing the project in 3-4 turns, then wait. And then my exoplanet-expedition travelled with one light-year per turn and I did not have the techno to build laserstations yet ... I had already travelled for 27 turns, until I could build those lasers ... which lead to me travelling 9 light years per turn in the end.
    So lesson learned: I need more science to progress faster along the tech tree so that I can actually smoothly skim through those five projects without waiting for the next project to unlock. I need more than one spaceport only for the last project.

    - Did you enjoy the game?
    I did enjoy the game a lot, yes. I think it allowed the player to experiment with Germanys unique abilities quite nicely. As I like to observe the AI's doing - and knowing that it would not really compete with my victory - I was kind of suprised, that Mongolia actually took out Mali quite early - even before I actually knew that Mali was ingame. It was not before I launched the earth-sattelite, that I learned that Niani belonged to Mongolia.

    T187 SV Victory but not valid as I accidentally got a dom victory at 160, reloaded and continued.
    Spoiler :

    - How many cities did you settle or capture?
    I built no settlers, first time ever. I captured 4 through the game but they were pretty irrelevant. I captured every city on the board but 1 and kept about 13 CS
    - What did you prioritize for research and policies?
    Iron working first then up to Hansa's.
    - Did you bother with religion?
    Nope but at abiout T120 I gained a religion as not many others had bothered.
    - How did you pump your science??
    Capturing cities fast and chopping in the buildings
    - Were City-States helpful?
    In so many ways, they were nice meat to start and Amagh made for a great main spaceport.
    Vilnius had iron under it which was a nice surprise.
    - Any surprises you ran into, how did you deal with it?
    The lack of gold at the start was challenging and good, just had to curb my normal wasteful spending
    - Did you enjoy the game?
    Very much so, Fred is a great SV chap
    However I hated the level 4 disasters. Barbs I can cope with but tornadoes wrecking my spaceport is a step too far for me.
    upload_2020-3-17_12-27-10.png

    Messed up a lot with the end game just because I was rushing the game too much. Certainly could shave 25 turns off it in a replay with a better laser finish and better culture.

    T306 SV. Just watched some video about high production IZ and saw that we got Hansa so thought I'd get as much out of 'em as possible and sorta forgot about the SV and still managed to misplace some districts to lose out on production...and Ruhr.... :cringe: Also I can't get my head around why I can't put a damn dam there? Because it's in the outer edge of river?

    First game in a long time so everything was kinda hassle and all over the place like my typical games with my goldfish memory. Managed to avoid violence quite long, but then China started to flex his muscles against Vilnius (?) so I had to step in to defend my vassal(?) or whatever is the "opposite" of suzerain? And then Lautaro finished Chinas last city. Then it went peaceful right until the end where Lautaro and Victoria decided to attack me simultaneously, but I managed to fend off both with one GDR's bombardment for each front xD

    Had tons of fun again! Even managed to "dodge" openings actions thread when the game just suddenly added 100 turns to turn timer :nono:


    Spoiler Why I can't put dam there? :

    Spoiler This was supposed to be in opening actions at turn 100, but somehow 88 extra turns got in there? :

    you need 2 sides of a hex to have river along them. So many things conspire against perfection that often it feels intentional.
