    Civ Fanatics Competition: Fastest STANDARD SETTINGS Deity Culture Victory


    Welcome to the Civ Fanatics Competition (CFC) where we will find out who can pull off the fastest deity culture victory on a game with ALL STANDARD SETTINGS!

    Everyone plays Civ with their own 'standard' I know, but the game gives some 'standard' settings to us and many of us will regularly play them. This competition is meant to see who can achieve the fastest victory on those 'standard' settings.

    ***

    Rules


    To make sure it’s a fair competition, make sure to:



    • Not cheat and/or use exploits (you know when you have, it’s that subtle feeling of shame when you post a score you did not earn fairly ). This off course includes using any cheat codes, restarting maps or playing maps you have seen others play, reloading previous saves after mistakes (not crashes, but even then you shouldn’t replay more than one turn exactly as you did before).
    • Follow the GOTM rules, especially the ‘what should we consider as exploits’ (see https://forums.civfanatics.com/forums/civ6-game-of-the-month.545/)
    • If you participate and anyone shows you accidentally or purposely violated the conditions or rules of the competition, your name will be crossed from the top 10.
    ***

    Participate in the contest

    To be eligible for a ‘top position’, post a reply to this thread where you:




    • Mention the number of turns it took you to win the intended victory.
    • Claim your position in the ‘top 10’.
      • End your post with the new ‘top 10’ with you in it (see below).
    • Add the first turn save game and the last turn save game (post victory).
    • Mention the game seeds.
    • For flavor: post screenshots of interesting parts of your game, or even make a video.
    • Describe (the more flavor the better) what your strategy was and how the game went.
    ***

    Current Top 10

    Copy and paste, and enter yourself into the top 10 list if your score is worthy!

    Guess I'm gonna make the start:

    T130 Poland Culture Victory:

    Pangea, everything else standard
    Game Seed: 573317020
    Map Seed: 573317021

    Initially, I wanted to try a faith buying Winged Hussar strategy, but then I found Kandy early on and decided to go for a reliquaries Culture Victory instead.
    I opened with 3 holy sites to get the discount on 2 campuses and government plaza
    .
    I picked the Religious Settlement pantheon and build holy sites first in all my cities. Then I followed with a couple of Theater squares and Commercial hubs (to get enough trade routes for all civs in trading range). I tried to make sure to have open borders with all civs at all times, but unfortunately I got declared twice by America in the early game and towards the end by Korea (who declared on my ally).

    I picked Reliquaries and Missionary Zeal as my beliefs and started spamming Apostles as soon as I finished my first temple. Though only one of them had the martyr promotion before I finished Mont St. Michel.

    As for wonders: I missed out on Apadana, but was able to build Oracle, Mahabodi Temple, Mont St. Michel and St. Basil’s Cathedral, the last 2 in my capital to get even more tourism from relics.

    I hit both classical and medieval monumentality golden ages, which allowed me to quickly expand and chop out holy sites in my new cities.

    One more thing, the culture victory screen shows, that I should have enough tourists to win the game, but somehow the victory screen only popped up 2 turns later. So I’m not sure if it should count as a T130 or T132 culture victory.

    I couldn't figure out how to put immages directly in the text so I just uploaded my victory screen with the save files. I didn’t have a T1 save, so I created a new game with the same game seed and attached that save file.

    Thanks @Civ Chemist for kicking of the competition! I'm very impressed with a 130 turns culture victory! Very good start I say and won't be easy for the next to beat I think.

    (In reply to "I couldn't figure out how to put images directly in the text...": after you upload a file to your post there's a little button next to it that let's you place it at the point where your 'marker' is in the text. You can choose for full picture or thumbnail I think._

    This means:

    Kandy victories with Kupe are likely going to end up filling this list at sub 100 times. Some one got one in a GOTM a few months ago.

    Never seen it, but that does sound like a solid strategy...
