    While the general Hall of Fame is an ongoing competition, we are running a series of ten games called the Hall of Fame Challenge Series - "Rise of the English". Standard Hall of Fame rules (*) still apply, but your best submission meeting the settings of one of the games will be counted towards the Challenge.

    (*) Please read the >> HOF rules << BEFORE playing!
    (*) Games must be played using the >> BUFFY MOD 3.19.005 <<
    (*) Games to be submitted via the >> Civ IV Hall of Fame Website <<
    (*) New players, please >> register << using your CFC forum name

    Settings:

    • Victory Condition: Space Colony (though all victory conditions must be enabled)
    • Difficulty: Immortal
    • Starting Era: Ancient
    • Map Size: Tiny
    • Speed: Normal
    • Map Type: Terra
    • Civ: England
    • Opponents: Must include Netherlands (Willem Van Oranje), Spain (Isabella)
    • Version: 3.19.005
    • Date: 25th June 2018 to 24th January 2019

    The earliest finish date wins, with score as a tiebreaker.

    Cool! Seems the G-Minor requires Elizabeth, whereas the Challenge allows any English leader. Any chance of opening up the Gauntlet so a Victoria game would count for both?

    The link on the HoF page saying "See G-Minor 233 for details." isn't working. I also don't see this game mentioned as a minor on the HoF discussion forum. Any chance to correct this?

    What's the go to tactic here?
    Going optics and send over an explorer/scout to pop astro in the new world or is this map too small?
    Or is bulbing your way to astro the way to go?

    I've seen 6-7 huts on the other continent usually (low seas), so Astro is pretty likely. Maybe better to bulb towards lib/communism, or corps, rather than Astro.
