An inglorious T289 victory for me.
I agree Yerevan will be the key to winning this one.
T259 - no Yerevan.
A little detail for the interested:
Mine was a mainly peaceful game as I put faith ahead of all else. I was lucky to start near a lot of stone so took the Stone Circles pantheon.
Early starting was to go for mining and build a builder then a monument while researching astrology then build/chop a holy site. Did a few rounds of holy site prayers to secure religion. Policies were the +5 barbs and +1 production.
From there it was expansion. Culture driving to 50% settlers then get them going. I settled six expos and got their holy sites up asap - usually a builder first to chop or quarry.
I only built one Campus and one Theatre Square. Otherwise I had a few commercial districts. For me it was key to get to Theocracy ASAP so culture was more beneficial than tech.
Tech-wise, cartography was the priority and after that it really didn't matter.
Religion (Buddhism) was:
- Stone Circles
For religious conquest, I started with Brazil - my non-religious neighbour - and then took the word to a reluctant Egypt. Non-religious America was next. America and Brazil became friends and allies for most of the rest of the game.
From there it was swimming apostles and missionaries to find the others. Non-religious Germany didn't become friendly but wasn't a hater either. Aztecs were the biggest challenge. They had inquisitors aplenty but with pilgrimage as a belief I was at around 240 FPT so my main problem was the swim time.
Sumeria and Egypt declared a few times but we peaced out with almost no actual fighting.
I lost a few turns in the Aztec conflict through trying with too few apostles so had to build another swarm.
I lost a few turns at the end as Sumeria unconverted so the apostles had to swim back and concert one more city.
While Yerevan wasn't in the game, they would have been useful to enable picking promotions.
t289 for me too,
Didn't expand.quit warring too soon. Didn't give a hoot about city states. Just apostles and such. Brute force- I didn't even get Theocracy until last 30 turns. Generated a lot more faith than neded if played decently- but first time for religion vc at this level, so meh... maybe I try again. ..
I had an awesome game going, and was like "woohoo" I'm gonna kill this thing! But then I came to understand it was pangea, oooops. Funny how one little thing can alter the whole outlook. Great that it is so, that is what keeps me coming back for more Civ. But now to re-spawn with correct setting. Grrr..
Peaceful game, terrible start position, found Yerevan late in the game.
Well just a few days left in this one if anyone is still attempting a submission.
This game expired on 11 Feb. Is there a new challenge?
I just picked up Civ6 this weekend and I am running it though the paces at the moment. Eager to try some HOF submissions with the new game. Probably won't be very competitive yet.
Yeah, without these, no incentive!
OK gauntlet closed.

Congrats to the victors! Being only 6t out from third makes me happy. Looong way to gold though. gg whacker!
Woo Hoo! My first medal! Still a way to go to catch Whacker. Thanks for the challenge - looking forward to the next one.
