    Darn, after 9 years, I was finally going to complete VVV, but in my Polynesia game I neglected to add the initial save when I uploaded it. Oh well, next time.

    Svinopes was even busier last session! Mine just stand out this time as no one else happened to put in some gold medal tries.

    Look forward to seeing you complete the VVV! It is an awesome achievement.

    Did the same thing last month - submitted, like, 40 games FOR THE WIN!, except I missed one map. That map was in THIS update, so I'm finally there. (Although some of 'em are pretty low scores...)

    Hopefully, you have all the saves, so you just have to resubmit, not replay it.

    @zenmaster:clap:
    :clap::clap:
    on some great gold medals there; hope you at least broke out a sweat for some ie that king shuffle with babs
    really enjoyed that pachacuti highlands game on prince, would make a good gauntlet challenge *suggestion! - those settings or similar
    looks like t143 was your months gaming timings for quick

    congrats @aafritz17 :clap: on completing the VVV (32 hof civfanatics and counting) and all the good work you put in to keep these gauntlets up and running

    Thanks-- oh I sweated that King Quick Shuffle game all right. King is my least favorite difficulty level, and Shuffle is my least favorite map. (I get Tundra Islands like 50% of the time at least...)

    I envy your skill and seeming comfort with quick games. The timing is so tough if you are used to Standard and slower, and it is tougher to leverage military strength.
    Those King shuffle games from an old gauntlet are always testers. I generally am pretty lousy at quick speed compared to the other game speeds, but it is easier to get some early mojo going in those lower difficulty levels.

    Pacachuti highlands games are always fun. Sexten has played a bunch of them and I joined in on a few in the past.

    Yes, I also look forward to seeing multiple VVV completers next month! Great job, aafritz, on everything!

    June Gauntlets are visible in the HOF. Just don't submit any for them until after the imminent update.
