    LOL! Yes, we were so humble then!

    Edit: Why is it that every time I post a reply that depends on the post in front of it I end up at the beginning of a new page????

    No, I am not deleting posts so that it happens everytime Kev. Really, I'm not. No, I'm not. No way. It's just you. :)

    While I'm playing these turns, maybe some of you would like to give some input on the Demogame? ;)

    I'm entering a bit of business travel. I'll be in Salt Lake City from the 18th until the 22nd and then I'll be in Orlando from the 25th until November 1st. If there is anything left after Dukie mushes the enemy, someone else will likely have to step in and get the end game.

    The good news is that I'll only have one more trip the first week of December, so I'll be pretty clear if something else should start.....

    I'll speak for Jayne for a moment and say that if the duke leaves us anything, that we'll do our best to have more BARBARIANS arrive and challenge us! :D :rotfl:

    There will no Civs left when I am done.

    Anyone care to guess how many turns it took?

    If you were aiming for a quick finish, two turns (one turn might be possible but I haven't looked carefully enough to be sure).

    Hmmm..... I have to think that there must be ONE city that was out there somewhere that caused an extra turn. I'll agree with TheViking and say 2.

    I'm going to say four -- it probably took some time to get to the far reaches of the underdeveloped lands.

    I'll split the difference and say 3. There are a few cities that could be tough to reach in time for a 2 turn victory.

    The Mongols were our weak spot. We had very few troops over there to take out the cities.

    Are we counting the remainder of Andu's turn as turn 0 or as turn 1?

    My 2 turn guess meant you would have conquered the world on the turn after Andu's last turn (otherwise you would have conquered the world in 0 turns if you finished everything at the end of Andu's turn ;) )

    That's what I wanted, was a 0 turn victory. ;)

    But, there was no way that that would happen.

    My "three" was completing Andu's turn, and 2 more.

    The Mongols are down to 15 units. I'm searching for units that can finish the job. I know I have them around here somewhere.

    I've been ignoring the partisans that have appeared along the way.

    All done.
    I'll post full write ups tomorrow.

    It sure helps when you occupy cities using a Partisan unit so you don't have to worry about the other civ talking to you and stopping the progress. :)
