Duckweed conquered his continent way before I did. I waited until I got Cavalry and secured the land only somewhere around 1100AD - 1200AD. I'm sure he as a better player can crush my finish date if he chooses to. Anyway, it was a nice map to play and experiment on. Many maps are suffocating in a way or another that they force the player to go a certain route in order to have a chance at winning. This setup made it possible to exploit all routes at once.
