    Well as Imhotep says space may well be the way but Diplomatic is quicker and with Pholkhero having kicked off building the UN and with strong relations all round it seems distinctly possible and we can continue with Space as a fall back plan if necessary....


    Well first milestone completes on turn 320 1900AD



    We get a suitably themed event to keep interest up



    I decide to go past 10 turns to see the election



    Which we win with comfort and amazingly enough a few turns later we get


    Here is your Just Press Enter winning save.

    Great fun, Great game, (Thanks oh mighty builder) and a great team

    :goodjob:

    Woaaaaahhh! Game, set, and match! :cool:

    As my first succession game, I can't say I wasn't satisfied! Really, my eyes opened. I've never paid such caution to the minor things like in those 10 turns. Really entertaining game, and with a great, master Tolkien based theme. It was a pity that the spirit of the game lost a bit after the discovery of Gunpowder.

    I was amazed by how many hours we spent on this single game. I opened some saves for comparisons, and before we went away from BC's, we spent about 15 hours... I sincerely don't know what kind of tactical masterplans were you planning. My longest game took me 5 hours, and BC's I cross with about 30 minutes on the timer. Wow.

    Well, since I was the "black sheep", I can only ask how did I fare. :)

    Anyone of you in for DMI VIII (starting this week most likely) ? It will be another Tolkien based game, and of course with a map genuinely handcrafted™ by the Legendary Builder... :D

    Kudos to the team, I have really enjoyed playing with you. Good effort from Winth too, for the first SG this was very well done. Now if you just could learn to crop your screenies...

    Great game everyone. The best named city goes to Pholkhero for Golem's Cave, and the fact that it's spelled Gollum just adds to the satire.

    It was interesting, no metal/oil showed me how important those were. It would have been fun to romp everyone with Ethanol fueled tanks but diplomacy was the way to go, our diplomatic game was near perfect.

    Two words:

    1: Again, just to learn, how did these 20 hours of play came off? You tend to micromanage everything, or you just plan or think that long?
    2: My replay is crummed. First, on the place of Victoria, there is Mansa Musa's flag, and in the mids of 2500 BC, the screen freezes and due to 2050 AD no events, no nothing, is displayed on the right. Is it because that mod you have and I don't? :(
    3: My hovercraft is full of eels. Can you fix it?
    4: Can you fix anything I want?
    5: Who can lend me some money?
