    I had a hunch this month's game would be on a small map, and that's just what I've been training on... Except I was expecting king-level instead of prince. Mwaaahahahaha!!!

    Great!

    This time I'm pretty sure I can find time too. Only everyone knows by now that doesn't concern them, since I always end up low.

    And I really like the map this time.

    YES!

    Finally I can play the GOTM (I planned to do it last month, but then it was on Deity, and I know that's WAY too difficult for me as I've only played on Prince before). It's not the settings I support, but it's okay. I suspect many people are going to win by conquest this time...

    I played a few hours last night ('til 4 AM). I am in AD 1050 and have just switched to Fundy! The Sioux are history and Romans only have one or two cities left!

    My empire has hordes of Veteran Knights...

    Wish me luck!

    BTW why does it have to be the germans?

    I'm happy that we are the Germans! I have finished too, it wasn't really hard to conquest the world. I never play for conquest, but since you get more points for it, I thought: let's try. I only forgot to save at the right moments so the saves I sent are a bit of the dates. I hope Matrix will accept them, I don't feel like playing it again on short notice.

    BTW, Matrix, how are the results of GOTM4 doing?

    Matrix'll be in his girlfriend's house for the next few days. He said he would send me the results later this week (around Friday), after he return.
