    hey, I would want to ask you what was your fastest research that you achieved. Yesterday I got automobile at year 1360 on deity difficulty, but it was using goody huts to get many technologies (reloading game on every hut to get technology i wanted), I know it is not allowed on games of month and this week I will try to play with accepting first outcome. But now its AD 1750 and I only started spaceflight research, while I saw completion of spaceships this year. Seems like you all play much better that you can get spaceships this year without reloading games on huts. What was fastest time that you got for example engineers, railroads, automobile? can be also turn number :)

    Yes, Samson's 16 AD is by far the greatest Civ2-story I have ever read about! But as Prof. Garfield said, this is not typical, this is not only the result of excellent gameplay. This was excellent gameplay combined with everything the human player cannot influence going the right way. I think this could be compared to golf: What are the chances for a pro to score two hole-in-ones in a row?

    My personal highlight was to launch a full-size-spaceship in 820 (landing 831), during GOTM 168:

    And this was not typical either, I was never again even close to these numbers. The main key back then was early hut luck, which had allowed to build two size-1-settlers, combined with the opportunity of heavy trade with the English on a different continent with the reach of a trireme-ship-chain, including a city with insatiable demand for hides.
