While the general Hall of Fame is an ongoing competition, we like to run time-definite competitions between updates that we call Gauntlets. Standard Hall of Fame rules still apply, but any games meeting the settings will be counted towards the Gauntlet.

Settings:
  • Victory Condition: Conquest (though all victory conditions must be enabled)
  • Difficulty: Deity
  • Starting Era: Ancient
  • Map Size: Small
  • Speed: Normal
  • Map Type: Pangaea
  • Required: None
  • Civ: Egypt
  • Opponents: Must include America (Lincoln), France (De Gaulle), Germany (Frederick), India (Gandhi)
  • Version: 3.19.005
  • Date: 1st November 2021 to 25th January 2022
Must not play as Inca.
The earliest finish date wins, with score as a tiebreaker.

The title states Darius, but the Civ states Egypt. I would assume Egypt is correct, but can you please clarify and correct? Thanks.

Supposed to say Normal speed not Any.

This looks Inca-locked to me. The marathon slot is 15 years old T61 with vanilla Q abuse. If we're serious about t57, shouldn't huts and events be on? AH is a very expensive road block, I want a chance at popping it or mining from a hut. Otherwise early worker steals are going to idle. And at least the war chariots event could potentially help us.

Well, I decide to play Deity for the 1st time (for real, I had a cheesy tiny hatty upload a decade ago), and this happens on the victory turn:



Looks like I don't know how to embed an image here (will look into it, please help). I tried to put a dropbox link, but failed. looks like right klick - open image in a new tab works for me. Does it also work for anyone else?

Anyway, I tripped domination on the turn of Gandhi capitulation. Bah, I got 1080AD victory (on Deity, go figure).

Too rusty I guess

It is easier to just attach the pictures here on the site, instead of using third party image hosts.
Spoiler :
Upload files:

Include the picture in the post by using the "Full Image" link.

Unless the images are really small, like the above ones, it's a good idea to save them as .jpg files (instead of .png). It's a socalled lossy format, which means some image quality is lost, but typically it's virtually undetectable. But instead of file sizes of ~4MB, they are 200kB or something (for 1920x1080 fullscreens).

are deadlines for g-majors hard-and-fast, or if there is no new g-major posted can we submit late to the current one?

save checker is still broken
Sorry about that, will have a look, however it's not really required now as Buffy automatically checks your game and flags up any issues - check the second tab on the victories screen.

You can submit late but please PM if you do, this year I expect to run updates on time (basically last Tuesday of the month).
