    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.

    (*) Please read the >> HOF rules << BEFORE playing!

    Settings:
    • Expansion: Brave New World
    • Victory Condition: Diplomacy (though all victory conditions must be enabled)
    • Difficulty: King
    • Map Size: Standard
    • Map Type: Small Continents
    • Speed: Marathon
    • Leader: Any
    • Opponents: Any
    • Version: SV8
    • Date: 2nd May to 17th June 2017
    The earliest finish date wins, with score as a tiebreaker.

    Wow, King (the most challenging/annoying level in some ways to me), Standard size, Small Continents (perhaps one of the most variable maps), Marathon (you must be committed :)), and an "any leader" affair. Definitely a worthy gauntlet for a 6 week Major!

    Think I'll go with Siam here, they're a solid civ for DiploV and a Marathon game should be good for my League of Nations score with them.

    Agree on King - no one has lux's to trade... and Marathon, where if you miss the UN timing you can see "84 turns to next vote".

    Nope.

    A solid choice.

    I am thinking of trying Sweden, going permawar to get Great Generals and spamming Great Prophets if possible to save cash on bribing CSes, just to see how it works out.
