The earliest finish date wins, with score as a tiebreaker.
Extended to March 31st.
Could have been sub 200 if I went freedom but alas my unhealthy obsession with order took over. Forgot to open liberty for a settler before going into tradition but will definitely keep it in mind for a later gauntlet, keep forgetting how low the policies cost on the lower difficulties.

Cannot open your save files from my phone, but Najran and Kufah look small compared to your other cities, so it looks like you built them late.

Getting your cities down ASAP on the lower levels is the key to faster wins. You are absolutely right about going Liberty to the free settler on lower levels.

My main takeaway from your map is that putting Baghdad on the coast would have let you run cargo ships between it and Kufah, which would have grown them faster. Would have given you access to the bananas as well.

Also, on Chieftain level, an AI capital so close like Washington is well worth conquering early. That early conquering army lets you shake down other AI civs for gold in peace deals as well!

Nice job getting a solid 6 city win!
