    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: Culture (though all victory conditions must be enabled)
    • Difficulty: Prince
    • Map Size: Large
    • Map Type: Inland Sea
    • Speed: Standard
    • Leader: Egypt (Ramesses II)
    • Opponents: Any
    • Version: SV8
    • Date: Tuesday 4th December 2018 to Friday 4th January 2019
    The earliest finish date wins, with score as a tiebreaker.

    Notes to self:

    Things to figure out:
    1 How to unsticky prior gauntlet threads.
    2 How to sticky new gauntlet threads.
    3 How to include that gloved-fist image - complete with text-wrapping - when starting a new thread.
    4 Get some answers from Australia about the wrinkles I encountered.

    Things to point out:
    1 Gauntlet ends on a Friday, not over the weekend
    2 Please post ideas for new games in Gauntlet Suggestions thread
    3 Based on suggestions in Gauntlet Suggestions thread, was gonna set up an OCC game. OCC ain't a map-type.
    4 If answers arrive from Australia soon, there might be a Major Gauntlet. Otherwise, there might not be a Major Gauntlet 'til next go-round.

    Thanks for this, helped me think through it again, and I'm pretty sure I have the solution. I knew OCC isn't a type of map, but (the way the gauntlet scoring is automated) it's the only place I could imagine it would show up in the scoring table. But any "requirements" DO show in the submission's table, so I can simply cross-check the two tables.

    Thanks for that, @vadalaz. It has SV8 where I actually entered data, so there must be another field I need to edit. I'll check it out.

    I have gotten two games in, one Sacred Sites victory and one Greek Liberation Victory. The Sacred Sites win was five turns faster, and a heck of a lot less intense without all the unit movement. Hotel/Wonder tourism will just not compete on this setting.

    This is very enjoyable for those liking Domination or Religion-based games - mainly due to war chariots... simply amazing, with no need for horses! For the Sacred Sites game, Burial Tombs are sooo good, so this gauntlet is definitely a fun one to play.

    Good luck to all those giving this one a try!
