    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 NOTE: Five opponents are specified below, the others may be of your own choosing.

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


    Settings:
    • Expansion: Brave New World
    • Victory Condition: Culture (though all victory conditions must be enabled)
    • Difficulty: Chieftain
    • Map Size: Duel
    • Map Type: Pangaea
    • Speed: Quick
    • Leader: Any
    • Opponents: Any
    • Version: SV8
    • Date: 22nd February to 26th March 2021
    The earliest finish date wins, with score as a tiebreaker.

    I submitted 1898....had a pretty large Civ and was right up close to Askia. No warring. Maybe could've been faster, but would need to learn how.

    Tried a couple times as Pocatello - use ruins for quick culture for fast Liberty -> GM; GM bomb other side, but quick makes this very hard (due to GM scaling). Does any leader
    always open religion? If so, and you find them quick enough to declare ware before they have a monument it might work. Also tried wet/hot and pantheon=culture from jungle to
    make this quicker, but in a few tries just has not worked. Or maybe against Shaka/? if they open honor and you get the barbs first.

    Maybe Spain for quick $ for quick settlers & SS, esp for those civs that get faith w/ their monument.

    (Or Rome to build monuments/shrines/temples faster? Chop away for settlers)

    Suspect < 100 turns

    Sea level=low for SS; probably sea level=high for quick GM bomb (though that might have
    fewer ruins).

    Turn 56 / 760BC - Spain + Mt Kil gives 2*(3f, 2c) to get quickly though policies for sacred sites,
    especially with also getting the other NW.

    The quick $ helped, but was not nearly as important.

    Think it might be possible < 50.
