    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: King
    • Map Size: Standard
    • Map Type: Large Islands
    • Speed: Standard
    • Leader: Portugal (Maria I)
    • Opponents: Any
    • Version: SV8
    • Date: 3rd February to 1st March 2018
    The earliest finish date wins, with score as a tiebreaker.

    I think AIs spawning on your starting island is really rare on this map script? Even if you manage to roll such a map, you'd have to kill that AI before they get 100 culture AND kill everyone else faster than a good Sacred Sites finish time. Might be doable, but too improbable to bother trying in my opinion. I submitted a Sacred Sites game.

    Damn, thats fast. It even rivals your polynesia record on king...
    I have been going for Desert pantheon i must admit.
    Surely you had some luck also ? sailing in a hut, and after optics, 1-2 prophets in huts ?

    Well, my starting island was very good, it had 6 or 7 Gems tiles if I remember correctly. In my experience the biggest luck factor in this kind of game is what the AIs decide to do though. In my game I had only one AI go Tradition and it was Genghis, so the top total culture to beat wasn't that high. Gifting Mongolia a city and sending a trade route was enough to time things well. Overcoming the second best culture actually took a couple of turns longer in the end.
