    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: Warlord
    • Map Size: Standard
    • Map Type: Great Plains Plus
    • Speed: Standard
    • Leader: Germany (Bismark)
    • Opponents: Any
    • Version: SV8
    • Date: 3rd March to 1st April 2018
    The earliest finish date wins, with score as a tiebreaker.

    Completed this one....1900 victory......had a lot of cities.....must have been about 15. One of my best of my few diplo victories....feeling I finally have Warlord mastered, at least. Took out one civ and had a very large section of the map under my grasp....and took the first religion choice for border growth...never did that before...wow....nice. Also nice that I think this wasn't the first time that I screwed up and had to go all the extra turns until the diplo victory vote came around again!:) Got it on the first time.

    Usually get 10-20++% better over 3-4 plays... but this one, only a couple of turns. 229/1595AD (first try was 236 if I remember right). Great plains plus just doesnt seem to have a good (at least for me) growth area. Sun God helps a little, but not enough.

    It was very "diplomatic" - kill all but 2 for Atomic era vote.

    Bulbed frantically (scientists and writers) to get it done in 1 vote, just made it.

    Mods: crash at 123; all saves available.

    Looks like the number is right, but wrong thread?
