    So you have all had the problem with unfinished games. You play for thousands of years, slowly clawing your way to world domination. Then you finally feel the game is definitely won, all you have to do fill 10 transports with a balanced variety of units to attack that other continent to establish a beachhead. Then survive the counter attack, attack the surrounding cities, then wait for those cities to come out of revolt to give you that last 4.27% of the world that you need. Well the game is won anyway, maybe you should start a new game with Montezuma, you've always wondered about that Aggressive-Spiritual combo, you'll finish this one later. But do you ever finish that game?

    This service is for you. You send me your already won game and I'll finish it. Then I'll send back the last turn so you can see the wonderful victory film, then review the history of the game and see it take its rightful place in your hall of fame. All for a reasonable fee.

    This service is available only for Civ4 version 1.61 at the present, with no mods. Warlords will come later, so you can start saving those games to send later. All prices are in US dollars.

    Pricing:

    The main charge is 5 cents per city per turn. Obviously this means that it is cheaper for smaller maps, and cheaper to go for conquest instead of domination.

    There are various surcharges for things that are painful to deal with.

    If you are on friendly or pleased terms with Louis XIV then 50 cents every time I have to deal with him when he initiates it. I just can't stand to look at the guy. If I don't have to be nice to him then there is no charge.

    If you are on friendly or pleased terms with Peter then 50 cents every time I have to deal with him when he initiates it. I don't like his whiney tone. If I don't have to be nice to him then there is no charge.

    1 dollar for every Great Prophet thats gets generated after they can no longer light bulb anything. You do get one free since saving one for a golden age is not painful to do.

    10 cents for every aircraft that isn't flying CAP. This is a one time charge. 10 cents for every aircraft on a carrier. This is a per turn charge.

    50 cents for each Ironclad.

    10 cents for each unit lost attacking technically superior units, for example grenadiers versus infantrymen.

    There are some things that can save you money.

    50 cents off for each nuke, if at least one enemy doesn't have SDI.

    25 cents off for each city I capture belonging to Montezuma, Alexander, Huayna Capac, Genghis Khan. Another 25 cents if I raze the city.

    50 cents off each time Elizabeth initiates a dialog, if she is cautious or better. :blush:

    10 cents off for each technically inferior unit killed.

    I'm almost tempted to try this. My games always have lots of nukes so you might actually have to pay me money. :lol:

    What are the criteria for a game to count as "already won"? Top score? Do you pay us if you loose?

    Lol. You are aware that we can set our saves up so that you actually have to pay us money for finishing them?
