    Thanks to Peaster for suggesting this. He will be playing, so watch out all early conquest players.

    Upon further reflection I would like to add a special rule: the first hut must yield a military unit or gold. Reload as many times as needed to get one of those outcomes. Nomad is not considered a military unit and thus not allowed

    Yes, I am playing for early conquest, but I don't have a great record on small maps like this one. Anything can happen.

    Actually, I just finished, and will start a spoiler now.

    Deadline extended a week due to recent forum problems.

    Congrats to all but particularly to Major for a first place finish way ahead of the rest and Peaster for the fastest finish way ahead of the rest. We should all be in awe of the results of GOTM 12 (same game) as well. Smash would have still taken the first spot way ahead of the rest of us, and NOL would have still taken the green star way ahead of us. Amazingly, 3 players would have finished faster than our own master EC player Peaster. On the other hand Major, grigor and I would be right behind smash in ranks 2 to 4 and ahead of GOTM 12's silver medalist and our long time moderator Duke of Marlbrough.
