    Fast indeed!

    Good Call Duke -- especially with the new folks. Small map may induce some to compete with mercurios & a high score. Also looks like a potential OCC option.

    Hmmmm.

    Just some advice, mangor: dont post your finish dates on the discussion threads until after the GOTM closing date. Now everyone knows what date they want to beat. You may not have noticed, but there is a Spoiler Thread for every GOTM, which is where you really should be putting that kind of thing. No one is supposed to check the Spoiler Thread until they have played to AD1.

    You must have a lot of free time, playing the whole thing in less than one day. Smash or Lafayette may join you in a couple of days, but the rest of us will be far behind. I just downloaded the game; have not even decided whether to go Early Landing, Early Conquest, or One City Challenge. I have seen a few players make Early Conquest well before AD1, so beware. The GOTM Score biases in favor of early finishes, but I hope you did not wipe out any cities with wonders.

    Peace to you too.

    Hello! I have a question about finish game. This is general question, but have good opportunity, because I just played GOTM34. As I know there's two ways: spaceship or conquer. Question is: spaceship must be send into a space or must land on planet?

    You would send me your save just before your spaceship is going to land. So, if it palnned to land in AD 1902, send me your save from AD 1901 (after you have moved all your units and are ready to press 'enter' to end the turn).

    List Updated.

    It seems quite a few people liked the smaller map/lower difficulty game. :goodjob:

    And, also a thanks to the many of you who format the name of your saves the correct way. :king: :goodjob:

    They've been done for over a week now, but I'm waiting on replies from people for confirmations of various items.
