    Some important note....the game last 500 turns...and rembember the part where I mentioned that the Romans are world leader. I don't say more.
    I will add a picture of the starting location when I have more time.

    When submitting a game it's maybe also wise to send me a copy of it. I'm not sure Duke will get them right now.

    Spoiler :
    You might have said that you can't get techs from conquest; I lost several diplomats and over 800g (not to mention did the wrong strategy for many turns) before I found out.


    I'm not sure if the above information was kept quiet on purpose, but it was a nasty and expensive surprise.

    Spoiler :
    Yes it was and it's just only a part of the surprise. I wasn't sure to give that information so didn't mentioned it.


    Above the answer to the question of Prof. Garfield.

    Lol "this scenario ends in 5 turns" and I'm nowhere near the end. I can't comprehend how is it possible to make it in 275 turns o_O

    I'm at about turn 200, and I can see myself winning in the next 75 turns (not positive). If you want a hint at my strategy, look below.

    Spoiler :

    Can you say "suitcase nuke?"

    Also, several equations that served me well:

    1 AI capital + 1 military unit + 1 suitcase nuke blast = 1 civil war

    Communist government + espionage = lots of vet spies

    lots of vet spies + several transports + tribute payment to rome + 1 military unit + several turns = 1 AI capital + 1 military unit + 1 suitcase nuke blast

    Of course, I've already suffered global warming and my score tends to hover around 0.


    EDIT: We may want to look into starting a spoiler thread. This seems like the kind of GOTM that admits of mid-game discussion.

    Just make a spoiler thread. Everybody is allowed to make one. Perhaps a moderator can move the three posts above mine (and this one also) into that thread.

    Forkshy mentioned to me that the starting date is different and that the savegames which have to be submitted are not known. If possible please post save games around turn 100 and turn 250. I have to look which dates belong to those turns and will let know it soon.

    Good work MG.

    I wonder if there's anyway of getting the results of gotm 90-92. I wonder if a Mod or other admin has them stored anywhere?

    No, they are all with Duke. Nobody else can get to them as far as I know. I will try the top admin if he knows a way to contact Duke.
