    What a fast player!:eek:

    My Deity Quick cultural games take 10 to 14 hours, even if I don't have to think the strategy too much and I don't have units to move.

    don't believe him!
    I played through the minor, and it took me a lot more than 4 hours!
    then again, I'm playing through the major and it's been more than 10 hours already, and I'm only halfway done.

    I really don't think #1 deity games can be called cheesy, even if it is with Huayna Capac. Don't know :crazyeye:

    :lol: I was referring to the in-game clock :mischief: I just checked and it was 3:18:11 for my second attempt. I don't know why, but it always counts WAY less than the RL time I spend in the game. I don't think it counts the time when you're going through city build orders (at the start of a turn) as "game time." Hence, my low number. I spent a lot of time counting tiles in this game so I think the actual time I spent on the game is closer to double the 3 hour number...

    edit: My first keshik attempt was closer to 6 hours :lol: Go figure.

    Hey just pick settler, tiny, quick. Rush 1 AI and park units on 2nd. Then hit next turn like no tomorrow :) Not a good score but it was about finishing it.

    The jokes on me :lol:

    Except for Gauntlets, I haven't yet submitted a game that wasn't going to be on a top ten someplace, mainly because I didn't think of it. Even my cheezy high difficulty duel conquest games made the top ten; One, my immortal, made 1st. Of course these are on lesser played speeds :)

    Playing games just to get a QM space filled doesn't seem right to me. But I'm going to change a bit....

    I'm tired of playing games setup for maximum speed/score. Tired of playing games with no barbarians. I need to play some totally random games, random map type, random leader and opponents on standard or larger maps, and just see what I can do. If I manage to win the game and it would fill a QM spot then I'll post them even though they won't make a top ten.

    Yes, it does, that's where 50% of my time comes from. The other 50% is spent on my excel spreadsheet :rolleyes:

    Deity diplo and space are pretty easy (relatively). Diplo with OCC and space with an OCC/PA make for very quick games that you will frequently win.
