    Always nice to start the re-entry into the competition with a gauntlet win :)

    I was sweating until the very end, though. Somehow this reminded me of that G&K Aztec culture gauntlet where victory was already in sight, when HideInLight swept in and took it with an extraordinarily good game. - But not this time! :king:

    I came close, Salomo! I started playing this challenge only a couple of days ago, sadly, and wasted time trying to beat the standard Sacred Sites finish before I realized I could beat it easily via conquest. Unfortunately, it took me a few tries to learn how to balance tourism and conquest, so I didn't medal in time. But, one more day and I would have had a t11x finish for sure. Next time... ;)

    I didnt submitted,but if i did i would be 6 on major and 9 on minor.I guess that is good for first time challenge :)
    When it comes to Spain,it just crazy how big factor plays terrain - perfect would be all cities on sea with mountains,capitol with proper wonder(it seems to me uluru is best wonder due fast religion start),and also good food/construction terrain,and not just that,you need to have close other civs with many cities so you can get as much is possible gold with religion spreading.

    Oh right, It was culture by conquest for the minor? Blatant exploit imo, shouldn;t be allowed! I take a moral victory for doing it properly with Scared Sites ;)
