    Alright chaps, here it is:

    Turn 0:
    MM all cities, squeeze as many artists as possible.
    Increase culture rate to 80%

    Turn 1:
    zzzzzz

    Turn 2:
    As cities finish units, build wealth
    GP born in Hamsterdam, grrrrrrr, he and the GS start a golden age
    Spoiler :


    Turn 3:
    culture rate to 90%

    Turn 4:
    zzzzzz

    Turn 5:
    I realise that the 13 turns for Sankore to finish Hospital, is probably the biggest bottleneck to victory. MM to build it in 6.

    Turn 6-7:
    zzzzzz

    Turn 8:
    Matrix pops an Artist, at only 52%

    Turn 9:
    culture to 100%
    Through the AP, all members are now in a massive defensive pact. I wonder if Ragnar is going to do something really dumb?
    Spoiler :




    Turn 10:
    zzzzzz

    Situation:
    Spoiler :


    2 Artists sleeping in Matrix, 1 sleeping in Idiotsburgh.
    We are only about 10 turns from victory, so I think Matrix should finish this game in his turn.

    16 cities, 17 forests, last Hospitals finished in 3 turns.

    And Idiotsburgh is in second... nice.

    Great win all, I suppose this means that IO4 is now officially over. With IO5 already begun, and about half the team here also playing in Matrix1, though, we'll still be plenty busy.

    Excellent Monarch culture win!!

    I want to thank my team, for pulling through when I could not, the lurkers, with their insightful and humorous comments to help us keep going, and of course myself, for coming up with the damned idea in the first place. I'm proud, and I'm sure my teammates are proud, to accept this prize for completing the oh-so-possible task of winning a succession game!

    Yeah, I'm out of ideas. Anyone else want to take the stand?

    I think we did well, especially with a starting position I would generously describe as 'really crap'.

    Matrix here's the code for youtube [ youtube]value[ /youtube] {remove the spaces from inside the brackets} with value being the IGe3TAgbB5U part of the url. There's a similar one for gametrailers which just swaps the site names. Amazing what you can learn from the BB code page linked at the bottom.

    Also many thanks for the pre-win save, now I can get a new high score.
