Congratulations! That was really big commitment. I suppose 482 hours does not include time spent inventing all the dirty tricks you used. Still its about as much time as I have spent on all of my CIV games altogether. Usually I spend just 20-30 hours on a game when I feel more serious about it. Hope you don't vanish like Seraiel. You don't have to make an incredible achievement in every game to enjoy it.
