This game with its somewhat unusual start saw some remarkably early victories – and some good results for GOTM staff! A welcome return to babybluepants, who used to play regularly and also ran some games. After an absence of some years babybluepants has come back in style with domination win in 475AD. In sheer speed fellow staffer, neilmeister came next with the fastest religious win in 820AD. Sadly, neither win provide a big enough score to secure a medal, but the next fastest did: Jovan Kukic’s 940 AD fastest conquest, winning the silver medal. The gold, and the cow, was taken by hhhawk with a 1575 AD domination that scored over 250K points, while bronze went to Pangaea, for a most impressive 1610AD (fastest) space win. It’s not at all often that we see a space win that early! Unusually, all three medals happened to be fastest victories. Zhary pulled up the only other fastest victory – a diplo win in 1270 AD.
