    A watery map and very small landmasses can make for a difficult game, with low production, low-science cities. So I wasn't too surprised that no-one got an ultra-fast finish. What did surprise me was a complete spread of victory conditions, with every victory represented.

    The fastest finish of all went to @shulec, for a 1290 AD religious win. @Powerfaker came next with a diplomatic win in 1320 AD - I think that's quite an achievement considering how far up the tech tree you have to go for a diplo win. That victory also won Powerfaker the silver medal. @Termitnik took gold with a 1650 AD conquest (highest scoring, but not quite the fastest - @Jovan Kukic managed just a couple of turns quicker, 1630 AD), while bronze went to @nocho's 1505 AD domination.

    Well done everyone!

    Summary of Medal Winners:

    Termitnik: 1650 AD Conquest Victory, 242,310 points.

    Powerfaker: 1320 AD Diplomatic Victory, 141,773 points.

    nocho: 1505 AD Domination Victory, 140,944 points.

    Here's where everyone settled. Looks like practically everyone went for the Plains Hill. @zbgayumn was the one exception, staying on the grassland, which I would think should mean a slightly slower start in exchange for what ought to be extra long term production from an additional hill (I say, ought to be because obviously the horsies that you don't know about at the start blow that one out ;) )



    The Small Print:
    The numbers by each player's name indicate the turn settled on (starting turn is 0). Players are colour coded by game class (challenger=red, adventurer=blue). Symbols indicate victory condition, if there's no symbol then the player either retired or was defeated. The yellow border indicates the land that was visible at the start of the game.

    Yay! I got the Cultural Award!

    It really helps when nobody else goes for that victory condition. :D
