I have to admit I was quite impressed by the results of this game - not least because I knew I'd started you all off on some pretty difficult terrain. Even if the peninsula start perhaps made it a bit easier to defend against the raging barbs. Even so, there was a pre-1800 space win (well done @bcool who also got the gold medal - quite an achievement when the scoring system incorporates some bias against peaceful victories). Back to tradition, the silver and bronze both went to conquest victories, with @Powerfaker getting the fastest one in 1530AD). Perhaps a special mention should go to @Frederiksberg - the only person to try the challenger save. Since challenger meant playing against deity raging barbs, that's definitely a huge challenge. Sadly, Frederiksberg was unable to complete the game, but he did survive to 1650AD before retiring. Summary of Medal Winners: bcool: 1782 AD Spaceship Victory, 168,071 points.
