    I did nit manage to finish this one, but seems such a fun and unusual game, I am trying to finish it. I was doing good around 1AD, 13 cities and close to finishing out Toku, now several hundreds years later, still have not found out how to get to Native America, building forts on Ragnar Islands now, maybe that will work. I was afraid Ragnar would settle whole island, I went there a bit late, settled two random cities and then remembered colony expenses, arghhh :(

    Super-neat trick by Wasting Time with teleporting to SB, I declared on Toku early so now prolly he would never open borders with me, even if I would give him my whole empire .... He is actually down to 1 city now and wants to capitulate, maybe it is worth trying .... forgot about open borders and vassals, will try in game.

    You can do the trick without OB too. Just move your stack to the teleport location while at war. Then Cease Fire to teleport.

    I did some experimenting with teleportation in the map "Zaras corner". From my findings, it seems to be extremly difficult to teleport away from your cities. I only managed to jump over a 1-tile lake by setting up a totally unrealistic worldbuilder scenario.
    Abit curious how you managed to pull it of in this map! Did you gift several cities to toku (possibly with monuments or other culture-cities?) to increase the jumpdistance toward your citites, making the algorithm favour the jump over to siting bull?

    I did build a monument in the gift city so I didn't have to wait for borders to pop.
    And yes, I had to give a 2nd city (close to the gift) to get the teleport to work. But I wanted to gift that 2nd city anyway to clear the whip anger :D
