    Lots of folks made good use of all the trees, resulting in some very high scores. Eight players finished with scores >200,000!!!

    The really big news is that we now have TWO new Eptathalons

    Congrats to shakabrade for fastest religious victory to complete the Eptathalon!
    Congrats to Powerfaker for fastest cultural victory to complete the Eptathalon!

    These names will now live on to the end of time in the Civ4 BtS Pantheon!!!

    Fredricksberg submitted the highest scoring Challenger submission, and Xcalibrator had the fastest Challenger victory. The special one-time Lumberjack Award goes to both these intrepid players.

    Here's where everyone settled.

    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.

    Proud to win the coveted lumberjack plaque :lol:

    Congrats to the two eptathletes and the winners. I was going for space but tripped domination. Not important since my date would have been 17xx and nowhere near the impressive dates by @lymond and @nocho .

    Big thanks to @kcd_swede for an entertaining map with some nice tweaks!

    Wow, some really good win dates, regardless of difficulty. Sub 1600AD Spaceship with no help from the AI research and sub 1000AD domination on low difficulty when AIs still do not take all the land is particularly impressive. 1275AD Culture is also respectable. I thought more people would opt for immediate Ivory improvement for some warrior rush, but settling on Ivory was very strong in the long term as well.
    One thing I could not see in my playthrough and others have mentioned in final spoilers is some super rich island accessible by Astro. Does anyone have a screenie, by any chance? :) Thanks @kcd_swede for your fine touch on the maps. I would dare to say that with you, one should play the leader, map and mapmaker.

    The shame is that I still don't focus on a specific victory condition early enough. During my last wars, I thought about razing all the cities I took and going for conquest, but I decided I had already kept too many cities by that time, including a couple barb cities in the southwest that I captured very late in the game. I was afraid I'd inadvertently go over the domination limit (with no vassals to gift cities to), so I might as well stick to the domination path.

    And so, a very middle of the pack finish for me. :sad:

    Thanks for the game!

    Many thanks, such a cool capital on T150 :D. One can make 3 decent, 2 great and one fantastic city with those resis. I wonder what would happen if you got a start like that, just a small patch of land with all the resources and someone like Joao who could cross the ocean with carracks. It could still be competitive.

    @MarleysGh0st
    In GOTM, I usually have a preference for some VC from T0 and then reinforce the decision or (rarely) pivot by T100 when I have some scouting. Truth to be told, Conquest, Domination and Space Race can all go either direction until the decision about building or skipping the Oxford.

    Wow, I'm honestly surprised to get gold and fastest domination in such a contested game.
    As I mentioned in the spoiler thread, it was sort of an aborted space race game for me. :crazyeye:

    Congrats to the other winners and the eptathletes, and thanks @kcd_swede for the fun map and settings!

    I wonder if I have more ambulances than everyone else combined.

    I think (counting only BOTM) you have around 90 total (green and red) ambulances. Certainly well more than the next closest... but if we award one or two ambulances in almost every BOTM... I'd guess that everybody combined (including Donsig) is probably around 300 ambulances. So if you really apply yourself to the task, maybe you'll get there in 2024?

    As one of our most consistent submitters, I surmise you are enjoying the games which is the main objective... so... congratulations! :think:

    I'm closing in on 100 then and almost averaging one every other BOTM. I do enjoy the BOTMs, at least up to the point where the AI beats me. :lol:
