After a silent period the quick games are back! In this comeback game you assume leadership of the Timurids on their glorious quest. The Game The year is 1000 BC. King Timur has just completed the quick start challenge and is not satisfied. The economy needs some dramatic improvement and his declared goal is to be the primary trader among all the civs in the world. To accomplish this, however, he needs a substantial income... The Objective The objective of the game is to achieve a gold surplus of +100 gold/turn as soon as possible (measured at 0% science spending). Taxmen and "wealth" do not count, but gold per turn trades with other civs do. All cities must be in a content state, which means that they cannot be about to riot. The winner is the one who achieves this goal at the earliest date. Rules: The rules are the standard rules we use in the COTM competition.
