    This was quite a popular game, the most submissions for a Vanilla GOTM in 2 years.
    Queen Elizabeth II evidently was a little bit belligerent, based on the number of military victories.



    Cactus Pete & Jovan Kucic returned to the sparring for gold, with Cactus Pete winning the gold emphatically on this occasion, to go with the fastest Domination.
    srad was only just behind Jovan Kucic to get bronze.

    Considering the isolation, there were a number of impressive military victory dates. evil spock with a 800ad conquest stands out.

    The isolation no doubt helped the Cultural victories, Conquistador 63 picking up the fastest.

    sossos almost cracked 1000ad with their Diplomatic effort.

    Space was the closest fight, with WelshGandalf pipping ngraner42 by a single turn.

    shulec moo'ed yet again

    Congratulations to everyone.

    That's a cool map of where everyone started. That is a nice variety of starts. I like the picture in post 1, too, especially that there's a soldier in a ghillie suit in it.

    I'm happy with a Lowest Scoring Award and the Slowest Victory!

    Maybe the 4th place finish with the cow "award" should be called "The Shulec". I seem to be racking them up!

    Woohoo! I did spend quite a lot of time near the end of my game trying to get the spaceship done a turn or two faster - seems like it was worth it :)

    Better luck next time ngraner42.

    evil_spock, 800AD is really fast! With what kind of units did you run the conquest?

    Fun game. Everyone won, so congratulations to all participants.

    Mainly knights with barracks/vassalage experience. A few catapults built in enemy lands helped with Washington's cities with longbows.
