    Since nobody else wanted to finish this game, I've gone ahead and completed it.

    First things first, trade with Peter:



    Then, we get to business:



    I let him capture one of Wang's cities, then tear him apart with siege. He falls right after that:



    And kindly gives us this:


    We get some garbage events too:




    Peter builds the UN, basically locking us out of diplo:


    Oh well, time to get to work again:


    Again, I let Willem grab one of Peter's cities then kill his sod using our siege. I then just march through his land grabbing his cities. Had to give this one back to Peter though:



    Also picked up the CR, although I didn't use it:


    Meanwhile, I abuse our new vassals:






    Eventually make my way to Amsterdam:


    I grabbed two more cities after that, but Willem wouldn't capitulate since he was afraid of our enemies (Monty had broken free). Ok, I'll take a cease fire first:


    Then this:


    It puts us just shy of domination but before I can capture any of Monty's cities, we trigger domination from border popping:


    We had fur in our cities on the last turn - I totally forgot to trade them off after picking them up in a city that Willem gave to us :blush: But otherwise, I think we did pretty well sticking to our variant :D

    Some stats:




    Our fantastic K/D





    And finally, our score:


    Thanks all to a fun game! Too bad interest died off towards the end but I guess that'll happen with SGOTM kicking up instead :lol:

    Nice to see this finally completed :) I guess this turnset shows how dominating our position really was already. Was a fun game - also shows the power of wonders again when otherwise working under strict restrictions. Had we had HC with a BFC Stone on the main landmass this could have been a different story :lol:

    Nicely done, shyuhe. :goodjob: I guess if I wait long enough, the game just plays itself. :D

    Fun game (at least for a while). This was a seemingly really tough variant, but we really broke it with the wonders.
