I was sure that 300 turns was going to be kinda rediculous. As England, I was just getting used to my colony when the spanish declared independance. I like to just take my time and build, but so far my colonies are in the stone age when I guess I'm supposed to be winning. I have no infrastructure, no advanced buildings, no navy, no schoolhouse, around 10% rebel sentiment, 15% taxes, 200 guns, 100 horses and 70 turns til game end. I thought I was having fun too, but I guess I really have to rethink my strategy. It's over before it starts. There's never even been a war in this new world! I was annoyed by a privateer once, but he left. Aside from the fact that I'm getting my butt kicked without even realizing it, I really feel the turn limit is unpleasant and artificial. I haven't seen anything yet and the game is over. I would have preferred a natural progression of the game rather than a ticking time bomb.
