    Got the save.
    I'm ridiculously busy with work at the moment, but I should be able to play through the turns this afternoon at least, though I'll probably have to take a few days to organise pictures & get everything posted.
    We're behind schedule, and I'm working ~16 hour days at the moment.
    Someone else is welcome to finish up the game if they so desire, otherwise I'll post my update by Saturday night.

    It appears to be my turn again! I will hopefully be able to play it and post my update late tonight.

    I didn't start until tonight, and I haven't finished yet, but it looks like I should be able to finish tomorrow and easily hit Domination before 25 turns are up.

    Playing through turns now, headed into work shortly, planning on writing up the post after I get home.

    In 1880, Funky became General Secretary of the Ottoman Communist Party on the strength of his promise to see the world crushed under his heel within twenty-five years. Could he succeed?
    Taking stock of the situation, Secretary Funky observed that the nation was currently at war with the Babylonians, and a large Ottoman force was sitting on the outskirts of Babylon, just waiting to seize it.

    In no time at all, Babylon was conquered and given a more fitting name.

    civ4screenshot0022.jpg

    The city of Nippur was crushed soon after; it was becoming apparent that Hammurabi's troops were hopelessly out of date.

    civ4screenshot0023.jpg

    Nippur was the last city to be renamed; after that, Secretary Funky was in too great a hurry to bother.

    civ4screenshot0024c.jpg

    City after city fell in rapid succession, and soon the end was in sight.

    civ4screenshot0031.jpg

    On the very eve of Ottoman victory, Mansa Musa decided to create a colony.

    civ4screenshot0032g.jpg

    As his troops bore down on the last remaining Babylonian city, Secretary Funky wished the new Khmer leader well with the little time remaining.

    civ4screenshot0033.jpg

    Hammurabi managed to hang onto the last Babylonian city with a single catapult defending, and a border popped somewhere before Hammy could be crushed for good. In 1903, with two years remaining before the deadline, the world was dominated!

    Final score:

    Victory! And a nice score to boot.

    Reading that update I should have said that there were 7 transports full of troops next to moscow, however :P

    Well, I throughly enjoyed this, guys, and would love to do it again, though I propose on Monarch difficulty next time.

    With Monarch, it's really, really hard to get an early lead. Player civilizations almost always have to play catch up the whole game before they can really start dominating, and I feel that would make things even more interesting.

    I thought about invading Russia, but since I started with 55% area and I was pretty sure Hammurabi would get me to 60%, I decided not to start any additional wars. I think I used those guys elsewhere, maybe against barbarian island cities or something. :P

    Yeah I can't wait for the next thread. We need stricter term limits though :P 2-3 days or pass, imo.

    Good idea and thanks for overseeing everything EnlightenedBum!

    P.S. Team 1 needs a victory post... assuming its coming next...

    I came to the same conclusion last time. Or the time before that.

    What about next time?

    It's much easier to just do my own thing. If I had significant modding skills/the patience to do things by hand I've been contemplating a Paradox Mega-LP from Crusader Kings through Victoria...

    But the two conversions are scary.
