Response to First report!


You can't get much more "down to the wire" then that! Congratulations on what sounds like an exciting game.

I'm glad you weren't put into a situation where you had to recapture your capitol. The recapture of cities came up in the intro thread, but I didn't specify on the main Epic's page. Anyway, you would have been free to recapture Lagartero instead of razing it, because you can capture cities if they were originally founded with one of your merged workers. You just couldn't recapture a city if it flipped to you and then you lost it. I probably should have put that up on the page, sorry.

So, I suppose that means you won the game with one city to spare! I wonder- if you would have had two reserved slaves instead of one, would you have been more likely to have fought the Chinese at some point? I know I felt like declaring war on them just from reading your report. But, if you had fought the Chinese, that might have slowed you down enough that the Romans would have launched first!

  Tourney Mission Statement:
Existing Civ III tournaments, contests and group events are universally plagued by elements or shortcomings that lead often to compartmentalized results. Spoilers and privileged info is readily made available while games are still in progress. The game itself remains in flux through a patching process. The scoring system measures only a few elements of the gameplay. We at Realms Beyond are not satisfied to settle for these conditions and compromises.

The Realms Beyond is home to gamers who go beyond the norm, who creatively add depth to good games to make them better, who choose to set our own added limits to gameplay for the purpose of increasing challenge, varying gameplay flavor, and getting more out of the games we love. We discard the usual standards and venture into realms beyond, where we share our passion for gaming with one another, and with those who are like-minded.

We develop and refine our tournament as we go, with the help of the players. Each game is subject to rules, but we keep the framework light, the emphasis on excellence, the focus on the spirit of the game. Come and play. Share, compare, teach, and learn.
