35 turns but the game basically ended on turn 28 when I take the Throne and last city I didn't control. chivei had a strong start - though he seems to believe the opposite - and could have killed my Leader and army on turn 12. (@chiveicrook: not sure you saw that?) At that point, his army was basically the same strength as mine, and shortly after, it grew stronger thanks to Exalted Martyrs. I was quite concerned around turn 16 when Exalted Martyrs got researched. But then on turn 17, I was able to buy the Giant Dwelling because chivei took a Quest from them instead of buying them, and in my opinion, he did a mistake not to go on the offensive against me, with his Exalted. Instead, he apparently retreated toward his throne and split his armies, leading to big losses on one army and no clearing on the other (it seems). I cleared a lot, got a lot of independent cities, and when I arrived at his lands, I was much stronger. Nice to play against you chiveicrook! Good luck for the rest of your games and see you in next tournament! I'll post videos after I upload them. There were very strange things with the map though, and I don't think this is possible with the normal settings for the tournament, so I'm not sure what happened? I reported that to the judges early on but at the time, the screenshots sent by chiveicrook seemed to indicate everything was alright. 1/ there was a HUGE area of Dirt Cavern Wall which I basically mined for 10-20 turns without interruption, it was something like 14 * 12 hexes. And at the end of the game, I think I spotted another one. We NEVER have such big Dirt areas with our settings. 2/ there was at least 1 independent city on the surface (normal) + 1 Goblin, 1 Orc, 1 Tigran, 1 Draconian and 1 Dwarf independent cities UG, so in total 6 independent cities, which I have never seen on a tournament size map. The normal number is 1 of player A's race, 1 of player B's race and sometimes a 3rd one, so 3 in total.
