Good stuff Brant.  Looking forward to seeing how this one plays out.

Cool.  I've heard Civ V nuts talk about the SfA campaign often enough, so it's fun to see this in action! 


Two questions, btw: 

1.)  It seems like you started out in a rather cramped position.  Is that typical for Civ V? 

2.)  Are the Boers considered one of the European factions then?

Looks good, Brant! One point of wordsmithing needed:

Great stuff, looking forward to more.  Makes me realize how much I've neglected CivV the last several months.

Good work, Brant. This makes me realize how much stuff I'm missing out on with Civ V's scenarios. I did play and finish the Civil War one, but none of the others yet.

Conquest of the New World is a lot of fun, too - especially if you're a European power.
But I'd played that one a bunch and wanted to do something a little different, so I thought I'd try the Scramble scenario, which I'd never played before.
