I liked the asymmetric victory point conditions in the this scenario. It makes it harder to keep track of who's in first for what reason.

I've won this scenario as England by building a rail line from Cape Town to Cairo. Lots of fighting to get the land for that....  ;)

Congratulations, Brant!  Nicely done.  O0 

However, I have to wonder why everyone declared war on you on the second-to-last turn like that.  Presumably, it was to keep you from winning, but it was literally "too little, too late".  ???

thanks y'all - it was fun.  Not sure when I'll get another Civ V AAR in.  To do a good one right, I need a full weekend to play a ton of the game and take a lot of screenies all at once.  Maybe I'll do a Smokey Skies one next.
