Final Countdown

Overview

When two equally skilled player meet in the ring, there is a slight possibility to come to a halt. If the victory settings are standard, it can still turn out to be an amazing game by breathtaking wonder races.

War Story

The game started with a crime: Hammet stole one of DreaIVIS’s boar. In spite of this handicap, the latter managed to rule the river between them soon. His power seemed unquestionable, but Hammet was able to turn the score of the game with a shore castle and a fleet of fire ships. However, his attempt to cross and gain a foothold on the enemy territory remained unsuccessful.
Then Hammet unexpectedly decided to build a wonder to gain a walkover victory. DreaIVIS have to react very swiftly, and surprisingly he was the first to finish the Mayan Masks Temple. The difference between the two countdowns was only 4 years! What to say, this is only a twinkle in real time. Yet the furor was far from over! The lively game went on with supersneaky trebuchets, a lost wonder and amazing turns, making this match very exciting and enjoyable.

DreaIVIS found himself in a very similar situation in this game to the former one, but against Daut. Even the map is comparable.

War Story

This Highland-like Mega Random map offered two Town Centers each player, with a large amount of wild animals and sheeps around. Therefore we don’t have to wait long for the action: Daut sent a landing party across the river, and built up a few stables. The Mayan Monks handled the situation more or less, but DreaIVIS had to fight for a while against raiding Knights, then Paladins.
When he finally cleaned out his neighbourhood from enemy units, both players concentrated on the flow: the game was balanced, neither of them was able to take the upper hand. Castles, Trebuchets have came and gone, when Daut started to build a wonder to preclude the agony of a long, stalling game. DreaIVIS had to accept the invitation, he managed to make a successful debarkation. Although the Halberdiers and Trebuchets made their work well, they could not push in the land of Frankish Paladins. However – maybe aided by the grey colour too – DreaIVIS sneaked a few trebuchets in the heart of the enemy territory and took down the unguarded Wonder. How funny, he fell this very trick right in the previous record above.
The tabula rasa emerged a new wonder race that demonstrated, how trepidation can determine the finale.

    Very good games indeed.
    For the second game, I’m baffled as to why Daut kept on building Fire Ships and not Demo Ships (at least when he still had the resources…) It would have been much more cost effective and efficient at ripping apart the fleet of Mayan Galleons in the messy heat of battle, and would have made a brief but adequate opening to drop his units on the other side.
