This is one of those games where a transliteration for next generations can only be made by watching the game. So many things happened that I’d have to write a novel for the numerous battles. But, I’ll try to catch the highlights. The game started as a traditional grushfest after which the winning team started to land their adversaries. Only their Mayan pocket was saved from castle and knight pushing while in the meantime ChicoBento was trying to save his ass (and his 30 pop after 45 minutes of playing). He had to pull back eventually and his empty patch of land was now used as a base where trashunits, BBT, champions, cataphracts and gunpowder units started to round up for a good game of pushing. Surprisingly they could keep up 2v3 with a very solid Mayan army backed up by Chinese scorpions. The attackers saw the game going to a stalemate and with the prospect of red soon being able to make units too, they started to build a wonder at home. This led to multiple attemps to land and destroy, but they were all revoked before they could do any harm. The countdown started and with only a few years on the clock to go, the game seemed to have finished. But no one, not even me as an attentive watcher then saw the sneak of Corvo, who sneaked a big bunch of trebuchets within range of the wonder and smashed it down in the final countdown. As both islands were nearly cleared from forests, the naval war was only won by the person who could still afford a galley. This happened to be Corvo’s team, who then took the water and made a wonder of their own.
I still wah-wah-wah-wah-wonder how they won this. (for the cultural reference, look up “Del Shannon – Runaway” on YouTube).
