I didn't like this scenario very much. You are pitted against a single computer player. The above description is correct except for one thing, the computer starts boxed into the corners just like you are boxed into the center. So, to win, you just need to bust out of the forest with a bunch of archers and wipe him out of the corners. I was in the Bronze Age with ten archers and he was still playing around in the Tool Age with some clubmen. Way too easy of a scenario.

This scenario starts you in a very small area surrounded by woods, preventing you from going outside. You don't really want to though, because their are many of the enemy's units out there. So, hang inside for a while, use the enormous resources you have in your little hideout and get to iron age at you leisure. It was very easy once I did that, and I even cut through the forest on the side of the enemy's base!This was a lot of fun to play, but it could have used maybe another enemy civilization or something. One cool thing that happened when I was playing was that a priest came up to the forest's edge and converted a catapult that I had. It killed most of my villagers in two shots, before I could get to it with an archer. Overall, its a good scenario that just needs to be a bit more challenging.
