This is a 4 player, conquest or 3 artifacts victory condition scenario with a Stone Age start and no resources. The map is very creative and would be a lot of fun if not for all the bugs that plague this scenario. Each player starts on a medium sized island with 5 islands surrounding, some connected by shallows, some not. Plenty of resourses exist and there is a large central island that whoever controls, should win the game. That's where the good news ends, though. Players 3 and 4 are set to computer only. Players start with 0 resources and players 2,3 and 4 have no villagers either. Can't go far with that! Also, I think standard victory conditions should be turned on with wonders disabled. This would force the winner to hold all 5 artifacts on the map for 2000 years instead of the existing victory condition of only capturing 3 artifacts. The instructions say 4, but the actual vic condition is 3. If these problems are fixed, this is quite a good scenario but it is unplayable as is.
