When I played on the Internet Zone a constantly was losing because of various rushes. I was tired of seeing my Empire destroyed by clubmen and villagers. If you like to research and upgrade--then this is your scenario. This allows for interesting Iron age battles. If you get tired of trees remember what a job catapults can do on them. HAVE FUN!!!!!!!!
This is a 4 player conquest victory condition scenario with a Stone Age start and default resources. This author obviously doesn't like to be rushed because there are huge forests and mines seperating all of the players. It makes for a very slow developing game which is probably boring to most people. The odd thing is that this map really is a rush since each player will attempt to build heavy cats as quickly as possible so they can be the first to take down the forest and wipe out their enemy. I guess if you hate Bronze rushes and prefer Iron rushes instead and feel like building up for a half hour before making contact with another player, than this one is for you!
