This is an 8 player custom victory condition scenario with a Stone Age start and default resources. The actual victory condition is ridiculous - you are required to acheive conquest plus gather all 8 ruins, artifacts and discoveries while exploring 90% of the map. I think conquest alone would suffice. Actually, it would probably play best with standard victory conditions with wonders turned off. The map is arranged like a pie sliced into 8 equal slices. The pieces are divided by water with no shallows connecting and the gold is near the center of the map. The starting positions are not quite balanced with some players receiving more food than others. The map has many straight lines and is quite plain looking overall. Decent job but needs much more spice.
