New game style 6 players (of which 5 ai) 1 min turns, 60 min timer, balanced start.
Goal: get as many lands as possible within the hour..

first attempt: wales: 54 lands, 4886 gold, 44 turns
tip: dont take a centre spot but dont take palestine either.

Nice game, especially for those that like to play alone.. (socially challenged)

I want the entire map in 1 hour!

Even though it shouldn't be posted here, there is another very very hard, almost impossible challenge.

Buy advancement turn 3 (so your capital is advanced turn 4). Cheating if you get another person to make gold in a capital.
TIP: use 16 player maps.

Not as hard as first thought. However, you have to have a fast computer, due to extreme lag at the very end (lost 5-6 min of the game on the last 6 turns. Last turn alone took 2 min in lag)

So, if i could just have had 3 turns more, it would have succeded

Nice one.
I tried Lithuania but when i got to turn 25 it froze and had to leave the game. But was doing well with nearly 25 countries. But alot more difficult when playing corner.

I'll be damned. This is impossible on a slow computer. 15 lands left and 15 min. Had 2 armies big enough to take the 2 remaing caps.. But from there on, it was 1 min lag per turn, later 2.. and at the very end, 6 min whereafter it simply threw me off. Im done with this crap :)
