Been a long day for me...was up dead early...not much sleep, the joys of my new love life
My computer was a nightmare, finally solved the problem after 1 1/2 hours - the CD was crashing the game, grr.
Not a particularly good start to the game, I started to dominate when our economies were developed. All was going well, till Ldeska sent in a suicidal attack and I dealt with it rather badly and lost one of my most productive cities. I had enough by this point and surrendered.

Ufff impossible is nothing I don't know how but I've won We played both as Zulu (of course) and after only 1,5 hour of technical problems with DD computer (it showed up to be CD drive ) we managed to launch game. In the very beginning I trapped DD's initial warrior (he met my two brave warriors ), but then we had again technical problem (DD's computer hanged again). So I started another game with Rico, as Kublai Khan (cre+agg). When DD returned I switched to our game again and.... I placed my second city not next to copper only two tiles away (I thought that I play as Kublai Khan ) that was an error that caused my problems. Instead of harassing DD with impis I was harassed by DD I barely defended myself (went for Meditation and chopped obelisk in that city - to be sure to have some culture there even if DD will reach Meditation first. I've connected copper and started to build axes. After some time I was safe. But DD was expanding in that time...
I lost marble and Oracle, took Stonehenge. I've build much more cities, at least I've covered way bigger terrain. Because of better science DD took Literature and build GL. During this time I've rushed Great Person by scientists - received Great Prophet and used it for Golden Age to buil catas. I've simply made a final attack to win or loose as I started to lag in points and demography... but it worked
DD haven't researched Construction and that was his mistake. My army was big enough to lower strength of defending axes (11 axes and 1 archer in city with walls and 40% of defence) and kill all the defenders. I had 6 catas and 14 axes plus impi. This one impi was very important - it was that impi which burned DD's city
I'm really happy as this is first time I think when I've won with DD Thanks for game, it was really impressing and as usually I've learnt few tricks which I will surely use.
Thanks for playing with us - please join us in next KAC Cup!
