8 Minute Game is actually a misnomer: a game can last as long as 20 minutes, players typically going a mix of towers, archers, scouts and men at arms. Galleys are disabled.
This version was based on the original 7 Minute Game and aims to balance it out as well as improve the map, providing a richer game.
Things people do: Wall their spot, transport, tower over, save up for archers, make trade cogs. etc!
Recommended Settings: Castle Age, standard resources recommended, but also very fun in Feudal and Imperial.
Galleys are disabled, but fireships, fish traps, and demolition ships are enabled.
No kill Counter or Raze counter for this game, just a simple Build and Destroy
I endorse this as the successor to 7 Minute Game, instead of 15 Minute Game
