I played this game about two years ago. It was one of the best games I ever had. We ended up losing, but it was neck and neck to the very end and even in the final minutes we still had a chance. Our enemies won by working as a team and combining their civs strengths. The Viking player flooded champs and halbs while the Persian built masses of heavy scorpions that flattened our troops. My two allies fought them while I killed the Teuton player (he had like 10 villagers near the end, and no buildings) and was beating up the Persian player's base. Eventually my allies resigned and it was 1vs2. A really fun and crazy game.
