The Ridge
Welcome to the February City Building Heaven Competition, a Poseidon Atlantean adventure called The Ridge. This game can only be played with Poseidon. It was designed by Granite Q, the beta testers were Hanarky and mouse.

"To the north of the great river lies a tall tree-covered ridge; no-one knows what lies beyond. Many have tried to scale the ridge, but no-one has yet succeeded. If a way across it can be found, surely a great city could be built there, able to house as many people as possible".

The links to download the start positions (for Titan or Mortal difficulty level) can be found on the The Ridge Game Page. Please note that these downloads are zipped saved games, not .exe files. You will need to locate the game in an existing family file (or start a new one).

I would just like to emphasise a few points from the game page here:

1: Please note that the standard Zeus Heaven Competition Rules & Features Page applies to this competition.

2: Your saved game entry should be in December AD6.

3: The Competition closes at 12 midnight ET(US), 22nd February 2004.

4: There are a total of four sanctuaries to choose from, but you may only build a maximum of two in your city at any one time. The competition completion criteria only requires a minimum of one completed sanctuary to be in your saved game entry.

5: Please note that the Episode Goals page shows a requirement for a pyramid; this is simply to prevent premature completion of the game, and should be ignored.

I hope you enjoy the game
Have fun !!

Hi Great Cornholio, nice to see you back for another little test

And hi to you, SnakeEyes too! Poseiden is very similar to Zeus so if you've been playing that, you should be reasonably ok

Now a real techno-geek would simply use WinZip on each house to squeeze in a few more inhabitants. However, an old farm boy would get this big hammer and.......

Hi,
I submitted my entry for this contest. After the 32 years Stringbags' Double Crown Cleopatra real torture at CBC, I was very exhausted. But I competed in C3 and Cleopatra lately and I simply could not resist a Poseidon contest. Playing Zeus or Poseidon is always relaxing me. There was not enough time for my best achievement this time, but I tried. Just to see if I can still be OK in Poseidon. I know I can do better, but I assure you I have very competitive entry.

Iko.

Just to let you know, it's almost two hours after your post saying you had sent your entry in, but I haven't received it.

Of course you may still be trying to get a better entry

I'll see about trying to play this today. I've been meaning to all month! Too much RL happening at the moment, I'll be missing from the end of March onwards so will be missing a lot of the CBC championship too

Well complete with lots of dips and catastrophic sections of housing running out of goods (really poor distribution), I've submitted. OK but not that competative, will say more once the deadline is over.

Thanks a lot Granite,

Taelia.
