I found this much easier to do as the Japanese on the Lightning Round scenario. admitedly i was fortunate enough to be in a position where i could only get attacked from one direction and the computers never bothered looking for me. i didnt get attacked all game.

The japs gain an immediate bonus by gaining food from sea tiles which is where you get your research aswell. keep restarting until you get 3 cities surrounded by as much water as possible. customise your workforce between water and production tiles. build libraries as quickly as you can then if you are under attack build defensive units, if not use your largest city to spam settlers then settle them as near to the sea as possible.

i think i got this more through luck than skill however i got it on my 2nd or 3rd attempt as the japanese as opposed to 10 or more trials with the aztecs. the game i did get it in lasted less than 20 minutes. if you notice you are constantly getting beat by the same faction try using them (thats why i used the japs).

hopes this helps (first attempt at a guide)

Update: Der Tiroler has made a good point. save your game as soon as you get a ship. then search for Atlantis as this is worth 3 technologies. if going one way yields nothing simply reload your save and search the other way

Yushir0 also pointed out that to 'win' the lightning round scenario you have to reach the modern era (requiring 24 techs). other than democracy which will give a science boost, ALWAYS RESEARCH THE TECH WITH THE SHORTEST TURN TIME.

if you are having any issues at all, chuck a comment below and i'll private message you back, i check TA most days so should get back to you within 48 hours.
