Mammoths in the 13 colonies? That’s why I read it. Not the case. What an idiot I am.

I remember playing a Civilization scenario back in the day where the scene was North America with natives. There was a mechanic where you could domesticate mammoths but couldn’t build them after a certain year, because of extinction. The mammoth riders were the most OP units of the game for their age, so I’d spam them in the early game and steamroll over all other civilizations.

That’s right. Adam and Eve rode dinosaurs to Sunday school.

Early **North Americans** might be slightly less confusing at first glance. The overlap was ~12,800 years ago.

There “were humans responsible” is always a bunfight. This does keep the possibility open.
