So, some of you may know of the normal Hodop's Challenge.
This version is where you choose or make 5 of your community levels and tell me which you have chosen. I will have 5 lives per level, and I will post my play-through on my youtube channel.
Oh, and only one entry per person.

Hi Hodop,

I challenge you to choose any level I made.

I believe you mentioned a preference for "short games", not sure if that means games that don't get you stuck in a stalemate or games that don't get too high a turn count. None of my levels have become a stalemate from my own personal playtesting, but some have had players exceed 60 turns to clear (I personally define anything requiring past 60 turns a long game).

These levels are recommended based on clear rate, although I leave it to your personal preference. Some of the levels I designed, I ended up being surprised how hard they were based on the actual clear rate.

Dog Eat Dog: https://www.warzone.com/SinglePlayer/Level?ID=1210465
Average Turn Count: 28 turns
Longest Turn Count: 104 turns

Surrounded: https://www.warzone.com/SinglePlayer/Level?ID=1247510
Average Turn Count: 26 turns
Longest Turn Count: 47 turns

Space Race 2025: https://www.warzone.com/SinglePlayer/Level?ID=1246450
Average Turn Count: 38 turns
Longest Turn Count: 96 turns

It started with Global Warming: https://www.warzone.com/SinglePlayer/Level?ID=1196952
Average Turn Count: 47 turns
Longest Turn Count: 74 turns

Avatar, the world needs you: https://www.warzone.com/SinglePlayer/Level?ID=1205418
Average Turn Count: 64 turns
Longest Turn Count: 83 turns
Despite being a long game turn count wise, I think you will find the scenario an interesting "learning" experience from your original request

Clash of Titans: https://www.warzone.com/SinglePlayer/Level?ID=1191166
Average Turn Count: 55 turns
Longest Turn Count: 92 turns
This level is the hardest of the bunch recommended. This challenge was originally inspired from the Ceasar's challenge, so if you were able to beat that challenge, while this will be harder, it is beatable

Once again, the decision is yours to decide, and if you want hints on whatever level(s) you do choose, happy to discuss/brainstorm strategy and approach (or review your gameplay video to point out what you could have done differently)

I can vouch from experience Joi179 is an excellent puzzle challenge designer. His levels are a real head scratcher, though there is a solution.

I came close on one, and debated playing 10,000 turns in order to finish it, even though that wasn't the intended method to beat it

I've made a few fun custom levels in my time if I do so say so myself. Some difficult, some not so much. I liked to make my levels unique and put some flavour into the scenario or description or have some sort of theme.

I don't doubt you'll probably get 5/5 but I would like to see how quickly you do them or how many lives you use.

Haha, no no, it's Dwarfs for sure, sorry. That term has existed for thousands of years before Dwarves. From the condition dwarfism in real life or from dwarfs from folklore. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs even existed before Dwarves.

Dwarves has been populized because of Lord Of The Rings but make no mistake "Dwarves" has no usage outside that francise and it's a common mispelling, unless you're specifically talking about that race of Dwarfs from LOTD it's Dwarfs in all other situations.

Sorry for the sudden English lesson!
Also since you have 5 lives per game, I think you should at least get 3/5. I believe in you, they're not too hard. :D

It’s like tomatœ (pronunciations for left and right) tomatō, but Dwarfs Dwarves, I agree with Dwarves and you can’t change my mind, so here’s your lesson, Rome.

The level wasn't difficult, just annoying. But judging by the fact that after 15 min from releasing you already have 6 attempts on level called "A level for masochists from a sadist", I am starting to believe that you actually would enjoy if I replaced the level list with the top 5 worst levels I could find.

But I've given up on that one. Also, how did you get the Bosses to spawn armies into the enemy AI?

If you give "Boss 4" to a slot in custom scenario which then isn't included in the game, it joins the game controlled by neutral. As neutral, the boss can't move, but it will still do special moves. Boss 4 special moves are:
-pick random player's territory without special units, reduce amount of troops on it to 0, give the territory to player controlling the boss, spawn troops on the territory.
-pick random enemy territory player borders and add troops there.

By the way, if you control boss 4, it will still add troops to enemy and wipe-out all your troops on a territory before deploying (your) troops in it. Armies deployed by boss can be moved the same turn as they are deployed (which becomes relevant in no-split mode).

So in that level I should keep a territory that borders it and it'll give me armies?

Nope. The boss will only give troops to your enemies/ turn your territories into his colour (neutral).
While you don't have to kill bosses in order to win, after turn 23 bosses will spawn insane amount of troops. I suggest using gift card to make the AI kill both bosses. And get lucky turn 4.
