First off, lemme give a shouts out to all my fellow civ players. I'm new to the forums and what not. My 360 gamertag is the same as my username here: Intifada1988.

Ok so straight to business. I haven't tried this yet (we may have discussed it here already, if so, whoops), but I thought of a good little trick thing thing you might be able to pull off in MP.

Have you ever started a game in MP to find yourself against lets say, three english? (ok, haha, maybe a bit of an exaggeration)

What if you for example researched horseback-riding, and then built the Great Library and recieved monarchy from the three players using english? Then you could go straight for feudalism if you wanted and no one would be expecting that from lets say....Gandhi...

Anyways, point is, you could use the techs you have + the great library if you're playing with two of the same civs to leap forward and grab a tech way out of the time period.

I haven't tried it myself yet. Discuss!

Great idea. I havenīt tried it out yet, but it sounds like a great idea. The problem is... You usually donīt know you are up against two civ of the same kind already early in the game (i.e. when you get horseback riding) so that would mean that you always have to go for Great Library to potentially get this bonus. Iīm not sure it is worth it.

But as I said above. Great idea. Glad to see you at the forums. We always need more of the positive posting in here!
