GOTM -132 Spoiler

I have finished this game (a couple of days ago).

With only 3 civilizations, I knew there was a good chance that we would not have a key civ. Once the game was started I could see that the other 2 civs were the Egyptians (Yellow) and Persians (Cyan). So with only three civs, the key civs work out as follows:

Supreme - Purple (no key civ)
Mighty - Orange (no key civ)
Strong - Cyan (Persians).

So the weakest of the civs would actually have a key civ. In my game, it seemed that the Persians were the weakest civ for most of the game and so they were their own key civ.

This, of course, means research is going to be slow. It probably also means that trade is going to be have to be a very important aspect of the game.

Do you mean "started" or actually "finished"?

I started a few days ago. I just built Marco last night and exchanged maps with both Persians and Egyptians. I will post a log soon.

I will most likely play a landing game. With restarts on, 9000 tiles, and 45 land masses (Island 45 is near our homeland) hunting for restarts will take forever. Besides I enjoy landing games more. Persians and Eygptians are decent rivals to have for a landing game as well.

The surprising thing so far have been lack of a good spot for a SSC despite presenece of plenty of fertile land. I have just decided to settle for a city close to my capital with only 2 specails: fish and grass covered Silk.

Technically I mean almost finished. I am at the last turn before landing. I just need to spend a few minutes (or hours) checking my citizens to make as many as possible happy.

I was able to start the game on the same day it was posted (March 6).

This game is terrible!
It's past 300 AD and I am still in Monarchy, domestic offshore vans payed off 40 and 36 gold so far and evereything seems to be going sooooooo slowly this time. Not sure if I will (or even want to) finish, I really, really wish I had gone for OCC, there would have been a nice 3-special-on-forest-for-size-1-site...
However, seeing your stats at 1 AD, I'm not so much behind anyway. I'll post some log soon.

I am planing on switching to Republic in +220 so do not despair. However, as you can see haleewud changed before +1. But he had to sacrifice in expansion to do that. At +1 he has 16 cities to Inkerman's 21 and my 24.(It is so odd for me to be in the position of having the most number of cities. Where is Peaster?) Looking forward to see your log soon.

That is what happens without a key civ.

That is where I built Moscow. And I am sooooo glad I did not do OCC. None of the 3 speicals were particularly good for OCC: grass-covered pheasant/buffalo, Silk, and Fish. OCC would have taken even longer in terms of game turns. The rivals are unlikely to be much help with techs and even in OCC it was unlikely that one could stay at least powerful which is the only rating with a key civ. With perfectionist Persians and nonexpansionist Egyptians staying at #3 would have not been very likely in OCC. Furthermore, these guys are so far away that trade would have come pretty late in the game and in OCC you do not have your own cities to trade with. Surely 36 and 40 are petty trade revenues, but you are in Monarchy and your cities are small. I have deliberately stayed away from trade for that reason directing my energy toward expansion and wonders instead. I am planning on delivering 3-4 domestic vans right after becoming a Republic.

I have never been anticipating Republic so much. Many of my cities are up to 2 black heads. At some point I was running 40% lux in Monarchy just to be able to keep things running.

Inkerman, I think you have a slight error in your first log. At -1000 you state that you have 8 cities. But then at -950 (the next line), Yakutsk is founded as the 10th city. Did you do your summary at the beginning of the turn and then found Sverdlovsk (the 9th city name) after that?

Hi haleewud,
You are right I think that must be what happened. I often make the statistical notes right at the start of a turn so that I don't forget. So if the stats were at the end of the 1000BC turn it would be 9 cities.

Time to move on (to #133)...

Here is my log:

initial thoughts & blackclicking:
-moderately sized island
-some islands nearby within trireme's reach -> no LH needed (probably)
-OCC possible
-bronze as starting tech => direct path to monarchy available
-option: use forest for size1-settler, build road with other settler to city-site to get 3 early cities

-4000 move settlers > special under grass
-3950 Egypt is in
-3900 Persia is in: => Worst player has Persia as key-civ, NONE-Archer from hut, Leningrad (switch names since we're playing Lenin) founded at 105,103, start settler
-3850 Researching alphabet
-3350 Alphabet -> Burial
-3200 Home island uncovered, size1-settler built
-3150 Moskau founded at northern coast on 3-special-site
-3100 Kiev founded north of Leningrad

Stats at 3000:
pop: 30k, cities: 3 techs: 2
plan: settle island, get monarchy, expand to islands 12 & 27

-2800 Burial -> Laws
-2150 Laws -> Mon
-2000 Smolensk founded at western edge of continent
-1650 Monarchy (revolt & establ.) -> mapmaking
-1500 Smolensk destroyed by barb archer, wonder started in Leningrad
-1350 None-Archer in Moskau survives barb attack
-1050 Mapmak. -> Currency; Sevastopol, Tblisi founded
-1000 Sverdlovsk founded

-950 trireme sets sails, hut on cont. 12: Archer
-900 Barb trireme spottet
-850 Barb Archer on cont.12m, Yakutsk founded on cont. 12, Chariot from hut
-800 Curr. -> Trade
-775 Another Chariot from hut
-700 Vladivostok founded, riot factor is on now, chariot pops hut with 7 horses, kills one
(chariot lost)
-600 Trade -> Writing
-550 Egyptians start HG (both are doing Pyramids already, 115s in Leningrad MPE)
-525 Explore cont. 27, New Smolensk founded
-500 hut on 27: Barbs!! ouch
(Chariot lost)
-475 Barbs on 12
-450 Krasnoyarsk founded
(Thebes Pyramids)
-425 Riga founded
-375 MPE built in Leningrad > NO AI has writing; hail Egyptians, give trade, get pottery, peace, give monarchy, maps, demand tribute, war
Persians: give some techs, get myst., peace, maps
Sevastopol starts HG and gets 4 vans
-350 HG built (Egypt to GW), Hail Egypt, give Bronze, peace, maps, Persia doing Math
-300 Another ouch! Barb Archer kills Vladivostok's phalanx, warrior almost kills Archer
(Valdivostok razed -2g)
-250 Writing (right after Egypt had it) -> Literacy, Rostov founded
-200 Astrakhan founded (far into island 12)
-175 Wladiwostok replaced;
Some planning: distance Persepolis 63 steps from New Smolensk, 36 from Astrakhan, requiering 21/12 ships for chain, 13/8 with Magellan
Best SSC would be Moskau (2 whales, 1 fish, all grass covered), let AI build Colossus for trading, priority for Michelangelo
-150 Hail Persia, give writing, get poly (should allow philo next)
-25 Lit. -> Philo; Issus founded, send 2 vans on their long, long way
1 AD Cunaxa founded on cont. 27

Stats at 1 AD:
pop.: 650k; cities: 16; techs: 13, gov: Mon, gold: 42, Trade routes: 0D0F; cost/turn:0
units: 4 settler, 15 warriors, 2 phalanx, 1 Archer, 2 boats, 3 vans, 2 dip
wonders: MPE, HG

Egypt: Enthusiastic, peace, 6 cities, 11 techs, Pyramids
Persia: Enthusiastic, peace, 5 cities, 13 techs

20 Egypt colossus, Persia Math -> Astro
40 hut: HBR (could have gotten it from AI, at least no Barbs this time)
120 Cremona (27) founded, hut near Astrakhan: nomads
160 Omsk founded, gift curr. to Egypt
220 Philo -> Mono -> Republic, Capua founded (I was planning to turn cont. 27 to C-town-land anyway), hut: Archer
240 Oimjakon founded
260 Odessa builds Michelangelo's Chapel
280 first domestic offshore van: 40g; Perm, Tobolsk founded, Crusader from hut, raise lux to trigger celebrations in Odessa for next delivery
300 Wow, 36g...
320 more nomads from hut
340 NONE Archer in northern 12, nomad on c-island
360 Persian-egyptian war, Persia Astro and switch GW to Copernicus, no tech-trading
380 Persia about to finish Copernicus! Republic (establ.)->Wheel

So two turn before completing their Great Wall the Persians discover astronomy! They have been accumulating wonder shields in Susa for as long as I can tell (from LH to Colossus to GW) and they were trying for 17 turns to unravel the mysteries of the stars.
Without Copernicus and a decent SSC, there is no point in carrying on...

I'm getting close to finishing but turns are taking a very long time now. Didn't keep a log but I had 17 cities at 40AD and was researching Republic then (though I think it took a bit longer before I got it and changed). Have 15 techs and Marcos was built.

Wow! That is some mighty bad Barbarian luck. Glancing at this one would think this was a Raging Hordes game instead of a Roving Bands one. In contrast I had no barbarian encounters before year +1 and only one since. I managed to ship in a diplomat in time and bribed both the archer and the trireme it came on.

Certainly bad luck but I would disagree with your decision to quit. This is not a normal game. With no key civ, tech cost is sky high and Copernicus is not as much help as usual. If you are planning to win by conquest, Copernicus hardly matters. If you are planning on winning by space ship, as I am, Copernicus is not as detrimental as it usually is. My own game plan to counter the effect of no key civ is:
1. After key techs (monrachy, trade, republic, and mono) and before invention turn science to minimal and hope to get more techs from huts. I am exploring with as many units as I can.
2. Rely on massive trade after invention. Not that trade is not big in other games. But here the caps are higher. Mid game trade from homeland to the rivals should pay pretty well.
3. Use the higher trade payoffs for more rapidly building up infrastructure.

The space race is bound to start later than usual but I do not forsee big challenges winning the race.

We play the game for fun. Winning despite a streak of bad luck provides its own distinct satisfaction.

I guess it wouldn't have been a problem to win the space race, but it would take so much longer without an SSC, especially until all was set up for big trade (Corporation, railroad through continent#12 and shipchains to the AI). And by then it wouldn't be anywhere near "competetive" for GOTM, so I rather chose to spend more effort on the next game.
