LOL 69000 points in my second game :P

Is 69000 a lot? It seems like a lot, but I've only played 3 games.

I just messed around on my first game, and on my second I played as Ghandi on a small planes map and, without even planning to, got a conquest victory by 25BC. I am still tickled by that: a CONQUEST by GHANDI...

I also played one as ceasar (?), and actually tried to get a conquest victory, and had one by 700BC, but got only a fraction of the points. I guess Ghandi gets extra points for conquest? Or was it because in the Ghandi game I built a bunch of wonders and in the other game just made swordsmen and axemen. (I made way about 20 too many, BTW, one could probably win much, much faster than I did)

Are points explained in the manual or do we have to reverse engieer them?

So was it your second or third game? I got 21 549 points in my first game that I finished yesterday. The year was already 1952 - I just wanted to get to the modern era and nuke the yankees! That's because Civ4 was published later in Europe than in US.

how can you have that many points? The most I have ever gotten is a bit over 3,000, and that was when I had ALL techs and had conquered 3 civs!

The early you conquer the world, the higher your score.

You call this a story thread?

Geez, that last poster would make a scary flatmate.

Anyways, what good does your score do you? I don't get it.

well, it's not an all-kid game (there was a poll somewhere asking about the age of the player).
I'm 34, and can tell you 69 is not just a number
