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! :D That's because Civ4 was published later in Europe than in US. :lol:

    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!

    what difficulty were you playing on? and no offense, but its much easier to get a conquest on a smaller map...try doing it by then on a large or huge map which i typically play with...though if i did pangea im pretty sure i couuld heh.

    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.

    Yeah, how desperate do you have to be to be turned on by the number 69?

    but unfortunately most people who sit at home and play civ 4 will have no personal experience of such things

    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:D
