Science win on turn 349 with score 832. Far later than most here. - How many cities did you settle or capture? Quite a lot. Wiped France, Russia and, eventually, Arabia of the map. Took a city from Egypt at the end, when they declared a war against me with only a few turns left to the victory. - What did you prioritize for research and policies? Early boost to writing and a lot of focus on science. Found out later that I had a lacking industry, so that slowed me down quite a lot with the projects. - Did religion come into play in your game, please explain. Nope. Arabia and Egypt turned a couple of cities here and there, but nothing that did anything for me. - How much warring did you do? Was it effective in supporting your Science objective? Quite a lot at the start to get rid of France and Russia. The most of the game from there was city building. The I wiped Arabia to make the turns eventful while waiting for my lack of industry. It helped since St. Petersburg was one of the cities I launched something from. - Were City-States helpful? Had suzerain of Stockholm the entire game and Hattusa for the most part. Didn't meet the ones at the other continent until far too late to make much difference. - Any surprises you ran into, how did you deal with it? Except the last DOW from Egypt right before the end I had control. - Did you enjoy the game? Yes! Finally a GotM I could finish without much problem. I learned quite a bit, so that's also nice. Some pictures from the end of the game: Spoiler : Oh, to win in the attached game just harvest the woods with the builder that have movement left.
