CV T230
Ludwig has not bonus towards religion and I wanted to play with his U-boot (on an archipelago map it would
actually be a useful unit), so I decided to go for domination victory.
I started conquest once I got frigates, but won a CV by accident, just before taking the fourth capital. Same
problem here: too much tourism from monopolies! (+405% tourism from just 3 monopolies - that seems
massively overpowered?)
Lots of wonders under construction will remain unfinished :D
But, was a fun game, thanks!!!

Could have finisied many turns earlier, but I HAD TO conquer all of their cities. In fact one city survived as I made peace with Sweden - stupid! :)
I couldn't decide if I want to go for domination or religious in the beginning. I then thought it would be a fun crusade game and it was.
I had a military alliance with england in the beginning and took out the netherlands first. Then i attacked two at the same time which was not the fastest way but made a lot of fun.
Once I had taken out two civs it was much easier as my science ramped up.
Thanks for the game!

RV turn 136. Peaceful

Pretty cool game to go religious with Ludwig on an Archipelago. Never would’ve tried that otherwise.

I moved W at the start leaving the starting tile for a Hansa and getting closer to those foxes. Went scout settler and sent them S to get my second city a good HS on the other side of those mountains. Researched HS early to get those districts built. Got a relatively early pantheon to snag fishing boats and then the second religion, taking work ethic and holy order. Filled it out later with pilgrimage and mosques for an efficiency-focused build.

But the real key was ripping culture between Ludwig cheese and Nan Madol suz. On T86 I was able to drop in Serfdom as I completed ancestral hall then place two cities. A few turns later I completed a 7 city Colosseum. I waited until ~T100 for Theocracy, then started churning out cheap apostles with three extra charges from mosque + golden age. Eliminated the other religions by ~T120 then completed the mop up action.

==Still playing haven't read any of the rest of the thread==
I settled one tile west to be nearer to the fur and about 10 turns in Mt Vesuivius erupts scattering food production, lots of culture and a little science everywhere which gave me a massive headstart for my Capital and for my Stonehenge City on the otherside of the volcano. I might have a chance to win my *first* diety game with that headstart. Stonehenge - t49 and Political Philosophy - t50 which seems nuts. And a classical era golden age I don't know what to do with; only two cities and two incompete holy sites. But crazy culture per turn and also two galleys out exploring and I expect to sell a ton of luxuries to try and catch the AI. I chose Earth goddess for passive faith, Warrior Monks and the Science/4 believers one. Never ever used Warrior Monks more than just going - oh these things suck. I've been playing previous GOTMs for just about 6 months but I've never finished one.
I have a problem finishing things. :) Hopefully I'll be back at the end of this with a save, read the the rest of the thread then.
Turn 243 RV, Score = 1739.

I think I was having a bit too much fun building wonders. :) I played a peaceful game, but never really focused on faith generation, so it wasn't until the last 20 or so turns when my religious unit production really started taking off. Fun game though!
