    We still don't know how many new achievements will come with GS, but let's not let that prevent us from speculating about what we might see.

    Guess #1: How many?
    I predict 49. IIRC, R&F had 37. GS costs 1/3 more, so should have 1/3 more achievements.

    Guess #2: Categories
    9 - win as each new leader
    8 - do something specific as each new civ
    9 - scenario-related
    1 - win a diplomatic victory
    1 - win a future era start
    3 - world congress related
    4 - related to new world and natural wonders
    3 - disaster related
    2 - climate change related
    3 - related to new infrastructure (and not in one of the above categories)
    3 - new city state related
    2 - do something interesting as a reworked base game civ (but not France, England, or Egypt, as they all have two civ-specific achievements already)

    Guesses #3-??
    Specifics! What do you think? Predictions? Speculations?

    Eleanor might have an achievement to conquer France when she's leading England or conquer England when she's leading France.

    Do you suppose Eleanor will have an extra achievement for winning as the leader of her second civ?

    I'll have to think of these later. Hungary could be to leverage troops from 5 city states at once, but that sounds kind of boring. I'm sure I can think of something else.

    This is actually weather related. As Japan, have at least 2 enemy units defeated by a hurricane in your territory.

    I was going to say have a volcano go off by Pompei, but Pompei isn't on their city list that I just looked up.

    Quite possible, but I'm going to guess not. Close to a toss-up IMO.

    Could a volcano pillaged tile, maybe where an unit was, become later an archeology site? If so, we can have an achievement to have an archeologist dig something for an acheology site close to a volcano.

    And, talking about Pompei, I really want something related to the Pink Floyd's concert there, as we have rockbands now. Something with "make a rockband concert close to a volcano".

    What would that be for? Maybe buying all of someone's diplomatic favour with cash? Or for something big like buying a city from someone with cash?

    I forgot about rock concerts! There will certainly be an achievement related to one, given how excited they were about them.

    What sort of venue was the Pink Floyd concert in? Perhaps "perform a rock band concert in a [theater/entertainment] district adjacent to a volcano".

    Certainly!

    I bet Sweden gets one where you need to settle all 5 terrain types.

    Or one when you got to beat a unit in a snow storm with a carolean.

    I really want something related to Mansa Musa hajj and the inflation he induced in Cairo. Something like "have +100 GPT from trade routes to Cairo and be converted to Islam". Hard to achieve maybe, the religion conversion part.

    A Roman amphitheater: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pink_Floyd:_Live_at_Pompeii . So maybe "As England, perform a rock band concert in a Roman Theater Square with an Amphitheater adjacent to a volcano".

    There really is a city called Sparks ? Those ancient colonies never cease to amaze me. :)

    Here are a few achievements :
    "Dam if you do, Dam If you not. "" - breach a Dam with a Spy.
    "Queen of the Nile" - as Egypt, have the Nile river flood a "specific number of tiles" during a game.
    "Desert canvas" - Build a triangle of Nazca lines on desert tiles.

    Naturally, they can make some cultural references and add additional conditions to each achievement. :)

    I suggested Black Army army after the Hungary first look. Not as good as Making a Liszt but easier to get.

    God Save the Queen - Using a Rock-band with the Punk Rock promotion [hopefully the change it to the loyalty one as opposed to Indy Rock], preform concert on Big Ben who is owned by England with the Fascism government.

    In reference to the Sex Pistol's "attack" on Westminster (Big Ben) playing their version of "God Save the Queen".
