The year is 545 AD. I am playing Budica and am on a continent with Churchill, Hamurabi, Gandhi, and Peter. We are all Hindu. Everyone is friendly, except for Peter and Gandhi who fought a war against eachother early on. We collectively are in the macemen-xbow-catapult era of technology. I have a very minor tech lead on Peter and Churchill. I'm on par with Gandhi. Hamurabi has SEVEN techs I don't, and I have none he doesn't. Hamurabi has 5!! gems. He's also litterally the farthest civ from me on the continent. I would have to march through every other civ's teritory to reach his. He also controls the AP. I'm still expanding into a strip of land I blocked off (room for 2 good cities and 2 marginal ones), and I just can't accept any more cities until my economy is in better shape. Capturing his cities is not possible right now for economic, political, and logistical reasons. Razing them would just change the tech leader, since you can't destroy gems. He has no enemies, so throwing him into war with someone else isn't an option. How do I deal with him?
