    Inspired by Quint's Conquest the World, I bring Germany conquers the world!

    Civ III type: Vanilla
    Civ: Germany
    Opponents: Everyone else in Vanilla
    Size: Pangea
    Map stats: Warm, Wet, 5 billion years, Low Ocean
    Barbs: Roaming
    Win type: Conquest, but I left space checked 'cuz it's cool and the world will fall first anyway.

    Difficulty: Warlord. This is what I play at, but if I win this game I'm moving up to Regent.

    Strategy: Get horsemen early and eliminate the closest civilization or two for space (or leibenstraum...:p ) and exploration. After that, colonize a core and a secondary with FP. Wait until Panzers are out in force, plus carriers w/bombers and transports at every coastal location, then declare war on EVERYONE at once and conquer the hard way. Alternatively, I'll wait until I have Modern Armor, radar artillery, and maybe some nukes to soften defenses, but maybe I can't wait that long. We'll see.

    It all depends on which Civ I am.
    Very interesting idea. I'll be sure to read and post. Germany is my second favorite Civ to play as, so this will be cool. :) :)
    Excellent! I am so glad that someone is writing something like "Conquest of the World." It has been one of a kind lately, in my opinion. Yay!
    :) :goodjob: :king: :lol: :D :egypt: :clap: :bowdown: :woohoo: :wavey:

    Sorry if I might deflate expectations, but I've decided not to spend the time and energies devoted to writing the story, cropping the pics, etc. I will still play it, and I might post some important events, but not a turn-by-turn readout like Quint.

    Er... That game set up didn't work out right. (didn't get pyramids, a must for me) So I tried it again, and barbs sacked my capital. Tried it again, and got bogged down in boring city growth. And I don't think I'll be posting, unless...

    I just skip all the early growth stuff and go straight to whenever I get Panzers. You'll know when that time comes.

    I'm a casual gamer. I do it for fun, and I play on Warlord. Don't worry, the pyramids are the ONLY must-have wonder for me.

    If I ever choose to go beyond Warlord, maybe I will do something else.

    Yeah for real. I've played about 5 games on regent now and am about to move up to monarchy. For me it hasn't even been a struggle to not build any wonders... in my opinion, its a lot more efficient to have the city building swordsmen or other things. I haven't built a single ancient age wonder in any of my games... first wonder is usually adam smith's trading Co, and then Darwin's voyage... and if i have a scientific leader, ill rush the hoover dam. but that's usually it.

    Hopefully this will pay off once I move up a lvel :D

    Darwins was in civ2. So, he is talking about TOE. They do the same exact thing in both games.

    I'm pretty sure It's ToE, cause it's kind of related to Darwin... Unless your post was a joke, killerkid.
