I was messing around with France/OCC/culture on emperor level over the weekend, trying to get the fastest peaceful culture win, and was able to get my win time down to 218 turns on the third try. All 3 wins were under 250 turns, so this is pretty easy. The basic strat was to get as much tourism as fast as possible, steadily increasing throughout the game instead of relying on a late-game slingshot. Instead of the internet being the end goal, it was radio and refrigeration. Started with GL, ToA and HG. Took drama & poetry for the free tech while researching philo, immediately build writers guild before NC. This ensures a classical era great writer, and hence the earliest possible theming bonus on the GL. Then I built Parthenon which itself is not great, but the free artwork makes it much easier to fill both sistine & uffizi ASAP later on. Opened Renaissance with acoustics because I had 2 great works of art ready for Sistine, then Printing press. Got Globe and then Uffizi with full theming bonuses really fast. social policies were straight tradition (wonder bonus before monarchy) straight aesthetics (culture from happiness 1st, which is great in OCC). then rationalism (secularism and right side) and 2 in patronage, then freedom ideology. Just curious, has anyone been able to get the win time down under 200? I think there is some room for improvement but not sure exactly where. Probably the timing of building the musician guild is the trickiest thing. BTW these are pretty good starts I used, but not superpowered. They need good food and production potential (this is OCC after all) but I didn't have a mountain or Petra start or anything.
