Have you ever managed to build all of the Ancient Age Wonders in a single game? And have you ever tried? Rules: Regent difficulty or higher. And if so, what difficulty do you stop being able to? Does not include The Statue of Zeus or Heroic Epic. Does not include conquering them. Built only. Whether building them is even strategically worthy is irrelevant, just talking about the pleasures of building Wonders for the sake of greedily building all the Wonders. Any starting parameters can be chosen except, obviously, turning off victory conditions, having barely any/no other civs in the game. No modified games, just the usual Conquests Complete version that includes all the additional Wonders that the original vanilla and Play the World didn't have. Supplementary discussion: Descriptive examples of when you've tried, ie: Hypothetical assumption propositions described as facts are irrelevant. This is an achievement I like to attempt when I fancy playing a bit of civ without wanting to commit to a whole game and something I treat as game by itself. ie: As soon as the AI beats me to an Ancient Age Wonder I'll quit and start a new game. Over the years I've had fun with this many times but I think only once have I ever got them all, and even then I may be misremembering. On a recent attempt at Regent the other day I was doing pretty well and had: Colossus Oracle Pyramids Mausoleum of Mousollos Temple of Artemis But got pipped to the post for the Hanging Gardens by just 5 turns. I could imagine that a perfect start would help, such as a few Cows on a River near some Gold Hills, but I've never had such a starting position in many thousands of tries. However, I guess the start-searcher cheat mod is a cheat that's allowed. If you are regular user of this cheat then maybe you can tell us what the ideal minimum starting position is to achieve this target. Most tactical walkthroughs and general advice about beating the game involve avoiding a lot of the Ancient Age Wonders, but for this challenge it's the only challenge and so I wonder if anyone's ever even worked this one out in fine detail yet?
