Can I win this game? The game is Alexander, continents, Emperor, everything else standard. Current turn is 226. The save file is attached. Read on for more details. I screwed up in the early game thinking I'd get a religion and I invested too much time into in. I didn't go for religion early enough, but when I did I invested heavily into it getting the district, shrine and the wildcard slot policy. Stonehenge religion was gone and there were 2 left. I had the lead by quite a bit for the next prophet then suddenly they were all gone. I should have ignored religion and just focused on taking out Russia. Russia because he was aggressive early, before I even had a 3rd city up. I didn't do any early archer/warrior rush because of the religion distraction. I ended up waiting for my UU. I ended up slightly behind in tech and my war with Ghandi lasted far too long. This was mostly due to lack of me fielding a large enough army, so spending too much time replacing units and waiting between cities for units to heal. Overall, I'm not in a bad a place but I'm further behind than I should be at this point. Of course, I don't know if any of this really affects my problem currently. The problem is Kongo. He's far ahead in tech, compared to the entire world, and he is halfway to a culture victory. Somebody has been increasing their domestic tourism enough to keep him around 50% for a little while now, but i'm not sure if at some point he will run away with tourism or start the space race. My gut tells me he should be my next target. If I can take him out, I'm guaranteed to win. I just don't believe I am able to defeat him. For units, the only thing I've seen of his are AT crew (corps). My musketmen probably will not stand up against that. My army is small, he is mostly inland so ships will only help somewhat. I don't believe he has air units, but I'm too far behind him to get them first. I'm not gaining on him technologically, but falling further behind. I think he's 160 bpt and i'm 125 iirc. Anyways, this is probably way more information than I needed to write. Just curious, would you abandon this game? If not, how would you proceed from here?
