    My current game I have activated Apocalypse to be able to fertilize woods activly. It is a gamble, but it might be worth it. Another benefit is that you have more volcanic tiles for Rapa Nui. But ofc a proper disaster can also ruin the game if it takes out your space port city, so maybe not such a good idea...

    What do people think about Dramatic Ages? I have actually never tried that mode. I was worried about having to use my wildcard slot, which I usually need for Diplomatic League (since I run Oligarchy a good part of the game unless playing peaceful).

    It's a trade off for sure, and might not be worth it, but I like it. Extra movement on settlers, and two of the other heroic age cards can be useful in some scenarios. Not sure if it is helpful that you get a lot of free cities? I think it all depends on game setup and strategy.

    So I had another go at Mattias, this time with a huge map, so that I would not run out of cities to pillage. That did not really work... At turn 74 now I have all the cities I can take... 67 in total! The goal is to break the 100 turn barrier, but it is extremely close, so not sure if it is possible yet. I have 31 techs to go, and I need to finish them all by turn 95. I still have Oxford techs and Nalanda, so thats 3. But I need some instant science from GSs, and probably also pillage either Science state campuses or give away my own towns to pillage my own campuses... Sadly it will not be a HoF game, but still fun to see if Matthias could pull it off. Two months ago I would not even have considered him a contender.

    Finally managed to finish the Matthias game. It was very close, but we have a sub 100 standard speed SV. =) It was actually a quite interesting game, so I will give a game recap, but as it is not a HOF-game I will post it in the strategy section during the week. To do this as a HOF-game will be quite tedious, as there is so little time to get everything to fit, and so many cities and troops to handle. So it requires a lot of planning and thinking many turns ahead. But all in all it was very fun to see how fast Matthias can be, and a sub 100 SV is a great milestone, so Im happy about the game even though I would have preferred it to be a HOF-game.
