1765 victory on 2nd try. 5 cultural CSs, coastal start with marble and gold. 3 civs on my continent: Ottomans, Germans, and Persians. Things I think I did well: Early rush to take out the Ottomans Didn't wipe out the AI on my continent - I made peace with both Germany and Persia after they had 1 city left and then waited til each were back up to 3 cities and attacked them down to 1 again. This gave me 2 extra cities that I would not have otherwise had. What I could have done better: Allied with cultural CSs earlier. It took me more than a dozen turns to start building Utopia after Christo was completed. Bought a windmill sooner. I don't know why I waited so long. As soon as I noticed that I did not have access to coal, I should have used the next GA to culture bomb and grab one nearby. (I later did do this, but my factory came at least 15 turns after I researched the tech) Could have micromanaged selling to the AI a bit better. There were times when I didn't notice a deal had ended and it cost me turns and gold.
