I've been playing around with revolting in the 1530 save, trying to get into Fundamentalism in 1540. With Einsteins in Burgos (science city) and Corfu (farthest down the list with 5+ citizens) and even with civil disorder averted, I'm unable to complete the research for Fundy. Is it impossible to discover tech in anarchy? If I cheat and put SoL in one of our cities, tech discovery happens on schedule. Seems the right choice would have been to research it a turn earlier (or use Communism or Monarchy, which are just as good for one-turn Oedo year conquest). Interesting sabotage idea. I only cashed in a third to half our trucks and earned well over 25k from them. It would be interesting to see how fast an economic recovery could be made. At the end of 1530, we could crank up to 80% tax rate and earn 3500 per turn, buying caravans at 235 recovers 14 caravans on the first turn, and those can be planned to earn 1000g or more each. You'd almost have to sabotage the delivery system too, but even at that I think a skilled planner could be fully recovered in 2 turns, economically speaking. There's been so much enthusiasm for this succession game, I'm surprised it even took this long. It's been great studying with the masters and fellow fanatics! I could use some EC practice, but then, I could use practice in a lot of things. Anything the group picks will be good.
