I've got another silly idea (and the boards go strange over the holidays, so it might crash and burn ). It only just qualifies as "strategy" but... it's Christmas, time for fun. The idea. I play a game on-line 30 turns at a time. After I post a save, the first to claim a "got it" can take the save and... ...go into worldbuilder. There do ONE of the following options. 1. Erase half of my cities. (if i have three, erase one. If I have five, erase 3. If I have 20 erase 10 !) 2. Erase half the cities of one AI civ 3. Erase half my military 4. Erase ALL my military 5. Erase half, or all the military of one AI civ 6. Add to my military a stack of - twenty units of the current era with 2 promotions. 7. Add to any one AI civ - twenty units of the current era with 2 promotions. 8. Add a plethora of resources to my land. 10. Add a plethora of resources to an AI civ's land 11. Remove all food resources from my land. 12. Add any number of food resources to my land Then re-post the save for me to play on with the new altered situation, after your divine intervention. And don't tell me which one you did. Let me find out the hard way. You can make my game much harder, or a bit easier , depending on if you are nice or evil. I'll play at Noble to encourage horrific acts of destruction and deviousness. Here's the start, and my first 30 turns. Spoiler : Unpredictable continents, Big and Small, Standard size , all other settings Normal. That's me in the crown Pictures tell the story; Spoiler : That's the situation at 30 turns. Time for some divine intervention. Do your worst !! First in first served.
