I just finished my first game on Emperor level as Poland with 10 cities, which I thought I was on the way to victory, when Germany won a science victory, 10 techs ahead of me. What I find very odd is that they built 12 world wonders, and somehow managed to build a large army of nearly 500,000 solders. Now I thought you just cannot build that many solders if you are buildings lots of wonders, even with engineers. On a fractual map it is difficult to prevent runaway science civ's, also friends with neighbour Washington. Am I missing something?
