Inspired by AgedOne, I am going to attempt a domination victory with every civ (in no particular order) on monarch. I've done this sort of thing before, and have found a few strategies: 1, don't expand out of stability area early 2, begin expansion after astronomy and democracy, you want resettlement and the democracy civic 3, have a massive treasury the reasons for 2 and 3 are so that you can buy essential buildings in you new cities immediately, ie, granary, harbour, courthouse, and if you're running free market (risky) lighthouse. Do that and your economy stability rating will go up along with the bonuses from resettlement. Anyhow, I decided to start with Carthage, here are some screenshots of where I am now, I will update later, but since each game will last a long time, I want to go through each attempt with the esteemed members of this forum, for hints and help for next time. I was very lucky here, I sent my three numidian horsemen to Egypt, to see if it was weak enough to conquer. I found one city with 2 warriors, and their capital had just been captured by independants, and only had warriors, it also had stonehenge Also, Rome and Greece were inept, I got to maths first, founded conf., got to construction, built the great wall, founded taoism, and then christianity. Currently at war with Arabs, but they're not really doing much, but I'll have to deal with them if I'm to settle the Levant at somepoint. I did have Ethiopia as my vassal, but the Wall just funnelled barbs into them and they were wiped out. Spoiler : Any comments of suggestions would not be unappreciated, my main issue is stability atm.
