Trying to play a game as Egypt and last until the end of the game without collapsing. Not easy: with barbs, natives, either a hostile Europe or a hostile Middle East and of course, the good ol African economy boosting my stability (sarcasm) it provides many challenges for the player. Even with Great Wall I still have Impis running across and they're such a pain as they love to avoid combat when they will lose and go after an important resource, worker or road. Although the barbs in Europe may be more numerous it's easier IMHO because you have natural choke points in Europe (the Alps, the Pyrenees, the Hellespont, etc) that the vast Sahara does not provide. My first inspiration for doing this was to get a cultural victory as I thought their UHV already puts Egypt in a great position to do so, then I realized that the game really doesn't want Egypt to last that long! Anyway I'll keep on working at it but was wondering if anyone has done it already or are willing to have a go at it. Screenshots/save games are most welcome. Good Luck!!
