EDGE#89: All that land, part 2 Welcome to the "midsummer special". This one has a great map that makes it possible to expand. However, there are not so many unique luxuries. Anyway, you have a lot of land that rightfully is yours. The task is to play as the Ottomans on an unmodded Continents map with Large size and Standard speed. QC and QM are turned on and all VCs are enabled as usual. The starting position is a great Salt start and even if you don´t believe it, the starting position might connect to the ocean. Is there a gibraltaresque strait? I am sure you will like this one. Enjoy! There is a short recap of my second game behind the spoiler. Spoiler : SIP and Scoutx2-Shrine-Granary-Settlerx3. 4 city NC on t93 and Education as late as t116. I founded a fifth afterwards. I stole two workers from Polynesia early and one from a CS. Participated in an early war against Mongolia without much action but liberated Tyre with the help of Polynesia. Siam and France both took cities of Genghis and he was pretty much out of it by t120. Fifth religion with Earth Mother/Tithe/Mosques/Plowshares/Messiah. I was late to Renaissance and fifth to Industrial. Once again Russia was the forerunner in Science and also Siam was very strong. Siam went Freedom and I decided to follow, which turned out to be a decent move. Polynesia went Order and so did Russia. Napoleon took Authocrac(z)y and I used this by sponsoring some wars. Eventually France had a bad time as Russia and Siam ganged up on them. Russia was first all the way to Information but this time I managed to build HST and this was decisive. There were wars all over the place beyond t300, but eventually I launched on t318. Russia would have needed less than 10 turns to finish and Siam´s CV was stopped only by Russia. SP: full Liberty, Commerce 2, full Rationalism and Freedom 8. The only I regret is that I didn´t engage in naval warfare as much as I had hoped.
