I played the Songhai game #152, here was the outcome. Spoiler Songhai Edge 152 : I Sent my settler South following the river and founded on a coastal hill 3 tiles from Marrakech. I stole 3 workers from him in our initial war, and later a 4th that he lost as a Settler to barbs. 4 City Tradition. Capital BO: Monument, Shrine, Granary, Settler, Caravan, Scout, Settler, Library… Allied Kyzyl on t46 through a boosted 500g gift & embassy quest. Entered Medieval through Theology t54 to double my culture gain from that, and bought a Garden while building National Epic. Prioritized Mud Pyramids in all cities and got my Prophet on t60. (I had picked Sun god for the pantheon which was not the best choice at all, but still fine). Tithe and Cathedrals. Bought 1 missionary to spread. I rushed both Guilds, the N. Epic, and Grand Temple. Quick Speed strangely had everyone demanding 3gpt for Open borders at first while I was exploring. I got 3 Universities up Asap but didn't have time for National College before I hit Printing Press t97 (proposed Arts Funding) and went for Leaning Tower, but China beat me to it 3 turns in. Now I built NC, researched Acoustics/Architecture, and built Uffizi and Louvre in my cap, Sistine and Taj Mahal in my first expo. After buying all my Cathedrals, I enhanced t111 and took Religious Community/Religious Texts. Policies: Tradition 6, Aesthetics 2, Patronage, Rationalism 2, Exploration... T119, Arts Funding passes and Worlds Fair actually fails by the AIs, which is perfect because production is so tight for wonders and Archaeologists. Now I propose WF. Adopted first ideology through Oxford Radio t130, I took Order and picked Factory science as my tier 2 a few turns later. Borrowed thousands from Austria in the turns before our friendship expired, then paid her to backstab Morocco and warred her. Assyria backstabbed her a few turns later. When I made peace with her five turns later it was as if nothing had happened, but eventually she picked Autocracy and started to hate me. She had bought out 3 CS’s by this point, was the Culture leader, and had won the WF (I didn’t end up trying for 1st when the time came, went for Silver only). I had 3 allies in the 200s at this time (2 Culture, 1 Happiness). Made Morocco Host, he proposed my religion as WR and it passed, and we successfully voted down a repeal the next round. There were a few late game fumbles: Babylon beat me to Kremlin by 1 turn, and I lost the International Games by 30 production. That slowed me down a bit, but I won a Cultural Victory on t199 with a couple musician bombs.
