    By that I mean games in which you set your reaserch slider to near 0 and use espionage to get techs.

    Can anyone spare some advice in general? Am I supposed to beeling Alphabet and then make espionage slider as high as I can without going under 0GPT as I am doing right now? If not what should I be doing? I only tried this kind of strategy once at a Earth18 map with Izzy. It worked quite well, but I found the worst thing about it that you cannot get betters techs then your neighboors have so when I thought my economy was strong enough I switched to reaserch. Is that what you are supposed to do?

    I'm no expert, but beelining masonry and chop out the Great Wall is gets you a strong head start in espionage.

    Wait for madscientist's upcoming Role Play Challenge(RPC): Julian Assange of wikiCivilization, currently being discussed here. One restriction is turning science off and focusing on espionage after teching alphabet
