    post your favorite tech of the game and the quote.

    For example, mine would be

    Libaralism because in 3.19 that means you won the game. Spend a few hours mindlessly spamming curaissers for victory

    I like that quote for Corporation. So true as well :(

    Many good quotes in the game actually.

    Many are more inspiring, but none seem quite so apropos as Gunpowder
    "You can get more of what you want with a kind word and a gun, than you can with just a kind word." --Al Capone

    As for actual favourite tech, it would have to be Alphabet [one of the more inspiring quotes, but somehow Al's seems better suited to winning the game]

    Hmm, interesting playthrough :king:

    My favorite quote is from Civ3:
    "Victorious warriors win first and then go to war, while defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win" - Sun Tzu

    I think this quote came with the completion of some kind of espionage wonder/Project, but I'm unsure.

    Lots of great quotes. Gunpowder and Corp have already been mentioned, but this is another one of my favorites:

    "The bureaucracy is expanding to meet the needs of the expanding bureaucracy."

    I don't think espionage existed in Civ3, and if it did it wasn't until late game. I think the quote is from completion of the wonder "Sun Tzu's Art of War" which gave a free barracks in every city.
