    I like warring but with extra utilities so I can enjoy other parts of the game at the same time.

    Yes, they are huge fun, because they are kinda gamble. It's either OP game or meeh game.

    I'll post screen in other threads, but I've started the Spain game last night and got two NW. Got my religion enhanced by like turn 15-20. :crazyeye:

    I love playing as Spain, even if I don't get lucky with NW, simply because their UA encourages you to send dozens of Conquistadors to explore. It doesn't let you get into passive mode like other civs, and once you find NW, prepare for war, because, that land must belong to Spain. :king::lol:

    Most fun to play? Venice! Because it plays so much different then rest of the civs.

    France is also fun, because you can get into constant war and not worry about culture. Their UA now rocks.

    Zulus\The Huns\Mongols - well, if you're going to be bad, at least do it right.

    India - Dunno, I love going all warmongering with Ghandi. :lol: Oh, and dropping :nuke: with Ghandi. Always fun. :goodjob:

    Greece - you can never go wrong with Alex and Greece is one of the most flexible civs. They can go with any vic type at any moment thanks to their UA.

    Inca. Walking over hills (even with forest) with 1 pt of movement always makes me feel like a cheater, and the hill farms don't suck either, but primarily it is the hill movement.

    Inca. They are great for whatever way you are trying to go.

    Maintenance-free roads on hills let's you get those up sooner without killing your economy.
    Normal movement on hills is ridiculously useful for defending and attacking in war.
    And finally, Terrace Farms. These alone can turn any city with hills into a monstrous powerhouse.

    Poland is also very fun to play. Free policy for each new era is just insane (arguably OP).
    If you get lots of sheep/cattle/horses in range of your cities, the Ducal Stable gives nice boosts to hammers and gold :)

    I have to agree that it's Inca. 1 movement pt on Hills is ridiculously strong for warfare, and their mountain bias coupled with Terrace Farms give you insane growth and science potential. They are great for anything you want to go.

    Also, Poland. Enough said, anything about them is OP.

    Mine are Rome and Japan.

    Rome because when you are going for any type of victory, it's always great to have a 25% production bonus for things already built in the capital, which is where you're basically going to build everything first.

    Japan because while their zero may not be that good, the samurai dominates mid game and with the UA of Japan, it makes it a lot easier to breeze through enemy armies. Their UA is also good for getting rid of those pesky barb camps.
