    King/Standard is probably the sweet spot then. Quick pace raises the difficulty (likely more so than going Emperor) and OCC games don't take long to play anyway. Emperor is a bit of a trade-off: more competent AIs will give you better deals, trade routes and potentially Research Agreements, but there's going to be more competiton for CSs and wonders, especially in the early game, and killing the culture leaders is a much bigger investment if you choose that route.

    Pocatello is fine, though I think I'd prefer a civ with more lingering bonuses.

    Happy New Year, all!

    I agree wholeheartedly that Standard would be the best speed, and I would also not prefer Pocatello (already omnipresent in Gauntlets and the HoF boards in general)

    I will suggest Thailand. Those City-State bonuses will help out the OCC throughout the game and will make getting CS allies an even more worthy goal to fit into the strategy.

    Agreed. Any civ with CS bonuses should help with OCC.
