    Just wonder if anybody else got a Golden Age as Americans after building Universal Suffrage. That's what happened to me in a recent Continents game (Standard map) on Emperor. The Civopedia sez only Agricultural civs get just a chance for one if they build it, but Lincoln is Expansionist and Industrious. Weird, no?

    Not weird at all. When you complete a wonder, it is checked whether all your wonders do suffice for triggering a golden age. So that does include all your wonders, even those built by AI, but conquered by you. :)

    Many thanks justanick. Been playing Civ3 for over 15 years and didn't know that. Sheesh! BTW this was the first time I tried beelining Literature to build the GL. Kept me in the hunt until Pachacuti was dumb enough to sell me horses to make Knights for beating up on Carthage's Numidian Mercenaries. Having grabbed Hannibal's horse supply Lincoln's enterprise grew exponentially, eventually winning a Domination in 1830 AD.

    EDIT: Seems I'm not alone. Even Theov wasn't aware of this until recently:

    yeah that was weird when that happened,
    it's also quite rare to happen
    And you need to understand how GAs happen; new players will just take the info "your GA has started, wise men say" and move on without questioning 'why'.
