: Settled in place. Karakorum builds scout, warrior, scout, settler, Yurt, then settlers/workers.
1st Settler builds Ta-Tu SE which will start 3-sq ring. It'll be 20K city! It has 3 Cows and Wheat, what more do we need.
The plan is to amass mighty army and get lots of GLs as we are Militaristic, productivity won't be that important.
Scouts pop lots of Techs from huts! AIs are useless but huts are great! We even get Lit and and Monarchy from huts, hurray! So can build Library after Oracle. Research is set to min so we get lots of cash.
: reached MA, we are Monarchy.
Hand-built Temple, Oracle, Library. Bought Colosseum. Building HG, 5 turns left.
Later this turn we will gift Korea, Germany and Babs, trade for Feudalism, Mono, Engineering and will upgrade Swords to MIs. Just in time for huge Barbarian hordes to reach us and to give our troops a chance to become Elite.
: We get our 1st Great Leader Ogodei in war with Japan!
Since last update: finished HG, bought Cathedral, building GLib, 3 turns left.
Will spend Ogodei on Sun Tzu after finishing GLib as nothing else is availble.
We have 13 horses and 13 MI, most of them elite.
Researching Theology at min speed as we are still in Monarchy.
: Germany got Chivalry! Traded, upgraded to Keshiks, attacked Egypt while still demolishing Japan, entered Golden Age! Building FP as no other wonders available.
Still no Republic in sight.
: Built 1st Army. Still in GA, finished FP in 50AD, used GL to build Sistine Chapel in 70AD, researched Edu and built+bought Uni in 230AD, building Kibitka as nothing else available. Time for Heroic Epic! Meanwhile AIs finally got Republic, waiting till end of GA to switch.
: destroyed Japan, used GLs to build Bach, Heroic Epic and Copernicus. GA is over, revolting to Republic.
: out of things to build, so made peace with everyone. Used GLs to build Leonardo after AIs finally got Invention, and then Newton University. Researching PP to get to Shakespear.
: Industrial Age, here we come! Got Steam Power and Medicine after trading with AIs. Meanwhile Korea managed to get Economics, so used GL to build Smith while researching towards Free Artistry. Shakespear in 1 turn after switching from Kibitka prebuild. Was at war with China and Aztecs to get another GL who's now sitting in Ta-Tu twiddling his thumbs until we get Industrialization. Made peace again.
: long peace broken by Korea who attacked us over the mountains. We have so many Elites but nothing to build while another GL twiddles his thumbs in Ta-Tu. Steel in 3 turns. Sigh. Use Veteran Cavs to beat off waves of Archers and MIs to promote them to Elites.
Reached Modern Age somewhere in the 1400s. Decided not to trade AIs up to avoid annoyance of Bombers and Fighters flying everywhere. The game is basically done already. Research Computers, buy Research Lab, use GL to build SETI, go to war while researching Internet, use GL to build it, rinse and repeat until out of things to build.
- 20K achieved and we win!!!
