    Wow, a chieftain game. I'll try to play for landing, but I have to remind myself what it's like on the easier levels - the computer basically puts up no fight whatsoever and is somewhat useless as a trade partner because of there slow growth.

    I thought of a landing game as well. A 1AD spaceship launch would be the ultimate goal, would be difficult , but worth a try.

    Sure that landing is sensible? I know that restarts are on, but in a chieftain game, won't there be loads of turns before 1 AD, making conquest quicker than landing?

    Conquest should be very easy on chieftain and can be done very quick. But some players like special games.... Space ship launch in 1 AD is the earliest possible launch and is possible. I did it in the last chieftain game.....but it's all about planning and organizing well.

    Conquest is always quicker than landing. I just prefer the latter.

    Why can't you launch before 1AD?

    The spaceship parts become available at 1 AD and not before. And to launch at 1 AD can only be done with the zoom to city trick...so it's pretty tough.
