    Wrong.

    de' Medici should be third.
    Rockefeller should be second.

    Yes, please close this game. It is not interesting what is better. A Bank with 2 places for artwork OR an oil resource.

    Let us start the best UU, so that the game is finished before the next dlc.

    It was a poll. Not an elimination thread.

    I'm seeing someone upvoting the current 3rd place choice and so it's premature to close it now. Once it's down to just two we can probably close this as an Adam Smith runaway.

    Giovanni de' Medici - (10-3) = 7 - Same as before.
    Adam Smith - 75
    John D. Rockefeller - (19+1) = 20 - Fossil fuels ftw!

    Giovanni de' Medici - 4 (7-3) - Great, but more situational than Rockefeller.
    Adam Smith - 75
    John D. Rockefeller - 21 (20+1) - The gold from trade routes is very powerful alone, and the oil can be a real lifesaver.

    Giovanni de' Medici - 4-3=1 - Great bonus, but Smith and Rockefeller are better.
    Adam Smith - 75+1=76 - The best...
    John D. Rockefeller - 21

    Now is the right time to declare that Giovanni is third, John D. Rockefeller is second with 21 points, and Adam Smith is first with 77 points!

    Carl Sagan, if someone makes a "best Great Scientist" elimination?

    Sagan is surely great, but he would have tougher rivals. Mary Leakey, Stephanie Kwolek, Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein, Hypatia...

    Giovanni de' Medici - 1
    Adam Smith - 77 (76+1) BEST
    John D. Rockefeller - 18 (21-3) GOOD

    Unless someone down votes Adam again he will end up on 84 points assuming he gets up voted each time ... kinda regretting down voting him for fun now I think I stole 9 points from him He should be near 100 points by the time it ends.

    Imo. Sagan is not just one or two levels, but many levels above all the rest. He's as stupidly overpowered for Science victory as Yerevan is for religious victory.
