    Honestly I do not even know what I am doing.
    I just play this game like every other Civ game.
    Kill Civs and Take Cities.
    I take too many actually I should learn how to Snipe Capitals only.

    Up to turn 233 now.
    I don't even understand the World Climate.
    I thought I was in trouble and the world was going to be covered in water.
    However, it looks like that isn't even close.
    0% 0% and temp is rising less than 1 degree which I suppose is a lot.
    Global Warming is a Lie anyway right??

    It took a little time but I killed Hungary.
    On my way into Machu Picchu Land.
    I have 3 out of 10 for the Diplo Victory but I don't understand that either.

    Whatever... I'll either kill every city or win some other way.
    The mini map looks really good with all that Purple!
    Sure I could of Liberated but why bother... I'm greedy!
    Praying to be put under water to be honest. :)


    In case you missed my settings:

    I am playing as Dido since she was at the top of the list in the game.
    Deity, All Standard Settings, Pangaea Map, Natural Disaster 2, 7 GS AI Civs.

    Spoiler Turn 233 :

    Little did we know that the "Take On Me" achievement for winning as Sweden wasn't the only Scandinavian blunder Firaxis made this expansion.

    Great Bath was built earlier than I have ever seen a wonder built.

    I forgot to mention Bombers.

    Bombers are just sickening.
    One Bomber can basically wipe out a 90 strength city in two turns.
    Just ONE Bomber lol.
    Why did I build RAs lol?

    (Apologies: just noticed that this would be better placed in the 1st game of GS thread.)

    I broke down and (instead of Russia) played as the Maori at marathon pace with 12 civs and 20ish CS on the largest continents map. (I had all the new civs plus Scotland and the Netherlands. The latter two got wiped out early.)
    The Linux version crashed at turn 60, but after reloading the autosave, it performed perfectly, and very quickly, for the next 550+ turns.
    Even though the map is much smaller than I like, I've enjoyed it immensely. It's like getting drunk from those little bottles in a motel minibar ("getting pissed in Legoland" some wag once put it.)
    It was strange to get so many great people and wonders. I usually play against 20-25 civs and it's much tougher to get as many.
    Pachacuti was the best of the AIs, and IMO he'll be tough to beat when driven by a human player. Dido was a worry too. (Very early opinion, of course!)

    In short: the Maori are a hoot to play.

    Maybe Dido can go over Mountains.
    It seems I bypassed this mountain somehow!?
    I think I went over the Mountain.
    You can see my machine gunner on the tile next to the mountain.
    I was able to double attack that city.

    Or they should at least have introduced a Fusion powerplant in the Future Era. So many missed opportunities in the Future Era... nothing but GDR upgrades and science victory boosts.

    You don't see the tunnel there?

    There's a mountain tunnel, so you're attacking through the mountain, I think.

    Obviously I am the only one who missed the tunnel.
    I forgot that was a thing now :)
    Thanks to all of you for the help!

    It was more fun when I thought I was on top of that mountain!!

    LOL insufficient oil resource!
    I really have no clue :)

    Inquisitors don't seem to remove all heresy in your cities anymore. :( They only remove small chunks. Had to build quite a few inquisitors to get rid of encroaching protestantism. My religion is called Greed is Good.

    As Mansa Musa I'm going to buy my way to cultural victory. I wasn't sure what victory method I would go for, but cultural it is. I already bought a ton of great works and relics so far.
