Hi, I just won my second game on Immortal as France - won cultural by turn 319 with a final Tourism output of 840. Can some experienced players advise me: Overall, was this a slow, fast or average win? Was my Tourism output low, high or average? Here's the highlights of my game - your thoughts are appreciated: Tech mile stones: * Acoustics (SC was my first wonder) * Printing Press (Still missed GT) * Architecture (Got Uffizi, PT then built Hermitage) * Radio (Used Oxford to jump from Electricity - hard build Eiffel, rushed Broadway with Faith GE) * Archeology (Managed to Louvre but was quite late as I needed to open Exploration) * Plastics * Telecommunications (rushed NVC then used Rationalism finisher to get Internet) * Radar (Airports) * Computers (Built GFW before to prevent anyone else getting it) * Nuclear Fission (Just for defense ) Polices: * Tradition * Aesthetics opener, Cultural Centers, * Rationalism (except Scientific Revolution) * Freedom until Media Culture * Finish Aesthetics Some general questions: The AIs had huge military throughout the game but i managed to avoid full scale war - even against neighbor Dido - I get the impression if they had declared on me I would have lost. How do you deal with this? I was luck that runaway Augustus allowed me to have Open Borders. If he hadn't i might not have been able to win in time. How do you deal with this? What if the runaway builds GFW? Is cultural harder with few players (small map), as you are more likely to get a single AI culture hog who spams wonders etc? Any advise to help me improve would be appreciated.
