Hi... Just won my first Apollo victory... Everything was random, and was basically a duel between me and the AI... While I won a Emancipation Vicotry on turn 194, it got me thinking about what I have seen in these threads.. and I wonder how you do that... Power - a couple of experts here were talking in different threads about accumulating over 100k in power at 400+ / turn. My best is playing at Gemini level and was 150 / turn and 20k at the end... Science - How in the world do you get 600+ beakers per turn? In the game above, I topped out at 180 / turn and every space available was either a manufactury (in the city I was building the gate) and acadameis EVERYWHERE else.... Affinity - yes I know the secret of using the setup to have the game tell you where all of the progentor sites are... but to me, that makes affinity too easy. Since the game ties affinities to scientific advancements, this one goes with the last? One additional question... Is there a particular affinity that is tied to each of the sponsors? Is there a bonus applied to let's say ARC for going to one affinity or the other?
