I was just thinking, I know I can't be the only one that takes extensive notes in a game. My wife doesn't get it, she often asks me why in playing a game for fun am I doing homework? I keep several pages of graph paper with charts on: 1. All of my cities, what they are for, how many of which units are protecting them. 2. How many resources I control or trade 3. All other civs, how many times they've begged for a free tech (2 points if they were withholding one when they begged), demanded I stop trading, demanded I go to war, etc. and use that for my own diplomatic idea of how I feel about them. 4. All of my invasion forces and aircraft carrier groups, though not my ships defending the coast, that would be too cumbersome. So how many others take notes, and on what?
