    I was thinking...should we do anything special on our last turn before victory? Here are some ideas:

    -Throw the entertainment slider to 100%
    -Invade Greece and/or Aztecs
    -Nuke Berlin (or another national capital of our choosing)
    -Give America techs so that they go from the most backward nation to on a technological par with us (except the Laser, as a safeguard in case they trade with Germany)
    -Give away all of our gold
    -Turn all of our citizens into taxmen
    -Sit around eating peanuts until our spacecraft is built (i.e. do nothing special)

    btw, I'm not endorsing this, just finding it quite amusing.

    I didn't think my "Nuke them?" Poll would see the daylight again.

    I think we should do 1 positive and 1 negative thing; give all we have (perhaps even cities) to a civ of our choice.
    And the positive is: build 1 ICBM and fire it at our biggest bullies. In case we'd do this, who should we fire at ? And who do we give all our gold, tech (except Laser), recources, excess luxes and perhaps some cities to ?

    I think fire at Germany; they signed several nations in MA's against us and irritated us for the last time in sneaking SETI from us.
    Donate to Persia; the only civ we haven't had a war with.

    Have we been at war with Greece before? If not we might want to donate to Alex too.

    Maybe I am being dense here, but is this all in aid of increasing our in-game score? Or is it just to have a bit of fun before blast-off? I am not a fan of nuking anybody.

    As for score, I suppose it really doesn't matter much; we aren't trying to set any records.

    Just dropping in again.. I'll be back for more vocal arguments when we start framing.

    I say nuke'em. How many ICBMs do we have/can we crank out? Otto, Alex, X-Man, Hammi. I say we nuke'em all!

    We have no ICBM's and one tactical nuke that could be loaded on to our nuclear subs. We are building an ICBM in Tyvek that will be done in 3 turns and we can crank out a few more with rushes. But I'd rather not cause a global nuclear catastrophe, just nuke a capital or two to disrupt trade and cause general mayhem in nations that have caused trouble for us.

    Whoa people, I hope you're saying we'll answer the "play a couple more turns" button and then do these fun things... If not, remember what the play sequence is -- AI's get a turn to retaliate before we launch the SS...

    Does it matter if they retaliate, once we have our last spaceship part with all shields needed for completion? :nuke: :D

    But I may not actually launch the nuke...it'll probably depend on the mood in the chat at the time.

    BTW, Germany doesn't (at the moment) have any ICBM's, though it does have a Tactical Nuke plus nuclear subs.

    I say let's party hardy. Crank the lux's up to 100% two turns before launch (if we can afford it) and go out rockin'.
