This is my first time posting -- apologies if this question has been asked before. I tend to play mostly on 'continents plus' and I frequently find that by the time I've discovered the other continent, one of the civs on that continent has already gobbled up all its neighbours and is pretty well unbeatable. Which particular civs should I exclude from my games to prevent this from happening? More specifically: a) Which civs are guaranteed to gobble up their neighbours if left unchecked? b) Which civs are generally unable to prevent themselves from being gobbled up by a neighbour?
