    UFO's come to you and abduct you.
    They will destroy earth, but they give you a chance to save it.
    You need to win a DEITY standard/standard/standard Pangaea CIV5 game with a civ and VC of your choice for first try without any test, training, reload or interruption.

    What would be your choice of CIV and main tactic?


    Mine is:
    Mongols – tech Keshik while defending with ChA – Kill everyone.
    Or
    Bablylon, 1-2 City Sci. Vic. Peacefully, but defending with a lot of ranged

    Mongols tactic may fail due rough terrain, or unluky city placement so I would go with Bab after all.

    Grab early religion, spread it like the plague and use the bulging coffers to reach for the stars!!

    Does this mean Sid Meier is in fact the modern day ET?

    Marry few CS's with early loans, defend with their armies while discovering Bombers. KKND.

    I will tell that i'm the best civ player of all time and will say that i can beat an OCC domination game in less than 150 turns. Some turns later i will ask the UFO guy if i can go to the bathroom. Then i will flee by a window and bring some cookies for survival times...:eekdance:

    I'd lure all the enemy fighters within range for a Death Blossom.

    id do the same thing i'd do if i were sent to prison - voluntarily offer my services.. less degrading and traumatising that way, to be the one in control.

    France because they are the easiest civ to manage you're empire because of the +2 culture you can get social policies pretty fast

    I would play as Pacal, befriend the aliens by striking up conversations about our headdresses and staffs, and when the time is right I'll hijack a UFO and fly to the Alpha Centaurai System, check out that new planet...
