Well, I found after several games that attacking China is not the easiest road to take... Here's why: 1.) If you capture Beijing with your two warriors (which I did only about 50% of the time), then you have to raze it. The maint. costs are too high to keep it while trying to research religions... (Unless you found your capital in China... But I refuse to beleive you could get Judaism... the man must have had a fluke.) So you're stuck rushing for theology/math/calendar with devine right as a nearly unattainable backup. And Razing Beijing just ensures that Japan will be HUGE. 2.) NOT going for Judaism presents some other problems as well. On the games I went for the Chinese religions, ignoring monotheism (for a while), I found that Persia almost ALWAYS makes judaism their state religion... Making close borders + heathen religion a problem. I got walked on by persia about four out of five games... I stand by the "standard" way of playing India for the UHV... Judaism, budda, hindu, pop theology, then GP Devine Right... In my opinion, if you can luck your way to the first three religions, you win the UHV.
