This has to be just an insane way to play domination. With Gods and Kings I bet it will be unreal. The special rules for Feed the Beast are: The game is played in phases: Phase 1 - You have to become the absolute ruler on your own continent. This means you have to own all cities and be allied with all independent city states on your continent. Phase 2 - In the first turn that you finished Phase 1 and have met all opponents, the "Beast" is defined. The Beast is the strongest civ at that turn (general score). - You have to conquer all other civs except the Beast and gift all captured cities to the Beast in the same turn that a city is captured. - This phase is finished when all cities on the other continent(s) are in possession of the Beast or they are independent city states allied with the Beast. - If you are attacked by the Beast in Phase 2, you may defend but you may not take any cities from them. Phase 3 - In the same turn that you finish Phase 2, you have to declare war onto the Beast and win a domination victory! The ultimate goal - Achieve world domination victory! General remarks: - The game is played on continents map, any size, pace or difficulty. - Islands belong to the nearest continent.
