    This is a thread for what isn't an achievement but really should be.

    Out of shear frustration:

    #1.) "Hold the spice, please." Play as Indonesia and do not settle any cities on another continent.

    and a close second:

    #2.) "Shaka Who-loo?" Declare war on Shaka the same turn you meet his forward-settling psychopathic little self.

    1) Elite Force: have your starting Warrior survive until the end of the game and obtain every possible Promotion.

    2) Wolfpack: playing as any Civilization, sink 10 units with Submarines in 3 turns or less.

    3) It is Better to be Feared than Loved: have every single AI either "Guarded" or "Afraid", with no less than half the other civilizations being "Afraid".

    Ha! Those are great. I like the idea of my warrior surviving til the end. I always lose track of that guy.

    How bout:

    "The wasteland" Raze every city you conquer except the capital.

    And

    "Not yo turn" Have an opponent get an ancient ruin with your unit one tile away.

    Biting off more than you can chew - Lose a Deity game without having won an Immortal game.

    You're not getting this - Found 3 cities, Start a Religion, Find El Dorado, Researcha Technology, Find a Ruin, Create a work of Art, Music and Writing, Extract an archeology artifact from Egypt, Spain, 8 city states, Rome, Poland, Mongolia, Build the Great Library and have a Barbarian Brute take your city. All of this MUST be done on Turn 438. On Deity.

    And they said it was impossible - Have Krakatoa within your city's working range

    Supremacy - As Spain, have control of at least 2 Natural Wonders, have the One with Nature Pantheon in those cities, and enact Natural Heritage Sites.

    A lot of these are hilarious, but this had me laughing out loud at work (don't worry, I was on my lunch break) :)
