Does anyone else keep statistics about his/her empire during the game? I do it once in a while, and it's quite interesting to see the progress of your empire in it, and if you've played a couple of games you can compare the statistics, see if you've improved, see what went wrong etc., and thus improve your overall strategy. And it's just fun to have a database of some games you've played, so that your most legendary games won't go down in oblivion. Here's an example of statistics I kept of a game of mine. I think I finished it before 1950, that's why there are no more stats for that year. The upper set of stats can all be observed as they are in the game at that year, the lower set of stats are some playful calculation with the other stats, some of them more valid than others. If you want to know what calculations I used for them, I'll tell you. So, if anyone else keeps statistics, it would be great to see how, which ones, how often, etc. I'm always looking to add more stats about my game to the sheets (although it shouldn't be too much work to get the stats, I'm not going to count how many cities are next to the sea for example). BTW, the above stats are from a game I played about 2 years ago, on Deity, barbs only from huts, wet, cool, 3 billion years, 7 opponents. BTW 2, the program I used for the stats is Excel, I know just about enough about it to be able to calculate stats and such.
