Could everyone start giving some feedback about which ONE trait you think it is absolutely critical for us to have and why? Please only pick one, and please say why. Also, since this is just for me (as in I am asking everyone as a favor to me to do this) you dont have to say why if you already said why, since I read everything everyone already said. I will go first. I want SPI most of all. A reason that I have not already said, is because given all the circumstances going on in this game, SPI will give us more Diplomatic power/leverage than any other trait we can pick. This game will be won by diplomacy, not wonders, REX, chops, espy, commerce, culture or science. AMAZON won last game with a leader that was not FIN, ORG, CRE, EXP or SPI. What won the game was kick ass tactics by General 2metra, supported by rock-solid diplomacy that always put us on top of every dispute, disagreement etc in the game. We were the power brokers in the game, the one civ in the game that no one could mess with, because our military was strong and the treaties wouldn't allow it. That is why I want SPI most of all. In THIS game, it sends a message that we are to be dealt with diplomatically, not militarily and not covertly.
