We may never build any science-boosting building (no library, observatory, university, monasteries, laboratory, academy, Oxford, etc.) 2. We may never be in Representation (so no science-boosted specialists) 3. We may not build any wonder which gives scientist GPPs (University of Sankore, Great Library, Space Elevator, National Park, Oxford University, Red Cross) 4. We may not build Research 5. We try to avoid using scientists at any point General guideline for victory: Espionage! (see http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=252496) Trading! Out-produce AIs on the final few parts (without space elevator or laboratories, too) Diplomacy to keep the AIs from killing each other until they research all the techs we need to launch Roster: Arathorn -- playing now ZPV Methos Rex Tyrannus Ozbenno Thoughts? No sense exploring with the quecha before making a settling decision.
