Twice now I have been playing and then all of a sudden, I get the victory screen. I feel like one of those ladies who doesn't even know she had been pregnant suddenly giving birth. I was playing as Kublai and looking forward to a slog of a domination victory... when suddenly, about turn 160, I got the victory screen. I wasn't going for culture. I didn't know I had any culture. I guess I must have conquered some nice wonders. I realize I am only playing on Emperor, but still. In games where I have gone for culture from turn 1, it takes an epic amount of energy and time to finally win a culture victory. Usually planning wonders and really working toward great people. I did not have a single great artist, writer nor musician. I didn't even have a religion! I have no idea what I did to deserve such a victory. My tourism was like 96. I have had games with tourism of 1000 and still struggling to eke out a victory before someone wins the space race. Crazy.
