    I don't know if anyone else has had this experience, but I found a major bug/exploit when negociating peace.

    When Japan offered me peace for $90, I demanded all of his cities except for his capital, all of his techs, and that he convert. He did not accept this, of course, and was SUPPOSED to give a counter-offer. The surprising thing is that his counter-offer was EXACTLY the same as what I had demanded. So I got all 5 of his cities and all his techs.

    Try this exploit if you're desperate. I'm sure they'll fix it in the first patch.

    Which button did you click to make it work? Was it the 'What do you need to make this deal work' option?

    Did you get the alert about 'When making peace only one player can offer gifts'? It appears that the AI is putting things on the table, then the game code is saying "you can't add that" but the AI switches into "this is my offer" mode. I didn't try to actually accept the offer because I was trying to figure out the problem, but I think it's the same issue.

    That's the message I got. And if you would have accepted it, you would have gotten whatever you asked for in the first place.

    Apparantly they spent 6 months testing the game making sure it was perfect.

    Too many donuts and too much coffee perhaps? Or maybe they were playing solitare like everyone else in the office...
