    Slavery is a great civic all around... besides I'm convinced you need to whip atleast some warriors in once otherwise you'll hit the happy cap far to easely

    Not just the troll in me. Whipping stonehenge, getting a great prophet, starting a golden age - they all seemed so much more interesting. Build lots of warriors and lots of cottages :sad:

    Self esteem takes a big hit!

    Spoiler :
    1. Set research to meditation.
    2. Set city to produce continuous warriors.
    3. Set governor to emphasize commerce
    4. Set workers to improve nearest city.
    5. Fortify all warriors.
    6. Adopt any religion.
    7. Hit end turn button 93 times.

    Result = 3487, only 18 gold less than my best effort with micro management practically every turn.


    :(

    Can't see how to win these extra turns...
    Spoiler :
    Do we have to grow on more than 4 farms that we then turn into cottages? I've tried that and got zip...
