    What was your luckiest spawn?
    Mine would be when I was the French and Strasbourg which flipped to me has TWENTY axemen in it that all joined me too, I just went ahead and threw them all against the walls of the Roman cities and took them all with ease. I was shocked by how good it was (On a related side note, I think military defeats and deaths should decrease stability).

    Yes, 3000 BC France spawns can be outragious. Germany too, with all those barbs flipping.

    I routinely venture beyond the Great Wall and kill these barbs to avoid them flipping to the Europeans. Free XP too.

    I once started as the Spanish on Emperor, 3000 BC. Rome had built the Great Wall, and I flipped so many units that I had to delete them because I couldn't even pay their upkeep with 0% research.:lol:

    Mine was when I was playing as America. After the first turn, I got the 'greed' quest, for the horses that are near Washington. When the cities on the eastern seaboard flipped to me, as well as completing this quest, Britain & France declared war on me, leaving me with an army of about 15 cavalry units, and another 10 riflemen :D.

    I once tried a 3000 BC as Vikings, and I got about 10 extra units from barbs/Romans/Carthaginians.

    Oh yes :)
    It's amazing how intricate the stability system works once you look into its code. This is something very well thought out.

    I once had a 3000 BC start as Vikings, where a Lulea with Great Lighthouse, Temple of Arthemis AND the Colossus in it flipped to me! No, was just kidding... =)

    I once had a dozen dog soldiers flip to me as America... they are expensive to upgrade.

    Something like that happened to me as Mongolia, China had dozens of units in their northern-most city(Boutou, I think) and had the Great Library, Oracle, and the Confucian(and Taoist) Holy Shrine. I really don't know how they managed it because that city sucks in production(Guess they got lucky with GE's and moved them to Boutou). I thought it was amazing(and stupid, all at once).

    Anyone had wonders flip to them?

    Closest I've come to that is 3000BC games as Arabia - sometimes Baghdad, Parsa, or Niwt-Rst have some awesome stuff in them :D

    I remember someone got a start where the babylonians won a Historical Victory before they even started playing.

    Why is Byzantium purple? Is this the playable Byzantine mod?
