@Metaslab Spoiler : I am planning to settle the coastal cities, explore the sea and settle the islands (if there is any). If there is no space to expand, then I will turn to war. Oops, I got a typo. I built academy with great scientist. For HG... I just want to take advantage of stone. Either HG completion or fail gold is fine for me. EDIT: Just found out your edit on HG calculation. That's awesome! I like it! BTW, I play until 1AD. (Emperor, no huts, no events, normal speed) Spoiler : I see someone here failed by Gilgamesh. Indeed, he is the top opponent in my game too. 425BC - convert to Hinduism (2/3 neighbors adopt Hinduism), organized religion. 175BC - hanging garden completion I am done with expansion. Solving economic problem, searching for islands (I highly doubt their existence) at the moment. Built barracks in production cities and walls in vulnerable places. No plan on constituents of army or who to crush.
