@dalamb Spoiler : I was equally surprised by the late rush. I found Carthage to be terirbly easy to take early on, before Hannibal gets a hold of archery. Not to mention that it's a nice boost to your empire. Interesting decisions there. But I bet your game was more satisfying than mine. As happy as I am to have my first culture win, it was a pain to handle a large continent full of cities who do nothing but build stuff.
