    Well i looked at the screenshots from the expansion pack and i saw the new wonder.
    I haven't got a clue what it is so i ask you, what is it?
    It looks Islamic, but that's just a wild guess..:p

    Apparently the GREAT PYRAMIDS weren't African enough? Not trying to rip on anything, but it's hard to see where this is really that much more wonderful than any number of forts, tee-pees and mud huts around the world. It's not some great feat of engineering. You can look at the Pyramids, Great Wall, etc. and see that clearly these were humungous undertakings. That's why they're called WONDERS.

    maybe they wanted to make a wonder which could only be built by the civilization in last place... thus it had to be a pathetic wonder. Sort of a way of getting a prize for being in last place.

    Errr... you do realize that wonders don't have to be great feats of engineering, correct? The Sankore university was critical in setting up Islam and education in West Africa.

    To the contrary - considering the climate it is built in, it is not only a marvel of its society, and a representation of significant social organization, but it remains an important monument that is continually renewed - can the same be said of the crumbled Pyramids, the burned Great Library of Alexandria, or the abandoned Lighthouse of Pharos (to extend the idea of 'Africa')?

    Yes, all wonders in this game are great feats of engineering, such as the Oracle, Broadway, Hollywood, Rock N Roll...
