After losing 4 cities and enough units, Stalin capitulates.
First GG was used to upgrade a bunch of trebs to CR2 (lost 3 of those on St Petersburg)
The good thing about shokonus is they attack AND defend pretty well.
Casualties on our side (9 units) Stalin lost about 40.
Cheap war overall, we did not have to whip much (one round of Chokos, 2 rounds of Trebs)
We focused on growth, wealth and cottages a la sampsa
in the meantime.
Research Fishing, Sailing, Priesthood, Meditation
Trade for Calendar, Monarchy and Feudalism
Get Philosophy by Stalin (through the peace treaty).
Moscow has Pyramids, Scotland Yard, TGW and TGL
St Petersburg has Parthenon. What's not to love?
Victoria took a city from Liz but is now in a stalemate.
We still have some unused zebras and buffaloes and Washington is near...
But we also have high research power incoming, GS points are stored in a couple of cities and we are ready to trigger a golden age (with Music GA) and do some serious civic switching (rep/bureau/caste/paci ...)
Stalin could be switched to Judaism if it mattered.
Judaism holy city is very close (spanish land) but does not have a shrine. (Isabella shrined the Christian HC instead...Because it was closer?)
Any suggestion on the march forward?
Just go Cuir ?
Edit: i've never used a Scotland Yard before... Should I put a jail now in Moscow or something ?
