Noble conquest win, 1580 AD. One of my better scores. More details to follow later Spoiler : OK, this is what I did: Spoiler : Boy, I'm rusty at Civ. Stalin left Moscow undefended, so I walked right in and took it. I followed up by Vulture rushing Rome, killing a Settler in the process. I then turned my attention to Hatty. We had a couple of drawn out wars that both ended in stalemates, so I left her alone to focus on my economy and military. I teched toward Construction for Cats, and Feudalism for Longbows. In the meantime, I bribed Vicky into attacking Toku. I watched as the bulk of her army travelled happily through my territory, only to get slaughtered. I split my forces in half and lined them up on my Eastern and Western borders, with a small invasion force to the south to take care of Hatty if she got frisky. I attacked Japan and took two cities. Toku immediately capitulated. I did the same with Hatty and Darius in very short order, and it was only Vicky and I left. I build a stack of Cats, Knights, and Musketmen (She didn't have Gunpowder yet.), and went shopping for cities. I had to take three from her to get my Conquest win. Thoroughly enjoyable, and one of the better scores that I have had.
