I recently found a pretty cool start using Henery the 8th and the Korean Civ (henery is IND/SCI where as the koreans have a UU cataput and UU university). the point of this strat is to have one city with evey religions capitol in one city (except islam which come much too late to be relevant) use the above civ/leader combo and bee line(the tech that gives stone henge wich is to buillt after the first warrior-then kemetism - then hinduism - priesthood- dualism(or zoroastrianism)-then mining(either build a worker or enslave on so that you have a mine or 2 to help build the oracle)-then writing(make sure to complete writng b4 you complete the oracle this will give you access to alphabet!!!!) usually another civ will get writing first... thats fine trade with them to get agriculture and the wheel (if goody huts didnt help yo out). once you have writng your first priority is hunting and archerty for trade. to continue .... develope masonry next this could potentially give you stone or marble or both!!!! (combined with IND trait!!!) now you can get monotheism (now you have 4 religions in one city) also make sure to switch to prophet and hinduism as soon as possible.As this will generate a couple of great prophets that you can use to build the seat of hinduism(i say hinduism cause i like the extra 25% XP for my generals) and save the other to light bulb theology. next pick up literature because the comp rarley goes for buhdaism then Confusiamism-then buhdaism then pop theology. now you can grab philosophy for an amasing 8 religions in one city!!!!!. make sure to keep enough units to defend throughout... and as soon as you get alphabet from the oracle build science (this + your scientific trait should ensure you get the nessecary techs/reliogions first. if possible build the silk road in you city as soon as you get these relions either take one city or settle one city this is where you will build king richards crusade. after some heavy trading (i use no tech brokering and this still works) you are now in a position to get siege warfare and papacy and intolerance(which allows you to build the crusade). switch to christianity to get the crusade but as soon as you build it switch back to hinduism. you can now build the apostolic palace + sige weapons workshop you can see now that you have crusaders(+125% XP) and catapults (remember that Korea's UU is the catapult) you can build a force that will take any city for the next thousand years) (this is how you make for not expanding early. your economy will never get behind due to haveing 8 religions in one city ( the majority of your GP will be prophets which will build the holy temples) + your hachawa(catapults) and crusaders will be invincible for a LONG time. if you were able to build the crusades and apastolic palace in a second city you may also be able to build the great library in this city (also possibly plato's academy !!!!!! ) IF you were able to make sence of this ... and did what i told you ..... from this point on you will NEVER have to look back while cruising to an UNDISPUTED victory. please post any questions and i will elaborate. MY CUSTOM GAME: random personalities-mixed leaders-(reload random seed-for the crappy battles)-no tech brokering+all the default including REVDCM(if you are playing 2.92) feedback would be fun (BTW) my all time favorite leader/civ combo is still roosevelt of the abbysinians!!!!!!!!!!
