An amazing thing with Civilization is how many different playstyles and goals it can accommodate. So here's one: Peaceful deity science victory - standard size, standard speed, continents - no warmongering. Of course, to achieve this - under any time - and especially fast - you have to be lucky to get a map where you can expand your empire. UPDATE: There are now two series: Rome T157 - This game goes with the culture heavy focus - but, now I can appreciate that the amazing finishing time is probably due to great luck with goody huts, city states and place to expand early on. Without this - the finishing time would probably be in the T160-T170 range . PERICLES T150 - In this game I wasn't nearly as lucky as with Rome - getting only one (1?) goody hut and 2 city states early. I also had to struggle to expand. Originally I wrote: This strategy is heavily inspired with - what seems to be my understanding - of the three theaters approach put forward by Chinese players. Maybe I'm understanding things wrong and maybe it could have been better - if so - please let me know - as I'm always open to learning. Update: It seems that this is not the 3-theatres approach (which is an approach that allows any civ in any conditions to achieve a T170-T200 peaceful deity victory), see posts by @Boyan_Sun for more. This is the Globalisation approach - that is most suitable for Greece. And lucky circumstances also made it doable with Rome. Originally I wrote: Again, I'm not a youtuber - I'm just doing this for people who want to learn and/or see different playstyles and approaches to the game. Throughout I am discussing strategic choices, providing lots of tips and rationale for my decisions so hope you'll find the videos useful. Update: Rise and Fall will bring significant changes to the game mechanics - and it seems now that these changes will make deity fast science victories easier and even more fun. So stay tuned for more videos. In the mean time - these two playlists have a lot of advice and tips if you're up to learning and improving your game. Cheers. Personally, I found this game very fun and enjoyable.
