    - 43m53s | Theatre
    A religious strategy for CivVI Poland is first up, followed by revising a strategy for the game full-stop stemming from a difference in combat mechanics found in Civilization V (45m39s).

    Regarding Vassal States, a restriction to being released as a vassal could easily be that the master civ must be in a DARK age.

    By "a restriction", I take it you mean one of two or more? If so, what would you see the second and any others being? If, in fact though, the only restriction why so?

    Hope you enjoyed the episode listen. :)

    Don't forget, you can hold down "Alt" while entering ASCII codes on the numpad keys to get your "F"s and "O"s:

    Alt+7, 0 --> "F"
    Alt+1, 0, 2 --> "f"
    Alt+7, 9 --> "O"
    Alt+1, 1, 1 --> "o"

    Good show, as always!
