    I somehow was able to do this, and was loving it, and then I just stopped being able to.

    Wanted to know what I need to do to be able to buy builders with Faith.
    Can I only do this in a certain era or only in a golden age?

    ^^ it works well if you can get theocracy. saves you money and production you can use on other things.

    Gotcha. So only in a golden age can you do this, no other time?

    Now, does the era matter or not?

    Golden Age: Monumentality is what gives you the ability to do so. Monumentality is no longer an option around 1000 AD (I am not sure of what age it is officially).

    Wow. So ONLY in a Golden Age that starts before 1000 AD can you do this?

    Monumentality is available in Classical, Medieval, and Renaissance. Beyond that it cannot be used. It also gives a 30% discount on faith purchases of civilian units.

    I guess you can still use Monumentality until T160~170?
    Since most games ends before that you shouldn't bother anything about this.

    Under my ruleset https://forums.civfanatics.com/thre...set-for-gathering-storm.647328/#post-15484711 maybe you'll have a few turns to go after global Renaissance era. But being banned from chopping and harvesting so you don't need a lot builders actually. In fact in games of that ruleset, finally a builder only cost ~300 production, which is quite cheap.

    If I am playing Russia I build a ton of workers just to plant trees in the tundra.

    Also some people prefer to play without conquest so the games are not always over before then.

    This only applies to predominantly military games, right?

    To be fair, now that we have proper production, workers built in 2-3 turns are not unheard of. Monumentality is still great if you have good sources of faith avaiable, but other dedications are also very strong.
