    Ok, I played the first introductory conquest scenario where you got points for(what I thought) when you settled near the "relic" locations, however, I always saw the computer just fortify a unit near these locations. Do you score points for simply having a unit by these relic locations or must you own the area with your culture to get any? And if so, why does the computer put a unit by each one? I was so close to winning this scenario but I lost to the egyptians by a couple hundred points with only 4 turns left. :(

    I apologize if this has been brought up before.

    You get Victory points for every turn you have a military unit on the tile with the Victory location, it doesn't matter if its within your cultural boundaries or not.

    In the Ancient Treasure Introductory Conquest you get 80 points per turn for that, a lot, so make sure you get as many of them covered as quickly as you can. You also get Victory points for defeating other units, capturing enemy cities, building Wonders and for each tech advance.

    Better luck for next time :)

    If I recall correctly, in order to score VP for those locations, you must fortify a unit in the tile with the marker. However, I believe you can simply station a unit in the location if it happens to be in a marsh or jungle tile.
