    Well, speaking of capuriing cities, in my current Next War game. I named new cities "Cornville" next to corn and "Deer City" next to deer and that Island that is in the Atlantic towards Europe and Africa I named "The Atlantic".

    i also tend to build anything that takes 22 turns until built. that being my favorite number. even if i don't need said thing. there are rare instances like nukes that i will never build.

    I wouldn't build Nuclear Weapons because I am anti Nuke; then when I got to Immortal level I realized that they helped a LOT!

    Whenever I play as the Romans I latinize the names of the cities that I conquer.

    Speaking of language, I really like how all the civilizations use their actual language/accents. Pretty cool. :D

    The silliest thing that I do is assume that whatever my fiance is saying to me is less important than the trade I'm negotiating with Elizabeth. This is often followed by a gentle reminder such as a loss of power to the unit.

    well, I play go-fetch with my dog while playing, doesn't matter if it's a ball or not, just take something and throw it, he'll bring it back and set it down by my chair and whine until I pick it up and throw it again

    Besides getting mad at the RNG for doing things like making me lose my CRIII Maceman when I had 97.5% odds, when I'm playing as the Spanish (which is almost all the time), I sometimes name my cities after their surroundings, but in Spanish. For instance, I once named a city Riocaballo because it was by horses and a river.

    I'm playing on a Terra map and ironicly when I went to settle on the new world I found a nice penninsula with oil off the shore, that was a Tundra hill terrain with some plains and grassland tiles and hills also surrounding it. It was also my first settler on the new world. So I named the city "Plymoth Rock". Looks just the real thing.

    If my initial warrior survives the fog-busting and escort duties, then it get moved to the capital to become my "personal guard" and is never upgraded.

    1) Find a city location with lost of grassland trees.

    2) Nature preserves

    3) National park

    4) Spies. Lots of spies.

    5) Name the city "The Farm" or "Sparrow School" or "MI-6".

    6) surprise your foes with sudden influx of late-game espionage. Sabotage the Manhattan project for bonus points.

    When I loose an important battle... i kicked my dog... JUST KIDDING!!!
    Really though, I'll go on a tirade and talk to my dog's like their my advisors.

    I will name units from time to time, place important markers, etc.

    wolfshanze-
    That's awesome! I mark major battles too, except now it's just the open battlefield battles. If I raze a city I'll marker it, but not if I keep it.

    TyranusBonehead-
    My standard poodle does the same thing to me. If you have a larger dog, they make footballs (american) out of tennis ball material. You can teach them to catch it like a pass and then yell "TOUCHDOWN!" HAHAHA

    That would be telling. This is like one of those heavy breathing phone calls.
