I want to try my first Venice game. But I'm not sure what VC I should go for; Venice seems pretty handicapped for all of them. Science is pretty much out, given their inability to annex and found cities, and the fact that they can only build spaceship parts in the capital. Culture seems tough given that you really only have one good city (ie: Venice) and you can't purchase archaeologists in your puppets. Diplo seems like a natural strategy for Venice, but doesn't that strategy run completely counter to puppeting city-states? I suppose domination, counter-intuitively enough, is their natural victory strategy - but it's hard to maintain those uber-profitable trade-routes when you're at war with everybody. For those who have beaten the game with Venice (on Emperor-level or higher, preferably), what do you recommend?
