Spoiler : click here for spoilers edit: scroll down for screen shots. i would welcome ideas on how to win this game. edit: pericles/immortal/standard/epic/shuffle- though probably continents. i had been planning to bulb up to liberalism with an aim at astronomy, but the RNG didn't want to cooperate. now instead, i have a GPro and GEng with which i could use to build the dai miao and sistine chapel and maybe make my first early cultural victory. edit: i have conquered stalin completely and isabella's former heartland. she has lately researched longbows, making further conquest perilous, wrt my current research capacity. i need metal casting and machinery for maces, she has xbows and is researching civil service. the reason that i was able to win my wars with her up to this point is that the ai is too stupid to repair its plundered iron mines. i feel as though my civ were in need of some respite, though i would surely lose the advantage to the technologically superior isabella. thanks. let me know if this opens.
