    Oooo, unique building!

    Glad they are weighed towards more than one victory type, too. Not a one-trick pony, unlike Macedonia.

    Seems like another well-designed civ.

    No joke, that auto-theming ability is serious stuff. Its like a british museum turn up to 11!
    Unique GP building synergizes great too.
    Carolean - great. I love the unique bonus they have. These guys will be monsters. Stack with logistics for fending off scheming Norwegians and Danes!
    Open Air museum- very novel mechanic. And I thought they'd run out of these one-per-city UIs!

    LOVE the Nobel prize mechanic!! Brilliantly done, FXS

    Historically, she was taught as a male heir and liked to dress somewhat like a man.

    Strange she gets bonuses towards filling Great Work Slots, but no bonuses towards Great WAM's

    Another culture civ? Nope, sorry, I'll stick with korea & scythia. But the library & character model is nice. Sweden is just not sciency enough.

    So the LUB is the first unique that you can actually be completely locked out of? Interesting, I imagine why the concept is used only for the second unique.

    Seems like a civilization designed to go very wide as its unique improvement is great for wide play and its other bonuses is also very much pro wide play.

    Bonus for each type of terrain a swedish city is settled on? That just seems random to me, can't see the logic behind that. Also, wth. is an open air museum? :confused:

    Surprise.
    Everyone expected science focus civ. We received culture powerhouse with very strong LA. Automatically themed culture buildings are very, very strong.
    And that... UI

    I need some time to digest this, but my initial impression is relatively positive. This is a diplomatic and cultural civ, so it might suit me.

    So we didn't get IKEA as a unique Shopping Mall replacement. :p

    I'm trying to decide how I feel about this design.

    First: Kristina's model is great.

    Second: The Carolean looks amazing, and I'm thinking will be a very useful and powerful anticav unit.

    That Queen's Bibliotheque is a must build for a cultural Sweden. It's really good! I feel less good about the Open Air Museum, but it's not something I greatly dislike. However, it's a decent cultural improvement, and bonus loyalty is always good.

    Automatic themeing is nice since going on a theme hunt is pretty difficult sometimes.

    The Nobel Prize is something that I feel like will need some more explanation. Sure, the extra GP points are nice for those two districs, and diplomatic favor from great people means this is a real threat of a diplomatic civ, but will the Nobel Prize be too advantageous for other civs in the game? Does it help Sweden at all? I'm curious to see on the stream, because I feel like there needs to be more context for me to be more excited about this one.

    If nothing else, that was probably the point this time.

    Yes, love the Nobel Prize UA. I’m digging her and will play her third probably. And will have her in most of my games I don’t choose random civs.

    I should say that I was disappointed to see that English "British Museum" will be replaced, as I really enjoy the ability. Luckily, with Minerva of the North giving me something similar to British Museum, I think I can safely proclaim that Sweden will be among my favourite Civs to play.
