    Kristina's character model looks really great, and it's an interesting civ design. I had no idea open-air museums originated in Scandinavia, so that's a nice thing to learn.

    I saw a lot of people wondering if the unique governor was going to be Oxenstierna, but now it seems all but certain it will be the Ottoman ability (Hurrem Sultan?).

    Oh this looks really good! I think I like everything with this design. :)

    Can't wait to charge someone with a Carolean while having a great general and the logistics policy enabled! BRING IT!

    Swedens advantage to nobel prices come down it fits Swedens playstyle and abilities, so while it can help others, Sweden is at a good position to win them.

    Like Sweden get more diplomatic favor than the average civ due to its abilities which make it easier to get the Peace price and competitors can be eliminated if needed.

    Sweden playstyle seems to be to play aggressivly and expand because you only get one open-air museum per city and it is buffed for each terrain type you Control. Otherwise simply spam campuses and such to get great people which also give you favor and also make sure to Control all the artifacts so you can use the leader ability.

    Pre-Sweden: “Geez, I generate too many Great Writers and Artists, I have nowhere to place their works!”

    Post-Sweden: “Why only slots, without more GWAM generation?”

    I am looking forward to play this with Kongo, Russia, China, Maori, and Greece as enemies.

    I sure hope they do some reworking for some of the legacy civs (America and England particularly) because these new civs are really interesting. The originals are getting more and more dull.

    Will everybody be able to theme wonders? Also the 44 culture and 60 tourism from the Bibliotheque is insane :)

    Or the other Barbarossa, since there isn't a real naval/maritime oriented governor yet.

    I thought they’d get a unique govt district but I think this is even more creative.

    Noble Prize world congress: It begins at Industrial, which the game never last that long.
    UU: Too late.
    UB: I prefer the Grandmaster's Chapel, or Intelligence Agency.
    May be somehow useful for culture victory only, when it is filled it is automatically themed(Wait, you need 3 GPs to theme it!)
    +50 Favor for each GP: May be Useful
    Automatic Theme: May be Useful. An art museum with 1 artist gives 5/4 initially, but 18/12 now?
    But only for art museums. (archolegical ones are easily themed, but still a bonus) The problem is that few people build art museum, and Swedish art museum do not yield more than a normal themed archolegical museum. Just faster for a few turns when you already have a great artist.

    +1 GP point for University/Factory. A bonused University is great. Although GP points don't play an important role in Rise and Fall due to those 2.56x things.

    UI adds 10 culture and 10 tourism per city when Sweden have cities settled in all types of terrains? This may be the main power of Sweden. 10 is not a small number. When is it unlocked?

    Very cool Civ. Nice subtle incentive to settle other continents. The Nobel Prize competitions is a very fun idea - I'm not sure it gives Sweden any real benefit, it just very very fun. And then the rest of the Nobel Prize ability is very good.

    I'm a bit over the "UI but you can only build one per city mechanic". But there you go.

    Still. Just very cool.

    I like it though I'm not a big fan of anti cav in general. This one looks like a defensive powerhouse, too bad cavalry can just move around it of course.

    Lol, probably better than Kongo and Russia then.

    Guess the unique governor is the Ottoman's

    They said they wanted players to play the map in Gathering Storm. And with Sweden where you'll want to settle on all 5 differents sort of terrains, we can say they nailed it.

    Historically, it should be unlocked in industrial era, but hopefully it comes earlier in civ.

    Someone posted a picture showing that they do receive GWAM points in their UB.
