Hi Everyone! So I confess to getting a real thrill out of playing Civ in a really nerdy way. It started with Civ4 and the idea was always to try and take over every square in the world through culture without ever firing a shot in anger except at barbarians. I had to play on Prince level approximately or it won’t work but sad to say I never quite accomplished my goal in Civ 4 even though I often got 99.9% of the squares there were always some I just couldn’t put pressure on. Then came Civ6 and the culture thing worked completely differently and so this nerdy approach wasn’t possible - or was it.....? I am just playing a game on GS as Eleanor (French version) on Prince level, all settings standard and Pangea (specifically chosen). I wanted to see how much of the globe I could conquer without firing a shot. I aimed for a culture victory and specifically put great works into border cities to increase loyalty pressure. Everything went well and I won a culture victory about turn 230 (would have been earlier but remember I wasn’t putting great works into big cities unless they were border ones). I was far from over, however...... Once I could choose any rock band promotion then I found I could take out the capitals much easier than smaller cities as they had more venues. It was even good if I lost the first band or two as I could take the capital in one turn that way and then exert huge pressure on the other cities. I reckoned that I might get two thirds of the globe under my sway. It is currently turn 353 and I have the whole globe except for 7 City States (one is about to flip to me) and ONE solitary Indian city! But I have a problem. The Indian city is at the end of an archipelago and I can’t get loyalty pressure on it. Worse still, there is a City State between my nearest city and it. So I am stymied. I thought spies but it seems that you can only do one “forment unrest” mission at a time and between missions loyalty will be back up to 100%! Ideas? I thought Rock Bands, but there are no suitable venues and frankly I don’t understand why some bands can play in some places and not others. Can someone explain this to me as the Civilopedia is rather vague on this? So anyway, Madurai the last city, has a campus and am I reduced to playing 147 more turns hoping they make it a venue that I can play? One last bloody city remains between me and a Civ goal I have been pursuing for a decade. Any ideas?
