Most of us don't have the game yet, but that shouldn't stop us from obsessing about how we're going to play once we do. So post ideas about what order to research techs, with what traits, going for what kind of win, etc. My first idea was to play as India and try to grab as many early religions as you can. Meditation is cheap, and you should be able to snag it without difficulty. Or you could take Polytheism first, then go Masonry > Monotheism. Or you could do Meditation > Polytheism > Masonry > Monotheism, which is rather risky if someone beats you to Polytheism. But if it works, you control all the early religions, which should be quite useful.
