    Wang Kon was commercial and scientific. Emperor Montezuma was religious and militaristic. What are your traits?

    This is a cool little quiz I decided to make up when I was bored one day, and I feel like sharing it with you. Basically, it works to determine your civilization playing abilities with your two greatest focuses, which are discovered by answering several questions about how you play the game. I'm not going to post how to score this particular quiz until I see a bunch of people answering it, and even then I might just e-mail the people to tell them their score. Hopefully, this becomes popular and I can have a lot of fun with it...

    Anyway, here comes the test of time!... but mainly, the test of traits!

    1. Let's say you played a game where you started with no techs. Which of the following would you research first?
    F) Pottery
    C) Cerimonial Burial
    I guess I build a few granaries before I build temples, but its close.

    2. When you meet your first other civilization, the first thing you do is...
    B) Try to trade techs with them if possible.
    Most of the other choises comes a bit later in the game.

    3. What unit would you most likely build the most of during the ancient age?
    B) Settlers
    A) Swordsmen (includes civ-specific swordsmen like legions)
    Those two are close. I try to build the great library so I don't need libraries.

    4. During a war, if you happen to capture an enemy city over 3 pop, what do you find yourself doing most often?
    D) Leaving a garrison and continuing onward.
    B) Keeping the city and rushing an improvement to keep the area cultured and happy.
    C) Building roads to the area if possible to connect it to a luxury source, in hopes of changing the mood of the newly captured people.
    D, B and C in that order.

    5. What is your favorite government type in the ancient age?
    C) Monarchy
    Because I usually still need military police to keep my citizens content (lack of cathedral/luxuries).

    6. What is your favorite government in the industrial age?
    A) Democracy
    No contest

    7. What is your favorite government, period?
    A) Democracy
    It's not difficult to wage effective wars under democracy.

    8. Out of the following, what wonder would you consider the most valuble?
    A) The Great Library
    Lets me catch up in techs and gain 5000+ gold at the same time.

    9. You usually get your golden age...
    A) With a unique unit win.

    10. In your opinion, what is the most valuble thing to have in Civilization?
    B) A large amount of land.
    This is what is needed to gain all the others.

    11. What's the most valuble resource out of the following(assuming there were no unique units that allowed you to ignore the resource needed)?
    A) Iron
    With swordmen I can take horses from another civ. With knights I can take saltpeter, etc.

    12. What city specialist do you create the most?
    C) Tax Collector
    If there is one unhappy citizen he becomes a tax collector

    13. What tech do you research first in the middle ages?
    None, I either get them through the great library or by buying them.

    14. What tech do you research first in the industrial age?
    B) Steam Power
    No contest. The one-more-turn syndrome is usually strongest when I'm close to putting railroads everywhere and thus massively improving my land.

    15. What tech do you research first in the modern age?
    D) Computers

    16. In wars, you are usually...
    A) The aggressor (the person declaring war)
    I give in to demands if I don't want to make war.

    17. How do you usually aquire luxuries?
    D) Build cities to them.
    C) Trade for them.
    B) Going to war with another civilization for them.
    Usually in that order (colonies sucks).

    18. When you are confronted with a large amount of jungle, you...
    C) Clear it out right away.
    Those cities can become great cities after a while.

    19. When first laying down a city, your first priority is usually to...
    A) Build an improvement for it.
    C) Build a defense unit for it.
    D) Get it started in building another settler.
    All three, but with different cities. I usually have two-three settler producers, a few other unit producers, but like to build temples in all the outer cities.

    20. During peace negotiations, you find yourself primarily demanding the enemy for...
    C) Techs.
    A) Gold.
    Techs early on, but then gold.

    21. When fighting an enemy, what do you feel is the greatest stregnth out of the following?
    A) Great offense.
    If you can easily beat the opponent, then there's not much to worry about.

    Fast growth is everything early on.

    I'm alway the cultural leader by the industrial age, even on emperor.

    19) C
    20) A
    21) C - That is, if under mobilization is understood the ability for your armies to reach different locations as fast as possible, not the ability to mobilize as acquired with nationalism, then it would be A.
    22) B
    23) B
    24) A
    25) D

    Nice quiz! Have to say that with some questions I actually wanted to give double answers, for example obtaining luxuries early on usually happens through city-building (2-3 luxuries hopefully) and the others later via trading, so I chose trading as the best possible answer.

    Whoa, you must have been really bored! Don't worry, I am to; I plan wars in the shower...

    1) Pottery. I love Granaries. Although, if I was in a very fertile start, it would be Bronze Working, and it would be Bronze working if I was in a tiny island as well.

    2) Trade techs. I must get up to date, ten I usually go for a wonder or plan for war. Actually, I usually go for a wonder and plan for war simultaneously, like I'm doing right now.

    3) Swordsmen. Just thinking in sheer numbers, I would have the most swordsmen, with workers and settlers about even.

    4) Raze it or keep in and rush improvement. I'd raze it depending on the location, proximity to capital, etc. I don't have contingency plans in this area, I make them up on the fly.

    5) Monarchy. It used to be republic, but now that I've moved up to higher levels where early war is a must, Monarchy.

    6) Democracy. I hate Communism, its Monarchy if I'm at war.

    7) Monarchy or Democracy. Despite what people say, I notice the value in Democracy: it usually has a higher gpt than Republic, and as long as you plan right for wars, you can go to war in it. Just have alot of lux and keep that war quick. But I usually go Monarchy for most of the game; I won't switch to Democracy ASAP, I'll wait until I think most of my warring is over.

    8) The Great Library, of course! Who can't like free techs until the mid-Middle Ages? Thats no researching for practically an entire age, all time to rake in money and build that army...

    Of course, the UN is important as well, but only if the game lasts that long. Usually most of my enemies are out of the way by then, or really small, so they have no chance to bulid the UN, so I can build it at leisure.

    9) Unique Unit, unless I accidentally trigger it with a wonder. A UU is a guarenteed GA anyway, a wonder is only a cance, IIRC.

    10) The most valuable thing is being ahead of the pack in strategic techs. If you have a unit more powerful then they do, you can get away with having a smaller army. If you get a wonder before they even get the tech, you'll soon have a large culture. Techs make the game, IMO.

    11) Iron. Iron is needed for just about every offensive unit for two and half ages, every defensive unit for two and a half ages. Iron is needed for EVERYTHING. If you don't get it by the end of the Ancient Age...

    12) Scientist. While I'll create at most one or two entertainers in a city, when my cities get over size 21, its mostly scientists.

    13) Monotheism. It gets you Pikemen, Medeival Infantry (in PTW), and is 1/3 of the way to knights.

    14) Steam Power, then Nationalism. They are all VERY important, but Steam Power gets you rails, and rails are necessary for every empire.

    15) Does Fission get you the UN? (Sorry, I never remember the Modern techs ;)) If so, then I always get that. Get it before they do.

    16) The Agressor. I usually declare war, and even when they declare war on me, I bring it into their homeland. The Agressor...what a name! Sounds like a wrestling stage name... ;) :lol:

    17) Build cities. I'm very stringent about getting luxeries early, although some might *happen* to fall into my hands during a defensive war...:mischief:

    18) Build cities in it, then send a pack of workers to clear it. I hate jungle. Jungle is...ugly in the regular graphic (which is why I play Snoopy's, so I don't hate it as much ;)), it kills your citizens and units, ruins your cities...:mad:

    19) Defense unit, then either settler (if its early), worker (if I need one), or improvement (temple or granary or barracks).

    20) Techs, techs, techs!

    21) Great offense. Offense always beats defense, and offense always beats offense. (A twist on the old phrase). He who has the best offense always wins. Whether its an attack or a counter-attack, offense wins. :D

    22) A settler or a tech, depending on which I need the most.

    23) I think around 500 for my outer cities, 1000 for my core, although I can't remember.

    24) Improvement, maybe an army here and there.

    25) Domination, Conquest, or Culture.

    I am asking what you do the most often for most of the questions. Only answer once and don't put down multiple answers. For example, if you are debating for what to put as your favorite ancient government, and you usually go with whatever government you get first, put down the government you usually get first, or the government you would prefer if given the choice.

    I'll finish the scoring system and scoring the people that have posted so far later on today, ut I haven't started yet, so if you want to post a filled out quiz, feel free to do so now before I get started.

    "12. What city specialist do you create the most?
    C) Tax Collector
    If there is one unhappy citizen he becomes a tax collector"

    Any IRS agents reading this?:lol:

    I haven't finished my game yet (almost up to modern age), so I'll have to hold off on answering for now.
