T 291 Culture Win Tried the Brazil map multiple times and just could not get a culture victory. Decided to give this one a shot. Would have been done 20 turns sooner but Ramesses (who was the culture leader) must have sensed what was coming as he suddenly decided to declare war just as I was about to faith purchase the musicians. Since neither of us had a foothold on the other continent I had to sick the Celts and Inca on him. Eventually he sued for peace. Missed the International Games vote (came in second--too much production from the Inca even with me bribing him into four wars) but did have the net so after a few concert tours it was four more turns to overwhelm his culture. Danes also DoWed after the Egyptians so I had to build a military. Modern armor wrecked him. Allowed me to bring Liz back in the game. Felt bad for her as I had bribed the Danes into attacking her early in the game. RNG in this game is a bit annoying. Had tried four or five openings to grab Petra--was always gone no later than turn 70. This time I decide to forego Petra and just open with a normal start and it does not go until after turn 90.
