Right, I'd forgotten about that. Tachywaxon's thread indicates that a Cautious, Pleased, or Friendly Mansa will always give into a resource demand. http://forums.civfanatics.com/showpost.php?p=11988491&postcount=62 An accepted demand would also initiate a 10 turn peace treaty. The best way to get Mansa Annoyed with the Human master civ before demanding resources? Hrmm Does the player have any nukes? And is Mansa Pleased or Friendly with the last remaining AI? If so, DoWing the last AI and dropping nukes would give -2 diplo for every nuke for "nuking their friend". http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=159814 There isn't enough time to build up -10 "Your Spy was caught causing trouble" on Quick speed. Honestly, I don't see a reasonable way to win this game. A vassal launching a Space Ship on Quick Speed is a worst-case, nightmare scenario. Since it is HoF game, we can't even ask to see the game directly either.
