    That's more man-power than what the Mongols amass in my games.

    Wait if Germany is around... That means that China, Arabia, Egypt, Ethiopia, Babylon, and India are all gone?

    The mongols are going to have a lot of tribes flip to them when they spawn.

    This is the first time I saw this excuse for refusing to give me a tech:


    Guess why. "We have our reasons", they say, but what might be their reason?

    ''We have our reasons''? :lol:

    Never seen that before either. Does it mean they're about to declare war on you?

    I think it is because you have gathered all research points needed to discover the tech. Sometimes, it is possible in RFC to have spent more research in the tech than it's worth. That would be my guess that Bismarck refused to trade it, because the trade has a negative value.

    It usually means that they are building a wonder that require the tech they refuse to trade.

    I'm one step away from getting Fascism. That might be their reason.

    They don't want you to build Mount Rushmore before they do.

    I think that's the famed cook event who discovers a new source of spice. I've gotten it maybe 3-4 times.

    It's relatively common with a weight of 50 (other more common ones are 80/100). I've NEVER gotten the free great artist event (weight 20).

    Event25
    Spicy
    Prereq: Forest tile under your control AND CALENDAR AND 4 or less happy resources AND no spices
    Obsolete: None
    Active/Weight: 50/100
    Result:
    1.The tile gains Spices
    2.You pay 20 gold, the tile gains Spices, the Forest is removed and a road and plantation is build

    Speaking of events I've never gotten, here's one that will surely help a lot:
