I've seen a lot of.. smaller leader threads such as "Best Leader for <fill in later> difficulty/victory/size" This is the jack of all trades thread. My list will be short since I've yet to get -all- of the victories... and I never play on anything short of Marathon. 1. Space Victory: Usually Elizabeth or Catherine. Gotta love that Russian UB 2. Democratic victory: Any leader who isn't Aggressive or Protective. I usually go with Alexander. 3. Cultural: Either of the Egyptian leaders or Saladin. Conquest... I've yet to do. Time? ...Neh. I don't see this as a true form of victory. Sure, I do keep playing till 2050, but I win before that. Now... world domination is tricky. It all depends on how you want to conquer. Hauayauayauelaule Capone is good for tech and wonder leading, so I usually go with him. Sadly, his UU is bad for this form of victory. The best UU for domination, in my opinion, is the Panzer. These are just some of my basic opinions. How about everyone elses? This thread is for leaders. Their traits, their strategies, and those leaders you just hate playing against. Man do I hate playing against Saladin. He's always a different religion than me.. swear he's never muslim, oddly enough.
