I've no doubt that others have already done this, but this is a first for me! Won a Culture victory in a Marathon game and never got into a single war in nearly 5000 years! Emperor, Marathon, Huge, Pangaea, Raging Barbarians, 41 City States Only Victory conditions were Culture and Science Played as Askia/Songhai, last turn scoreboard 2423 AI Opponents: Babylon, 395 Brazil, 1306 Carthage, 1765 Mongolia, 927 Morocco, 1274 The Huns, 1078 The Mayans, 617 Venice, 1178 Last turn: 1890, January I was closing in on a Cultural victory when Carthage took me by surprise by completing the Apollo Project. I pressed on to complete the Internet (+100% Tourism), figuring I could catch her before the Finish Line. At the end she had completed all 3 SS Boosters AND the Hubbell Space Telescope (free spaceship factory, +25% Production of spaceship parts) while I had only gotten the boosters to each 3/4 complete. My overall Production and money was higher, and my Research was running at @3500 beakers per turn, but absent the Cultural victory, it would have been iffy as to which of us would have finished the spaceship first.
