    Your name: zxcvbob
    Game status: Time Victory
    Game date: 1960AD
    Turns played: 250
    Base score: 2007
    Final score: 2007
    Time played: 8:02:00

    I used 3 chariots and a spearman to capture Custco and Tiwanaku early (Pachacuti is a terrible neighbor) I didn't take Machu because I didn't want everyone to hate me yet. (someone else took it shortly after and razed it; I don't remember who) Then I played peacefully and friendly for a while, spamming wonders and funding an occasional war. One of the first things I built was a shrine, and from that I got the first pantheon. Religion was Desert Folklore, Tithe, Pagodas, Religious Texts, and Guruship. My religion spread like wildfire, and all the gold was quite handy.

    The techs that I prioritized were all early ones: Pottery (shrine), Archery (ToA), Mathematics (HG), and Currency (Petra). I think I took Plastics for my Rationalism finisher, and Satellites from Oxford.

    Social policies were Tradition, Honor (right side), Patronage, Rationalism, Honor (left side), Commerce opener and Wagon Trains.. Ideology was Freedom.

    At the very end I declared war on Polynesia and puppeted all his cities except for Nineveh which I liberated. Everyone except Suleiman and Ashurbanipal hated me, but it didn't matter anymore because I controlled the world congress. Last 4 turns were just click click click to run out the clock. That was enough time I probably should have started another war and taken a few more cities.
