    T263 Science Victory

    First time playing GOTM. Went for a three city NC, followed by two more cities for a total of five cities.

    Capital BO :: Scout, Scout, Scout, Monument, Shrine, Worker, Granary, Caravan, Library, Settler, NC, 2 Settlers, HS

    SP: Tradition and Liberty mix, Rationalism, Commerce opener for Big Ben, Order (two Lvl3 tenets 'Iron Curtain' & 'Spaceflight Pioneers')

    Religion: Earth Mother, Tithe, Feed the World, Religious Community, Itinerant Preachers (realized this can be powerful than religious texts in some cases). A lot of russian and netherlands cities got converted giving a lot of gold.

    This was my first game with the latest patch. I felt the initial game was slow, probably because of late 'Legalism' and 'Landed Elite'. Completed NC at around T80. After turn 100 BPT picked up well. Purchased 2 Univ, 5 Public Schools (Skyscrapers policy helped) and 5 Research Labs.

    Generated a lot of Great Scientists. Planted two, burned one for Electricity and used Oxford free tech for Radio. I felt like I did not use GS well in the end. Had to wait for like 5 turns for the last SS tech to finish.

    Surprisingly, I did not get any DOF's and therefore no RA's. In my previous games I was getting quite a few DOF's even in Immortal and Deity. Does this have anything to do with the latest patch?

    - Did you use your Winged Hussars or Ducal Stables?
    Did not use Winged Hussars, but Ducal Stables were useful for a bit more gold

    - Did you use spying to your advantage?

    - Did the map type help or hinder victory and how?
    Map has decent amount of space to expand. Could have gone for more than 5 cities

    - How did the difficulty level affect your game decisions?
    Got lots of wonders: HS, CI, Oracle, SC, Pisa, Taj, Big Ben, PT, Kremlin, Hubble

    - Was Faith helpful to achieve victory? How?
    Tithe helped in getting a lot of gpt mid and late game

    - Did you get Poland to Space?
