My typical approach to games is to run representation and caste system if my civ is philosophical early by chopping for pyramid, build a lot of farms, and let computer auto-assign specialists for me. For financial trait, I will build a lot of cottages and eventualy move toward universal suffrage and emancipation. For civs with neither of those traits, I will run representation and following the first approach if I can get the pyramid, otherwise I will follow the second approach. So far, both strategies have allowed me to win games on monarch and emperor. I wonder what are your thoughts on this? Do you favour one approach over the other? Which do you think is superior (1) for space race (2) for domination/conquest?
