Been playing CIV since 1990. Hooked ever since... If I got it right I will ned 5x6 SPs to build the Utopia Project for a cultural victory. Given he increased cost per own city & new SP, this seems all but unattainable..? Perhaps playing with just one or two cities would do the trick, but that seems SOOOOO boring! Which leaves just two strategies: going-on-the-rampage forever battling unhappiness or science-maximising with 10 cities and never going to war... Any thoughts, you CIV addicts?
