    I voted for Poly and Oracle on T56 but my 2nd choice would be Oracle via Med on T55

    And we're sure "Choose Religions" is not on, right?

    I voted T56.

    I think researching a religion, priesthood and constructing the Oracle in 10 turns is fast...fast enough FTW.

    I would be happy with any of these choices though.

    I'd say get the oracle ASAP, dforeges are more important than a religion at this stage of the game to us because we don't need the culture and forges make the happiness from religion almost totally irrelevent as we have gems and gold we can hook up.

    I voted T55.

    Why did I do this, even though I think we will get beat?

    a) we'll make some money anyway.
    b) if we make an all-out effort and miss, we'll really have to be the super team we think we are :)

    Actually we won't make any money out of it; both the t56 and t55 scenarios have us researching priesthood EOT t55 and t54 resectively, and building the oracle in 1 turn.

    -

    Memphus, it's good, well optimised, if we go with the t56 plan it's as good as we are going to get whilst hiding out intentions from the other teams. Just checking, but you do know we can get poly on t52? I couldn't get the ortacle til t56 myself when doing that, but you might have better luck than I did getting it to work.

    I thought you would have checked it, just wanted to make sure. I would have hated to have missed a better method.

    I voted t56 - I know we've got enough :) resources that we don't "need" a religion, but getting one will be good for our gold supply (Oracle almost guarantees an early Great Prophet for the Holy City) - and there's also the denial standpoint.

    If it helps, I'd be willing to change my vote to option #2, thus making it 6-4 to go for hinduism.

    Nice thing about that is that if we DO miss oracle, we can still go for stonehenge and get our prophet - we don't need stonehenge, but then, someone will be unhappy ;)

    Well funny is i was going to change to #1.

    we don't need a religion. We can get a later one as we will turn up the heat with all those workers as soon as we have the Oracle.

    I voted T55...

    Reasoning...

    1) We can still get a religion from CoL (and it comes with a free missionary)
    2) I think hiding our intentions will pay off.

    Are we really going to go towards COL any time soon? Also wouldn't it seem likely (or at least possible) that Cavs (whom we are rushing for the Oracle) might take CoL? They don't need another religion but CoL is certainly an option

    If they are going for COL then they need to research writing; how long would it take them to research writing and priesthood, considering they jsut research meditation?

    I usually go CoL because it is the short route to CS. Also, in BtS, CH's are the first significant boost to EP points. Combining the EP points with the maintenance savings now makes CH's more valuable imo.
