    Oracling Education... That's something only lymond has done so far, assuming that he did talked of Deity when writing that.

    Paper is amazing, because it needs a Prophet from Stonehenge. Getting Stonehenge + Oracle in 1 game, while not sacrificing expansion totally is already something really rare. You even had No Huts on as I assume.

    No there has been several players who have Oracled Education via CS path in BTS and I have done in a BOTM for a space game. It was in a Prince or Monarch game on a Great Plains Map with I think Darius. Can not remember details very clearly.

    I think I usually get Metal Casting when I build the Oracle now, given the old slingshots have been broken. I've been wracking my brain for a couple days trying to think if there were any exceptions to this and I cannot think of one.

    @ Htadus: Read again plz, I was assuming Deity ;) .

    Pulling of Oracle -> Education on Settler is something I can also pull of in my sleep, so it was an indirect question to lymond on which difficulty he did that.

    I don't know if Oracle -> Education of Prince and Monarch is something special on Prince or Monarch, it's probably best grab for a longer time (like Civil Service on Deity) , because it's simply a very expensive tech, am I right?

    I just got Construction from the Oracle in my current Nobles' Club game. Nothing spectacular but still good for me.
