Hi, I tend to go for: 1. The Oracle A great early wonder, as it propels you forward technologically. I usually take Metal Casting (see #2). 2. The Colossus Usually have a coastal city in my first 3 or 4. Get a forge and then crank this baby before anyone else can. I great boost to financial stability. 3. The Parthanon I love getting Great People. Accelerate with the Parthanon. 4. The Great Library I love those extra scientists. 5. Hanging Gardens Love that extra health and population 6. University of Sankore Boosts research at just the right time 7. Spiral Miranet Boosts financial late in the game 8. Taj Mahal I usually get this just after I get Military Tradition. Great for cranking out those Cavalry. That's my perfect game. If I get all of these, I'm quite happy. Sometimes I'll go for Stonehenge, but not very often. I don't like trying for the Pyramids. I'd rather find out who got it, and go and wipe them out. Anyway. Thoughts? Cheers.
