When ever I play Mali I make the map hot and lots of hills. I design my game around desert folklore and getting the first golden age. After that there isn't any planning or chess games I have to play to get any victory type. He lets you play turn by turn and make decisions on the spot because you can buy all the things planning would have gotten you. After Mangus lets him not loose pop for buying 10 settlers with faith during that golden age I just pump everything into either buying districts with faith or gold. Then you get to turn production on autopilot and just do city projects. His unique ability makes me design a world around him and play him differently than any other civ would play the game. The money lets me win every disaster event making diplo easy and buy all the districts or great people to tilt any victory I want. Is there any civ you guys have played that give you a very unique feel for playing them.
