    I just have a few left to beat the game with. All of them I find somewhat boring to play... This civs are:

    Ethiopia - Awful colors, bad music, boring UA & UU
    Korea - Same bad colors and music, even more boring UA and UU:s
    Venice - I have probably not played long enough to enjoy the very diffrent playstyle that comes with Venice.
    Japan - The least dull of the remaining ones. I don't know why but I always get stuck, bored and quit my Japan games somewere in the endgame. Got one going with them right now though that I'll probably finish. Huge techlead + autocracy! :crazyeye:

    I have won with all except Zulu, Morocco, Assyria, Sweden, the Celts, and Byzantium. 2000+ hours, and I have never even attempted a scenario.

    All of them, ancient era start on standard maps. There were some that I found very trying and never revisited and others that felt too op and never revisited. I couldn't stand my Brazil game, nothing interesting at the beginning in a super low production jungle start bias, finishing that was the toughest. It got decent later after tourism kicked in but by that point I just wanted it to be over. Spawning musicians during Carnival was pretty cool though. Never saw such powerful musicians.

    The steam list is weird, how come Washington is the most common leader to beat the game with?

    I would suspect that many beginner players choose America first because MURKA.

    Not a bad thing really, America is a great civ to learn the game with. It doesn't ask you to do anything odd like Venice and doesn't give you any crutches like Poland or Babylon.

    Immortal/deity: Poland, Korea, Shoshone, Inca.

    Everything else: Byzantium (90% of my King-Emperor plays... those were the days!), Ethiopia, Celts, Egypt, Mongols, Japan, Babylon.

    So, for 700 hours of play, it is clear that I'm not adventurous.

    My tally (one new civ added to the list following a very quick duel game today):

    Vanilla:

    England
    France
    Greece
    Songhai
    Arabia
    Persia
    India
    Siam
    China
    Iroquois

    DLC:

    Babylon
    Denmark
    Inca
    Korea

    Gods & Kings:

    Austria
    Maya
    Sweden

    Brave New World:

    Assyria (today's victory)
    Indonesia
    Venice

    Scenarios:

    1066: Normandy, Norway
    Wonders of the Ancient World: Hittites

    That's actually more than I'd have expected - I've played a few civs I've never won as due either to not finishing the game or simply not winning, among them America, Germany, Byzantium, Carthage, Morocco, Russia, Shoshone and Spain. Strangely I haven't got the achievement for winning as Ethiopia, though I was fairly sure I had won with them.

    I've only played 1066, Wonders of the Ancient World, Korea, Fall of Rome, the Polynesia scenario (always forget the name) and Conquest Deluxe. I abandoned Korea and Fall of Rome partway through, lost Polynesia and Deluxe, and 1066 is the only scenario I've played more than once.

    I'd have expected Greece to be no. 1, since you get that achievement for beating the tutorial - in fact I think that's still the only game I've played as Greece.

    Strange, Ethiopia and Korea are among my favourite colour palettes in the game! And I like the Korean UUs.

    It took me several attempts to get the Venice achievement, not because I was losing games, but because I just kept giving up it was so tedious and the game so easy. However, having since played OCC with the Maya I wonder if it's just the OCC playstyle that's boring rather than the civ itself. The only civ I've quit in record time due to boredom was Brazil, though I too have quit Japan games due to boredom.

    I've won with every civ at least once. I always go after achievements so this is basically required.

    Well, there are a lot of achievements, and for some you'll often need several tries with a civ. Inspired to go achievement-hunting after my Assyria game this morning, I rolled another and ended up with Persia (I almost always use random leaders) - I'd already won with Persia, but didn't have the Achmaenid to Sassafid achievement so focused on earning that rather than winning (and did, indeed, lose to an Arab culture victory) - and also got Soma Tablets for Everyone in the process.

    What I'm not sure about is why I've never earned the Appian Way, Paul Bunyan and similar achievements - I've played around 900 hours so must have built more than 1,000 roads etc. by now.

    I've got somewhere between 600 and 700 hours. Like most, I've actually won more games than I have the achievement for, but I get bored, especially in domination games when it is really just a matter of time. The full list as to which I have the achievement:

    England
    Polynesia
    Maya
    Russia
    France
    China
    Egypt
    Poland
    Babylon
    Celts
    Hittites
    Confederacy

    I just need to log in and finish Portugal, Shoshone and Venice, all of which I could probably win in another ten turns or so. Portugal is going domination or space, whichever comes first, Shoshone is going space or culture, whichever comes first, and Venice is going domination or diplomatic, whichever comes first.

    Steam Achievements

    I did all my "win as" achievements on King although some where time Victories (most points after turn 500). If I did another achievement on a lower difficulty I went back and won on King.

    Most of my incomplete achievements are scenario achievements.
