    Is this thread for how good the wonder is when you get it, or how often it is useful?

    Statue of Liberty - 33- Gives you a TON of production!
    Stonehenge - 12
    Temple of Artemis - 11- Really way too early for building wonders!

    Hanging Gardens - 12 - 3 = 9 - +6 food is nice, but Temple of Artemis is better in 99,9% of situations, also it requires Tradition which I personally don't really like.
    Leaning Tower of Pisa - 35
    Machu Picchu - 21 + 1 = 22 - Yes needing a mountain is less than ideal but you want to settle near mountains anyway and it also means that AIs won't build it asap(or at all), and in wide empires which I prefer it will give ridiculous amounts of gold.

    Temple of Artemis - 11+1=12 a good boost to city growth, now Petra, Stonehenge, and Temple of Arty are tied :), they all are decent wonders, but which shall be eliminated first?

    Notre Dame: 10 happiness is actually a big deal when this wonder comes out. Happiness has always been my main issue in the game.

    Neushwanstein: Happiness and culture boosts are always welcome, but it requires players to build castles. I never build any them and it wastes some time to build castles in cities. Also it has mountain restriction.

    Eiffel Tower - 37 - 3 = 34. No reason to build this if you are not going for cultural victory (or trying to prevent someone else's cultural victory). Does not provide enough happiness or culture to make a difference at that stage of the game.

    +1 to Petra. It's just a badass wonder. In most desert cities it's going to contribute much, much more Food than the Hanging Gardens, and it'll always bring Production too.
    Add to it a free Trade Route (Caravan, but you can sell it to get a Cargo Ship) which itself can add as much food as Hanging Gardens later on. And to top that off, it grants some nice Culture with Archeology. Soo... why is this thing so low?

    I'll blame the Petra-hating illuminati for this.

    -3 to Stonehenge. I just think it's the worst on the list, that's it.

    Colossus - 26 - 3 = 23. Really unknow for me. Need a coastal city, thing rarer than mountain in my quest for 5 turns to plant my capital. I used to play random maps, and never thought to priorize Colossus. Stonehedge, Petra, Hanging gardens, ToA, but Colossus :confused:. Thanks for advice about Colossus.

    Hanging Gardens - 8

    Machu Picchu - 22 + 1 = 23. Money, Money, Money. I priorize it when I have mountains near my capital or my second city. I need a mountain, but it's mean I'll have observatory. It's really powerful as far your capital going to grow and grow.

    HG extra food is great. Artemis is not available in BNW so I am kicking it in the teeth. Maybe that's unfair but I only play BNW!

    +1 ToA - Great wonder for both Tall or Wide. Getting it can be a challenge if you spawn in tight quarters with another Civ or two.

    -3 Forbidden Palace - Not really that useful, the two votes are nice for in that era, but equate to only a single city state come the late game. If you are good at exploration you can typically just get the free delegates from founding the WC.

    Sorry, but what kind of reasoning is this? ToA extra food is even greater than HG and it does exist in BNW (Wonders of the Ancient World DLC).

    Forbidden Palace - 3 : You don't need it to win a diplomatic victory. Happinness is useful but far from Taj Mahal. No Great person point.

    Machu Picchu + 1 : Money. Quite easy to build against AI. You just need a mountain. Useful in tall or wide empire.

    Oracle - 23 + 1 = 24. It's really hard to have a decent culture without it. Scientific point help a lot.
    Petra -12 - 3 = 9. I drop 2 for 3 games when I build it. The last is a runaway game, but the 2 others I manage to rush Petra in the wrong way. No NC, only capital. A powerful city, indeed. But no left room for other cities, and neighboors AI are too powerful to conquer one of his cities (and usually it build Great Wall). This wonder is a trap for me.
