Civ CTP is, I am convinced, one of the best games ever. I have become addicted. Totally, rediculously, heroin-like addicted.
I can’t beat the computer. Not even on the easiest level with only three Civs. (I figure I gotta beat the AI before playing against humans.)
Generally, my strategy is to build as many cities as possible as early as possible, macimizing production in each one, and converting to Theocracy as soon as possible. I want to win via the Science route, so I make as many scientists as I can feed and try to get wonders like Forbidden City, Galileo’s Telescope, Gutenburg Bible, etc.
Usually, I’m winning by far in the beginning of the game, but then the other civs start to catch up VERY quickly, and end up being very sneaky, converting cities, sending lawyers, inciting revolutions, and so on.
So, what say you, Dopers? What is the best way to take over the world?
