I got gooseberry fool by NN, lost my capital before turn 100, and got sent from top of the leaderboard to the bottom.

I can do a write up from my perspective with screenshots sometime but I wouldn't want to steal Lil's thunder if he's still thinking of doing that.

Not sure if we're continuing though as for one reason or another it didn't end up being a particularly great game and is basically just between me and LFF because I(Sweden) knocked Tamzeh(Indonesia) out pretty early, due to Tamzeh wonderspamming whilst only having a single spearmen to defend his civ and Casp(Arabia) had to make up for his start lacking desert and horses and salt. Then on the other continent it's just LFF(Japan) playing a solo empire builder with his city state friend Spil(Venice). So yeah, not the greatest set of circumstances but i'd definitely be up for trying another game sometime this week/next weekend.

I'm still up for doing that, yeah. Might be best to just upload your respective images to Steam then I can use them from there.

I can safely say I did not lack salt.

New game as in a fresh start? New Civs and all that? Yeah, I think that'd be fine. Will be sure to invest more into a military presence as well. At least fro the last game, I can take solace in the fact that despite having my capital taken from me, I was still the most literate nation in the world.

Neither did I, until the Swedes came.

Lessons learnt, always build an army in multiplayer, especially if you're only 8 tiles away from your nearest neighbour.

Well Casp did warn me that I was going to be attacked. I just...didn't really act on it. War isn't the way I normally play Civ, but that's only against AI.

Not only that, if your capital is 8 tiles away from their capital.

I can completely understand Tamz, I play with Barbarians off on single player and always get infested with the damn things on multiplayer.

Barbarians are a good thing, you can farm them for culture and money with the right social policies

Plus the extra gold from destroying their camps doesn't hurt.

Unlocking it at the cost of a single social policy will get you +33% against barbarians and instant notifications whenever a new camp appears, which not only helps greatly in controlling them and stopping any trade route pillaging but also means that with the culture per kill (also gained by the unlock) you can farm barbarians early on, levelling up your units and gaining back the culture you spent on the policy to begin with.

Military caste is also a great policy - +1 happiness and +2 culture for every garrisoned city is super useful, especially as happiness is hard to come by with few buildings boosting it.

Also Statue of Zeus is great for domination.

Unlocking both Tradition and Liberty for super landgrabbing though. Also, Pyramids is my favourite wonder and I will gooseberry fool invade anyone who steals it from me.

So if there's interest what are people's thoughts on starting a new game next weekend or something? Might be worth switching to Pangea if there's odd numbers again though.

I'd play with you, but BT does not approve of me having friends and playing games with them.
