    Well, Turn 50. The incessant barbarians and flooding have definitely hindered my progress. Just finishing up my 2nd settler. Lack of production in the starting location forced me to move towards the sheep to have any really.

          looks like you've got a little better RNG than I did with the flood. I tend to prefer to settle on top of luxuries, as the AI will pay handsomely for them in the early game.[

            eventually, you can Emcee multiplayer games and provide color commentary on them.

                i went desert pantheon, becuase THERE'S SO MUCH DESERT.

                Also aiming for a Petra in Aquileia

                also, i might crush yeveran, despite my usual 'don't kill city states' vibe.

                  Turn 100. Finished off Barbs, held off a surprise war with Greece, and captured a city state. England is next. Settled next to natural wonder that gives me 2 Great General and Merchant points every turn. Sun Tzu helped the offensive while my Great Merchant will get me my first copy of Gypsum.

                    So, i stole a settler from England, and eventually got them to agree to a peace. I spent a lot of my time trying to consolidate everything. suuuper going out on a limb with trying to snipe Petra in puteoi, but that's the rub.

                    I did manage to snag Work Ethic, which makes my holy sites super nice for production as well.

                      Turn 151. England is no more, and 3 cities captured from Greece. Have the most science per turn, and snagged a golden age on turn 149 with monumentality. I have enough Faith for 2 more settlers. Just getting Musketmen and Knights.

                        Turn 200 and Joan of Arc led my Musketmen to victory over the Greeks, and into the flanks of the Koreans. Time to upgrade the army to Infantry and 2 star. Golden Age was very beneficial as I was able to fill the gaps in my territory with 2 settlers, cap my number of Traders, and buy some builders. Capitol is building Wonders that others ignored, Jebal Berkal in 4 turns not bad production value.

                          I'm a little bit behind. Felt a little run down yesterday and couldn't focus on playing the turns.

                            I forgot to post my turn 250 on Friday. Infantry and Artillery are tearing through Korea, with no signs that they will stop. I have found my first uranium, so GDRs are next on the menu.

                              Turn 300 today. Winning has been inevitable for some time, but at this point I am 8 turns from landing on the moon, I have captured 5 Capitals, and am the lead in both Culture and Diplomacy. Now that I have my first GDR, 2 more capitals are my goal. Shouldn't be too difficult, as Kupe has only 1 city left, and the other 2 civs are in the industrial era while I am in the future era. I will also be beginning the Atomic era with a golden age.
