    I guess the theory in building Darwin's is trading shields for technology. Usually, there comes a point where you have plenty of caravans, and you're just waiting for the technology to be discovered. This is a nice feature Darwin's provides.




    Thanks Vik, that was my guess. I wasn't sure since I haven't played an OCC game yet. I'll try OCC next.

    yes, those are nice wonders, but not really helpful for an OCC game. the top-5, in order of importance for this type of game are (in my humble opinion):

    1.) Apollo
    2.) Shakespeare's
    3.) Copernicus
    4.) Colossus
    5.) Isaac Newton's

    Certainly not a necessity, but nice to have. I am always careful about letting the AI get it though -- one time I gave the AI all my knowledge before he built Darwin's. After Darwin's was built, he discovered combustion and then flight. That really hurt me.

    2 advances in a critical time of war can be a big jump. Lets say I've fighting a naval war and I suddenly just get steel, I would have a big advantage over destroyers.

    Anyways, here is the most important wonder ranked in order.

    1. Pyramid

    2. Great Library

    3. Mike's Chapel

    4. Leo's Workshop

    5. J.S. Bach's Catedral

    I just played my first civ games in nearly 6 weeks--steely resolve. Anyways, I decided to let my allies get Darwins, but first I gave them all my science. It paid off good. Fortunately the allies developed two OCC useful advances and not sciences like Amphibious Warfare or Theology.

    OCC Question

    I was reading Paul van den Belt's OCC rules and strategy as well as the OCC Fortnight logs. It seems many players go after Darwin's Voyage.

    Question: Isn't 400 shields too expensive to pay for only two advances? Shouldn't those shields be put to better use?
