How did you go in that game? I just finished and won my first game as Catherine. Culture victory for France. I was only on Settler though. And I needed to be as I was still getting used to all the new mechanics in the game. I didn't realise that units have their own transport now. I was like where are the transport ships. lol Overall, I think they've done a lot to make the end game interesting. There's a lot more going on and more challenges.I was going to play as Scythia first but then when I started reading about Gandhi's powerful Religious attributes, I decided to try that first. Already built Petra and the Hanging Gardens in Delhi so it's going well....
just one more turn
I just started a second game as Peter on Chieftain. I completely ignored religion in the first game but I'm paying more interest to it now. Still learning, so I'll see how I go.
I founded the Pantheon Dance of the Aurora, Eastern Orthodoxy and as Russia I'm stuck near the tundra which is a good thing. I'm so addicted. LOL
I'll be keen to try India and China eventually as well but I think France and Russia really suit my playing style.
