After a random Civ V video popped up in my Youtube feed, I figured a quick game couldn’t hurt. Only, I suck at strategy games and got it into my head to finally beat king difficulty, so one quick game became almost two weeks of “quick” games. Then I decided to see how well the Ai worked in a team.
Then I decided to see how well the AI worked in a team. Ended up with Caesar to my right, Washington above, Isabella to my left, and two other civs that didn’t make to the end of the game. Washington and Caesar were on my team, which turned out to be both a blessing and a curse as Washington started bullying city-states by turn ten and Ceasar waged war after war on the other two AIs. As a result, I spent most of the game at war with Isabella, but at least, Washington sent troops every time.
At some point Isabella captured a city, I’d founded on accident and which was tanking my happiness. Washington returned it to me a few turns later. So, I gave it to him, almost cutting myself off completely from Isabella.Hey, that was his war after all.
Around this time, someone built the UN– an unachievable victory condition, because all the City states belonged to either Isabella or Washington and two AIs were gone. So, good job whoever tried to go for that. When the time for voting came, the victory screen popped up. I’d forgotten to disable time-based victory.
All in all, it was a fun game with a somewhat unsatisfying end, but I beat king and now I’m back to working.
