Epic 16, the medieval and renaissance eras



I use the artist from music to trip a GA.
I complete the Hanging Garden in 715 AD.
I razed a poorly placed barbarian city, so that I can build my city 1 tile west to claim the extra seafood.


I build an academy in Nidaros.
I build a city to get the sugar on-line.


I add Chichen Itza to the wonder list in 940 AD.
I found Taoism in the worst possible spot - my production city of Uppsala.
Khan becomes a pain in 1120 AD when he declares war.
I get general from this war, and he will become a military instructor in Teotihuacán, the future home of the Heroic Epic.
The war with Khan is forced to end due to the AP. This really bites, as I wanted to stay at war and take him out.
Trying to win without peace may be tough if I want to really score well.
I complete Angkor Wat in 1230 AD.
My recently acquired engineer rushes Notre Dame in 1265 AD.
I claim another fishing village.


I entered the renaissance era in 1325 AD.
I get another merchant that will be merged into Nidaros.
I continue to expand the empire.


I am the first to economics. My next GP arrives the same time.
I create Scotland Yard in Nidaros, and merge the economic merchant into Nidaros.
I complete Sistine Chapel in 1450 AD mainly for denial purposes. This wonder is very powerful toward a cultural victory.
I get another artist that I will save toward a golden age.
Since my spies tell me French is working toward Nationalism, I snag that via liberalism. I really want Taj Mahal. I continue to expand the empire.



The 1500 AD scoring period is good for 20 (corp.) and 14 (sushi) for a total of 34 points.


I complete Taj Mahal in 1535 AD and start my second GA.
I claim a junk city purely to gain a new happy resource.


I get stuck with another artist. He will stick around for potential 3 GP GA. If I get another artist, I have no idea what I will do with him.
I complete University of Sankore for denial purposes in 1575 AD.
I get another spy, and merge in into Nidaros to take advantage of Scotland Yard.
I entered the industrial era in 1685 AD.
