I need to get back to playing this game as well... I am like 2 or 3 people away from unlocking the "unlock all great people" achievment. Stupid Plato never comes to my city!

A couple months ago my dad won a cultural victory on deity level. Here I thought he would have trouble picking up on computer games, now he kicks my butt.

Wow. That's pretty incredible--had to have been really, really tough.

This version is a lot easier than the pc version. Cultural victories are not too terribly hard.

That’s what blew me away about my dad’s victory he only plays the PC version.

He’s really mastered the art of playing the other players off against each other which is how he did it. I think the best culture victory I’ve ever gotten was at prince and even then it was a close run thing.

I have no clue how to even begin to do that. I mean, I'll benefit from other players fighting, if they ever do, but I don't know how to cause it, other than making alliances, attacking someone, then trying to make peace before my ally does.

He mostly plays “Civ4 Warlords” and “Beyond the Sword“. I’m not sure if the diplomacy translates from those to “Revolution.” As he explained it to me it’s all about knowing which AIs you can deal with and which you just have to take out before they come for you. Build up a big war chest and use it to bribe AIs to either leave you alone and/or attack each other. Taking advantage of the war by going after them when they are weak. He’s also said it best to bait them into attacking you when you want a war so you don’t take the diplomatic hit. I tell you he’s got this game down to a science and all on his own as he hates the internet. But then he and I have wargamed since the 1960s so turn based strategy games are second nature to him.

Ah, yes. I've done that to a lesser degree. I've got the base Civ IV for the PC, no expansions, etc.
