Ran into some massive issues with my first game. Made a few ridiculous mistakes early on, as it HAS been over a year since I’ve played. Installed the game on Dad’s laptop so I could play a little better (his is much faster than mine), and started over. Reduced the number of opponents (so the land doesn’t run out so dang fast), and fixed the early-on mistakes I made last time.
Made it further so far, doing pretty good! I’m leading a Christian-based alliance in a massive, reoccuring holy war with the Confucianists, who are led by Spain. Its getting pretty grizzly. Christians are winning so far, so I’m not too worried.
