So I earned my very first Civ VI win tonight. Granted, it was only on Chieftain level, but hey, I’m still casually learning this game. I hadn’t played it in a while, and it was on my list of to play a bit this month, so I made good on my goal.
I almost didn’t win this one. Peter was out in front of me in culture for a long while. Since we were on friendly terms, I just resigned to thinking I’d probably lose to him. However, just a fluke saw Japan go to war with Russia, and then Japan asked me to an alliance with them.
I didn’t realize that when I agreed, I’d be going to war with Russia, too. I learned something important tonight! However, it was in my favor, because I could go in and start pillaging all of Peter’s culture and science buildings, which set him far enough behind that I could surpass him.
Evil, I know. But all’s fair in Civ.
