Hi Neilo, KP, Justinsane et al
I figured the Kzinti had got a big enough lead over the Diplomats to warrant a return
That and dusting off the strategy ready for an immense galaxy in TA
Awesome achievement on the 250 games, by the way, I can't bang them out at under 10 minutes yet!
Nothing much different done to what has already been discussed here - just focus on the 3 most important things:
Economy, economy, & economy - even in a short 13 turn game it makes a big difference. Still working out the optimal research order, but have advanced the target a bit further now - 37100 on the last one, and that was done with only one research bonus tile (a 300%).
Have fun beating it - I've got an all abundant gigantic galaxy bubbling, that needs some immediate diplomatic intervention
