Civilizations - These are the top 3 civilizations to use in multiplayer.
- These are the best, but you can make any work.
Techniques - A good way to start is with the Spanish civilization for they have a prior knowledge of Navigation . You should then move on to build a galleon and look for the ancient wonder "Knights templar" which will give you a random advanced unit to use. Next, find the starting capitals of the other players in the game and because it is so early on in the game, you can usually take them in a few turns, resulting in the overall end of the game as if you have two capitals you have a massive advantage.
