by the way mine was culture victory Civ III or Civ IV, I don't remember which one, but there was something uniquely satisfying when a City flipped to your country...

Yeah, I liked the cultural victory in Civ IV... Other than that, it was world domination all the way, but that took too long and was rather hard to achieve if there were a ton of islands. Third favorite was by going to Alpha Centauri.

For quick, I usually go culture as it's pretty easy to get.
For a challenge, I go conquest.


Usually when I play with a friend, one of us does the conquest and military, and the other does the research and support.

I currently have a game going with a friend where he is doing the military and I am doing the science and resources. He has to keep coming to defend me because the other civs want the resources I have.
In return I pump all my resources back to my friend so he can field a massive army.

Look at all these pansies with their cultural victory, straight conquest is how all strategy games should be played.

WORLD DOMINATION! i dont stop until every tile on the map is mine.

While conquest victories are the most enjoyable IMHO, I usually end up winning via science. Funny thing is that pushing for a conquest victory usually bags me the scientific, gotta make sure my soldiers all have plasma rifles in the 40 watt range.

When I go for conquest I just turn off all the other victory scenarios to prevent that from happening.

Science because you can build a military if someone wants to kill you, only your military is entire tech trees ahead of theirs. I used to like Gold victory in Civ Revolution but it's not in Civ V which makes me sad
