This is the story of my game of Civilization IV Epic Nine from Realms Beyond Civilization.
It's an unscored game, so the gameplan is to just win. With No Tech Trading NOT on, the AIs are free to trade techs among each other, meaning that turtling up to a space victory will be difficult. We're Aggressive, which is obvious what to do with, but I'm not quite sure how to leverage Expansive in this sort of game.
Also, after finishing this game, I replayed it with an entirely different game plan.
