I’ll kick off with my current game of Civ 6 with the Rise and Fall DLC.
One of the things I like about the latest versions of Civ is that you can if you want get through a game with minimal fighting if you don’t want to. As Poundmaker I was busily amassing a huge capitalist empire whilst quietly leading out on science and culture with the aim of picking one in the endgame. I was allied or friendly with everyone except Sparta, my main competitor.
Around 1800 just as I was trying out making an airforce for a laugh, I noticed that the Dutch (who I was allied with) were hoovering up all of Brazil’s cities and Pedro’s capital was about to rebel. So on a whim to show a bit of solidarity I denounced Pedro (who I had been allied with before) and then declared a Colonial War on him, not intending to send a single unit anywhere near him.
A couple of turns later I become the subject of a 60 turn (!) Betrayal Emergency, where my nearest neighbours, the Romans and the Dutch(!) were invited to capture my capital. I reasoned since I was in a war now I might as well fight it, so I started practising with my newly built bombers and fighters, annexing most of the Roman Empire (and accidentally putting Trajan out of the game) and razing a few of the Dutch coastal cities (just to annoy them).
I spent most of a day coming through that, in the meantime not managing to pull away from Sparta in either science or culture. And now three of the remaining leaders all dislike me an eyewatering amount because of my “warmongering”, including the Dutch who started it all. Not Gorgo though. She loves a bit of aggro.
Could be in for a trickier than usual endgame.
