Getting Foothold in Europe; Fall of Portuguese | Civilization V Giant Earth Map Gameplay Part 6

Hey guys, AfricanManbeast here with Part 6 of the AMAZING Giant Earth Map Game as Nigeria. So far we have taken over Central and Eastern Africa (Except for the 1-2 cities I left for Ethiopia) as well as taken over almost all of the Carthaginian empire. I'm still at war with Carthage in fact. I wanted to completely eradicate them from Africa, for trading reasons and for personal reasons as well (I'm a psychotic monster)

At the beginning of this episode the only cities that Hannibal had left were Utique and his capital Carthage. I quickly mobilize my army and surround Utique, another (good) coastal city. I split up the army in the north to start heading and lay siege to the capital Carthage since I didn't need all of my units in order to take Utique, I wanted to save as much time as possible for what I knew would be a pretty long game. I take Utique without any complications.

Collapse of Carthaginian Empire | Civilization V Giant Earth Map Gameplay Part 5

AfricanManBeast back again with Part 5 of my Giant Earth map gameplay. This part continues on my expansion into Southern Africa as well as war with the Carthaginian Empire.

Where I left off, I was just about to capture the Carthaginian city of Gades. I pushed north to capture the cities of Carthago Nova, a coastal city, and Saguntum, an unimportant city in the middle of the desert. I captured Saguntum but Carthago Nova was more of a struggle. Did I ever mention how annoying the Carthaginian navy is?

I lost quite a few naval units because of it and I was pretty upset at that. Needless to say I continued advancing further into Carthage lands and with that, I captured Carthago Nova.

Bye Bye Songhai; Securing West Africa | Civilization V Giant Earth Map Gameplay Part 4

Hey guys, AfricanManBeast! This will be a longer post because not only am I going to war with Songhai, I eventually go to war with Carthage as well.

For the longest of time, I was ignoring those 2 civilizations because I wanted to deal with Ethiopia and the eastern part of Africa. Now that they're gone, I focused my attention back on Songhai and Carthage. They had annoyed me, stealing all the land north of Africa, the Songhai even settling Taghaza so freaking close to my capital.

The Songhai were first, as I talked about in my previous post, I moved my troops to the heartland. The more troops I moved, however, the more troops I see coming out of the Songhai, it was scary.

Fall of Egypt | Civilization V Giant Earth Map Gameplay Part 3

*NOTE* Better quality pictures

Hey guys! AfricanManBeast here back with Part 3 of My Giant Earth Map conquest as Nigeria. This part will be shorter than the others since this one will just be detailing my attack on the Egyptian Empire.

Speaking of attacking the Egyptian Empire, I attacked the turn I started. My troops were in place, now all I had to do was to take ou the Egyptian troops surrounding the city before I start attacking the city itself. My goal was to not have a single unit die in this campaign.

I cleared out any front troops with my Trebuchets and pushed forward with my Musketmen and Pikemen along the  Nile River. Once the path was clear I pushed across the Nile River and southeast of the capital, the Crossbowmen following. On the northern front, I had to whittle down the remaining Musketman and Horseman before pushing my Trebuchets forward to start attacking the city. After I had done that, everything was easy: just whittle down Thebe's HP and walk into the city...

Taking Central Africa; March Towards Egypt | Civilization V Giant Earth Map Gameplay Part 2

Hey guys AfricanManBeast here, and this report will go well into detail about Part 2 of my giant Earth map Civilization 5 game as Nigeria.

From the last report, I had launched an attack on Ethiopia, although they fought hard, I was able to capture my first city, Lalibela, from them. I used some turns to recuperate from the Battle of Lalibela, I also was sending more reinforcements to help in the war effort.

Haile was now afraid of the might of the Nigerian empire. I was emerging victorious. My next city was Gondar. As I crept south towards Gondar, I noticed how hard Haile was trying to protect it by surrounding it with units. I knew they would be trouble so I had to take them out first. I also couldn't attack Gondar immediately because I needed to wait for my siege units to traverse the jungle to get in range of the city.

It was difficult to travel through jungle and forest

Democracy 3 AAR - Realfail's America (Term 1)

Note: Mods and DLC I'm playing with will be at the bottom of the post.
Hello Noobventures!

I'm Realfail and today I will be Leader of the Free World, in DEMOCRACY 3! (Yeaaaaaaah)

First, I implemented the Teach First policy which just gets really good students to become teachers. One of my current crises is Pupil Tail which leads to Skills Shortage so lowering the education gap will help with that. I need to remember to pull it back later so I don't get high teacher unemployment. Next, I increased funding for the Teacher Development Programme and Teacher Training in order to speed up the decay of Pupil Tail.

Realfail Rules the Waves (Part 2) - A Paradox Megacampaign

Hello guys, Realfail here and I must apologize for the delay on this. I'm aware that I never set an agenda but I feel that it's a disservice to the few of you watching out there to not post regularly. Later I will do an update basically highlighting the new schedule AfricanManBeast and I are planning to make and I'll even post a new game for everyone out there.
................................................Message Over.............................................................................

Because last time all I did was announcements and the usual setting up, I'm going to get tons accomplished today.

First, I worked on making my character prestigious and went for the prestige buff decisions.

March eventually lost his scars and my fears of his early demise were pretty well sated.

Begin Wresting Control of Central Africa | Civilization V Gameplay Part 1

This game starts to get interesting!

In the prologue, I was just establishing the basis for what would soon become a massive empire. Now it was time to pursue my first actual military conquest. As Nigeria I started preparing a force that would march through the jungles to the heart Africa, where the Ethiopian empire lay.

One thing I did have to keep in mind though were the consequences that occur from my warmongering. I had discovered the Iberian peninsula, the first contact with Europeans, and I now my actions would start to have consequences with other civilizations. Not that I really cared, but I always like to keep realistic in my Civilization campaigns.

In the Beginning | Civilization 5 Giant Earth Map Nigeria Prologue

Hey guys, AfricanManBeast here. This will be my first after report of the first part of my GIANT EARTH MAP TSL (TRUE STARTING LOCATION) as the one and only Nigeria.

**The reason why this is a prologue is because the first part video file got corrupted so this post won't have pictures** :(

I started off on the coast thankfully. My capital was the wonderful city of Lagos (although it wasn't my most valuable city later in the game). My plan was to quickly scout west of my capital and to explore southern Africa to see if Shaka was there. Almost automatically I met...
