You should probably consult this thread

This subject is discussed at length (over 3 pages now) and I'm sure it covers what your looking for. Otherwise your starting a extra thread that is just going to make this subject more complicated to search through. Good luck.

That was also the last person I needed so I used a spy in one of the games and stole a great person and ended up being Cheops. Not sure if thats how you get him or if I just lucked out but thats how I did it.

I'd like this thread to be dedicated to working cheops methods, as I've not had much luck with the ones listed in the other thread

Cheops was the only guy left for me, I Played English on a normal game, chieftan difficulty, researched pottery and masonry only and then he was the first that popped up.

I did exactly what extreme did to get aesop, just consult the civilopedia and see what tech he's releated to, research that tech only, and then stop your science and focus on culture. You should get him within that group of great people. It works.

As for stealing them from other civs, I dont think it works, as I stole aesop from a civ and didnt get credit for it, but it may be buggy.

Following another user's advice, here's how I got Cheops:

Civ: English
Difficulty: King
Change city production to science. Research Pottery then Masonry (the tech Cheops is associated with). After Masonry was researched, took it off tech and switched it to production (i also pressed 'y' to switch science to gold, just in case). I was building the Samurai Castle wonder just so I didn't have to bother with the city screen anymore.

Waited for a great person to appear, and he was the first! This took me several tries though. I got other rare ones too, like Homer and David on my first few goes.

I just unlocked my last 3 great people in an online match - try that but when you do it you have to unlock one more great person in a single player game so just go Americans as they start with a great person.
