Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution

Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution Achievements

Power Never Takes a Back Step

Win with only one city on at least King difficulty.   

Start on King

Scenario ---- Beta Centauri

Civilization ---- The Greeks

Type of victory: Economic

Once the game has started:

Change your government to Monarchy. Defend with your 1st Modern Infantry. Barbarians will attack you but they will be no matches for your Infantry. Put city on Production. Build the Cathedral & Courthouse. Use a Great Person to build the Magna Carta for you, Build the Bank.

Settle 1 of each Great Person in your City, namely the ones that will increase output of culture and gold. Use another Great Person to complete The Internet.

Change City to Gold.

From here you can continue to build buildings and wonders, but mainly you’ll be just collecting gold, round after round. It should be noted that you will be challenged by other civilizations, but try to give them what they want to keep peace, though do try not to give them a lot of gold.

Also, you can build a few units near the end if it will make you feel more secure, but 8/10 times you won’t need more then just the infantry you started off with.

Once you’ve reached 20,000 gold, go into wonders and start building the World Bank, and you should easily be able to unlock your achievement.

You can also use this method to achieve an economic victory on Diety difficulty and unlock the Achievement Playing the Game.

I think it might give this achievement as long as you don't FOUND a second city. I played as the Mongols, and only used converted barbarians and conquered cities, but I got the achievement.

I played as the Aztecs on the It's Money That Matters map and never founded another city. Played it on King level and got three other cheevos to pop, but this one didn't for some reason?

I got this playing as the Mongols because every barbarian town you capture is converted into one of your own, and won't void the achievement.

1. New Settlers must be settled in your original city (do not create new cities, except the first)

2. You can conquer other nation's cities, and will need to, and you will still get the achievement! As long as you don't create any new cities (accept, of course, the first, the one and only).

3. The type of win is up to you. Many scenarios can work to accomplish this achievement.
