Introduction

Welcome to Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution! The game is a fairly easy 1,000, although it will take a little bit of time to earn the complete amount. There are a lot of miscellaneous achievements you should pick up without effort, but a few are actually challenging and require guidance to acquire.

Note: Some people have reported the Difficulties Mastered achievement is glitched. The best way to avoid this happening is to exit fully back to the main menu after winning a game. If the achievement does glitch on you, the only thing you can do is redo each civilization and exit back to the main menu after each win.

Step 1: Familiarizing Yourself with the Game

The controls and command system on the game are a lot to take in at once. Taking the time to play a few rounds just to get used to the game can make a world of difference. After this step, we'll be moving straight into King difficulty, so be sure you're ready before you proceed. If you'd like to pick up some achievements while doing this, the best to go for are The Universal Brotherhood of Man, Organized Knowledge, The Root of All Evil, Curse of the Drinking Class, What is the City But the People?, and The Will to Win is Everything. You'll also get various other miscellaneous achievements as you proceed without even trying, just because they're such common occurrences. When you think you're ready for King difficulty, proceed to step 2.

Step 2: King Difficulty Achievements

Now you'll be going for three achievements in particular: That We May Live in Peace, Absolute Power is Kind of Neat and Power Never Takes a Step Back. The guide below has excellent strategies for obtaining these, so use them! None of them should be difficult, but That We May Live in Peace is annoying due to the fact that you'll constantly be reloading a save to get it. Just like in the last step, you'll also receive some achievements without even trying.

Step 3: Deity Difficulty Achievements

This is the hard part. Once you get done with these, it'll be smooth sailing for the rest of the gamerscore. For each of these achievements (Embiggens the Smallest Man, Such Joy Ambition Finds, Playing the Game, and Indistinguishable from Magic), you'll need to win a specific kind of victory on Deity difficulty. Just as in the last step, the guide below has excellent strategies that will help you tremendously in gaining these achievements, so refer to it for instruction. Doing this will also earn you Destroyer of Worlds and all of the victory type-specific achievements.

Step 4: Difficulties Mastered

This is a rather easy, but fairly time consuming achievement. For Difficulties Mastered, you'll need to win as each civilization at least once. From your previous games, you should have a fair amount of these achievements already unlocked. For the ones you have left, see the strategy under Difficulties Mastered below. Doing so should finish up this achievement for you in less than three hours.

Step 5: Wrap Up/Here's Looking at You, Kid

Finish off any achievements you're still lacking using the guide below. One of the last (or more likely the last) achievement you'll have left is Here's Looking at You, Kid. For this achievement, you'll need to unlock all famous persons. It's very unclear what unlocks a specific famous person, and it seems to be random aside from time period-specific persons and the fact that certain civilizations have affinities for specific famous people.

Conclusion

After 20+ hours, the full 1000 is now yours. Congratulations on accomplishing this feat!

  • This achievement isn't hard to earn, but it can be time consuming. Your best bet would be to use the easiest difficulty, Chieftain, and then select a civilization. To make it easy on yourself, start from the left and work your way to the right when selecting the next Civilization that you have to use. From there it's just a matter of winning.
  • The fastest way to do this, is to play the Scenario: Lightning Round on Chieftain and focus on a Technology Win. You only need to research 24 technologies and even fewer because you get a few techs for free at the start of the game. It will usually take 15 minutes per game which is much faster than regular.
A Revelation of Man20
Win a Cultural Victory. 

See the achievement "Embiggens the Smallest Man."

Embiggens the Smallest Man30
Win a Cultural Victory on at least King difficulty. (14) 

Difficulty --- Deity
Scenario ---- Beta Centauri
Civilization ---- Greeks or any other civilization

Once the game has started:

Change your government to Monarchy to start. Defend with your 1st Modern Infantry. Barbarians will most likely attack you, which in time is good for you, as it’ll upgrade your unit making them better defenders. Go into the city screen and immediately press , this will switch your city from producing science, (which you don’t need because you have all technologies), and you’ll start producing gold. Next go to customize your workers, putting some on food, some on tech, and some on gold. Then change what you are building to a temple. Once you’ve built the Temple, build the Cathedral.

At this point you should get your first Great Person, or will be close to getting them. You should settle any Great Person, unless it’s a Great Builder. In which case you should use the Great person to complete a wonder for you. Magna Carta should be the first wonder you build.

Next you should build a Courthouse, then a Market, then a Bank.

Once you have 100 gold and you earn your settler, use that settler to build a new city. In this city you should go in the same order building a Temple, Cathedral, Courthouse, Market, then a Bank. You should also immediately change from science to gold. Also remember, if you can’t settle a Great Person in your capital, move the Great Person to your second city and settle them there.

Never use a Great Person other then to settle them, unless you can use that Great Person to complete a Wonder, or if you can use that Great Person to Culture Flip a city. If you get a Great Person that you can’t settle in your first 2 cities, hold on to them and build a 3rd city or take over a city and settle them in the next city.

At this point you should build 2 more modern infantry for each city, and combine them to make an army, and you should build 1 Artillery unit that will help defend the city. Build a road between each city. Once other civilizations start bothering you, defend with the modern infantry but use your Artillery to fight the enemies Artillery.

Once you have those defensive units in place, you can start building wonders. Start building Wonders from the lowest amount up to the highest. If you get a Great Builder in the middle of a Wonder, hold on to them and use them to build one of the higher cost Wonders. Also in between Wonders, use your gold to build a building before you start the next Wonder. Like a Factory, Iron Mine, or some other building to help you raise your production. Make sure that you build the Manhattan Project and not another Civilization.

You’ll come to a point where eventually you’ll have to take over a city or 2. This will allow you to build more culture, and in so doing will allow you to flip cities using your culture.

Tip: You can only flip cities if you know they are there. You could be just a few moves away, but if it's under the war fog, then you can’t flip it.

The best way to take over cities, are to mass produce Bombers, form some wings, and have them do all the attacking of cities. Then once they are sufficiently whittled down, move in some ground forces to take it over.

Once you’ve taken over a city, the first thing you want to do is build a temple, buy it, and then start building a Cathedral. Then next round you’ll buy the Cathedral and start building a Courthouse. Next round buy the Courthouse and what you build after that is up to you, though Harbors, Granaries, and Aqueducts are a good way to go, (Because the bigger your city, the more culture you earn) By doing this you are increasing your Culture and chances are you’ll start converting cities over with your culture. Also, don’t forget to build roads connecting every city that you’ve taken over.

Feel free to take over capitals, since palaces give you more culture…just don’t take over ALL capitals. You shouldn’t need to flip too many cities, as Wonders built and Great People settled should account for about 14+ out of the 20 needed to be able to build the United Nations.

Difficulty --- Deity
Scenario ---- Beta Centauri
Civilization ---- American or any other civilization

Once the game has started:

Change your government to Monarchy to start. Defend with your 1st Modern Infantry. Barbarians will most likely attack you, which in time is good for you as it’ll upgrade your unit making them better defenders.
Go into the city screen and immediately press which will switch your city from producing science, (which you don’t need because you have all technologies), and you start producing gold. Next go customize your workers, putting some on food, some on tech, and some on gold. Then change what you are building and build a temple. Once you’ve built the Temple, build the Cathedral.

At this point you should get your first Great Person or be close to getting them. You should settle any Great Person, unless it’s a Great Builder. In which case you should use the Great person to complete a wonder for you. Magna Carta should be the first wonder you build.

Next you should build a Courthouse, then a Market, then a Bank.

Once you have 100 gold and you earn your settler, use that settler to build a new city. In this city you should go in the same order building a Temple, Cathedral, Courthouse, Market, then a Bank. You should also immediately change from science to gold. Also remember, if you can’t settle a Great Person in your capital, move the Great Person to your second city and settle them there.

At this point you should build 2 more modern infantry for each city, and combine them to make an army, you should build 1 Artillery unit that will help defend the city. Build a road between each city. Once other civilizations start bothering you, defend with the modern infantry but use your Artillery to fight the enemies Artillery.

Once you have those defensive units in place, you can start building wonders and buildings as you desire. What you really need to do, is build the Manhattan Project so that no other Civilization has nukes but you. Also, make sure before you really start to produce units that all buildings are built in both cities, don’t be afraid to use your gold to help build buildings either.

Once you’ve got all buildings built in both cities, start mass-producing Flying Fortress or, if you’re not playing the Americans, Bombers. Once you’ve got three combine those into wings. Once you’ve got 8 wings of bombers, use one city to build Modern Infantry, and once you’ve got 5 armies of those, stop producing bombers and modern infantry and instead build Tanks in one city and artillery in another. 3 armies of each of those and you are ready to rock and roll!!!!

Keep your artillery with your Modern Infantry, and keep your army nearby also. Take your bombers, you should have at least 10 wings, and just attack the nearest city. You may lose a few wings, that’s ok though, have your 2 cities go back to producing bombers. Your bombers should whittle away and finally destroy all opposition in the enemy city. Once the next round starts, use your bombers again, if your bombers are no longer able to attack then it’s time to use your tanks to take over the city.

Once you’ve taken over a city, the first thing you want to do is build a temple, buy it, then start building a Cathedral. Then next round you’ll buy the Cathedral and start building a Courthouse. Next round buy the Courthouse and what you build after that is up to you, though Markets and Banks are a good way to go. By doing this you are increasing your Culture and chances are you’ll start converting cities over with your culture. Also, don’t forget to build roads connecting every city that you’ve taken over.

Anyways, dock all Bomber Wings in your new city, including new ones your 1st 2 cites have built while fighting, along with all your tanks, Modern Infantry, and Artillery. Leave at least 1 army of Infantry in your new city before you start to attack a different city, though I always found it to be a good idea to leave 2.

Pretty much what you’ll be doing is rinsing and repeating. Have your bombers do almost if not all the city battle and then let your ground troupes take the city over. At any point you can stop for a few rounds to replenish your army and then start attacking again.

I’ve found that after taking over an enemy Palace they will normally want to make peace with you, though sometimes there is an exception. Also, if you know where an Enemy Capital City is, feel free to go straight for the capital.

Plus you shouldn’t have to use your nuke at all. But there you have it, it may take some time, but when I played this, I felt like I was playing on Chieftain difficulty, I completely dominated the whole game, I could have won either economic or the culture victory, and that does get annoying because they tell you at the beginning of EVERY turn that all you have to do is build .

I will say that this may not be the quickest, but I have yet to lose a Deity game using the aforementioned strategy. It's all about culture and gold, and everything else follows.

Alternate Method: (Thanks to Spanish Assault)

Follow the directions from the guide but instead of mass producing Flying Cities and attacking other civilizations just alternate between building Modern Infantry, Sherman Tanks and Artillery and defend your cities. I settled a third city as well and built up my culture using the same method for the first two cities. Make sure you have each unit defend the city by pressing . Also be sure to build a Wall to add to your cities defense. I was able to fight off all attackers with little issues. Keep using gold to speed up the build of each unit. Don't forget to save often. After around 2450 AD the game will tell you that 5 turns are remaining. Since your culture and gold is built up, you'll win and it will count as a Domination victory.

**DO NOT BUILD THE WORLD BANK OR UN WONDERS. BUILDING THOSE WONDERS WILL END THE GAME AND GIVE YOU A ECONOMIC OR CULTURAL WIN**

A Penny Saved is a Penny Earned20

Difficulty --- Deity
Scenario ---- Beta Centauri
Civilization ---- Greeks or any other civilization really.

Once the game has started:

Change your government to Monarchy to start. Defend with your 1st Modern Infantry. Barbarians will most likely attack you, which in time is good for you as it’ll upgrade your unit making them better defenders.
Go into the city screen and immediately press which will switch your city from producing science, (which you don’t need because you have all technologies), and you start producing gold. Next go customize your workers, putting some on food, some on tech, and some on gold. Then change what your building and build a temple. Once you’ve built the Temple, build the Cathedral.

At this point you should get your first Great Person or be close to getting them. You should settle any Great Person, unless it’s a Great Builder. In which case you should use the Great person to complete a wonder for you. Magna Carta should be the first wonder you build.

Next you should build a Courthouse, then a Market, then a Bank.

Build a road between each city. Once other civilizations start bothering you, defend with the modern infantry but use your Artillery to fight the enemies Artillery.

But once you have those defensive units in place, you can start building wonders and buildings as you desire. Make sure that you build The Internet, as that wonder will help the most. But really what you’ll be doing is collecting the gold…building buildings and wonders just help the time go by. And once all the wonders are built, I would switch government from Monarchy to Democracy.

It should be noted that you will be challenged by other civilizations, but you should have no problem defending your cities…and while your waiting for your gold, you can always build more defensive units.

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.

Ideas Control the World20
Win a Technology Victory. 

See the achievement "Indistinguishable From Magic."

640K Ought to be Enough30
Win a Technology Victory on at least King difficulty. 

See the achievement "Indistinguishable From Magic."

Indistinguishable From Magic45
Win a Technology victory on Deity difficulty. (55) 

Choose the Lightning Scenario.
Choose the Aztecs as your Civilization or the Greeks.

To achieve a technological win in the Lightning scenario, one only has to get into the modern age, (24 total techs researched). So there will be no space station launching going on. Aztecs will help you achieve this since they get +3 science per temple they have built. Or the Greeks will help you achieve this as they get more Great People.

You start off with 3 cities with an archer in each.

The best thing to do is to go into the city screen and customize the workers. You're gonna have 1 big city, 1 medium city and 1 small city. All cities should have at least 2 science production. This is how I like to have them set up. Small city = 2 science, 2 food, & 2 production. Medium city = 4 science, 2 food, & 2 production. Large city = 4 science, 2 food, & 4 production.

Now please note that those are really just estimates, but should be close to that. I’m also going to warn right now, that you can find out from the beginning if you have a good chance of winning or not. If your cities are around a lot of land and not a lot or water, quit right away because you're not going to win easily…if at all. If you are around a good bit of water then let me warn you when I say that a lot of this can and maybe will fall down to whether you get a certain great person or not.

Once you have built a library and a temple, customize your workers again. Maybe this time give some cities some more science, and for your largest city bump up the production just a bit while still managing to have science. Pick the quickest science you can research every time until you see democracy in the list, (if 2 techs take the same time, figure out which one helps towards getting Democracy and research that). Research Democracy then switch to Democracy as soon as you have it researched and then continue researching the shortest tech.

Some extra tips:

  • Once you reach 100 gold and receive a settler, settle him into your largest city that’s surrounded by water. Don’t bother making a new city, it’ll be a waste of time.
  • After building the library and temple, you have to build the Courthouse. Doing this will allow you to become a high science producing city. Once you’ve got about 15-17 technologies researched, you should have a courthouse in every city, and all you have to do is put your production on science for each city.
  • Also, make sure that once you have enough gold, build roads connecting your cities, and use 1 city to build some defensive units Archers or Pikemen and then ship them to other cities. Your gonna be at war with other civs…you can’t stop that unless you manage to get a great person early in the game and you build the great wall, so your gonna have to build some defensive units. If you get lucky enough that they only focus on one city, then make sure that city has an army of Archers, and maybe a back up and you should be good.
  • Do not give away technology for peace. I mean seriously? All your asking for is to lose.

Tips on how to use great people:

When you get Great People, the best thing to do is to us them for their powers right away. If you get a Great Person, don’t settle them take their gifts!

There is only one exception, if you get a great scientist, settle him into your largest city that is surrounded by a lot of water.

If you should get a Great Person that would allow you to complete a wonder immediately, I would definitely recommend that you use that to get the Great Wall built, (meaning you’ll have peace while researching techs so you won’t have to worry about building defense units), or the Colossus of Rhodes, (which will up the amount of science being researched.)

If you get a Great Person that will give you gold, take that gold.

If you get a Great Person that will give +1 population to your cities, take the +1 population.

Know that this achievement is tough, but this scenario is quick. If you get half way and they suggest that you save, don’t even bother, if you lose just retry it again. This scenario is an easy way to get a difficult achievement, and luck of the draw when it comes to Great People is going to make you or break you.

Destroyer of Worlds30
Win all types of victories (Domination, Technology, Cultural, and Economic). (4) 

You are able to get this achievement before winning on Deity difficulty. So if you don't mind playing the game a few extra times, play through a game on the easiest mode, Chieftain, and play your heart out. You should be able to get all four wins with out to much difficulty, but still I will give you tips.

  • At the beginning of the match, bulk up on warriors and try to quickly take over one civilization. It shouldn't be to hard at the beginning to just lay seige on a city with an army or 2 of warriors and to win.
  • Once you've taken over one civilization, build up your defense in your cities and start trying to populate your cities quickly, along with creating a 2 or 3 more cities, (remember you get a free settler once you reach 100 gold)
  • Take the time to build a couple of ships to go explore the rest of the world
  • Once your civilization is growing and well defended, start bulking up on technology and wonders.
  • It shouldn't be too long before you can outclass any civilization on the board. At this point you can save this map as it is, and then focus on trying to obtain a certain win.
The Universal Brotherhood of Man25
Develop a city to produce 200 culture per turn. (5) 

As usual, fully develop your Capital City and put your Civilization on Monarchy (or use English because they start with it). Use your Capital City for this one because it gains a boost from the Palace. A Great Person is needed as well as the Shakespeare Theater and The Magna Carta, (the Theater gives a x2 towards culture output, and Magna Carta gives your courthouse a culture output as well. Both are Wonders.) to gain it.

Organized Knowledge25
Develop a city to produce 200 science per turn. 

Build a City that is well surrounded by water, (6+ tiles would be best), and fully develop it (Library and University is needed). Use a Great Personality that boosts Research and put your City on Technology. You should be able to get it somewhere around City Level 25. Or if you done the Achievement below just use the same city, (making sure said city has Market and Bank), and change to Gold Production.

The Root of All Evil25
Develop a city to produce 200 gold per turn. (1) 

Build a City that is well surrounded by water or desert, (again 6+ tiles would be best) and fully develop it (Market and Bank is needed). Use a Great Personality that boosts Gold and put your City on Gold Production. Building The Internet and The Trade Fair of Troyes, (which are Wonders), will help you get this faster. You should be able to get it somewhere around City Level 25. Or if you done the Achievement above just use the same city (making sure said city has Library and University) and change to Technology Production.

Curse of the Drinking Class25
Develop a city to produce 200 resources per turn. (11) 
  • Choose the Americans as your Civilization.
  • Early on in the game, take your SETTLERS to a large mountainous area (4+ large peaks!) and build your CITY.
  • Set the WORKERS at this CITY to PRODUCTION.
  • Keep building everything! BUILDINGS and WONDERS at the same location.
  • Switch your government to Communism.
  • As you get to 1980, or so, and your other CITIES have run out of things to build, start building SETTLERS at these CITIES and move them (via ROADS) to your mountain retreat.
  • By 2000 you should have well over 200 PRODUCTION.
Buy the Ticket, Take the Ride3
Make contact with another civilization. 

This achievement is one that can't be missed...unless of course you somehow isolate yourself for the whole game, (very doubtful). For this achievement you can either not explore and just work on your city and eventually be contacted by another civilization, or you can go explore and chances are you'll wander into another civilization...either way Achievement Unlocked.

Culture is Worth a Little Risk9
Build a Wonder of the World. 

For this achievement, you'll need to learn a technology that will allow you to build a Wonder, or maybe your civilization will start of with a technology that will allow you to build a Wonder. Either way, once you are able to build a wonder, (you'll know because when you go into the city screen Build Wonder will be highlightable), click on Build Wonder, choose a wonder and wait. And eventually, Achievement Unlocked.

Once More Unto the Breach5
Combine three identical units into an army. 

This one is pretty simple and you should be able to get it quick. When your first city is settled, manage the workers so that they are only on production tiles and start building warriors. Once one is built you can use it to explore around the city, but not to far. Then wait for your third one to be produced. Then you simply get all 3 warriors into one tile, and when one of the warriors are able to move, then simply press and you've got an army.

80% of Success is Showing Up5
Accumulate culture to unlock a famous person. 

See the achievement "The Universal Brotherhood of Man."

Home is Where One Starts From3
Construct a special building. 

This is another achievement where you'll need to research a technology or you'll have the technology available to build a building. Once your able to build a building, (from the city menu), choose a building and wait. And a short while later, Achievement Unlocked.

Good Afternoon, Doctor Jones.9
Discover an ancient artifact. (1) 
  • There are 6 Relics to be found in the game: The Ark of Covenant, The Seven Cities of Gold, The Angkor Wat, The Lost City of Atlantis, The Knights Templar, and The School of Confucius.
  • The best way to find one of these is on the easiest setting, Chieftain, and exploring. Destroying barbarians and finding peaceful settlements, will help as they will either give you clues or uncover a relic on your map. Then all you'll have to do is go to it. 
Before all Else, Be Armed5
Earn a special unit ability in combat. 

See the achievement "The Will to Win is Everything."

Scientia Potentia Est3
Complete development of any technology. 
  • Honestly...you don't have to do anything out of your way to get this achievement...and I don't think you can not get this achievement, but with that said...
  • When you build your first city, go into the city screen and go to Manage Workers and move a worker from one of the tiles and put it on a science tile, (such as water). When you leave the screen, up should pop the technology screen having you pick a technology to learn. Choose one and wait...a few rounds later and you should have Achievement Unlocked.
Napalm in the Morning3
Defeat an enemy unit. 

See the achievement "The Will to Win is Everything."

The Fruit of Labor5
Build a second city in a game. 
  • This is another simple achievement, but here is how you go about earning it.
  • Once your first city is settled, go into the city screen and go to Manage Workers, from there go to Custom and move the worker from production to resource. You'll be waiting around a little doing nothing, waiting for you city to get to level 3. Once there you'll be allowed to build a settler, so once again change your workers, this time put them all on your production tiles, and soon you'll have a settler in which you can move to another location and by pressing you'll build a second city!
  • Or you can simply explore around and destroy barbarians, and visiting peaceful villages and gain gold. Once you gain 100 gold, you'll be given a settler. Same thing applies, move this settler to your desired location and press .
What is the City But the People?25
Grow a city to size 20. (1) 
  • Working on any of the following achievements will produce this achievement for you: The Universal Brotherhood of Man, Organized Knowledge, The Root of All Evil, Curse of the Drinking Class.
  • But just in case you need some more help, these tips could help: Build settlers and settle them in a city, also manage as many of your city workers onto food resource as this will help your city grow the fastest.
The Will to Win is Everything25
Win 20 battles with one unit. (4) 
  • What you do is first go to play a scenario you do this by:
    • 1. Clicking on single player 2. Clicking on Scenario
  • Now the one you want is Beta Centauri.
  • This scenario is based in the future, now because you don't have a time limit in scenario you can take as long as you want.
  • Pick the German Civilization this is because they have Automatic weapons which makes it quick and easy.
  • Start the game.
  • Now when you start off you see that you start off with Modern Military, set them to Defense and wait.
  • While your waiting i suggest you build the same unit twice just so you can form an army. You find that with all the add ons you get after killing 3 batches of enemy your defense total will go up to about 120 so your easy runnings.

That We May Live in Peace25
Win the game by year 1000 AD on King difficulty or higher. (56) 

Difficulty: King
Civilization: Aztec

Using the Aztec civilization is the easiest way to achieve this achievement. First thing you want to do, is go into your city screen and customize your workers so that you have them all on science production. Then you’ll want to rush a warrior unit. Once you leave the city screen, save your game. And choose to research for Horsemen.

From here use your warrior to determine where the closest city is…it should be only 5-6 turns away at most. Once you’ve discovered the closest city, reload your save and move your warrior there ASAP. Chances are you’ll get there as they produce their warrior and maybe you’ll get lucky enough that they’ll take him exploring and you’ll have a free city. But either way, save before you attack, but then attack and take over this city, if your warriors loss, then just reload the Saved game and redo it. I was able to get mine the first time.

Now you’ll want to save a again, and again go out searching for the rest of the cities. Once you’ve found them, Load up your saved game again, and us your warrior to go exploring…possibly finding gold and technologies for you. Once you’ve got horsemen researched, change both of your cities to production, and start mass producing horsemen. I was able to take over my first city with 1 Horse Army, and an extra Horse unit. Use the time in between horse production, to take a Horse unit and go fight some barbarians. This will allow you to get Veteran status and possibly an elite status, like infiltration, before you go fight your first city.

Main thing to remember is to save before you attack a city and if you’re successful then save after you take it over. Once take over cities keep mass producing Horse unit and make Armies. My third city I took over with 3 Horse Armies, and my fourth and final city took me 2 rounds with 4 Horse armies to win. I finished in 600AD and only had to restart once…and that was trying to take over the third city, I got completely beat up, so I reloaded and tried again, and ended up winning that time.

Random Notes:

  • Keep in mind that defensive units are not needed, unless you see enemies coming close to a city, in which case just rush an archer, then go back to making
  • Wasting turns is the worst thing you can do. So if you think you could have done something a lot quicker just reload from last save point.
  • Us your best units first when attacking a city, this will give you the best chance of winning, while also allow your other units to have a decent shot at winning if your first unit fails.
  • Sometimes not joining 3 horsemen into 1 unit will give it 3 attacks instead of 1. This is useful when you need to clear some last units of warriors.
  • If you get a great person, don’t settle them, use them right away…esp. if they’ll give you gold.
  • Before you attack later cities…make sure you have all your units with you and ready to fight before you start war. If need be take a few turns to gather up your armies, and if you can bring a spy with you, it’ll only help you out.
  • If all the capitals aren't on the same island, start a new game, it's alot easier and time effiecient if you don't have to travel over seas.
Absolute Power is Kind of Neat25
Win without changing governments on King difficulty or higher. (8) 

Follow the guide for Power Never Takes a Back Step, but do not change your government. If you want you can use another civilization, such as the English as they start with Monarchy, or any other civilization. Just don't and I repeat do not change your government and you'll get the achievement.

Power Never Takes a Back Step25
Win with only one city on at least King difficulty. (6) 

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.
