I enjoy playing team games, and Wonders are almost guaranteed to factor in the gameplay unless the map is wide open (e.g. Arabia). I have had very limited success in countering wonders, especially when the opposing team comes in with a clear wonder strategy (one player is the Wonder civ, usually HRE, who fast imperials and forgoes all military production).
How do you counter this?
- Build a wonder, but faster. This is hard to do if your opponent goes in with the Wonder game plan.
- Sacred sites. This is only really feasible if there are only 1 or 2 to control, and the Wonder-building team doesn’t preemptively wall off one of the sacred sites to delay you.
- Landmark snipe the wonder-building player. Only works if the wonder-building player is unaware of this. Otherwise, they build their landmarks with their wonder.
- Ignore the Wonder. Just play for fun and lose.
This isn’t to suggest Wonders are unbalanced. There are plenty of threads for that. I want to know how other people’s strategies for defeating opposing Wonders.
