I once played the "I am the greatest setting" and had 13 out of 100 cities, when my enemies started getting the best of me. So I collected all of my remaining armies into the strongest combinations possible, razed all except 3 of my cities and wandered with my armies in different directions of the map. I waited patiently for enemies to move and then captured weak cities. I kept the cities for as long as possible, and razed cities I couldn't possibly keep (since they were threatened to be overtaken by stronger enemies). I blessed my armies as often as I could. Slowly I weakened most of my enemies and eliminated them one by one. It took a lot of traveling! When just one enemy was left, I thought I had reached my limit. This enemy had 35 cities and I had 4! Yet I had a lot of loose armies in his territory. I decided to try and see how far I could go. So I started a blitz-war where I took and razed cities as fast as I could and kept moving around. Incredibly, the computer player got totally lost. It didn't know where to produce, locate or move its armies. Eventually I won the game by the same tactics of moving around, keeping some essential castles where I would locate whatever I could, sacking and razing! Don't give up too easily!
