Anybody got any tips on how to do a One City Challege game.
And what exactly are the rules. Must you have only one city. Can you keep
captured cities and use settlers from goody huts? Or is it just whatever
rules you set for yourself at the begining?

In the strictest sense, you must never have more than one city for any
reason. I think most players relax it such that you may never end a turn
with more than one city. That gives alot of flexibility.

If you're in some competitive arena, you should check the rules with the
other players.

OCCs should ideally be played as peaceful games with 20k culture, SS, or
diplomatic victory the goal.

Don't forget the 5CC which allows the small wonders that require 5 of some
prerequisite building.

I thought it was only supposed to be one city for the entire game.

I'm not competiting or anything like that. Just wanted to try something
different.

That was my goal, but I was on an Island with the Celts who wanted to keep
attacking me... And I kept loosing the wonder I was building to an unmet
civ a few turns before I would finish. What's the best way to stay
peaceful, while not trading the valuable techs leading to wonders? Should I
choose more peaceful civs to be my enemies instead of random? BTW I used
HOF Mapfinder to get a good start. Ivory, River and Coast with about half
and half of plains and grasslands. I think part of my problem is that it's
at Regent and I've not mastered it yet. However, Warlord seems easy....
I do believe I could play the same map with several cities and do really
well since there are several other resoures/luxuries within easy reach of
the starting postion.
Are well defended colonies with well defended roads an option for OCC or is
that a waste of time?

Now there's a thought. Only build 1 city and gain 4 more through various
means for the 5CC....
