FIRST LOOK: SWEDEN Kristina leads Sweden in Civilization VI: Gathering Storm. She became Queen of Sweden at the age of six, and is remembered for her intelligence, strong-will, and her interest in the arts and sciences. Sweden’s unique ability is “Nobel Prize.” When Sweden is present in a game, all civilizations can engage in three Nobel Prize competitions in the World Congress. Sweden also receives additional points towards Great Scientists or Great Engineers from Universities and Factories and gains Favor when they earn a Great Person. Their unique improvement is the Open-Air Museum. They may only build one per city and it provides Loyalty. It also provides Culture and Tourism for each different Terrain type on which a Swedish city has been settled. Sweden’s unique unit is the Carolean. This Anti-Cavalry unit is unlocked at the Renaissance era. It receives additional Strength for unused Movement points, and is faster than similar units. Kristina’s unique ability is “Minerva of the North.” Buildings with at least three great works slots, and Wonders with at least two Great Work slots, are automatically themed when they have all their slots filled. Also, she can construct the Queen’s Bibliotheque in the Government Plaza, granting additional slots for Great Works. The key to unlocking Sweden’s cultural power is settling cities across all terrain types, and filling them with Open-Air Museums. Be sure to attract as many Great Artists, Musicians, and Writers as you can, and you’ll be set for a Culture Victory. Sweden is also a strong contender in the Diplomatic game, and each Great Person will give them another edge in the World Congress. Will your legacy be recorded by painter and poet?
