I struggled on this achievement using the above methods. So I modified the "Here's looking at you, kid" achievement strategy. You should start the same way as in that guide by selecting the Beta Centarui scenario as the Greeks on Deity difficulty. Switch to a monarchy. Start your city immediately, then build another a settler. Make sure all cities produce gold. Settle another city close to the original. Always settle new cities on hills if available. There will be a steady flow of barbarians that will attack your cities and settlers. While you are only being attacked by barbarians, one modern infantry will be enough.

Build culture and economic buildings first. I chose this order: temple, market, cathedral, bank. New cities need courthouses also. Build up modern infantry armies in all cities after those buildings are built or sooner if other civs find you first. Four cities should be enough.

The rest of the game plays out by having you pass as many turns as possible. Defend always and let your units build up.

SAVE OFTEN!!! this is your advantage over the game! USE IT!

*LGS Hitman adds that if the other civs are getting an economic win, an additional precaution is "building the internet helped alot as they didn't double in size and I didn't have to use my nuke."

When I got towards the end, other civs were swarming me because I was leading the game. Pay attention though because around the year 2348 AD other cities get close to reaching their goals. The civs will ask for alliances to focus on them. Agree to their demands only here, refuse all others. Turns go faster toward the end of the game. You may have to build a nuke to finish a city close to an economic or cultural win.

You will always get a domination win in 2424 AD. No clue why but that is the only type of win you can get without building a World Bank or United Nations building.

Hope this works for you as well!!

Thanks to LGS I Hitman

*EDIT* Fixed my sloppy grammar mistakes.
