How do you play with the Italians?

I like to boom, and create an army of inquisitors in the discovery age.

Agreed. Thats how I play as well. But without the inquisitors. The moneylending tech. does prove to be a useful tool to make up the small number of Merchants.

Agreed. It has a weak base attack like the pike-men. But like the pike-men, it has a huge dmg. bonus against mercs. and heroes and native warrior (i think).

you mean spy. They actually have a solid attack.

maybe some ideas for abilities for Italy.

Anglicanism - Converts any guardian, infantry or cavalry unit to your cause. Units have regular stats. (Inquisitor)

The Great Awakening - Boosts settler (and any unique settler) gathering rate in an area.
