This is sort of an unusual post but I was absolutely racking my brain in a recent online game trying to maximize my points in my penultimate turn.

The board state can be seen here



What I was trying to do and was ultimately unsuccessful at was:
Develop Movies
Build a Movie Theater
Finish the Internet wonder
Develop Air Forces
Build 1 Air Force unit

In a two turn span, I just could not figure out a way to get all the science I needed to develop 22 science worth of stuff, and also have the resources to build everything I wanted. I got so close but just could not make it work with what I had!

With the next event to be revealed being International Agreement and I being the strongest Civ, I even looked ahead at the civil cards I could potentially take. The only other useful card that came up after the screenshot was a Revolutionary Idea (+6 science), which I took in my final turn with the International Agreement, but still wasn't enough.

Can anyone spot a way to solve this penultimate puzzle?

Were you ahead or behind in culture? What’s your position?

Personally my turn would be:
Take Bill Gates, take movies, research movies, create a population, build a movies

I would not finish internet yet. On next turn I’d armed intervention, research mech ag if I could, elect gates, finish internet and build whatever would help me win end game scoring.

You mentioned trying to build Air Force - why? You’re ahead in military already and have a great last turn aggression in your hand. I understand if you’re not ahead in VP and need to ensure it lands, but can’t tell that from the screenshot.
