    - Where did you settle your cities?
    In place and first expansion south next to Eyflajökull
    - What did you research and which policies did you choose and why?
    Focus on Astrology and then no specific research focus (utilizing 50% inspirations). Went for Autocracy first for wonder building which I never do otherwise
    - What was your build order?
    Scout (started before I got archipelago info:), builder, settler, HS
    - How soon did you build a District? Which ones did you prioritize?
    Pretty soon HS in order to secure religion (thought I would have a chance on Stonehenge but Russia beat me to it). After that HS, Campus and Harbours
    - How did you place your districts?
    Try to get mountain adjancey for HS and Campus
    - Did you emphasize expansion? How many cities have you built/captured in the first 100 turns?
    Expansion with monumentality in classical golden age, 6 (almost 7 expansion) at turn 100, no captured yet
    - How did you play your governance cards, priorities?
    Science and builders, shifting to faith now
    - What City-States did you meet and which ones did you cultivate to your side?
    A lot and priority to spam envoys to make use of Papal Primacy
    - Were your neighbors peaceful?
    Yes, friends with most of them but I expect that to change when my converston push commences.
    - How was the lack of Barbarians?
    A bit hard to reach the classical golden age without barbarian camps but a nice peaceful start of this game compared to the usual games I play (mostly on Deity)

    So I'm still figuring out Civ VI and a King game felt like it would be about right! Archipelago is less my cup of tea but took a good stab.

    - Where did you settle your cities?
    I have two by the volcano I can't spell, one east by the river and southeast, and one above Hong Kong. I plan to also settle two in the northeast part of the island near Kilimanjaro, and to capture Hong Kong and worker rush Petra there. The bottom one is basically there for a second holy site on the volcano, I don't think it will add much more.
    - What did you research and which policies did you choose and why?
    I didn't really beeline; went for Astrology early and then slowly headed for Theocracy but mostly just tried to get eurekas and inspirations.
    - What was your build order?
    I don't remember... no scout, got galleys early.
    - How soon did you build a District? Which ones did you prioritize?
    Holy Sites, then Harbors, and now getting some campuses up but I felt like my science suffered a lot. I'm really far behind Alexander. No decent mountains unfortunately.
    - How did you place your districts?
    For adjacency bonuses, though district planning is still difficult for me. I basically never place them over resources and not sure if I should do that more.
    - Did you emphasize expansion? How many cities have you built/captured in the first 100 turns?
    None captured yet. Currently at 6 cities.
    - How did you play your governance cards, priorities?
    I had Xi'an building settlers for a really long time with the settler card.
    - What City-States did you meet and which ones did you cultivate to your side?
    Jerusalem and Hong Kong early. Found Kandy and been slowly trying to hold off some exploration until I can Suzerain it.
    - Were your neighbors peaceful?
    Yeah, no DOW on me, though Nubia and America are fighting as well as Macedon and Rome.
    - How was the lack of Barbarians?
    Really nice, not having to worry about galleys getting attacked and being able to freely send settlers away without escorts! I basically have no military.
    - Any surprises?
    Everything feels slow, I don't feel like I have much production or border expansion to speak of and don't think I'm going to get it. All i I've got going is that I'm going to have good FPT but hope that's enough to get the win.
