    Welcome to the 6otM 44 Opening Actions thread.
    STOP - Please do not continue reading this thread until you have completed at least 80 to 100 turns in your game.
    This thread is used to discuss the game once you've started playing through your first 100 turns. Apart from normal decency, the only posting restrictions are to please not post videos until the deadline is finished and to use the spoiler tags for screenshots. Here you can post questions related to the game and share your achievements/anger/frustration/victories while you play. Please remember that we are running a family friendly site, so express anger or frustration with this in mind. :)
    Please use this thread to discuss your goals for the game and your opening moves through the first 100 turns. Anything after that should be posted in the After Actions thread once you have completed your game.

    I don't usually remember to post to OA threads, but here we go. Turn 101 currently.

    - Where did you settle your cities?
    Settled in place because I figured there is way enough food even without the rice. Settled second city quite fast on the southern river but took too much time with further cities, which lead to some AI's forward settling me. I wanted to get a coastal city so I sent settlers 3 and 4 North, but as I was moving there I saw a Dutch settler with bad escorts so I took it and later eliminated NL. I settled then 3 more cities North from capital.

    - What did you research and which policies did you choose and why?
    Nothing unsual, wanted to get UU relatively fast and I did use them a lot against NL.

    - What was your build order?
    Scout - Monument (no use for workers early) - Settler - Slinger

    - How soon did you build a District? Which ones did you prioritize?

    Not very soon but it was Campus because I wanted UU techs faster. 2nd in capital was TD and 3rd CD. In 2nd city I started with Encampment and 2nd was CD.

    - How did you place your districts?

    Basic optimization. In early game I had to prioritize Bronze working because of the abundant jungle.

    - Did you emphasize expansion? How many cities have you built/captured in the first 100 turns?

    See above. Settled 5 and captured 4 from NL so far.

    - How did you play your governance cards, priorities?

    Ran autocracy probably for the first time ever, because I built Pyramids in the middle of the jungle in Capital. Otherwise oligarchy.

    - What City-States did you meet and which ones did you cultivate to your side?

    I'm allied with just Vilnius ATM.

    - Were your neighbors peaceful?

    So far yes.

    - How were the Barbarians?

    I attacked on scout with my scout with 50-50 odds and it lead to me losing that scout. Otherwise nothing special.

    - Any surprises?

    Fast expansion by prince AI's-
