Hi guys, not sure if these are bugs, so just decided to report them here as part of the development process. So far, the things that I have noticed are: 1) Caravans seem *awfully* cheap to buy. Was this a deliberate design choice? 2) I was able to build "Science" & "Wealth" from the very start of the game...not sure if that is a bug or not, though. 3) More of a personal thing, but I'd love it if the different social policies linked into each other-so that you had to definitely get one before the other-like having Aristocracy + Oligarchy in order to get Monarchy, or needing Citizenship + Collective Rule to get Republic....that kind of thing. I particularly don't think Meritocracy should be a first tier Social Policy, but should require a prerequisite. Anyway, hope these points help, but overall I am definitely enjoying the game . Aussie.
