On Prince level, on an island with the Americans to the West, me in the middle, and the Englisht to the East... I play with "Show Enemy and Friendly" moves turned on, so I can see what they're all up to (and let me tell you, usually it's no good). Anyway, first foray the US make into my territory is with 3 axemen. Oh-oh, I thought, this guy's on a mission. However, he wasn't coming to give me a shoeing.. he sauntered past my cities, into the English territory, and made a beeline for the easternmost tip, where there was a Barbarian City slap bang next to some iron...(I know this cos I'd just discovered it. I sent down a squad to take it over, together with a Great Artist, but they got done). Anyway, how on earth did the US know it was there? The only way they could have known was if they'd had boats, which I'm almost sure they didn't. The only other way would be if Victoria had told them, but is that possible?
