Hi all, I am still a rookie to the Prince level and am trying to improve my play at this difficulty. I play with random leaders and this time got Alexander. I am playing on a Standard size Big & Small Continents at Normal speed. Here is my start: Spoiler : A very good start. I am thinking move 1E to pick up the fish and avoid having that grassland hill I will be unable to improve without a galley. However, doing that would make me unable to work Clam OR Fish until turn 6 (I think?) at the border pop. A SIP would give me some extra commerce for those first 5 turns. What do you guys think? Also, upon reviewing Alexander's traits, I am considering an early Phalanx rush, considering they can't be countered with Chariots, and also the fact I have the Aggressive trait. I could also aim for Aesthetics to pick up The Parthenon and further my Great Person generation as I am Philosophical. Although I might need to wait a few turns and see what my surrounds are before deciding on a strategy. I have also attached the beginning save. As always, all comments/critiques are appreciated. Thanks!
