Trying to play Byzantines (Monarch/Continents/80%/Standard) and I keep getting (what I think of as) ridiculous maps ... on several attempts, I find myself at (or near) the end of a very narrow peninsula, and by the few turns it takes to get a warrior to the end of it, there's practically nowhere left for me to expand into. I can get a couple of towns (usually), but no matter which Civ (all non-expansionist) they always cut me off. I rarely even get a resource/luxury or two (usually just one). I've played Byzantines once before (Regent/Continents/70%/Small) and had no such problems at all. I mean, I expect to be on the ocean (Seafaring and all), but not so isolated I cannot get anywhere. Any thoughts?
