    Do worked cottage tiles grow during anarchy?
    Also, do cities starve during anarchy?

    I had an idea of adjusting all citizens to work cottages instead of high food/hammer tiles during anarchy to let the cottages grow to towns faster. Does it work?

    Yep, you have the right idea. cottages still grow and cities do not starve during anarchy

    (note: you can always test things like this with a test game)

    Further question to the OP: sometimes towards the end of the game anarchy for civic changing becomes two turns instead of one. Why is this?

    Regards

    The duration of anarchy depends not only on game speed but also on the size of your empire. I think Kaitzilla mentioned that in his latest Hall of Fame game with 400 cities on marathon it would have taken him 25 turns of anarchy to switch a civic!

    In unmodded BTS, cottages don't grow during anarchy (I did a test game to make sure ;)).

    Good to know. No need to micromanage that. Thanks! (I am too lazy to test myself, sorry :))
