My first game in GnK was with Boduccia, and I won confortably in immortal, so I moved to deity / Austria every setting standard. The game is not finished yet, but the ability is just awsome and I am winning. In deity the city states are bigger than your capital, and have good location (tough not the best) ofthen with a natural wonder. My first marriage bouth me the new NW mountain with 8 faith / turn. The third bougth me an ARMY of units I did not even had access to yet. I am not using patronage at all, commerce gives me the credits I need, along with science and more happiness (both buffed in GnK - commerce tree) Best new civ Imho.
