Last night, as Rome, I was having an awesome game. Started on a small continent and by year 43 I pretty much owned it. 8 Cities 3 of which were barbs that my awesome army had cleared and a friendly Civ to my East. Life was looking good ... until all my workers went on strike! I could not build a farm nor mine nor anything else. Hmmm, puzzling. I spent 20 minutes trying to figure it out until I noticed the row of tiny symbols and numbers top center of the screen that represent your assets said I had no trees. No trees means no farm building, nor any mine building, pretty much no building of anything. I have 77 year old eyes and play on a 15 inch laptop but those shouldn't be excuses. If one expects to excel at this game you will have to BE AWARE of every little thing. Hats off to the devs for building an awesome game.
