Birmingham Temple - > Harbor (Im no fishing expert, but this makes more sense in my mind) Disband 3 Warriors, 1 Spearman, 4 Trebuchets, 2 Knight, 1 Longbowman IBT Hippo Marketplace->Courthouse 960 IBT POrtugal and Scandinavia sign peace, Korea and Egypt sign peace Newcastle Hospital->Factory Dover Hospital -> Factory 970 IBT London Hospital->Factory (Im thinking of short rushing it at some point, to start on Hoover) Norwich Hospital->Factory Spice and Saltpeter expire, get Spice from Egypt for Banking 980 IBT Scientific Method, lose supply of wine Renew wine+14 gpt with portugal for dyes and gem Notthingham Hospital->Factory Leptis Minor Temple -> Courthouse Cirta Harbor -> Courthouse Leptis Magna Temple -> Courthouse Lose Iron, Furs supply 990 Get Furs from Scandinavia for Education Get Ind. from Sumeria, for Sanitation (didnt want to give Elec.), dyes and 170 gold The quickest tech at this point is in 6 turns and ToE is due in 5 turns. I start research on Rep. parts, but I will turn it off just before Toe is due and switch to atomic theory Hastings Switched to Factory Rush Factory in London, to start pre build for Hoover IBT London Factory->Universal Suffrage Reading Temple->Courthouse Theveste Temple ->Harbor Warwick,Oxford Hospital->Factory 1000 IBT Lost supply of Incense Iroquois dont want to renew... Have to prevent cities from rioting Coventry Hospital ->Factory Cadiz Temple -> Courthouse 1010 Get Ivory for gems and 21 gpt from Sumer (didnt want to give Electricity just yet, neither coal) 1020-1030 Switch to Atomic Theory and put research at 0. IBT Dutch threaten us, I send them off, Egypt and Sumeria sign against Iroquois York ToE-> Hospital (We get Atomic Theory and Electronics) Theveste Harbor- >Factory Liverpool Heroic Epic->Factory Richmond Harbor ->Aqueduct 1040 IBT Hippo Courthouse ->Factory Leeds Courthouse ->Hospital Birmingham Harbor -> Courthouse 1050 Ok I just noticed that my trick to do part research on Rep parts didnt work, which I didnt know and I find very dumb (it doesnt seem to remember you have spent beakers before, I thought it did) So Replacable parts is due in 7 turns. Hoover in 18. Nobody has Electricity yet, so we are 4-5 techs ahead in any case. The Iroquois got beaten on a lot, and are no longer a major threat. They just discovered Military tradition, so maybe more cities will change hands? Sumer doesnt have coal, and if we dont give them, they will not be a threat either. The only competition for any kind of victory will be Portugal. We can probably beat them square, but we could also attack them a bit to make sure. Unit maintenance is down to 6 per turn, jsut from city growth (except for the initial disbanding) so no need to disband any more units. If we want to attack them, we probably should build Mil Academy first. In any case this game is in the bag, only decision left is to attack Portgual or not.
