i prefer waiting a bit longer to build barracks. youre not going to have any improved land to work so my guess is that getting workers out faster is the better option here. btw if you build extra workers in that time youve got to have like 10 by the time you hit IW? any forests left when you start training jags? *update* 1650bc conquest and theres still a few turns improvement possible. i got 2 workers from invading alexander who was right next to me, but i screwed up and didnt use them the best way.
