I'll add another recent game (Like yesterday). Playing as Willem on a Pangea map. Excellent start, techs like crazy, with copper and horses in my capital BFC after the second population border pop. Had 4 nice cities with marble, with the Great Libaray built in like 300 BC!!! Every city had 3 axes as defense!!! Unfortunately I delayed archery and did not build spears. Got chariot rushed by Hannibal (who was on the other side of the world) and lost 2 cities before I knew it. Dumb!
