    Use this thread to tell us what happened in your game, up to 1AD!

    How has the game gone so far?
    Has the world been peaceful? How many civs have you met?
    How many cities have you built in your area? Anyone sneak in there? Grab land from other areas?


    Stop! If you are participating in BOTM 140, then you MUST NOT read this thread unless EITHER
    • You have reached at least 1 AD in your game, OR
    • You have submitted your entry

    Posting Restrictions

    • Please do not disclose ANY events or information gained post 1 AD.
    • Please do not reveal your final result if that happened after 1 AD.
    • Please do not discuss the location of resources that may not show up before 1 AD. (Iron is OK, coal and oil are not)
    • Do not post any savegame file from the game. Discussions and screenshots are fine but not actual games

    6 Cities, probably will self-found a seventh.

    With so many players, sort of surprised there has been no war yet. I think I will target Boudica at some point.

    Are the roads significant on the land bridges? Or is that just what happens in world builder. (I haven't messed with it)

    16 cities, 71 pop

    I chose to settle on stone and warrior rushed Boudica. Later I killed Spain and France. Oracled currency. No other wonders, mids and GLib should finish soon though. SH would've been nice, but chose to build chariots instead. Planning to move the capital, stone isn't too appealing long term.

    Probably will head for space, although with the enormous amount of land it looks like a long game and haven't had much civ time as of late. :hmm:

    The roads were added by me as part of the theme.
    Gold and horses are a nice bonus for those moving to the stone. I didn't add them iirc; but do like to give players starts with gold and strategic resources available. Lots of production. But only one food isn't great for a capital.

    I'm very late in posting this report--it's almost time for BOTM 142!

    7 cities by 1 AD. I prioritized settling cities near the corners, so nobody has been able to sneak into my block of territory. Willem beat me to the Oracle, but I have Stonehenge and the GLH. The BC has been peaceful, but Sitting Bull just declared war on me at 1 AD. I don't even know where his territory is, yet!
