    Well, it's a Classical start, so let's go up to 200 AD for first spoiler.


    Stop!

    A simple report at 200 AD: Three cities, the GLH, and I'm isolated.

    Same. :)

    12 pop, a new settler nearly ready and just got a GS for an academy.

    And the pic in the OP is from a previous game. ;)

    - contender save (Emperor)
    - lucky: received a religion, switched civics to OR
    - lucky: galley survived a barbarian galley attack, could fully heal, survived another attack
    - city placement is difficult
    - not too much trouble with land barbarians (a bear and a warrior)

    At 200AD (1AD actually, because I missed the date, but not much happened since 1AD, I think):
    - could build the GLH
    - 4 cities (1 island); still trying to expand
    - start seems isolated => settle more islands? research currency? build cothons? build colossus? research astronomy quickly?
    - 2nd in "demographics screen gold" (but with the culture from religion it might be difficult to be sure tech will be ok)
    - didn't create a disconnected city (to build cheap warriors after access to iron)

    My Deity game at 150 AD (closest save) is totally different from every else's: 3 cities, 11 pop, GLH completed 800 BC, no AI met. ;) OK, one possible difference--I settled on the PH south of the corn because... why did I do that? I guess to leave the 2nd city to the west better positioned, and for the extra hammer. (And yes, I forgot to revolt the first turn.) Where did everybody else settle?

    > And the pic in the OP is from a previous game. ;)
    Seconded. ;)

    Like many of us, I suddenly find myself spending much more time at home than usual, so I should actually be able to finish this one for a change. I hope everyone, especially my old SGOTM buddy DH, is well. Take care of yourselves. A good way to do that is to hunker down at home and play more Civ!

    Deity, don't have the save at that time but I had GLH built, 7 cities, no AI met.
    Settled 1W for more food and switched to Slavery bot forgot to switch to Monotheism :(. That cost me 40:hammers: on GLH and some more on other buildings. Probably close to 150 across the empire. Would probably have had 2 more cities with snowballing.

    Decided to settle in place once I noticed the fresh-water grassland 3 tiles north.
    1N1W would mess up my 2nd city and have a slower start.

    Tried the Deity save at the 11th hour and was lucky enough to get Judaism.
    It was 60% chance to get a religion?

    Anyway, got The Great Lighthouse after founding 2nd city, and I am going for Colossus in capital and Hanging Gardens in my stone city I think.

    Well, not quite. The pic is correctly the small map from 189. But when I click on it, I get the big map from 182.
    I don't know why that is happening. Maybe something got overloaded or a link isn't working right.
    :(
