I have a some questions. Thanks for posting the game, it was really interesting! 1) When warring did you build up your force of riflemen into the nearest city and move as one stack. When you start conquering cities what did you do to the injured units, and how many did you leave behind? Would you leave all the hurt units behind healing and move one with the uninjured? Did you fortify until all but a few units are healed before moving on? 2) In terms of reinforcements, as you are building/drafting units do you pool your forces in one place before sending them into the new territory or do you just send them all the to most recently conquered city? Also, I'm unfamiliar with drafting. Do you know any links to good articles on this? 3) When barbs come knocking do you fortify your workers in the city while they uselessly hammer your city? I suppose having extra workers helps put back the improvements. I imagine that gets frustrating. 4) Do you manually control what each citizen is working on in each city every turn? Every turn for some cities? Only in the beginning? I find I get really tied up when doing things manually and end up loosing track of when cities are growing. 5) Speaking to growth how are you controlling the growth of the cities? Whip and manual control of worked tiles? 6) Finally, is your capital the only city you're consistently running specialist? I understand that when going for GE or GM you are spamming those specialists. Sorry for the loads of questions! Great game!
