Hey all, tried this map a couple of times and got spanked. Figured I'd try again, moving a little more slowly and see if any of you guys had some useful input. Here is my start and a few turns: Spoiler : I Settled one southeast on the plains hill. Chose animal husbandry as my first tech, I start building a warrior. There is a goody hut to my southeast so I send my warrior for it. They give me an envoy Spoiler : Meet Amanitore, get the first meet bonus for Kabul, and I'm just able to beat Nubia to the next goody hut, who gives me the boost for Archery. Getting it also reveals a nearby barb camp, so I send my warrior to it, hoping that Kabul's warriors will weaken it enough for me to yoink it. Spoiler : A barb scout comes out of the fog and my second warrior dings him. Yay for early barb troubles!! The save is attached if anyone wants to play along.
