Not sure if this is called a shadow game, because I'll just play more or less like I usually do, but chip in if you have any pointers. Joining in on the fun of the latest Lain-game. Spoiler T0-T51 : No resources in sight, I see SW as a possible candidate position for capital due to plains hill hammer, possible seafood and a lighthouse-powered lake. Moving scout NE to reveal the three tiles I can, that I would lose in such a move. Have heard somewhere that you get at least 3 resources in your BFC. Seeing that I have wheat and surely a uranium or something similar on that naked green tile, there is bound to be some resource west, so I just SIP. Spices! Not really suprised as this is a Laingame. Looks like I'll have problems with workerturns, not much to do. I would like to get to BW soon and profit from all the forest, but I feel forced to go agri->TW. Try to get some use from this by going early settler taking some advantage of the IMP-trait, and boosting commerce abit with TW. About here I get a eery feeling that I'm just about to meet Shaka. Also, ocean crabs?? I think I have never seen crabs outside of coast. Very happy to see rice even if it's dry. Taking up fogbusting position. Workerturns and road lines up pretty nice. Justinian seems to be at least some distance away, already have room for at least 4 cities. Phew! Warrior spawn in the north, land seems pretty easy to fogbust. Some hammers into SH to speed up teching. BW is done, commerce is dire, will go fishing next for the lakes+discount on pottery and later crabs. But crabs will come much later as they require borderpop and is uncontested. Capital pops borders, and behind the peak is a pig! Oh yeah! makes for a excelent city 1N of peak borrowing wheat. Justinian is spamming settlers like there is no tomorrow. I get visibility of his teching, it seems like he is shielding me from some other AIs. I kind of like that. If I can get religion spread I'll be pretty safe.
