But I've since revisited them, and with a little experience playing as other civs, I see just how powerful America is. I bought a clam tile for 25 gold, and had a promoted scout that could see like 3-4 tiles away. It was awesome. And since somebody made a good argument for Germany earlier.(thought they are still boring.) Polynesia: I love finding early trading partners, but Polynesia just has nothing to follow up. If the moai came earlier then maybe I could so something with them by combining the moai battle bonus with their warriors -10% bonus; but as they are, they are just not good enough. Maybe if the moai could be built on tiles you don't own. That would be cool to make some coastal fortress areas, but alas, it is not so.
