FWIW, the AIs love to snipe a copy of the player's natural monopoly lux. The location has Deer and is on river, and not that close to your cap. Not a bad spot at all really. Fine place placement for your CBs to train up. Not too close to Shaka. No reason to raze it. Look at it as a gift.
Exactly the way I took it. As well as Japan.

Not that Kasbahs are that good in the first place, but I am not really sure where to put them on this map... ;)

umm... I had a game as the Songhai where I spawned in the snow? Biases are harsh.

It might be a good moment to move my spy out of Sukhothai. I am not sure he will live long enough to steal another tech...

The shenanigans continue...
For starters, England is "perfectly balanced" on these kinds of maps...

And secondarily... is twenty turns too short to obliterate two of the largest civs?

Screenshot is less funny, more demonstrating my pain.
I decide to start Small Continents Venice, on a small map.
turn 2, I ask myself "Wouldn't it be funny if Shaka were right next to me"
Turn 5:

Turn 8: Meets Attila as well.
Turn 10, from Attila: Hey, wanna declare on Shaka.
Me: Gives up.

Is this Trireme magic or something?

Just the one tile. No others, all my boats can pass through it.

This is a... rather strange bit of terrain. Seems more like the Schluchsee than an oasis...

My jaw dropped when I first saw Washington's unit. Poland isn't in this game. Then I vaguely remembered about gifts from Militaristic City States, like Almaty.
Apparently, Venice got some of those donations also.

Not sure how Venice's one-city thing is coded, but... it was taken by a the Aztecs and I liberated it, and Venice is now itself a puppet owned by... itself.

Venice can never annex any city but the fact that they can't retake their capital and use it normally looks more like a bug. They probably didn't realize how unrealistic and bad it is.

The final patch doesn't correct this so we have to live with it. When Venice, don't lose capital or it will be hard to win (but not impossible at all).

First of all, this is one of the strangest maps i've ever spawned on:

And, Augustus Caesar, I swear that one of these days, I am going to kill you.
