    Govenor Oldbus is about to begin work on the Globe Theatre in Fort Impervious, so this may be the last chance to offer opinions and advice on the creation of a GP farm there.

    Personally, I know there are cities with greater potential food output, but aren't suitable for other reasons, so FI is probably the best candidate.

    Lets talk about what we dont need...

    We dont need religous GA. no religion hence no need for a Shrine.( could change if we get Islam..but talk of that appears to have died)

    We dont really need Artists. Since we are creative and not going for a cultural victory, an artist woudl only be used for tech or for super specialist. A culture bomb won tbe too useful since none of our cities except fro those bordering Berlin would benefit.

    Engineers and Scientist are the two most likely to be used. I think we could use another acedemy or two in some of our high science cities. The rest could be dumped as super specialist or use to discover techs. Engineers are great to help on wonders fi we chose to go "Wondering".

    I would say a mix of scientist and engineers. If we need a Religious leader...we slow down this GA farm so another city can produce it or build in the capability here to switch to almost exclusive religons GA points.

    Unfortunately, of course, Globe Theatre gives access to GA. Also, FI can already produce a GA, but not any of the others.

    As I see it, if we want a Scientist I need to build a Library, for a Merchant I need to build a Market and for an Engineer I need a forge. I'm less happy about the forge for health reasons. I'm game for either of the others.

    I wouldn't completely rule out Artists (esp if FI manages to have more population than will support Scientists or Merchants). If anywhere else (eg BW) looks like produceing a specialist we can go for a golden age, or I've always liked the culture bomb. Basillica (or Const Falls or FI) would not harm from having a culture bomb.

    EDIT: robboo - I see you already mentioned the culture bomb bit above. D'oh!

    If your plans of taking Berlin go through, that GA will look great in the middle of German territory.

    We COULD run caste system, but I think it's to expensive and we'll lose slavery so it's no good.
    Are you planning to build National Epic by the way? It will give even more artist points.

    What's wrong with losing slavery? And I thought you still needed the building (like library) with Caste System.

    That would seem to make a lot of sense. We're some way off that at the moment, but I'll bear it in mind.

    We could go for a GP, then get it to research divine right-therefore giving us a religion.

    Interesting. Presumably we would need to make sure we finished/acquired Philosophy and Theology before that point (and hope that no-one else founds Islam :( ).

    It could make the game very interesting if we can get Islam with enough turns to spread it to Germany and Russia before another Civ arrives.

    Yup, well by the time we'd finish them we'd probably have finished the GP. Also if we did get Islam then with Theocracy we'd be getting extra exp.

    edit-we need monarchy as well.

    Research path is already set at Machinery+Philosophy.
    If we want to go to war though, we could try to get CS instead to make macemen.
