Hello, I'm somewhat new to this site but have been playing Civ for a while. I have a decent win rate on Immortal, and got my first win on Deity this year, although I cheated a bit by having prior knowledge of the map. I'm hoping to start a shadow game and attract some advice from as many people to win Deity "fair and square" for the first time! The leader this game is Julius Caesar, and the map settings are Fractal, Standard Size (with 6 AIs), Temperate Climate, Medium Sea Level, Normal Speed, No Huts/Events; all victory conditions enabled. Here's the start: Spoiler : It looks like there could be several options here. Given that I don't know how much space I have, it seems that one big question is to decide which is more important, the Gold mine or the Floodplains. Upon closer examination, it looks like the south is bounded by coast, so my inclination would be to first move the warrior 1 SE, and then in all likelihood settle 1S of gold on the plains hill. Second city would go south to get the FP. First tech Agriculture, then BW? I'd be grateful for input!
