Looks pretty good. Is that tile 1 NE of your nothern dot coastal or plains? If coastal I think we have a lnd bridge canal opportunity. Moving city ther allows us to locate a city on finger of land. See blue dots. Get the gems/cow tile first is a great idea, IMHO. That will keep France migrating away from marsh/jungle. Looks like we have a peninsula N all to ourselves with proper blocking. Hers my take on a dotmap to try and get more core cities. 7 of them. I would get the marsh/jungle last and get the producers up first. Sending a warrior S of France will probably get more contacts before it gets too congested in France. Perhaps move gem city 1 SE if still on river.
