    In the first attack we should at least half the english in size if you want to make peace a couple of times for techs. Since they only need 60% of the shields, and will experience little waste as their cities are close to each other they can still out produce us. Fortunatly they seem to lack resources and the ai can't fight.

    IBT

    IBT
    English finish Great Wall....
    Egypt is fighting in east but can't see the other civ yet
    Egypt approaches Aydin
    1150BC
    Izmit and Iznik rax->warrior
    IBT
    Egypt attacks Aydin
    1125BC
    Worker completes road for iron
    Izmit riots (sorry)
    Change Aydin to warrior (we might get lucky and survive one more turn). Uskudar could be changed to a spear or archer as well.

    We now have 19 vet warriors and 338 gold, making another 19 every turn.

    Haven't continued this last turn, so team can decide what to do. I reccon we should updrage 5 swords now and send them south. We probably can't save Aydin any more but we can get to Antalya in 2 turns (when no upgrading).

    I think we should make peace with Egypt asap, then take on English. Fortunatly Egypt was fighting NE of scouting warrior, so we should not get al their military. They're only sending warriors for now, so if we get some swords down fast we should be ok.

    To make sure, most units can still move!

    Looks like we're in a little trouble. We'll probably lose Aydin, but I think that we should resettle that location and keep several units there from now on (and maybe build walls). As for the English, we'll have to move straight for London (taking Hastings along the way) so that they don't have the Great Wall anymore. I'd rather raze London thatn keep it, though; unless we wipe out the English, it'll flip for sure, and they'll get the GW back. How many swords do we want for that?

    As soon as we can get peace with Cleo, go for it at any price. Wonder what got in her knickers? Yes, resettle that ASAP if we lose it.

    I agree with going straight for London and razing it. I don't even know if I would stop off for Hastings.

    I would send at least 10 swords to London. Keep the rest at home for defense. Watch the highlands in the east. Lizzy will send her forces into those mountains.

    Sorry, but I haven't started yet. I've had to work longer hours this week, and I've had a cold on top of that. I'll be able to play Sunday, but if that's too long, Empiremaker can take this one.

    0- Start Upgrading. (5)

    IBT- Lose Aydin, it is autorazed.

    1- Hurry Spear in Uskudar

    2- 1 upgrade

    3- Istanbul to settler.

    IBT- Egypt warrior attacks my warrior, we win.

    4- Move settler towards horses.

    5- See Egyptian Sword

    Found Konya on horses.

    Lose sword to warrior.

    6- Kill Egyptian warrior

    7- Continue to move swords towards Egypt.

    IBT- Lose Sword to Egypt.

    Egypt starts Hanging Gardens

    England starts ToA

    2 more Egypt swords.

    8- Egypt finally is ready to talk, but I don’t make peace since it would cost about 128 gold and 2 gpt.

    Hunker down in Jungle.

    IBT- Sumeria completes Hanging Gardens

    9- Total of 4 Egypt swords in the south.

    IBT- Will lose scouting warrior in the south.

    Lose 2 vet swords in jungle to reg swords. Odds were 3-3 per round, so I’m suprised that I lost both.

    10- Kill Egyptian sword, and ours becomes elite.

    Our scouting warrior is surrouded by 4 swords, no escape, so he pillages.
