    I'm glad to finally see a civ that interacts with the new mechanics in more than a superficial way. I do think it's interesting that the golden age bonus is Georgia's rather than Tamar's. Does this mean we have yet to see the leader who interacts with golden ages (and dark ages?) in a unique way, or were the developers simply being imprecise when they mentioned this?

    So meme become Civ :)
    Honestly, I'm little disappointed with their UB and palace architecture. I don't feel Georgian vibe.

    The appearance of Tamar reminds me a lot Tomyris

    It's odd, most representations of her make her quite pale.

    Looks more like Tamar of Pakistan but oh well, they can't get all the leader models right. At least now that we got the meme civ in some people will be happy and it will no longer pop up in every thread so there is that.

    I knew Russia wasn't getting new architecture just 'cause. Looks pretty great.

    Still no Toronto/Kumasi/Carthage/etc. Tease tease tease.

    No YouTube comment toxicity spotted yet. First comment I saw was "aw she's adorable", a few jokes for various civs, a few honest requests for non-standard civs, and a joke about Georgia also being a US state.

    I've met only a couple of Georgians in my life but they looked indeed European.

    I am not that excited about this civ. Mostly faith. Not sure what the impact of the golden age advantage will be though.

    So the trailer was a hint. The Walls in the castle were a hint of Georgia coming. And interesting that they put them up against the Mongols just like in the trailer

    So it seems like she gets the Dark/Normal Age version of the dedication she takes in a Golden Age as well?

    Another civ to deal with envoy too! Needless to say that this will be a leader not appreciated by Pericles or Barbarossa :D

    This is what I'm wondering. I don't think it's likely - we've only got three leaders left, and Tamar is the obvious choice, since she literally ruled during the Georgian Golden Age. But I'd hardly call a flat bonus a really "unique way" of interacting with the system. Maybe they had bigger plans for her that they rolled back on for balance reasons.

    Strange and wonderful. I'll admit I didn't think they could pull this off.

    She's not that much darker than me and I'm as White European as you can get. I think it's a nice looking model.

    We can also see that new palace that was noted in the first screenshots. It seems she shares it with Russia.

    Going by what happened with Korea, her in-game model mightn't be final.
