    Glad to hear Sarah's voice again, I've come to associate her with the First looks.

    Golf courses? Bah, I'd rather see Scotch Whisky as a unique, though you'd have to make it a resource I guess?

    His hair's not as red as the portrait made it look.

    Very cool that they're a science civ and that they incorporated boosts to Great Engineer and Scientist points. Golf Course wasn't even on my radar. Interesting that we're getting our second unique recon unit in the same expansion. Nice bagpipes. Love the blue and white color scheme.

    I think Scotland might be swiping my first playthrough away from the Cree.

    What does Robert kick at the very beginning of the video? :eek:

    Golf was invented in Scotland, wasn't it?

    Although I find it an odd choice, to be honest.

    Golf courses to combat war weariness? I laughed out loud at that.

    Do they really have no effect on tourism?

    Robert the Bruce is a bizarrely anachronistic leader for an Enlightenment to Modern era Scottish civ.

    Golf Courses, really? lol

    Interesting to see a civ focused on amenities for once, kinda like that part of it. Having now three civs with bonus movement points for x turns after declaring y type of war now (Persia/India/Scotland) is a bit boring though

    I'm pleased with the Enlightenment ability, but the other directions are slightly disappointing - Golf Course, really? Highlander is a recon unit which I wasn't expecting at all.

    Scotland the Brave is the theme tune, with the obligatory bagpipes.

    @Eagle Pursuit you may have been right about that chainmail. At least he's not wearing plate, but damn it, Firaxis, chainmail is cool!
