Archer gambit My intention of the archer gambit is not to completely destroy a civ. The aim is to get one or two workers, kill a settler just sent to build a new city and conquer one city. For that, having 3 archers and 2 warriors is most of the time enough. Then I settle for peace and get mostly all the techs they have, all the cash and maybe one city. The effect is, that they are reduced to one or two cities, have no cash, no workers and therefore are slowed down so much to never become a threat again. Instead they will be the source of techs and cash. For additional info, I am playing mostly on standard maps and monarch or emperor difficulty.
