That time when you think ughhhh, gifting Zara cities..so easy and efficient, but never crossed my mind. Yup so i would def. set my goal to BC, while building up worked great in my game it feels like i could have saved 10+ turns on AI mechanics. I sometimes lose my patience on that, not good cos it's the difference between good and "wow" dates like your Brennus game Engineering i was happy with (self teching), army movement was important for me and Trebs had better odds against longbows. Besides 1 GS for machinery bulb, i had another great person for golden age (mostly for anarchy free switching). I wonder if bulbing Engi can become an option (Gandhi tempts me with fast workers and PHI). Talking about traits, i would not use FIN here. I could barely chop all forests i wanted, where do we take the time for cottages?
