Interesting about Oracle. Suppose it's possible to pull off. Need to postpone it for a long while tho, and also postpone CS for 15 turns or however long it would take to tech it normally. Think de Gaulle was building a worker when I attacked, but there was no way of knowing that beforehand as I didn't have vision of the city centre. I was also concerned about a second warrior popping up, whereupon 4 warriors probably would have failed. Put a city way, way down south to (eventually) claim copper. Well, I hope so anyway. Then bulbed Theo with the 67-ish percent GProphet, which ended up down there. Nice with SPI, as I could drop out of a religion and quickly pop borders. Spoiler : Could have gone for the clam site instead, but it would be pretty lousy, and I need to get out missionaries and temples here too, so went for the second ring double-food one instead. Hope we get the copper in decent time. Not exactly ready to start working on cathedrals yet (and need Music). Have five religions already, which is more than enough really. And will also get Taoism. Probably more than I can use, but no matter. City wasn't as expensive as I thought. Maintenance sure is low on these settings Now I must hope the city doesn't flip, that would suck! Btw, thought I was lucky with the settler hut pop, and I was, but then I looked up some games in the HoF by reading the logs. One game got 11-12 huts, including 5 workers and 2 settlers. WTF. How is that even possible. Techs too. Totally nuts.
