    Planning to fill in many additional cities perhaps to about 75 or so including optimal city placement on every island. No trades as yet and hoping to build Colossus on a near-future high trade island city fairly soon - preferentially a Hide demander - with 4 forthcoming Wonder Caravans and to send a proliferation of my own trades to island cities via ship chain, most of the them to Colossus. First island city will be founded next turn with several soon to follow. Preferred tech path once game transitions into building and landing trades: Philosophy then Monotheism with Mike's as the foreseen powerhouse 4th wonder.
