Man, I am not liking the Barbs in this game because there aren't any. How am I suppose to get any money from leaders if none ever show up? I'm at around 325BC and have almost the first two islands filled with cities. I found a much smaller island along the southern pole. I have map making but have yet to build my first Trireme. Hopefully that will kick start my fledgling civ into some action. Right now my turns consist on moving my one exporing chariot and whatever settlers are active. I have the HG and Colossus, the Americans switched to and then built the lighthouse a turn or two after I got colossus. Even with HG I am getting angry citizens in cities, but at least they don't come now until the cities are size 3 or so. So, I am very slowly progressing in the game, spending my 20 bucks a turn and waiting for something exciting to happen.
