    In GOTM 176 you play Cleopatra of the Egyptians, who is religious and industrious. You start this Deity-level game with Ceremonial Burial and Masonry, and you build War Chariots instead of chariots. GOTM176start.png

    An interesting start! We're tied up Civ-II-like between the Cattle and the Wheat. But with Industrial Workers, I guess we'll have the Four-Turner up and running soon enough. The extra Commerce and Happiness from Incense will come in handy.

    no barbs and archipelago -> it seems we can fully focus on growth and expansion at the beginning. I wonder how large our starting island is and if the AI can reach us with galleys. I don't know how good the chances are of getting the Great Lighthouse on Deity ...

    I will settle in place and build a temple immediately. My goal is a single city cultural victory, and on Deity I know my dreams will not last into the AD years.

    It is indeed a very nice spot for 20k. I might just do the same!

    I'm not confident at deity, but I'm giving it a go. With one more BG (maybe under one of those forests!?), I think this site would be a 1T worker pump outside of despotism.
    Republic isn't as good in PTW as in Conquests, right? Maybe I'll switch to monarchy and then to a democracy for a peaceful game. Research will be to map making and lit, might have to research monarchy myself because I'm not sure what I'll have as trade fodder at that point.

    PTW Republic isn't as good as Conquests Republic, but the GOTM doesn't use standard rules. One of the rule changes makes GOTM Republic play like Conquests Republic. Pick your government just as you would in Conquests.

    Thanks, I can see that rule on the gotm webpage. (If only I would have read it ;).)
