    Another Continent #1 start...

    OCC Report: You have to be a masochist to try this one OCC. If you do some map investigation you'll find that the Forest one tile to the northeast is a 4-special center spot, but all you know about the specials is what you see: one fish and one hidden under the grass to the south. The lack of a second special or a hut in the starting view does not tell you the exact resource seed either, so it could be 4 Fish or 2 Fish and 2 Whale. Starting so far to the north tends to get you a lot of Forest and "cold" terrain - those Plains and Grass seem out of place. And black-clicking won't tell you the edges of the landmass.

    Thanks for the warning, ElephantU. But everybody knows the Persians are destined to conquer !! (At least La Fayette should know this, since he is playing the Minoans against my Persians in a PBEM) :)

    I beg your pardon: if LF is playing the Minoans, then the Persians are destined to be conquered :goodjob:
