    The world is small: 40x50; and it consists of 8 triangles. Seven of them with 6x6x6 sides and one with 30x30x30 sides. The large on is in the middle and the others around it. There are 7 civilizations. Each starts on one of the little islands. All land masses are within trireme reach of one another, but barely. You are the Gandhi of Indians, starting at a less than favorable spot.
    Do you shoot for the stars or conquer the world? More importantly, how do you expand? By attacking others while they are small or by expanding to the one and only land available first? Either way this should be a quick game.

    Game parameters:
    40x50 round known map (8Triangles)
    (You may look at the starting map if you wish so by opening it in map editor)
    Emperor level
    No starting techs (and not a scenario, so tech hiding applies)
    Restarts are on
    Barbarians are Roving bands (-25)
    Games are due on April 5th

    Thanks for a great game, Ali - already having fun with it.

    Just one problem. I've gone for the 're-locate' option. But I don't get the option to build a palace in one of my 'mainland' cities. Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong, please?

    Correct. You must have Masonry to build a new palace.

    Thanks for another interesting map, Ali. But could you double-check this ...?

    I just did. I went into cheat mode and destroyed Romans. Celts appeared on the big triangle.
