    Sorry, my holidays are over :( had to pick up the wife from the airport...she went to Bali for 10 days. And now she's back! And I'm back to work tomorrow...

    But got time for a quick look, your plans are solid jeffah, I can't think of anything better....maybe something to protect our cities, every dude seem to be walking around chasing barbs.

    Tomorrow, before this time of day, I give some ideas or maybe just agree. :)

    Hmmm. Too bad it's an inland sea, but at least we can forget going for ships for a while and focus on land development.

    Ok, NC in 3 turns, then I want a settler ASAP, to red dot ON the sugar. Since we're starting the camp on the fur, I'm gonna chop the forest when the camp is done, to put into a settler. We have enough hills to keep up the production in the cap.



    Yellow dot is kinda meh, but in the long run this will be a rich city and I think we want that sooner than later...4 sugars and decent production, when the borders are spread out.

    But red spot is "spot on"! HAHA...erh, well 6 extra horses and silver doesn't sound bad AND 2 wheats and 4-5 hills. Just one of those lovely sites we JUST have to get.

    I can sell our only sugar but that would put us in red in 3 turns, so we wait until the furcamp is finished in 5 turns.

    So I vote for a settler there, right after NC.

    Tomboucto will be deforested to get a couple of quick horses, just in case...after the road is finished there.

    SP is nothing to worry about yet, but I think we want to fill out liberty, when we can get more policies?

    Teching, we are on maths, but do we want Hanging Gardens? I doubt we can get it, the AI is pretty fast on that case. So after Maths, maybe BW-IW, I'm always curious if there is some iron withing our borders. Or do we want to get further to Education?

    I'll play tomorrow this time, so give me some advice. :)

    I just figured we would beeline straight to chivalry, it will go a lot faster once we get the NC. We don't need swords if we've got mandus ;)

    Fair enough, can we research it faster than a GP? I'll check that as an option, when I play tomorrow.

    If noone has anything to say, I play my turns tomorrow. I play them anyways, but might use late ideas, IF they are superiour of our current path!

    This game just have to move on.

    I agree with this. We really want to get those Mandus out asap. The only detour I might suggest taking is for Bronze Working to get Barracks but that only will take a couple turns. I don't think we want HG, the extra food will just give us happy problems. I only put it on Math because it was in line to Chivalry which I think is our target tech.

    I love the red dot location. I want some Horses! I thought about waiting to get Representation before founding it but that will take 25 turns and I think we want the city up before then.

    Another note on policies. Once we have 4 cities up, we need to get Monuments in all of them and then get Legalism, even if it means waiting to finish Liberty. That will give us 4 free Mud Pyramid Mosques which will be a big boost to culture. I think that means our SP path will probably be: Representation in 25 turns, Legalism, Meritocracy (to finish Liberty), then our next tree.



    I'm not super fond of the yellow dot although it is ok. I added a green dot where another possible decent spot is. You can't see it on the image but there is a grassland Stone and a grassland 4 Horses just below the dot. It also has a ton of forest for chop-rushing early buildings. We could do either of the spots or even both if we wanted.

    Preturn: A few units still have movement, so let's move them. Warrior takes out barbcamp south for 75g.
    Worker start camp on the furs and another is roading towards Tomboucto. Sell sugar to Alexander for 240g,
    we will be unhappy for a couple of turns soon, but that's a price I'm willing to pay.

    Lock in current citizens and set focus on production in Cap and gold in Tomboucto.

    Turn1: We meet Dublin to the south.

    Turn2: Tomboucto scout -> Horseman. Kill our scout near Rome, Caesar won't give OB at a fair price.

    Turn3: Gao National College -> settler in 5 turns. We are at -1 in happiness...for 2 turns I think.

    Turn4: Wrong, by clicking on the worker this turn, he connected the furs and we're happy again.

    Interesting, Rome wasn't after us, he just declared on Cathy and he is allied with Kuala Lumpur too.

    We learn Mathematics -> Civil Service in 10 turns, we can get BW whenever we want to.

    Micro our new citizens in our cities to gain a few gpt.

    Turn5: Sell OB to Hiawatha for 50g.

    Turn6: IT, Hiawatha wants a RA for 200g, I say yes as we have 540g in the bank.

    Then we kill a barbcamp to get 75g back. :) We also get that mystery worker, it belongs to Ragusa...or rather
    it belongs to us now. He will come in handy in our new city.

    Turn7: Hiawatha wants to declare friendship, I disagree.

    Turn8: Gao settler -> stable in 7t.

    Turn9: Nothing really, except that Belgrade and Hanoi wants us to remove some barbcamps. Belgrade is pretty close
    and our first horse can go there and have a look.

    Turn10: Nothing. That was some quick turns.

    We haven't met 2 AI's, so we should look around. But they didn't come to us, so they might be on another landmass.

    I'm chopping a forest at Tomboucto, that should go in to another horse. The horse next turn, should go and inspect the barbcamp near Belgrade. If we take that, we be friends and will get at least one unit from them.

    Civil Service due in 4 turns. No screenies as nothing happened, only a CS south and another one north.

    I think Tomboucto should build stables after another horse.

    Hehe, ok. But couldnt we settle between the two rivers? It would surely provide even more good tiles.

    We could, but settling on the sugar will give us back the sugar I sold, and it's on a marsh too, so we will get one turn of unhappy atm.

    Red spot!

    Any thoughts about builds or science?

    We won't make this city a super-city in a while, so just settle a town there and we work things out.
    I see your point about a better settlement, but we don't need that right now. We're talking about domination and domination is Red dot.

    Well, well, ok! Maybe it's just that I have no victory focus. Ever. :)

    Looks good. We should get Chivalry in about 30 turns so we need to get ourselves ready to go to war then.

    Gao should probably build a Stone Works after the Stables for a few extra production. Tombouctu could probably just build another Horseman after the current one finishes.

    I think we should go ahead and research Bronze Working after Civil Service finishes and then go for Currency. That way we can build a Barracks in Gao after the Stone Works. After that Gao can start cranking out Horsemen and Mandus with maybe another Settler thrown in as well.

    It looks like we still have 13 turns for a policy but I still vote for Representation when that pops.

    Yeah, good idea.

    Hmmm. At this point someone might start asking for friendship or wars. I'll turn them down if any arrive.
