    Oh wow. Haven't even seen something like that on legendary start.

    I've had seven luxes of the same type within a city's 5-ring before on Legendary starts, but never all within the 3-ring. Whack. Hope you weren't planning on building a production-heavy powerhouse for a capital, though.

    Recently I got 8 Wines, Marble, Sugar and Furs (one of each) within the city radius, on a small Earth Map, Prince, normal settings (no legendary start, abundant etc.) Perhaps this happens somewhat often on Earth Maps?

    yeah Earth maps seem to clump up resources a bit more than regular maps.

    Well if nothing else, your citizens should all be very active. Hope that water is fluorinated...

    Agree, looks like you'll be cash rushing a lot in your capital.

    Anybody finds it bit funny the connection between sugar, and that the nation is America, and that there's a specific stereotype of American people... not trying to be offensive.

    I was thinking: how typical for George Washington's capital to be surrounded by plantations.

    What a coincidence. I had a start very similar to this on an Earth map recently, with America as well!

    Here it is.

    I think massed sugar tiles are very common on or near the Nile on Earth maps. It's been a long time since I played an Earth map (I always find the scale jarring, particularly in North America), but I think dyes almost always appear near the Amazon in huge quantity and sugar near the Nile.

    I had a desert start like this once, only it was 7 wheats. 7 River Wheats! :eek:

    I rushed Petra (only helped the non-floodplains, but I had a ton of hills too ^^) and got Desert Folklore, was such a funny game.

    Yea you wouldn't need production. You could eventually buy everything, although you wouldn't be much of a Wonderspammer. Although, there should be a special Candy Factory wonder for that situation :D And maybe a dental office building. :lol:

    for sure. I kept the save and started a different game that I'm involved in now, so I'll come back to this one.

    Did you pop a ruin on turn 0? You have 20 culture on turn 0.

    On Earth maps it happens quite often that there is a ruin in the reach of your starting warrior or even inside the 6 surrounding hexes of the settler.

    The sugar is on top of flood plains; not desert. Plenty of food with every tile paying for itself + Granary + Watermill + Tradition policies
