    I just started messing around with Archipelago maps a few days ago. Seafood resources on those maps are sick.

    i thought archipelago usually had 2-3 civs per island and if you were alone you could expand via sailing? oh and huts, random events, and vassals are off. barbs may as well be off though :p

    I played it to 1AD so far
    Spoiler :
    Made a big mistake delaying :) techs and not whipping enough, ended up working some unimproved tiles for a considerable time as a result. Production is very poor and health resources scarce, as a result going for Caste too early is just going to make things harder. The Great Lighthouse (4 pop whipped ;)) and whipping like a madman are whats getting me through this so far.
