    Monuments provide decent culture at the start of the game , but usually I prioritize my military and settlers over it , how many monuments do you guys tend to build in a game ?

    Every city should have a monument built just for the progress thru the civic tree. In fact if the city has fresh water, it's higher priority than a granary.

    Every single city you own. When I capture a new city, 95% of the time I build or repair the monument straight away. Founded cities it usually takes me longer to work through a list of higher priority items, but not always.

    Culture fast is important and that piddly 0.3 per pop just does not do it.

    A slarcher start is great and makes up for it if foes are near. I just get tired of playing slarcher and a monument is a good starting option in a remote position. Might save me some tile gold too.

    And when you fix your income issues, you can just buy them. They're dirt cheap for the benefit they provide.

    Monuments are almost always my first build in a new city, and every city gets one.

    Depending on your conquests (if you're wa warmongering), or if you need a Commercial Hub or victory district before, Monuments can get delayed in satellite cities.

    Ultimately every city gets a monument but I will delay them in favor of districts or troops in many cases.

    Theyre the most efficient building in the game for the cost. Pretty much every captured city repairs there monument first because it only takes a turn usually and settled citys you just want to sneak it in in between important stuff when you can.
