    All instructions must be posted in this thread. Not links, the actual instructions. We make a special case for polls sometimes, but it's not that hard to click edit on a post, select all, copy, cancel; then edit the post in this thread and paste. :)

    Not instructions, just some suggestions from NE to DP:

    Munich:
    Build queue - finish current build, then always military units (pikemen, if no
    others required)
    Work force - change one farm to hills ( 1F 3H).

    Berlin: if/when war weariness goes down priorise grow.


    Best regards,

    I've waited for the Warlord to post any instructions but I have to post my instructions now. If the Warlord asks for other instructions in the cities that I control then I let the choice up the DP which instructions to follow.


    Cumae
    Build Queue: Finish University -> Observatory
    Workforce: once matured to size 9 place new citizen on hill SSE of Cumae

    Neapolis
    Build Queue: Finish Bank -> Granary -> Forge
    Workforce: when the bank is finished (5 turns) change citizens so Neapolis will grow

    Pisae
    Build Queue: Finish University -> Observatory
    Workforce: once matured to size 8 place new citizen on hill E of Pisae

    Marseille
    Build Queue: Finish Library -> Confucian Monastery -> University
    Workforce: once matured to size 5 place new citizen on hill SSE of Marseille


    Worker Assignments
    Workers NW1 and NW2 will soon be done mining + roading the hill SSE of Marseille. Once they are finished move them to the forrested plains S of Coppertown and build a farm + road there. Move the 2 workers SW of that tile when they're done and build a farm + road there too. Move them SW once more (= SSE of Rheims' city center) and build a farm + road there too. Irirgrate the tile S of Rheims' city center too and spread irrigration from Rheims to Marseille while saving as many trees around Rheims as possible.

    correct, I'm on mountain standard (Arizona doesn't do daylight) so convert to pacific to not confuse others -- and then forgot to say daylight. :lol:

    The GMT time is correct though, so I'm starting.

    Session ended after 8 turns:
    • Traded resources with everyone left alive
    • Rome killed off Germany
    • Researched Constitution, Democracy

    • Taj Mahal in 1
    • Civics change available
    • Lost Angkor Wat, but got some gold
    • Treasury now 1200+ at +20gpt or better (could run negative but not much benefit)

    Well played DS :) I am wondering where the warlord is, I have seen no instructions here.

    I agree on settling the coast, and I think we need to prepare the War on Rome for next turnchat already.

    Looks good but Rome has quite some units. What if we declare war and let them come to us, kill his stash of units and then move in to his territory?

    While I can't see the game, it looks a good play.
    And my suggestion (or instructions in previous sessions) was, in Munich,
    military units and, just if no War Officer chooses, pikemen.
    (War Officers are, in order, Warlord,Chieftain,DP).
    My congratulations!
    Best regards,
