Thanks guys! I honestly can not emphasise how much I appreciate your advice Just forgot to mention, Jao is on the islands to my west, I think Kubali is up north and Ramses is pretty close to the East. Goals for Tomorrow: -Scout nearby land for some more city spots -REX towards Ramses and block him off from my land. -Then settle those islands and block Jao off completely from settling on my coastal area for a long time. (that friggin' *******) Possible Ideas: (Please Let me know if they suck ) -Turn London into a GP farm -After writing, go for Oracle>MC as pigswill has said. The Colossus may end up being really helpful if I do end up building on lots of islands (Tis a shame I'm not financial ) -Build TLG in London. (Will building a forge first be better or just going straight to TLG if in a rush?) -Expand onto all of the islands JUST to stop Jao and block him off -Eventually, find Kublai, take him out and keep Ramses as a trading partner for a bit. -I'm thinking domination win here.
