    This is one of the better series on youtube. Youtube civilization 5 series have gotten monotonous. Interesting watching something playout differently for once.

    As for your starting position, I would have moved 1 tile to the right, since you would immediately had gained 1 production and 1 gold each turn compared to the tile you started working. Losing one turn would for sure had been worth it in the long run. Also at size two, working the dye tile would had been nice too, even though it only gives 1 food.

    EDIT: But then a freaking ruin saved you. :)

    Even though that's my initial thought, is it actually worth it? You're losing 3:c5food:, 6:c5science:, 5:c5production:, 5:c5gold: (in his case) and 1:c5culture: by delaying settling by a turn. However if he didn't get the ruin, his Stonehenge could have been delayed because he may not have expanded to both the Dyes and Citrus.

    I'd do it every time, even though I wouldn't have liked losing a turn of science ofc (but it doesn't matter that much). The gold and production would be paid of in 5 turns... And compared to current case scenario - approx 20 turns until bordergrowth (with monument built) - I would have gained about 20 production and 20 gold extra! Also I wouldn't had lost 1 culture, due to my earlier monument. I would even had gained more culture in the end.

    The thing is also, the first tile one would want is the citrus tile, but there is no certainty that the border will expand to it either.

    EDIT: I don't play with ruins anymore, so in this case, Stonehenge might not had been possible at all without that ruin. I'm not sure one would have had the time to build it working a simple jungle tile for a start (I'm not sure though:)). Building stonhenge would be another reason for me to move one tile to the right.

    It doesn't take 20 turns for your first border, even on Epic (as you can see in his game). Though you just reminded me that it's likely a better move generally on Epic.

    I rarely move at the start, but I'd agree in this case it would of probably be best. I think in this case I was probably just raring to go, and didn't put enough thought into it. I think if I could do it over I'd of probably reloaded the map a few times and make the point moot
