LK159 - CCM 2.4, Egypt

Not having all the Steamrollers I could have used available made me take 2 turns to conquer S Africa. It helped that I razed some 30+ pop cities and got many workers. Not being able to build unlimited cites also slowed it down. The 3 move Vickers and Harley Scouts are what made it possible.
I still want to reposition some of the S African cities, I did not raze, to get more territory. I will do that when I have Steamrollers available, next turn or later.

I have a large convoy of Steamers loaded mostly with Vickers sailing to our beachhead. They we loaded and sailing to our beachhead before I started the S African campaign. Now I wish I had loaded more Steamrollers and fewer Vickers before they started sailing here.

(To Be Continued)
I can tell our play styles are different.
I would have delayed killing South Africa to get more workers.
My turn was torture due to lack of workers. I couldn't skip 50+ workers from razes.
I hope those steamrollers arrive soon. I was even airlifting regular workers from the mainland to get more help.
I am not sure if the Steamers have enough movement to get here next turn or, if they will be a move or 2 short.
I do not always get workers when I raze a 25+ population city. Plus, I can always raze some Turkish cities for more workers. :D
Ran out of settlers to use on the new continent. :blush: Time to air lift more and maybe rush some in the captured towns.

Here are 2 screen shots:
Spoiler Conquered British Territory :

Spoiler Our holdings on the second Continent :
WAHOO - it is officially wrapped.

For the next game - do we try TheRat's idea of AW? My gut says even monarchy will be very tough. We can't take advantage of trades to keep up in tech. That is usually how we make it through the first couple of ages.
Count me in. :thumbsup: AW is okay.

I think Civinator is close to releasing a new version. If it is not to far in the future I suggest we wait for it before we start LK160.

Maybe make it rainy so there is less desert ;)

GG guys.

Jersey Joe, makes sense to rename Santos to Sleep Walk, given Santo and Johnny did the song.
