Here's the full midset report. I won't have a ton of time to play this weekend, so it will likely be Sunday evening before I can play another 5 turns. I can hand off now if the next player has time this weekend. Pre-turn: I look around and move some troops away from coastlines that are currently outside our culture borders. IBT - we see naval explorers for both Australia and Indo-China move. Renaissance > Printing Press T210 - Move troops towards the jumping-off point. T211 - More troop movements; road is built into the tundra T212 - Road is built to the seal now. Our armada is beginning to assemble - almost ready to load troops! IBT - Indo-China lands a unit next to Marseilles! Big wonder cascade, too. Great Playhouse in Thebes, The Arsenal in Hamburg, and Holy Book Printed in Malinalco T213 - Cataphract runs down the XBow that Indo-China just landed. IBT - PP > Sacred Art (due in 5 vs. Uni in 7) East India Company built by the Arabs T214 - Set Library builds everywhere. Send first wave of ships towards the far shore. Start build of Topkapi Palace IBT - Aztecs complete Neuschwanstein AND Taj Mahal! T215 - The Settler is in place to build the city on our shore next turn; I embark more troops for the second wave of ships (a third wave will be in two more turns).
