    I got it. My turn set will be finished before the weekend.

    Do we completely destroy S. Africa, or make peace and attack someone else?

    Any plans for our next city? And what about a colony on the Saltpeter?

    Unless SA can offer something of value, wipe them. Most of your turn will be healing the stack.

    We can put a city by the deer near the capitol. We should start working on that, as it will be a low corruption city.

    How close are other cities to the Saltpeter?

    I do not see any borders close to it. However, there is a lot of fog in the area. Looking at the borders running into the fog, Greece might have the closest city. I would guess that Greece's "hidden city is about as close as we are to the Saltpeter.

    Sorry, LK. Busy week last week. Looks like I missed the save; otherwise I might have been able to play a bit on Tuesday. Still, I should have posted a skip. Odd that I didn't get any email updates for the rest of the week.. last email I have from the forum is from the 29th :(

    Again, sorry about the mixup.

    Weird - the only thing I can think of is the notices got stuck in spam filter.

    Spam folder is empty.

    OH! I think I see the problem. The forum only emails me one update until I visit the forum again -- and it looks like I got logged out. So the visit never registered for the emailer thingie (that's the technical term for it :lol:)

    Culture Win Progress in 180K: 1079/180000

    screenshots in next post

    Notes:
    A trade with the Maghreb to get Mercantilism is possible.
    I did not trade for Medicine. It would obsolete Granaries.
    If the gold I did not spend is not needed for trading, I would rush build in every city. Better that than having it extorted away.
    The small SoD west of Bloemfontein just moved there this turn. Next turn they could attack Pretoria.
    I am in the process of building a road to the Gold by Iron City.
    I avoided trading with Korea. We need current Korean trades to end before we declare war on them.
    Monks are fortified in 180K waiting for us to build either an Opera, or Playhouse there.

    Without checking, 3 are in 180K and one other Monk that was converted in 500AD by Zimbabwe is moving toward 180K. (Still need 1 more Monk to equal the culture given by an Entertainer).

    Glad to see we finally have some monks in 180K. I was very frustrated with the bad luck during my turn.

    We can trade jurisprudence and $71/T to Maghreb for mercantilism. This will open up coffee plantation for 180K. It nets 1 more culture, and 25% more shields.
    After Canberra builds an Australian flag, it can build Sydney Cove. That will trip our golden age. Mercantilism is very much worth it for us.

    That was unreal conquest from JJ. I thought we would need a lot more healing time. The troops were really beat at the end of my set.

    I agree with JJ. Let us use up some of that cash rushing in our low shield cities. Courthouses and research buildings sound really good. We will need to be able to self-research soon.

    This one was really bad, as I swapped with Tusker to work around my availability.
