    I am ok with Economics next (though I also like the idea of heading for Cavalry) I think in 4-5 turns we should also start more Universities. We still have some tech that can be gained in 4 turns, but will need more science when these run out so the advancement to Rails is all 4 turn stuff.

    I was trying to squeeze in a few science boosters at all times. My emphasis was cities that generate more commerce (rivers, the tobacco city near capitol, etc). All the courts and admin centers also help a little bit with more science.

    Ya we have some still in progress from your turn, but I didn't start any new ones as I felt we needed troops, especially to make any progress on the British/Israel front.

    IMO when a city switches from Obs / Uni to troops, another should start on Obs / Uni. We are still at risk from losing for how far back we are on the tech tree.

    We met China somehow, so I declare war on them.









    Handoff notes:

    Hmm, we've discovered a Korean Camel colony. We don't know Korea yet -- do we wait until we meet them, or declare war by razing the colony?

    We have a few Frigates in Hillstreet Blues available to discourage some of the trash bombardments. We also have some in the inland sea near Belo Horizonte. They don't hit much, but they've managed to ping a couple of bombardment missions.

    On the western front, we've taken Dover. We can take Southampton next turn, either raze or wait on Bristol, and then start sweeping north and east from the coast.

    In the Rabat area, I've been rebuilding our forces. It's not 100% steady, but I think we're ready to start pushing again. I have a stack next to Al Jadida for next turn.

    Also, I have an Asian Musketeer in place to pillage the road to Xochicalco next turn. This will cut off the visible path between us and Aztecs/Mexico. That should simplify the battle on our side of the monster mountain range.

    There were some Supply Shipment units on automove. I left them alone, so there might still be a few going.

    Also, be warned: The Explorer near Sara Buri spotted a Lawyer near Tamuin.

    An Outpost was nearly built N of Old Turkey, but an enemy Lawyer interrupted it.

    We're getting 4-turn research at 40-50% science slider, getting 600-700gpt. We need 9000+ gold for each Safe steal. Looting 2000 gold from British cities helps, but it will take a bit before we can get back to tech parity.

    I pondered building Granaries in some of the newer, smaller cities, but I figured with Medicine coming soon, it was better to wait for Hospitals.

    The 'Always War Game' now received an additional handicap for the succession players, making the game beeing played now mostly without any 'barracks-buildings' even more interesting. :)

    Mega :aargh::aargh::aargh: on researching Military Tradition. I guess I didn’t stress enough to avoid this disastrous tech. :wallbash::wallbash::wallbash:

    Glad to see a steal work. That helps with the tech gap.

    It looks like we can grab 2 British cities in the corner. From there, I would like to get that city from Brazil. We still need to find at least one more city from Brazil since that isn’t the capitol.

    We haven’t talked to Korea, so we are NOT obligated to declare war. I would retreat from that area for now.

    Maghreb is almost dead. Hope they can die before my set.

    Yeah, I'm super kicking myself :mad: That was a big research blunder. :blush:

    I got it.

    Looks like Al Jadida is the only Maghreb city left. Hopefully its capture will finish off the Maghreb and pacify the population there.
    I plan on using our Great Leader to build the Military Academy in Al Jadida. It will give us a barracks close to the northern front.

    Also, I plan on capturing Southampton followed by Bristol (I am not waiting for it to grow) if it is razed so be it.

    Based on a border we can see, there is a Brazilian city west of Brasilia, across the sea. Also, over there is a blue border which most likely is Egypt.

    I might build a road from Dover to Santos so troops do not have to cross a river to attack.

    We discussed Mil Trad, but that was when Elephantium needed a skip. We ended up getting it about 20 turns early, so not a huge difference. We were going to run into it fairly soon anyway.

    I do think we can concentrate on the science buildings now. Fortunately, I was concentrating on units before we got mil trad so we maximized our forces before this.

    We killed off France already so I guess we wait for communism for more vet troops./

    Oh we should use weak units to convert Cavalry from reg->vet when chance of dying is low. This can allow most units to reach vet with lower risk when doing so.

    Notes:
    • I changed many scientists to tax collectors for the coming turn, hoping to raise enough gold to allow attempting an Immediate Steal of Railroads.
    • Since S. Africa and Britain have Adventures they know Railroads.
    • On my last steal S. Africa was the cheapest.
    • I prefer immediate steals to safe steals because for the price of 1 safe steal I might get 2 successful immediate steals.
    • Becareful of Adventurers, their movement is not reduced when they are in our territory. They still move 3 tiles. Currently, some of the British Adventurers can reach either Gloucester or Exeter.

    UGG - I did NOT want war with Korea. I guess I wasn’t clear enough with my comment to retreat from the area. We don’t need more wars. We have too many to manage.

    Good riddance to Maghreb.
    Glad to see a tech stolen from England. We have never had our golden age. We need to build a GB somewhere, but it isn’t viable to plan until we are closer in tech.
    I see another tech steal from Nubia. The tech gap is closing. :)
    The tech steal game is really going well with Israel also helping.

    I do not think Israel is ahead of us in Tech anymore.

    I built enough Hospitals so we can use Battlefield Medicine as a prebuild.

    The Brazilian capital is west across the sea from Salvador. Given the amount of enemy ships in that area, I think (other than having another civ conquer it) the best way to remove Brazil is to go over land through the British.

    Excellent work.

    I think that was 3 successful steals?
    It is good to see we can still make forward progress on taking cities.

    For our GA, do we want to wait for barracks/communism if we can, or just get it ASAP? We will get a lot of regular units if we started it earlier. Not sure which I favor if we do have a choice.

    with a failed attempt in the middle :sad:
    I favor starting our GA ASAP. We need the cash to rush Steamrollers. A railnet will allow us to concentrate our Army and not have units guarding against invasion in areas like former Turkey, France, and our homeland. Also, we can use the few "Barracks" we have to heal troops in 1 turn.

    Here is something to consider:
    The total beakers spent to learn Democracy (in 4 turns) is about the number of beakers spent in 3 turns trying to learn either Steel, or Imperialism in 4 turns. Therefore, after learning Explosives maybe we should study Democracy (for 8 turns) and try to steal Steel and/or Imperilism.
