Normally monument is my first build, but with the Aztecs lately I have been producing a Jaguar first. I figure that they have a slight advantage in early exploration, due to the fact that they spawn in rough terrain (jungle, forest) that their Jaguar can easily traverse through. Because of this, they have an advantage in acquiring all ruins within the surrounding jungle/forest. They're surely not as strong an exploration civ as the Shoshone or Spain, but still. This is why I produce a Jaguar first. Also if I kill an early barbarian with the extra Jaguar, it can help compensate for the delayed culture. I was wondering what peoples' usual build orders are. Does everyone build a monument first, or do some people opt for a scout first, even if they are not an early exploration civ?
