    Quick question, no immediate bonus - provide a good defensive angle, and allow for certain wonders, But why do these tiles cost so darn much? (Mountain Tiles that its.)

    The idea is that your culture/people would spread to that tile(region) slower

    Ah, cheers for that, didn't know different tiles were accumulated at different speeds.

    Yeah a few thingsinfluence it, its not that they are aquired at different speeds but mountain tiles are aquired last, forests, hills, and rivers affect this i believe (slower spread to forests, hills, accross rivers)

    The auto border pop chooses mountains last because of their inherent lack of value. I'm not sure why they cost so much really, but what Ddude97 said above makes sense.
