@dalamb Spoiler : I would either claim the Sheep by settling 4E, 1N of your capital, or take the wet Wheat in the SW before de Gaulle settles it. After the wet Wheat is taken (by you or de Gaulle), you should look to settle the Cow/Horse spot. The orange dot isn't bad, but it will take Wang forever to settle that way. The spot 3W of the dot is superior (grassland Sheep + Fish are better than Deer and much, much better than excess Fur) and, given the lay of the land, should be guaranteed. Another minor suggestion: try not to whip away improved resources, unless another city can share them immediately. Your capital can churn out Settlers like there's no tomorrow by working all those hammer heavy tiles. There's no reason to pile up the whip anger.
