Thanks. Played a bit further than 100BC. I'm unsure about where is best to settle and how to specialize my cities Noble/Normal 800BC Spoiler : I think I'm doing ok. I didn't notice the Portuguese right next to me so I rushed Kublai. My 3 goals are to connect and improve my cities, expand and kill the Portuguese. I'm planning on building a army of swordsmen and catapults to do that. Techwise I went Mining, Fishing, BW, Sailing, AH, Wheel, Pottery, Writing, IW and am now researching Alphabet. I think I'll go for Construction then Code of Law then Civil Service and after that I don't know. Here my civ. This is how I plan to expand.
