Stuff happens fast in the turn thread making it hard to have longer term strategy discussions so I'd like to make a few suggestions here. The city sites in the east do look good but the Western one is the only one that gives us new resources. We are at or near our happy limit and since we are going for Mono why not push on through to Monarchy. Then we can improve wine and switch to Hereditary Rule for extra happiness. My usual strategy is to go for writing because libraries kick ass. Whithout it we will have very little that our cities can build. However with Monarchy spamming warriors may be worthwhile. Stone may also put more wonders in reach.
