BOTM 212: Huayna Capac of Inca. You will play as everybody's favorite leader, Huayna Capac of the Incan civilization. I made this on Earth Day, so I started by planting trees... maybe went a bit overboard? You decide. No pesky barbarians, and you start with a Worker. So that your worker might more quickly have something to do, I gave you Hunting in addition to the normal starting techs (mysticism & agriculture). Since you are at Prince difficulty level, remember that it is a competition against other CivFanatics players moreso than against the AI. But you should all have fun no matter what!
