    Formidable. I may have a little time to spare. I'm guessing we should be thankful for starting by a river, but there must be a food bonus somewhere out there.

    I think I just won another level in the who-has-the-worst-computer competition.

    It's Regent, so still very, very winnable without a food bonus guys.

    In fact, I'd guess at floods E,SE too. That would be Steve teasing us with a nearly-4-turn factory. 3 floods and 2bgs gets us +5fpt, 5spt for 5 citizens.

    I guess, everybody is still spoiled from the half dozen cows in GOTM116... :D

    Honestly, guys: food bonus! What are you thinking? Anybody still remember GOTM102, where we started on an island with only plains and hills and no fresh water? I think a cow, 1-2 grassland and two fishes had actually been the only tiles on the entire mini-continent that had more than 1 food... (meaning lots of size-3 towns for most of the AA... :crazyeye:)

    Yes, I remember **shudder** GOTM102. It was the first GOTM in which I participated (thought did not submit). And by participated I mean the warlord AI kicked my arrogant butt around the map. :cry:
