    Yeah, the Nubian Archer rush is going to be a crazy good strategy.

    I have to admit, I would have never guessed it ! But I feel like they'll be a little overpowered in the early game.

    I REALLY like the choice. Excellent choice for African Civ.

    Great to see Nubia join the ranks as another Civ newcomer. They are very deserving of a place on the roster. Also nice to have a very different leader depiction. There aren't many hefty leaders, and even fewer with dark skin tones (looking at you Cleopatra).

    They look pretty OP though. Every single ability that was mentioned is incredibly powerful.

    Faster ranged unit production? Check.
    Stronger Archers (which are already OP and required every game)? Check.
    Faster district construction? Check.
    Additional production right from the early game? Checkmate.

    [Edit]: Anybody want to speculate what the new palace wonder will do?

    She is beautiful! And this does look like a fun civ to play. Production and gold bonuses, early faith tile improvement, fast district construction, and improved archer. What's not to like?

    Nubia is a first on Civ series, right?

    How do you think the bonuses, which seem pretty strong, weigh against the apparent desert bias?

    This Civ looks quite interesting at a first glance. So it seems the strategy is going to spam archers and make an ancient era push, then sit on your laurels for a religious victory, with the Nubian pyramids speeding up district construction. That district production boost could be quite helpful in making early holy sites less crippling, since you'll spend less time building them.

    That Archer seems scarily good though. 30 ranged combat & 3 movement? I have to imagine they'll be more expensive.

    Edit: Nubian Pyramids are going to be absolutely disgusting with Petra.

    However, they should have called the "nubian pyramids" "meroan pyramids" ... Because it will fun to read on the screen nubian nubian pyramid (just like the venitian venitian galley.
