    I should put a link to the save here

    Members of the group loosely called a government should post their instructions here. Others may comment as desired, given we're so few we end up having conversations with ourselves. The scary part is when we answer ourselves... :eek:

    Declare war on every civilization. We win the demogame if we can kill one hundred units.

    Trade Clams to Mansa Musa for Gold, or if that fails some other resource.

    Do not declare war on anyone. We can't kill 100 units at this time. Don't agree to go to war if someone asks. Other trades are up to the DP.

    Stop TC if someone declares war on us or if you play 10 turns.

    Instructions are to myself, so this is really just to reveal to the citizens how I'm planning to play it. It really would have helped to open the save before writing instructions. :crazyeye:

    Science: if we're researching something the others don't have, continue it. If not, choose something we need to eventually get mass media.

    Workers: if we can railroad, give priority to railroad tiles which increase hammer production. If not, priority goes to cities which have higher working population than developed tiles, with emphasis on increasing whatever the city currently has the most of (food surplus, commerce, hammers).
