    So we can attack cities with buildings and keep them? Cool. Looking forward to starting the game.

    I'll play right now- thought you wanted to wait for another player, myst.

    Shoot for pottery first? Might just skip hunting.

    e: DMOC, no, we raze every city.

    I wanted to leave a spot open if a player wants to join, not to wait until we find another player.

    Play until a fine stopping point like a tech during the first round, then 20 turns per for 2 then 15.

    Turn 0 (0)

    Settle Amsterdam on spt and seeeeee....



    Wow! I bet Mystyfly's happy at least...

    Research Mining (Dutch start with Fish/Ag)

    Turn 4 (4)

    Our capital's borders expand and a few things happen:

    1- The hut pops and our gift is...



    2- It reveals some tiles- I can hear Mysty whooping from here :D



    Stone- I think we should build the Pyramids and Stonehenge and the Great Wall and the Kremlin and a Hindu Mandir and a Wall and a Castle!

    Turn 11 (11)

    Mining finishes and I set research for the Wheel as it is needed for Pottery (we have the other prereqs as starting techs). I considered Hunting but deer is 4f1h and if we want 4f we can farm a floodplain.

    Turn 13 (13)

    Get 48 gold from a hut.

    Turn 16 (16)

    Taoism is founded in a different land. Oh, and our warrior is killed by a bear.....

    Turn 23 (23)

    Research on The Wheel ends and click on Pottery but this is debatable- we might want to farm all the FPs seeing as we have a lot of early commerce. But Pottery gives us Granaries!!!

    So either Pottery, Hunting or Bronze Wroking next?

    Crap overview of the land:

    Roster (would take on another if someone wants to play)

    Quotey [just played]
    mystyfly (UP NOW)
    DMOC {on deck}
    Atropos

    I think we should build warriors and explore and meet victims. Not really much to do this early.

    About the map: It seems noone is really close and there is a lot of desert. Ah, crap. Could a lurker please check there are 8 opponents?

    :confused: Taoism in the BC time frame? :confused:
    Either you are playing with the ability to assign religions, or it was something else. Can you enlighten the lurkers?

    Why not just have someone (lurker) enter the WB and remove all buildings?
    Interesting variant, btw, lurking with interest.

    I would probably do that- and give a penalty based on the building. But it won't happen!

    Isn't that right?!?!?

    Yup, choose religions. I only mentioned it because it was turn 13. I'm not going to open up to see if the Meditation religion has been chosen, but I didn't see it (may have missed it).

    It's strange because Poly is 15 turns, and the only AIs I know of who research Poly first are Asoka (chooses Hindu) and Saladin (chooses Islam).

    edit: Even stranger: Hinduism was founded after Taoism. Low commerce starts? Some AI went Myst/Med? I always see 13/15 for Med/Poly.

    Looks okay to me. We haven't met any AI's at this point? That doesn't fare well for an early rush.

    BTW, too bad we have stone. :( Can't utilize it.

    And I think we should go BW - Pottery, probably skipping hunting until later. Copper is just too important especially for our variant which requires military conquests.

    Bugger, I'll be on holiday from Firday 4th to Saturday 11th- it'd be cool if we could get another player, otherwise we could play REALLY quick this week then slow next.

    We have a great start with crappy land... got it for tomorrow :goodjob:

    I think pottery > BW is better than vice versa. Since we don't have hunting yet and we have normal monarch barbs I think we can survive simply by fogbusting warriors until a second city claims bronze. Desert is easily fogbusted anyway. I think we should build warriors until size 4 or 5 and then build a settler to get us copper (we need mysticism first for monuments though j/k).

    I vote for pottery first because we'll run into health problems rather sooner than later and we really don't need farms on these FPs, we better just cottage them up. Then we need hunting. Deer is a very nice tile to work (too bad there's no forest :()

    Meeting no AI yet is not as troublesome as usual I think as we play with agg ai and they'll have picked their worst enemy already when we meet them and we're free to attack whoever we want, not who is about to attack us.

    Just to be sure; BUG is allowed? Too lazy to check page 1 :D

    lurker's comment: You can press the F8 key to look at the victory conditions. The "rivals remaining" will tell you how many opponents you've got set up.
