I'm glad you enjoyed the last writeup, Sullla. I had fun composing it. Some recommendations after another look at the save. 1) Buy Hannibal's World Map for 5g. He didn't think much of our Economics trade, but that's just because he's too foolish to notice that I backstabbed Wang immediately afterward. 2) Research Astronomy and whip Galleons off the eastern seaboard. (I think there's a galley in Mound City which will upgrade in-queue to a galleon. Time to rock 'n' roll. 3) I'd attack Hannibal first. Why, because we're incorrigible backstabbers! No, seriously: While I agree with Sullla that there's really no way we're going to lose this one, I want to make it as easy on ourselves as possible. Only Hannibal is currently at peace. I think we can win by taking Carthaginian, Aztec and Spanish lands in that order. 3b) Also, Huayna and Isabella both have Divine Right. Maybe one of them will build Versailles for us. (Will it even matter by then though?) 4) Initial assault tactics: I'm no tactical expert, but I'd probably land at least 4 galleons (half rifles, half trebs) on the marble SW of Thapsus. We can absorb some initial impact, and get a city we can keep. Then, I'd sweep down the coast and grab Carthage after taking at least one more coastal city. 5) I'd probably keep the coastal cities (trade routes) and Carthage (some food, trade). I guess keep Utica (Mausolleum) and Hadremetum (decent food). I'd raze Kerkouane though. Too much cultural pressure. 6) I think we should switch to Free Market and Free Religion while we have full galleons sailing over to the other continent. We'll probably have negative income with so many units outside our borders and without the Colossus. Good to pass those turns in anarchy. 7) I'd probably plan to have at least 500g in reserve when we start our assault. We don't want surprise unit deletions before we hit our stride in the capture/pillage economy over there. So increase research to get Communism sooner. Remember that Cahokia is in a slave revolt this turn. Our actual income is about +20gpt at 100% cash, not -70-something as it appears in the save. State Property will probably come in early in Sullla's turnset. Take it away, Zeviz!
