    Get your cities as fast as possible and don't worry about maintenance too much. Your absolute beaker count is far more important than your science slider. People here win games with the slider temporarily down to 0%.

    To sustain empires with more than ~6 cities Currency (+1 trade route/city) and Code of Laws (Courthouse, halves city maintenance) are key technologies.

    Early and often. Dual priority with guarding them.

    Get as many cities as you can defend.
