    Expect tourism to the Richat Structure to increase to the point of it becoming crowded.

    So when do they usually announce livestreams? The day of the first look? Or the next?

    All the livestreams were on a Wed. and they announced them the day of the first looks, at a later time.

    Thoughts on possible Zulu inclusion?

    For me personally, despite them being a mainstay, I think they're less deserving than either Georgia or Canada (neither of which I think should be included at this point in time, but have a fair shot). It seems apparent that, as a civilization, they're probably the least deserving to have achieved entry in the series history (so long as one is okay with a cultural blob civ that represents a group, rather than a distinct entity, such as Polynesia, Native Americans (atrocious depiction, but the cultures that it was meant to represent were more worthy), the Celts, etc.). They've been fun to play as, but we have a lot of similar play-style groups, and Africa (including southern Africa alone) seems like it has more to offer.

    I think they are inevitable, but not necessarily in this expansion. Especially now that we have 1 civ and 1 alt-leader that are warmongers in the expansion already.

    Seondeok's trade delegation may offer kimchi.

    Genghis Khan's trade delegation may offer yak wool and fermented mare's milk.

    Chandragupta's trade delegation may offer rare gemstones.

    Poundmaker's trade delegation may offer beaver pelts, buffalo hide, moccasins, and/or pemmican.

    They aren't something I really wish. I don't really care about them, I only think that there are many better Civs.

    Btw. the Huns are still worse :p

    They will eventually make it in. We have one more Civ that we know will get a unique district. The Zulu at this point will most likely get a unique Encampment, but I don't see that happening now especially since the Ottomans will most likely be coming with a unique Commercial Hub (wishful thinking).

    I had them on my list of guesses for this XP, but between the Mongols and Chandragupta, warmongering seems to be covered for now. I expect they'll show up eventually, though, given that they've always been in the series.

    Italy could have a unique Government Plaza and the Ottomans could have a unique Commercial Hub. Neither are considered complete warmongers, since we got much of the complete warmongers revealed.

    It's hard to imagine the Zulu as anything other than warmongers because that's the role they've always played in Civ. For that reason I don't expect to see them in the same expansion as the Mongols.

    I would be mildly annoyed if it were only kimchi for Korea - too stereotypical. But I don't have any better suggestions of the top of my head (I don't even know what present-day dishes would have even been around in her day)

    Wilhelmina's trade delegation gifts are already revealed.

    "The Netherlands sends you gifts of greeting--wooden shoes, cheeses, and some delightful stroopwafel."

    Looks like no livestream today, I'm disappointed. :(

    Hopefully, there's a wonder video on Friday.

    The livestream may begin in one-and-a-half hours though.
