The reason I chose my spot was for a lack of overlap and the fact it had a food resource and could reach all 3 golds...however, I learned in the last SGOTM not to be against a site simply because of overlap. I'm somewhat against founding a city simply to use the pigs, since I think we planned on using those pigs to allow a super production capitol. That's why I chose a site that fit all 3 gold and could reach fish. Founding on the river would be good as well.
Jenarie: we have not researched the wheel yet, so we can't build roads yet...that also means that once the copper is mined, we'll gain the bonus hammers, but won't gain access to copper yet. That means we can continue to build warriors until whenever we wish to build a road.
Harbourboy: I proposed a scout soon after because early exploration is very important for determining where we can settle, where we want to 'create' or borders at for awhile, and to find our opposition. Since our scout died, we need another unit to do so. We could use a warrior, since human barbs will likely show up soon.
As far as our relations with Khan...he's definitely going to be destroyed sooner or later, as we want all warmongers kept unable to bring any harm to Gandhi. It is somewhat mean of Gyathaar to give us such a great area in terms of production AND commerce when we want to lose the game
Finally, I think after we reach AH, Masonry, and possibly Agriculture, we should rush Writing>Alpha>Mathematics and trade everything away to anyone we know. Alphabet first. The tech pace needs to be furious, and since we don't know WHO will be a good trade partner with Gandhi, we need to trade any non-military techs everywhere as fast as we get them. Alphabet is important because it is the #1 most limiting factor in early AI tech advancement. The faster we get it and trade/gift it away, the faster the overall tech pace will increase and the sooner it will do so.
I say Mathematics early as well because without marble or stone we need some heavy chopping to get the Pyramids and Library...if we prechop the forests between tile improvements in our cities, then we should get Math in time to gain +50% on all chops and build the Pyramids before anyone else does.
