    I think Kait's test run is balanced and gets us to our goals (assuming we go Sailing -> Mining).

    I won't bother figuring out the MM until WT has done his BW beeline testing to see how that looks.

    I should probably give up the save. I'll be busy this weekend with dad duty and Mother's Day so the soonest I could play is Monday. Does someone else want to pick it up? According to the roster, it's Kait.

    So Mitch, how about a short PPP for 0% research. Play until we have to decide.
    What's to decide? where cowboy goes next turn?

    The interesting thing is whether or not to focus on C or FH during those 0% research turns. It kind of all plays together with learnng the tech on the right turn and having enough gold to afford the research. I would hate to focus on FH during that time which might limit when we can learn the tech we want. Or focusing on C and not having things built in time.

    EDIT: What could we learn in those 5ish turns that would change our plan? I don't think the wb will have gotten too far to have a high probability of meeting someone.

    EDIT 2: Are you thinking that the wb might find a 2 gold + wet corn site south which would make Sailing next a moot point?

    yeah I figure the only new info we can get is the south. The rest is too far in the future.
    If there's no place to settle south, then we should probably postpone sailing.

    I could play a few turns at 0% research (whatever the number is that Kait ran to get Sailing). I'd need to know the tiles he worked and the worker MM. Doing this does slightly limit our options though with respect to how much gold we save.

    Maybe the MM is obvious. Cows works hammer tiles to finish Monument ASAP. Science works sheep and horse. The only thing is what to work in Canal and worker MM.

    My gut tells me to sacrifice FH for C to get BW & Sailing ASAP (not necessarily in that order)
    If we don't need sailing to settle south, then BW+pottery.

    Sounds like it doesn’t work. We already improved the fur and it looks like you’re planning to not use them. Let’s hold our horses and run the tests.

    :confused: I'm all over that fur. I don't see a reason to work any other tile until borders. Esp if we don't farm the river.

    Working the fur does delay the monument so I think a lot of saves were working hammer tiles to get the monument ASAP. Not needed though as you said.

    banged one out real quick. BW T37 (might be able to get 36, but instead I got Canal's wb done so it could grow soon --cus slavery)
    borders also expand 37 and wb3 is built same turn.

    Did you find Copper anywhere? ;)

    What are your thoughts on Mining -> BW vs Sailing?

    I think we only do sailing first if we think we will settle ASAP in the south.

    I think we'll settle there ASAP but now I know why you want a few turns of 0% to find whats down there.

    Remember that the real save has an extra beaker OF for what it's worth.

    What? The test game maker didn't give us copper?!? ;)

    cowboy will have to leave the farm unfinished to get to silver in time. If we settle the turn of Anarchy, we can get a free turn on the mine.
    It was 5 turns at 0%

    Silver should have a wb when it settles or 1t later to grow to p2 in 6t. Silver mine doesn’t need to be finished till then. Wkr may have time to finish Cow farm.

    Silver added -9gpt to maint costs in my t32 save. Research dropped to 20% breakeven.
