    UN seems late, and expensive and then there's the time waiting for the vote turn. But, yeah, maybe some more thinking on that.

    Tech: Our goal should be to run research slider at 100% the enitre game-- once SH gold comes in. We will be doing G.Wall somewhere every turn after stone.
    Probably build 6 Moai, several Mids, etc. Ideas on how to get gold before Henge?

    I favor Pyramids going at Cows.

    There are 2 plains hills we can mine, and it is a strong production city with levee later.

    The only question left I know of is if anyone is thinking wb1 should go to Canal.

    The main motivation to study SB’s land tiles was to see if that area is blocked off to our exploring work boat. I was hoping to figure that out in answer to your question.

    So you are thinking about a wb to go through Canal and the east, right?

    So that's three exploring wbs (one of them short term).

    1. NW-W by whales
    2. N-NE to check out the land up there (temporary scout)
    3. NE-E to see if we can get past SB's northern borders (could be a temporary scout)

    We should prioritize these and all of the fishing nets we need so that we can plan accordingly.

    Ok. At present I don’t have enough data on SB. Pretty sure the creative AI did not get Buddhism or Hinduism.

    I’m in favor of netting all three cities

    Green light from me.

    Please screen grab F7 each turn. Religion.

    Kait, if you still have the T29-30 saves, could you please check the percentage if Buddhism in the world, F7?

    Not directly. wb1 (if we assigned him this duty) would be the NE island first. Then maybe far east, but I was thinking just peek east if there's time and then be a 2nd seafood for Canal to let it concentrate on GLH. My vote is still as in PPP. Just threw this out as the (only?) thing holding up the green lights. I believe I have one unless I missed them.

    I get the hint. Was sorta waiting for Kait, but I'll start soon. Remember, I'm slow, and I need to eat dinner soon.

    No rush. We can wait for Kait. Have some dinner and relax first.

    Kait didn’t raise any objections, did he?

    Definitely take your time.

    LC is 3 hours ahead and he's :old: so you may not get real-time feedback from him if you wait too long. I likely won't be available either. But I'm sure that you'll be fine without us and if you get to a point where you need feedback, you can pause and wait. I'm not sure what would come up in the next 10ish turns though that would require too much deliberation.

    for PPP here

    Turnset Report (T32-T44)

    T32

    Mining 0%
    wb (to silver's seafood) gets +1 supply, so settler returns inside borders.
    Sheep -> Sitting Bull

    T33
    SB
    completed something, IIRC a settler. Score: 99 (no change)
    Religion was 5% 10% and is now 4%, 13% (Hindu, Budda)

    Spoiler wb1 reveals: :
    Absolutely nothing. No path SE, and surprisingly, not even a food to tempt players into settling on the Marble side.

    We give SB a case of crabs. (credit: LC, still cracks me up)

    T34

    SB score 99, no change
    Religion 8%, 12%

    Mining 100%

    T35
    :sleep:
    SB score 99, no change
    Religion 7%, 11%

    T36

    :sleep:
    SB score 99, no change
    Religion 6%, 13%

    T37
    Mining

    SB score 99, no change
    Religion 6%, 13%

    Silver City founded (cleverly named: Silver)
    btw, Silver City is not liberatable.

    T38
    SB score 108 (+9)
    Religion 6%, 12%

    Clam -> SB

    Geez, at least in the test save I got 2 forest growth in Cows. Nothing to report.

    I guess I'm not as slow as I thought...

    Oops, got ahead of myself, still on T38
    SB did settle. Right on the north shore Wine (with clam)
    Right before he can net his clam, we should cancel our deal and re-do it to lock him in for 10 turns. He shouldn't get a wb that fast--His capital can't build it for him--hmm. I suppose it could sail around the other way.

    T39
    no changes
    1 turn late...Warrior moves to scout SB's #2. See if he smells anything funny there.
    I should slow down.

    T40

    SB score 108 no change
    Religion 8%, 11%

    Warrior sees SB borders have expanded. Not sure if that means they just expanded.

    T41
    SB score 108 no change
    Religion 8%, 13%

    Warrior sees worker on Silk :assimilate:

    T42
    SB score 117 (+9) Capital grows to size 2
    Religion 7%, 12%

    Poverty Point in view. 1 archer

    I've got all the esp. screenshots, etc. but I didn't track what he built lately. That'll be post-game analysis.

    T43
    SB score 123 (+6)
    Religion 7%, 12%

    I'm gonna stop. Gives us time to decide Monument or not in Science.
    Where is Cows wb going?
    Could/should StoneCity settle T44 before BW? (as long as we still get BW T45)
    The location of copper can't change our site, right?

    Resuming...
    0% BW
    Cows works Deer (vs farm)

    T44
    SB gets a cottage
    Religion 7%, 11%

    Profit founded (our Prophet city)
    (not liberatable)

    T45
    Bronze Working
    !

    Turnset Complete

    :lol::crazyeye: I don't even need to put the log in spoiler tags---it's so short, but I will.
    Seems to be missing stuff.
    Spoiler Here is your Session Turn Log from 2720 BC to 2200 BC: :

    Turn 36, 2560 BC: You have discovered Mining!
    Turn 36, 2560 BC: You have constructed a Barracks in Science or. Work has now begun on a Worker.
    Turn 36, 2560 BC: The borders of Cows have expanded!

    Turn 44, 2240 BC: Profit has been founded.
    Turn 44, 2240 BC: You have discovered Bronze Working!

    Uploaded

    P.S. I suppose I should include the copper report, but I thought you all would want to open the save an enjoy the moment. For completeness, I will report here in spoilers.
    Spoiler Copper :

    Mapmaker gave us a 'Copper Piping' but not much actual copper.
    Spoiler Actual Copper: :
    None :faint:

    Green light :)

    Make sure to note which civ Silver City can liberate to, and don't accidentally give the city away.

    Good thinking on monument in Science City.
    Forgot that was a choice.

    We're gonna need 6 more warriors eventually and some of them have a long walk or need a boat ride. Science might have to change to that (soon?) They'll be super strong with the Rax. :rolleyes:
