    Earliest we can settle Whales is T54 and net next turn.

    True enough. :) Playing test games can be confusing.

    Let's see if we can break the record for how many times you drive to DD in a single day. ;)

    Good luck, LC!!

    Kait posted this a couple days ago, so I guess that’s a quasi green light.

    I’d rather play while still awake. I always win when dreaming but ...

    How do you make screenshots? And where do they get saved?

    Livy reports we’re the seventh most cultured civilization in the world. Not bad. SB is fifth.

    Far upper left corner fog is a tundra hill. 2n of mtn is coast, perfectly situated to frustrate settling options. All else is tundra.

    Appears like a one-city island, but who knows? So now we decide on the Silver cowboy. Chop or go to the silver tile?

    Settling Whales next turn, the silver will be mined with one turn to spare. Sound like a plan? — Affirmative.

    Behold! A two-humped dreckmobile:

    Now we really need to explore the NW. All hope is not lost but NE Isle sure seems like fool’s ivory.

    We settle Whales next to the silver mountain. Our maintenance leaps from -26gpt to -36gpt. STRIKE anyone?

    Okay, that’s it. I rolled to T55. Finished the Sci farm and the Cow fur camp, to make MM easier. Defogged a couple more tiles around Two-Time Turd.

    I’ll do a DD run tomorrow morning. EDIT: UPLOADED. Test game attached below.

    End of turnset.

    No as in never or not now?

    The location of the coastal tile is telling me the tundra hill has a resource you only get in your BFC if you sacrifice a seafood to the east.

    The planning was a PITA, the execution a PICNIC.

    Btw, the SB scout between Canal and SB is his second scout. His first is north of Cows.

    So we’re agreed on settling Whales at 1e, that is, 1w of the northern silver tile? T54. We don’t care when Mssonry comes in, right? As long as it’s by T60.

    Fool's ivory is right.

    Good luck, keep going!
