    Spoiler :


    The PDF in the spoiler isn't the version in the War Academy - Introductory Courses. The War Academy has the CivIV-Warlords update but the spoiler, of the revised OP, has the CivIV-BtS update.

    Maybe someone can replace the War Academy's v.2.0 with the newer v.5.0?

    Olson - Yeah, I pointed that out about a year and a half ago - see my post 3up (#318). I also sent a message to the staff, but nothing was ever changed

    Correction for PDF version 5:

    4.6.1 Commerce Cities

    Bullet on High-priority Builds ends ... both the science multiplying and the commerce multiplying buildings. This bullet mentioned many wealth multiplying buildings and no commerce multiplying building, thus one must conclude that the qualifier "wealth" was intended rather than "commerce".

    Another correction to PDF version 5.0:

    6.1.2 Best National Wonders

    Wall Street

    Wall Street multplies commerce by 100%,

    It multiplies "wealth" not "commerce".

    It is common for beginning players to confuse the concepts of "wealth" with "commerce". The above mentioned error in the PDF exacerbates this conceptual confusion, making it harder for beginning players to understand and thus succeed in winning the game. It is also for this reason, that I take pains to call the game concept "fail gold" by the name "fail wealth"; a failed wonder provides wealth for each accumulated hammer, not commerce.

    Remember that commerce is a pre-slider value and that wealth is a post-slider value which can also be a slider-independent value, such as when it is produced by a holy shrine or by a merchant.

    PDF version 5.0 suggestion:

    The description of West Point assumes a Vanilla Barracks that provides 4 XPs, and not the Warlords and BtS Barracks that provide only 3 XPs. The wonder's description needs to be changed to reflect this.

    Correction for PDF version 5.0:

    8 GREAT PEOPLE

    8.1 Production

    Specialist bullet ... Running specialists will contribute 2 GPP.

    The GPP generation of a specialist is "3" GPP and not "2" GPP.
