We concentrate the bulk of our northern army inside the city, while taking advantage of the collapsed Spanish borders to scout ahead in anticipation of our next moves. In the south, we move our huge stack of knights past our captured city of Bulawayo to fork two more cities to our east. Increasing tensions with CivFr leads us to DOW them before their Merchant can complete it's Trade Mission. They were attempting to "claim" the vast majority of Spanish lands despite having no army, so we called their bluff. We surrounded their Merchant (with mostly non-combat units) so it can not complete it's mission, and we killed their scouting archer. Investigation of CivFr diplo reveals the following: They have OB with UCiv and are trading them Incense for Pigs They have OB with CP and are trading them Rice for Clams and Furs They have OB with the Germans and are gifting them Ivory They have OB with Poly and are trading them Sugar for Wheat They have no deals with RB They have not met WPC While we're on this screen, we can also see that RB is trading the Spaniards Ivory for Dye, and they continue to receive Marble from the Germans.
