As expected Pyramids finish before I move a piece.
550 BC - The Great Library is begun, needing 34 turns. I kill Moscows growth to save 6 turns, but until there is an aquaduct, who cares?
510 BC - Our nearly upgraded swordsman kills that English warrior sitting by Kiev. I can tell I am desperate for cash, selling world maps for $1. Every buck gets us closing to another warrior --> swordsman upgrade.
490 BC - We kill 2 more English units losing a conscript warrior, and the still insist on Kiev?
470 BC - Odessa is formed, the last city to be built for a while. A spearman kills one of our swordsman, but dies and gives our two workers from the dead settler. This is sad, spending time to get $2 from German / Aztecs for world map, to try and upgrade a warrior to swordsman.
450 BC - China makes a mistake, splitting there forces. Our Archer picks our a lone warrior and becomes elite. Our swordsman kills a lone archer. China kills a lone swordsman, but waste 2 archers trying to take Smolensk.
430 BC -
The Aztecs have a warrior army already. Our scout is not happy with what he sees. I kill science to get the cash to upgrade that warrior. England now wants us to give Literature. What a bozo.
370 BC - 2 dead Chinesse archers, at no cost.
330 BC -
Odessa falls. A bad day in Russian history.
310 BC - Our swordsman kills the Archer who defiled Russia soil.
290 BC - I am getting sick of England demanding Kiev. I start research on Polytheism, it has the highest price. Maybe it will have some trade value?
270 BC - I am forced to crack the whip in Kiev. The city is going to be stuck at size 2 for a while.
Minsk is ours again.
250 BC - I cost us an archer, but 2 more free workers from China.
210 BC - A lone China archer lands by St. Pete.
170 BC - Peace with China. If it holds, who cares? I want to concentrate on England.
We get - Worker, $24, World Map, Code of Laws, Math, and Poly. Germany demands $17 / territory map - I give it to him, as we can risk a fight with civ that has horses. England completes the Oracle.
UNREAL - I kill 2 more English archers, and they still want Kiev.
110 BC - Odessa is formed, near Germany. If Heidelburg will flip, we get horses.
Minsk is intenionally frozen at size one to reduce the risk of a flip - don't change it
This could be our base for a future war with China.
Goals - Once the big stack of units arrive, kill England.
AVOID WHIPPING - Our towns can't take much more
