After our recent TC we are now presented with 3 possible trade scenarios. Russia has some techs but we do not have anything that they want. Germany has 3 possible trades. I ranked these in order of what I selected during my "negotations". 1. Calendar and 40gold from Germany for Polythesim and Code of Laws 2. Calendar and 40 gold for Alphabet and polythesim 3. Calendar, horseback Riding, and 40 gold from Germany for Alphabet, Poly and Code of Laws. Please use the info below to discuss which trades should be made on the next TC. A poll will go up shortly by the censor. Research costs and benefits Calendar (808) benefits..our incense can be used Horseback riding (577)..military tech needed to make mounted units Our techs and possible reasons to hold or to trade. Alphabet(693)..German does not have it but Russia does. We need to beat Russia to trading it. Polytheism(231)..no need to hold it since Russia has it adn its a religous tech and there is currently no religion available to our current opponents. Code of Law(808) Russia has it...Germany does not Other techs Russia ....Monothesim, Music, Constructison...will not trade any of them. Germany.......metal casting.
