It might be an unpopular strategy, but I love going for either Stonehenge or the Pyramids ASAP. Why do I love it so much? Well, the +1 engineer point virtually guarantees my one wonder turns into two in < 100 turns. At least, I usually rush a second wonder. I'm wondering now if there is a good argument that can be made for putting down a manufactory instead of rushing a Wonder... I guess my thinking is that the manufactory can give such a big boost to production that it may end up being more valuable than a mediocre wonder. Of course, if I can get Chichen Itza, Great Mosque, or Oracle, I probably will... just wondering what the forum thinks. Does anyone forgo the wonder for a manufactory? Is this just too foolish to even consider?
