Hi all. I got a little delayed. Igor had baseball tonight. he's 4-0 with a save. beyond building the commerce, where are we going with this? My experience with prince and below games leads me to believe that if copper is far, iron is near. But we don't need iron yet, do we? I'm in agreement with the tech path of Alpha then sailing. but i'm thinkin' iron might be more useful in the short term. I haven't played much with slavery, usually preferring the caste route to get merchants galore. Bottom line, I'm asking what you want me to do with this set?
