    Yup. You've got enough to work the two gold mines. Can't work the marble though with your capital city.

    Don't bother with Bronze Working anytime soon. I guess this is one of those situations where you can pretty much skip BW for a while.

    And what's the point of worker first? Does Isabella start with Agriculture?

    I went worker first and mining to improve gold, speeds up Agri-AH. Second city can work marble. With high commerce self tech CoL is easy + Oracle Theology, philosophy ot islam is easy to get as well. 2pig2rice1banana spot is GP farm, spawns artist like crazy. Very easy culture win (spiritual temples), keeping an eye on Ragnar

    @Sampsa
    If no desert - it would be in the middle of jungle. Even worst.

    OK - never player rainforest so I don't really know what to expect. But settling on the marble seems sensible.
