[14:49] <Octavian_X> Nah, just start next turn. [14:49] <GBM> yeah [14:50] <GBM> ok, done ____________________________________________________ What Can I say? We need to: 1) Find out a counter-offer to CGN's deal. Offer them how much we value the tech, even if the price is way low. May I suggest first offering how much extra gold we will get by not researching for the next 7 turns (Thats how long the tech will take) and offer that. 2) Formulate an official welcome message to CGN 3) Determine what to do with the settler + Galley that will set sail next turn. Shall we take the Icy Island down south to stop GCA from making an island blockade, or the Lush, green one, with iron and bonus grasslands aplenty? 4) Figure out how to finish off GCA.
