We should definitely take the barb city now while we have Axes and they have only warriors. Waiting for the city to start spawning Archers would be a mistake... ESPECIALLY since the city is on a hill. Also, the city can already work the improved Corn and improved Mine that is not being used. When we capture the city, it drops to Pop 1 right? Then we work the mine to build a monumnet while the city grows. By the time it gets to Pop 2 those 7-9 turns will have passed, and we will have Workers there to improve the tiles, right? About the roads... I don't like the idea of getting roads in the wilderness that we can't defend from barbs. Is there a way to get those areas covered by our culture quickly after they are finished?
