There have been lots of discussions over where to settle and what to build first but I dont think I have seen any on what tiles should be worked first. After all, it makes a very large difference in city growth and unit production and research speed right off the bat. Its always been my position that the whole tone of a game can be set in the first 10 turns or so. This being said, which tiles should we work first? Working a flood plain gives 3G 1C, which starts up our but working a hill gives 2 hammers and gets the warrior done in under half the turns. I believe there would be a large debate on this since the war mongers/explorers will want that warrior out faster, but the builders/researchers will want the food and the gold. Lastly, is this decision for the citizen's assembly or the governor or fall under the juristiction of the Ministry of the Interior? I've read the Code of Laws and the Triumverate government, and it wasnt very clear to me and I think its pretty important. -Steamer Thoughts from all?
