Standard size, normal speed, 7 civs, continents, Monarch. I'm on one end of a big island. Immediate neighbors are Isabella and Louis. On the far end are Ghandi and Mansu. I can never get Isabella to like me, so I don't plan to try here. It's early on and both Ghandi and Mansu are leading in score and tech. They seem to be starting to dislike each other, which is probably very good for me. Only Louis and I have no religion yet with Mansu being Confucian. So my question is, whom do I try to befriend? If I buddy up with Louis, we can work together on Isabella. If I buddy up with one of the tech boys, I'll probably be on my own until I'm in a position to war with the other techhie. Any thoughts?
