Straybow ... it's no use having 4 engineers on the same tile changing terrain! To do this quickly you must use Xin's method of no more than two working at a time and rotating their work schedule.
1853 = Konigsberg reduced by BB bombardment and taken for 425g - four partisans ethnically cleansed - Fundamentalism (SG quickly checks the Oedo table - snatched from his hand by SG(2)); Our spy establishes an Embassy with the Brits and then buys Norwich for 89g - 25g and an Engineer with Genetic Engineering; Hides, One Wonders-Byblos: 318g;
The Grand Plan has been formulated (and we're only on bottle one!):
The Institute will be refounded on the island to the North, this and the other two island colonies will produce soft fluffy armours for the removal of the chinese coastal cities. Meanwhilst... the home continent will concentrate upon Superhighways (the odd airport) and freights. Und! on ze exGerman continent a task force to teach the nasty Fundamentalist Celts a serious lesson - Tactics 101 - do not leave your capital without an active Wonder when the Gits are on the game!!!
