    Inspired by this old bumped thread... and this post,

    http://www.apolyton.net/forums/showt...50#post2078750

    I've made it Multiple Choice, so you can vote for as many as you want... but try to just vote for your real favorite ones.

    Count me for Gold, Whales, Silk and Wine.

            Whoops - I didn't notice that it's multiple choice so I only voted for whales. If anyone is counting, please add votes for silk and spice - which sounds like the Thai restaurant I used to go to in Fitzrovia.

                    I'm going to think of this as what 4 I would want in my "perfect" city.At least before someone like the above poster came along and sacked it

                    I gotta have a whale for that first worker.In fact 2 whales.Then wine of course and ideally a river wheat square which I would later change to silk.

                    A mined oasis or ivory can be very good squares.

                    where is ivory?

                      gold (do i hear rivered gold?)
                      wine - ideal for a science city needing extra production
                      silk/wheat - i count this as one, because i usually use both - wheat for various growth periods, silk for trade
                      whales - excellent starter space
                      spice - excellent starter space

                      honorable mention: ivory - better than silk (same food, production if mined, more trade), but usually means there are a lot of bad spaces in the area

                          A mined Goldcity mined wine is nice too

                          And whale is okay

                          edit: Don't forget spice - nice groth/trade

                            whales = #1 (you get it all without moving a finger)
                            then silk/wheat, because of the fine combination.
