Adventure 53, part 1
Getting gold from the first hut is totally sadistic in the variant.
I build Timbuktu on the elephant for extra starting shield. The expansion phase begins heading toward Egypt. His scout showed up to quickly from this way.
I declare war on Egypt in 1480 BC. I quickly grab the capitol. It comes with a nice bonus of Stonehenge.
It is a bloodbath with Memphis being on a hill, but Egypt is gone in 1160 BC. Thebes really turns out nice after I research iron and find a source there. I secure the copper source.
I follow up with the stone site.
I claim the horse site for long term military improvement.
I pushed toward Carthage where I fear the next war is coming from.
