The Giant Civ 6 AAR: Nubia, Part XIV

Last time we planted a new city, jacked up our era score, and started pyramiding….

ūüé∂ I’m All Alooooooone.ūüé∂

Well, surrounded by Canadians, so… ¬†yeah, all alone

 

civ6-Nubia
Get That Builder Moving.

Need a Nubian Pyramid nearby

 

civ6-Nubia
Bonus!

You can see the bonuses that I’m going to get, down there in the lower right

 

civ6-Nubia
And there it is.

My brand new-bian pyramid!

 

civ6-Nubia
Next Stop.

Iron!

 

civ6-Nubia
What to build next?

Monument is done, so what to work on next?

 

civ6-Nubia
Government Plaza?

Would be nice for the bonuses, but that damned oasis is messing up my he locations. I’m starting to thing I parked this city one hex off where it should’ve been, and I needed to plop it on top of the wheat to the upper right of the city center.

 

civ6-Nubia
Archers.

Let’s just get some archers and builders built and figure it out after that.

 

civ6-Nubia
Sure.

I can trade away some extra salt, and their open borders are a plus.

 

civ6-Nubia
Envoy!

I have an envoy I need to assign somewhere.  Early in the game, I want them in use.  Later in the game I might hold a few for a big swing on a city-state.

 

civ6-Nubia
Muy Bueno.

Let’s try to beef up our relationship with Buenos Aires. ¬†For a lot of different reasons….

 

civ6-Nubia
Trading Posts!

Look to the right – I’ve got new trading posts created thanks to my trade routes, which will continue to produce passive income even once I re-direct my traders.

 

civ6-Nubia
Iron!

And it’s all mine! ¬†Or about to be, anyway.

 

civ6-Nubia
A Couple Of Things Here.

First, I got another ‘eureka’ from the mine, which will help my tech advance. ¬†Second, the active unit (covered up by the eureka) is a trader that I need to give a new assignment to.

 

civ6-Nubia
The “!” Bubble.

Means that there’s a quest to send a trade route to Buenos Aires that’ll get me an envoy there.

 

civ6-Nubia
Muy’er Bueno.

Let’s send that trade route.

 

civ6-Nubia
Make it Suze‚Äďrain!

Again with the era score, but more importantly…

 

civ6-Nubia
Un-Pinned.

Now that I’m the Suzerain of the Buenos (or is the Aireans?) I have open borders and get my vacationing scout-dude back to work.

 

civ6-Nubia
More Vinnies1.

Not that strong, but got a river in between to boost his defense. ¬†Still, it’ll be nice to wipe out another camp.

 

civ6-Nubia
Polar Expedition Scouts.

Waaaay down South, our Antarctic scouts are starting to widen the map.

 

So we got shifted a scout from inaction to in action and racked up some envoys
