The Giant Civ 6 AAR: Nubia, Part Five

We cleared some of our local area, so the capital is a bit more secure.  On with the show!

It’s Mine, All Mine!

What?  You thought there were funny quips here?  First time visiting us?

 

civ6-Nubia
Anyway.

Building the mine1 gives us a knowledge boost toward the wheeeeeeeel

 

civ6-Nubia
Damned Georgian Scouts.

I can’t make them go away, but it doesn’t mean I like them sniffing around.

 

civ6-Nubia
Guarding the Maize.

We’re going back to the maize with the worker now, and we have the slinger keeping watch at that hex.

 

civ6-Nubia
Delegations.

These are a tool for diplomatic influence that’s a level below an embassy and not just outright “gifts”2 and you can choose to accept or refuse.  We accept.  This time.

 

civ6-Nubia
What The Heck.

We’ll delegate a delegation to deliver some delectable delicacies.

 

civ6-Nubia
Snark.

I like it.

 

civ6-Nubia
Our Animals May Now Have Husbands.

So we’ll get to work on our next technology

 

civ6-Nubia
Archery.

Why?  So you can stab a mf’er from all the way over here!  Well that, and it’ll let us build our civ’s unique unit.

 

civ6-Nubia
Farming.

We start farming our maize, which (look at the bottom right) will provide extra food, and housing.  “Housing” is a catch-all for how much population your city can support, and can be increased with sewers, food production, certain districts, governor bonuses, social policies, etc.

 

civ6-Nubia
Eureka!

Farming a resource has taught ourselves more about irrigation.

 

civ6-Nubia
Got Forth Scout!

And find us a fifth city!

 

civ6-Nubia
More Scouting.

There’s a lot to see to our south, so we’re going to send one scout each to either side of Singapore and go see what’s out there.

 

civ6-Nubia
Meanwhile.

Our warrior is going to head through the dust storm and toward Kumasi, so see what’s along that coast.  I pretty much know what more northern limits are, but there’s a lot of terra incognito elsewhere still.

 

civ6-Nubia
Camptime.

We’re going to build a camp on this critter resource.  Look at the bottom right again.  By building the hunting camp, we get some gold, plus the housing bonus/turn.

 

civ6-Nubia
Eurek… er… Inspiration!

The boosts toward social policies are “inspirations” instead of “eurekas” and now that we’ve developed 3 resources, we’re on the way to being more crafty.  No, the other kind.

 

civ6-Nubia
Found Georgia.  No Peaches

Because no one’s yet “developed” the early empire social policy, no one can enforce their borders yet.  So I’m going to take advantage of the opportunity to stroll around inside Georgia’s borders and map the place before I have to ask permission later in the game.

 

civ6-Nubia
So here I’m a-wandering.

And just looking around.

 

civ6-Nubia
Well That Settles It.

The red hexes are where I can’t plant a city.  The green are more advantageous locations (again, look in the bottom right).  I want this guy off to the coast.

 

civ6-Nubia
Huh.  Well That is a Cul-de-sac If I Ever Saw One.

Guess we’re not walking through there, eh?

Let’s keep expanding the map and see what we can find
