The Giant Civ 6 AAR: Nubia, Part Eight

In episode seven, we were mostly focused on expanding the map, but we did stop to found a pantheon.

Scouting around.

I’m trying to figure out the terrain between me and the Georgians, so I can figure out where the best places to part some natural defenses might be.

 

civ6-Nubia
Warrior as a Marker.

Based on the surrounding territory, I’m looking to plant a city near the top of this lake.  I’m going to move my warrior (that’s hit another mountain cul-de-sac) up there to mark the spot, and fend off any would-be squatters.

Villager bonus.

One of the local villages I met with help me in my development of another civic.

 

civ6-Nubia
Research!

I’ve developed astrology, which will help me build my faith a bit more rapidly with some of the districts/buildings it enables.

 

civ6-Nubia
Oh-ohhhhh-oh-oh / I’m goin’ Southbound.

My scout has found the tundra down at the southern end of the continent, indicating we’re likely getting to the bottom of the map.

 

civ6-Nubia
Overview.

I’m still on just 2 cities, but looking to rapidly branch out as soon as I get my settlers moving.

Next Civic.

Our workers will start to get more productive.  Well, once we get some.

 

civ6-Nubia
What’s next?

Mysticism will get me building some more faith quickly.

 

civ6-Nubia
Where’d he go?

That barbarian scout was just there, and now he’s disappeared into the ether.

 

civ6-Nubia
Oh.

Found him!

 

civ6-Nubia
Get outta here.

I’m going to move this scout across the continent to get 2 guys over on the same coastline to start charting it.

 

civ6-Nubia
Warrior-scout.

This guy will continue to hug the east coast and fill in the map on this side.

 

civ6-Nubia
Promotion!

My scout has covered enough ground that he’s eligible for a promotion.

 

civ6-Nubia
You’ll fight tigers!

We’re going to send him to ranger school, since we’re running into more woods/jungle than hills/mountains over here.

 

civ6-Nubia
Lava shower!

That volcano just blew, and because I’m in the impact zone, I’m taking a health hit.

 

civ6-Nubia
Time to scoot.

There’s that barbarian scout again, and I need to be somewhere else since I’m down on health.

 

civ6-Nubia
Meanwhile…

My ranger scout has found a damaged barbarian scout, so let’s put him out of our misery.

 

civ6-Nubia
Hey Buenos, how goes it.

I’m going to check out their turf while they still don’t have their borders enforced.

 

civ6-Nubia
The Magic Cube.

We’ve developed mysticism, and that gives us a bunch of stuff we can build, plus some social policies.

 

civ6-Nubia
Looking Ahead.

Rather than manage one-by-one, I’m going to aim for political philosophy, which unlocks a our next level of government, and grants some additional policies.

 

Next time we clear out some reds, and get a scout stuck.
