    I could also trade some of my marble for your crystal, so let me know if you want to trade 100 straight up. I would also consider 200 wood for 100 marble.

    Right now I'm on the Seafaring research chain working my way down to Foreign Cultures so I can build embassies. I'm on the prerequisite step, Espionage. I have 20 scientists hard at work on the research, but Espionage is a time sink. Who do they think they are, Q? :) Seven hours left on Espionage and Foreign Cultures will take another day with the current complement of scientists.

    Once I get Foreign Cultures I plan to switch back to Economy so I can build a tavern. :D Not sure which research track I'll take after that.

    I think he is out of town until Tuesday.

    I am building up to expand my palace for colony #2 in alpha world.

    My co-ordinates are way too far from anyone of you in beta.

    Probably would take a week back and forth.

    I'm even farther. Doesn't bother me, I'm just learning. This game is a time sink. To be able to research what I need seems like it will take weeks. I'm at level 3 on my town hall and need marble to increase it more. I can't colonize until I research a bunch of steps, and can't make wine until I do the same. Until then I have nothing to trade or can't get other stuff myself. I guess I'll just let it go for a few days and build up gold and wood.

    Edit: For crystal.

    I'm making wine now, will have some tomorrow if anyone needs any. I finished wealth, and received 50 of each luxury goods by doing so. didn't know I'd get that. So I have some to level up my Walls, Town hall, Academy, Warehouse, and build the Tavern with.

    Finally finished Wine Press research overnight and quickly got a level 2 Tavern built. That skyrocketed the town's satisfaction to the point where I'll be thinking about expanding the town hall soon.

    I think I'll keep researching the Economy track at least down to Holiday to gain another source of satisfaction. For that reason I might then switch over to Science and work my way down to Cultural Exchange to be able to build museums.

    In the meantime I'll continue to work on passive defense: wall level, spies in the hideout, defensive phalanxes, and some ballista ships. I doubt that I have reached the radar screen of any professional pillagers, but a lot of them in the forums say that if you take a few basic steps in self-defense they'll probably bypass you.
