INTRODUCTION
Colonization is a strategy game created by one of the elite names in this 
genre, Sid Meier, who is best known for his creation of the Civilization 
series. It is pretty much alike to his other games and has most of the same 
basic qualities, except that economics takes a little more precedence over 
military issues in this game, and there is no emphasis on science and 
technological development. The only drawback is that there are a few annoying 
bugs, but most can be cured by simply returning to the previous save. 
Otherwise, enjoy this game, and I hope my guide for it helps you out in some 
way!!!

In the early game, your goal will be to expand your empire and acquire a 
solid foothold in the New World. Other nations will generally be friendly to 
you, or at least indifferent, so take advantage of this to expand fast and 
push yourself to a position of strength, priming your empire for the middle 
game's focus on growth and wealth development.

CHOOSING A MOTHER COUNTRY
When the game begins, you must choose a mother European nation to represent, 
and until you try to declare independence you will be that nation's colony in 
the New World. Each nation has different characteristics which make it better 
or worse than the other nations. Let me summarize the characteristics of each 
European power.
     ENGLAND's colonies receive bonus immigrants from Europe, to represent 
that fact that England's New World colonies were more settlement-intensive 
than the trading outposts of other powers. Immigrants are generated in two-
thirds the time.
     FRANCE's colonies have very good relations with native tribes (just as 
the real French did). A French player will get better cooperation from the 
Indians, and generates hostility with them less quickly.
     SPANISH colonies were acquired by military force and conquest, and this 
is reflected by the fact that Spanish forces gain a 50% attack bonus when 
attacking Indian settlements.
     A player representing THE NETHERLANDS beings with a Merchantman unit 
instead of a Caravel. Also, to represent this nation's stable trading base, 
the market prices in Amsterdam fluctuate less than those in other European 
capital cities.
     Personally my favorite nation to play is the Netherlands, because I like 
playing an economic game. The French aren't bad either, and are especially 
good for beginning players since friendly Indians let you get off to a good 
start in the game. England is decent but nothing special, and finally Spain 
is only good if you really like fighting battles.

FOUNDING YOUR FIRST COLONY
Civilization players may be somewhat unused to this since in Civ founding 
that first city, well it doesn't really matter where you do it since you can 
always expand. In Colonization expansion is more difficult for a number of 
reasons, so your first city needs to be correctly placed. I will address a 
few important factors to consider before you set up your first colony. You 
might want to sail up the coast for awhile and scout out the terrain before 
choosing a place. First, you want to make sure you're on a decent size land 
mass; anything that seems big enough to support eight or so colonies is fine. 
Second, look for two traits in the specific spot you choose. One, having some 
special resource squares nearby will be a big boost to your colony. A silver 
mine is an especially good one, if it is available. Second, try not to found 
a city right next to a native city. While you will probably encounter some 
natives soon after landing, staying away from their cities will help you 
avoid undesirable conflicts. Stay on the coast of course (you are doomed 
otherwise), and watch out for helpful fish squares, which can really boost 
your food production. Finally, as a general rule you will want to use your 
two different units to establish two different colonies on this land mass. 
Make sure both are sea-accessible, and get them started on producing some 
valuable exports. As far as developing initial colonies, two important 
structures to acquire early on are the dock and the warehouse. Fishing is by 
far the easiest way to get large amounts of food and securing a dock will 
really allow a colony to flourish. Also, without a warehouse, a productive 
colony serves no purpose, since your fabulous produce will all spoil and be 
worthless. Other structures to consider building are those that will develop 
that colony's unique resource squares.

EARLY TRIPS TO EUROPE
When you send your first ships back to Europe, there are a number of things 
you need to concentrate on. First, of course, you should be taking back the 
products of your colonies to Europe at each opportunity, especially since you 
don't have a warehouse yet and can't store large amounts of goods. Head over 
to Europe and get your cash from the production of your colonies, but even 
more important is bringing over new colonists from the mainland. The quality 
of colonists you pick up here will have a big impact on your success. Ideal 
choices to recruit in the early game are Seasoned Scouts, Hardy Pioneers, 
Farmers, Fishermen, and Lumberjacks and Carpenters. Use these new colonists 
to found new villages around your initial ones and begin the first level of 
your empire's expansion.

EARLY FOUNDING FATHERS
Good founding fathers to pick up during the early phase of the game include 
Thomas Jefferson, who increases your rebel sentiment and gets you production 
bonuses, and Peter Minuit, who will eliminate the problems of overlap with 
native villages and increase your potential expansion area. Other decent 
choices are Franklin, Penn, and de la Salle. Of course, the ultimate deciding 
factor will be which of these are available.

Your focus here will be to grow and expand your colonies (more so than your 
empire as a whole). The reason for this is that you are seeking to bring 
about the necessary conditions of wealth and population that you need for a 
successful bid at independence.

EXPANSION PLANS
Now your goal is to expand your colonies to the area around you. Try to 
occupy as much of your landmass as possible, and occupy as many resource 
squares as possible. Especially if there are no Indians in the vicinity, 
inland colonies are very rarely a liability no matter how weak, so feel free 
to build a size one or two colony just to exploit an inland silver deposit. 
However, you will also need eight to twelve (minimum) major coastal colonies 
to form the backbone of your empire. In addition to building new colonies, 
you also need to develop your existing ones. That means building the 
appropriate structures to benefit local production, building fortresses, and 
so on. It's a good goal to get around six cities of population above ten or 
twelve; often at this point you will be ready to start preparing for your War 
of Independence.

MANAGING TRADE
Having a variety of goods available for trade is essentail for success at this
point in the game. The way trade works is, when you sell some of your goods
in Europe, the price they will pay for more of these goods goes down, since
there is less demand. When you buy something, the price they will pay, and the
price at which you are able to purchase more, goes up since the demand is
greater than the supply. This means that if you want to make the most profit
off trade: (1) diversify your exports among all available possibilities, to
keep the demand for each product at a good level, and (2) always sell and buy
in as large a bulk as possible, so that change in prices don't take effect
until after the transaction. Also, you may be able to obtain positive results
by buying a small amount to raise the price, then selling a large volume at
the higher new price, this will have to be further looked into.

MIDDLE GAME FOUNDING FATHERS
Francis Drake and Adam Smith are the best at this time. Factories provide a 
serious boost to your production that is just what you need at this time, 
your financial situation will be much more secure with these at your 
disposal. Privateers are very powerful, both for protecting your shipping 
lanes, and for disrupting the shipping of other Europeans, thus driving 
prices in Europe even higher. Pocahontas is pretty decent if the Indians are 
threatening war; of course if you like the military action, go ahead and kick 
some native ass. Cortes might be an appropriate choice if that's the game 
plan you've selected.

Now is the time to fight your mother country...if you have the preconditions 
you will need to win, declare a secession and try to defeat the Royal 
Expeditionary Force sent over to destroy you and end your revolutionary bid 
for freedom.

WHEN TO DECLARE?
Once you have a steady base of colonies, it's time to start moving some 
resources toward military development. That will mean hiring gunsmiths and 
blacksmiths, etc., to produce weapons. You also need to set up schools and 
teach some veteran soldiers, then equip them with horses and muskets. That's 
your Dragoon requirement taken care of. Further, you need some Artillery, 
which you will need to get started on well ahead of time since the demands, 
especially the cost in hammers, is fairly prodigious. Generally, before 
declaring independence every one of your coastal cities should have three 
Cannons inside it, and three Dragoons close by it, to be safe. Soldiers can 
remain in the town for defensive purposes. Note that in some cases it may be 
to your advantage not to defend a colony. For instance, if you have a small 
colony on an island, and leave it undefended, the REF will go after that 
first. While you will need to go back and retake it, you gain a little time 
to develop forces. As to naval forces you will need, I often declare 
independence with very few naval units at my disposal. If you know you have 
the capacity to crank out Frigates in a hurry, it's often okay just to wait 
until they are needed, as dealing with the opposing Men O' War will be a 
problem, but not an urgent one.

DEFEATING THE ROYAL EXPEDITIONARY FORCE
Up to this point in the game its entirely possible that you haven't really 
fought a significant war--probably you've had a couple conflicts with the 
natives, but Colonization doesn't really concentrate on military matters, so 
it's easy to get out of fighting wars. Now, however, you must defeat the 
Royal Expeditionary Force or all your efforts to achieve nationhood will be 
for naught. The REF will always appear next to one of your coastal 
settlements (of course, most of your settlements will probably be coastal). 
Another advantage to you is that the REF will not leave the city they land 
next to, until they have captured/destroyed it. So if you can hold on at the 
point of insertion, you will be able to defeat the REF. You will be using two 
main units to do this: Artillery and Dragoons. Every coastal town should have 
a fortress and be occupied by at least two to three cannon. The cannon should 
remain in the city and pound on approaching troops. Do NOT use your artillery 
to lay the final smackdown on the enemy; your cannons should never leave the 
safety of the fortress. Instead, in the area around each settlement should be 
two or three Dragoon units, which are able to use ambush bonuses to destroy 
artillery-weakened enemy units. Let me give you a few other notes--first, 
Sons of Liberty percentage affects the success of your troops in battle 
(higher is better, of course).
     Since I haven't addressed combat before here are some more tips. Note 
that since you can breed your own horses in this game, at some point you 
should have brought over a few horses from Europe, they're not that 
expensive. You should equip all of your troops with horses since they become 
much more effective; any real-life benefits infantry possesses is not 
reflected in this game. Basically Dragoons should be your only forces, except 
for the Artillery you are using to protect your cities. Artillery might also 
be needed if you plan to capture strongly-defended enemy cities; if you use 
them in this role, be sure to protect Artillery units with other units at all 
times. This might be a good role for any Infantry troops you happen to 
develop since their lack of speed will not be a factor.

LATE GAME FOUNDING FATHERS
George Washington is the first guy that comes to mind. The benefits he brings 
to your troops in terms of gaining experience will definitely help you in a 
drawn out battle with the REF. It helps even more if you're at war prior to 
declaring independence; in these situations it's vital that you get 
Washington. Thomas Paine is another good one, he will keep your liberty bell 
level in the clouds throughout the end of the game. Simon Bolivar is good for 
the same reason. Also look through the Early and Middle game recommendations 
if you need to fill an extra spot, as these guys will still be good even in 
this phase of the game.

SCORE BOOSTAGE
Hmm, is boostage a word? I think perhaps not. Nevertheless, if you want to 
maximize your score at the end of the game, here is a few simple things you 
can do, most of them in the very last stages when you are close to winning. 
First, if you have Cortes, wipe out the richer Indian cultures (Incas and 
Aztecs). The money you get will be a big boost, as you get one point for 
every thousand gold you possess at the game's end. Second, make sure all of 
your colonists are trained as specialists of some sort, even if they're not 
using their training at their job...you get extra points for specialist 
colonists.
