Hey this is mostly towards you guys who like to play as Germans. I saw that card, Germantown farmers, which lets you make settler wagons at mills when used, and I thought wow! that would be a great card to use. Though of course it has its limits, such as the fact that you can only build 20 settler wagons, and the additional fact that settler wagons take up 2 population each. Though I still use it as it can be very helpful. Though of course, I also have to take the card 'Guild Artisans' with me if I'm gonna use Germantown farmers. What do you guys think of this card? Good, bad? Do you like to use it, do you use it in combination with other cards?

Well considering its like having an extension to your villager limit of course you'd want to get it, not to mention you can produce them from mills so they can really help if you're booming.

This card is really really nice in long games, especially with guild artisans, it's like having 139 villies, which no other civ can even come close to.

It's a "must have" card. Most games go into fortress age when players are evenly matched so being able to boom out SWs from a mill is a HUGE advantage. Also normally you can only have 10 settlers on 1 mill/plantation, but 10 SWs = 20 settlers! Talk about getting your moneys worth on one single mill/plantation!!

I have 2 german decks, a rushing and turtling deck. The rushing deck is far better at winning, but if I want a really long dawn out game I use the turtlign deck, and yes, it has germantown farmers and guild artisans in it, also another good addition is advanced mills.

I tried it out in Skirmish once I got enough to max out with 20 of them I delted 20 farmers and made 10 settler wagons and did the same for Coin.
