Inca Analysis

Goodness, there have been production and food civs in the game so far, but nothing quite pans out as much as the Inca do in Gathering Storm.

The first big change is unlike every other civilization in the game, The Inca can work mountain tiles, which means that since you want to be near them for your Terrace Farms, they are no longer dead weight. This will also boost your Science and Faith Districts that like Mountain adjacency.

Indeed, it is these Terrace Farms that provide such a strong bonus working great adjacency weather they are near mountains, or rivers, or both. Yes, they are tempered by the fact that you need hills, and if you are unlucky with that you could be a bit stuffed. However, I always get at least some hills in a start before. I mean these might knock Australia’s Outback Station off the best tile improvement spot.

The other bonuses are all nice, but really it is the food/Production nexus that really makes the Inca stand out, and this means that they will be a very flexible civilization, giving you the ability to switch up which victory you go for.
