I have been playing Age of Empires: Rise of Rome for a while now, but I can't seem to think up a good head-start for games--Right when you start a game...what do you guys do? Build 2 houses then search for the berry patch?

Please post your strategies here...

1) Hit H-C-C-C-C
2) Have 2 guys build 2 houses(3 if roman) make sure they are both on the same house
3) 3rd villager scouts.
4) Whenever a new villager comes out make him explore another direction, use keypoints they help a lot.
5) When the builders are done make them look you would have found a patch by now.

I think that building two houses is a waste of scouting time. I build just one with two of the villagers, and when it looks about halfway done, i move one villager off to explore. Finding that berry patch, or whatever else you might be looking for is more important than building the second house which could be built several villagers later, IMO.

Ihave to go with Sergei on this one, my typical build order for any map early on is as follows...

1)HCCCC
2)Build one house with two vills so that the back if the house is touching the black, NEVER build a house partially into the blackness.
3)Take my 3rd vill and scout for berries.
4)When the house is about 50% done or so take one vill off and look in another direction.
5)House is finished, 4th vill pops out, and they scout.
6)Blah blah blah 6 vills on berries for a while, then move the 6th vill off berries and onto wood once you have the 8th or 9th vill made.
7)Build 2nd house with 7th villager if you are going to experience downtime, if you arent going to experience downtime (which means you wont be waiting for 50 food for 8th vill) then build the house with the 6th villager instead of the 7th.

Of course that doesnt apply to shang, but shang can follow #2-5 I guess.

well, I like to make about 4 villagers, and then yell and scream as 17 cavs enter my base and I see ln my screen,

"LOL! LOSER! THIS IS DM! HAHAHAHAHAHA"

sorry, just gotta vent that anger.

Your words comfort me in cold seasons.
Your smile wells up and drowns me in your reason.
Your sculpted lips speak to me in silence.
Your voice crashes like a wave against the violence.

I build the 2nd house just so i dont forget it later. Also with all my villagers spready about if i find i need a house fast to keep up wit pop i may only have 1 villager to build it, losing precious seconds! But in the end it really doesnt matter much.

Cal, not sure what you're talking about there, but chances are you are wrong.
