Requires Liberty. (BNW-only)

Strategy[]

The Pyramids is one of the earliest wonders available, and it can considerably speed up your early development. Its main effect, faster improvement construction, combines nicely with the similar effect from the Liberty policy tree, but even more important are the free Workers, which will allow you to upgrade your early cities with lightning speed. To get a chance at building the Pyramids, adopt Liberty first thing, then research Mining, then finally Masonry.

On higher difficulty levels (Emperor and above), grabbing land with Settlers may take a higher priority over this wonder.

Civilopedia entry[]

Built by the fourth dynasty of Egyptian rulers, the Pyramids represent the pinnacle of ancient Egyptian cultural achievement. Constructed on the Giza plateau outside modern-day Cairo, these structures were burial tombs and monuments for the Pharaohs, and may have taken generations and tens of thousands of workers to complete. The Pyramids are the only one of the generally accepted man-made wonders of the ancient world that remains in existence today.
