The Tsikhe is a unique building of the Georgian civilization in Civilization VI: Rise and Fall. It is built in the City Center and replaces the Renaissance Walls.

Strategy[]

After numerous indirect and direct buffs, the Tsikhe has been transformed from a ridiculously underwhelming building to a safeguard that dissuades even the most bloodthirsty warlords from invading Georgia. It now provides twice the outer defense of the standard Renaissance Walls, turning Georgian cities into impenetrable fortresses. The latest buff towards Georgia's civilization ability (+50% Production Production towards walls) makes this building even more potent. Moreover, it plays strongly to the Georgian unique ability of chaining multiple Golden Ages. Considering that the Tsikhe is built in the City Center (meaning that it can be built in every city), combined with Tamar's leader ability, you are looking at a significant Faith Faith and Tourism Tourism output as long as you can continue your Golden Ages. After the general buff towards the Renaissance Walls that make them immune to Siege Towers and Battering Rams, the Tsikhe, with its double defense strength, is so tanky that it can withstand even rounds of Bombards. However, considering that this is the only piece of unique infrastructure that can be rendered obsolete with technological research, make sure you delay researching Steel until you build your Tsikhe in every city. With its boosted Faith Faith and Tourism Tourism output in Golden Ages, this building can contribute meaningfully to a Cultural Victory, if you can make the best out of your civilization ability to chain Golden Ages.

Valletta's Suzerain bonus has good synergy with Georgia, since it allows the Tsikhe and other City Center buildings to be purchased with Faith Faith. This city-state is an amazing facilitator for Georgia, since now you do not even need to dedicate your Production Production to build walls, you can just instantly erect them with your massive Faith Faith income whenever you are on the receiving end of a war declaration. In case where Valletta is not available, for maximum efficiency, you can build your Tsikhe while having the Limes policy card and the World Congress resolution (Urban Development Treaty) providing 100% Production Production towards buildings in the City Center active, combined with your civilization ability, for a total of 250% Production Production bonus.

Civilopedia entry[]

High over the landscape, situated in the hills and rocky cliffs, the Georgian fortresses guard the countryside. The tsikhe feature high curtain walls with either rounded or triangular merlons (the solid part of the “cut outs” on the wall). A tower stands at each intersection of joined wall.

The Georgian fortresses were particularly difficult to assault due to their position on the high ground. Although this type of fortress existed during the time of Alexander the Great, the Georgians used them effectively through the 17th Century.
