Game Info[]

Bonus resource.


Wheat Wheat is found in Plains and Desert regions, making it very important for Arabia and Morocco (both of which are native to deserts). It is the only bonus resource which can be improved right from the start of the game, because its improvement is the Farm, which is available without any need of technology research. Its only downside is that it won't yield a whole lot when found on a Desert tile, because these tiles have no natural yield of any kind. Still, it's something.

Use a Granary (which adds 1 Food Food to the tile) to unlock the full potential of Wheat Wheat. Also, the Sun God religious belief adds another point of Food Food.

Civilopedia entry[]

Originally cultivated in the Fertile Crescent of the Middle East, wheat is one of the most important grains in the human diet. A remarkably versatile grain, wheat can be turned into flour and made into bread, pasta, cereal or cake, and it can be fermented and made into a variety of alcoholic beverages.
