The Chinese are a unique civilization, because they start with 6 Villagers and 0 Food. This makes it so that the start of their build orders differ from others quite a bit. That being said, they do get a lot of powerful bonuses and are overall a really flexible civ.
In this guide we will go over Hera’s tutorial on how to play Chinese. If you check out the video above, Hera gives a lot of very useful tips: he recommends staying away from drushing, and luring deer to help mitigate a messy start.
Keep in mind that even though the optimal build has you going directly to Sheep, it’s easier and perfectly OK to build a house first and go to Food after.
