"Seek not the life of the immortals, but enjoy to the full the resources that are within reach."

The world is filled with various "resources" that can aid in a civilization's growth and development. These include cattle, wheat, coal, iron, whales, and oil. During a game, you will want to build your cities near to resources so that they can take advantage of the resources' bonuses. Some resources - gold and fish, for example - are visible at the start of a game, while others - like aluminum, oil, and uranium - are hidden until your Civilization has mastered the appropriate technology.
