We're early in a game of Advanced Civilization and I find myself stymied while pondering a trade.
I've been offered the most optimal trade possible. However, as only 2 cards in a trade are guaranteed, I feel I'm almost certain to receive a calamity along with the two cards I need.
As Illyria, receiving Superstition and Slave Revolt would really hamper me right now. I have only one city on a 2 area, the rest are on 1's. Having to reduce 3 cities (which is what either works out to) would prevent me from building them back, not to mention not increasing my city count next turn.
What should I consider when making this decision? When is the short term gain worth the risk of long term consequences?
My current hand is hides/timber/grain, 2xiron, 3xoil. I'd receive iron/oil/XXX(possible calamity) for my grain/timber/hides.
