What is the general rule considering starting crates ? I can read on Goodspeed guide about britts :
"With 200w and no gold crate, simply build a manor.
With 300w, build a TP and chop 35w for the manor.
With 200w and 100g, Mine 75 gold (usually get most of this from treasures), build a market
first and trade gold for wood, then get a manor + hunting dogs."

If there always 3 differents "starting crates" for each civs, same as brittains ?

Not a big fan of the last one where you build a market and sell gold for wood, better to get a manor out first imo for teh extra vill sooner and just chop or try and find a wood treasure for a market.

It depends on the civ, france makes a market and buys wood when it has a 100c start, india can't do anything with coin.

Most strats on the strategy wall will have a "what to do with which crate start" section.

Sometimes things change: like Mitoe said in his recent brit guide (and prob. others before) if you have a small wood treasure in base, you can chope for 2nd manor even if you have 200w start as brit.

To be more clear, I just wanted to know if each civ starts the game with 3 differents combinations of crates like brittain.

Yeah all civs have 5 possibilities f+w, f+g, f, g, w

The only civ which is always getting the same crates is China

Please someone correct me if I'm wrong

You can also have Nothing so that's 6 possibilities

You cannot have nothing. One crate is always f/w/g. Then second one can be food if it didn't spawn already.

The chances are allocated like this right:
1/3 food crate
1/6 wood crate
1/6 wood + food
1/6 coin
1/6 coin + food

No. What macaco said is true. Maybe Jerom's post is even better. I just never paid attention to how likely the different spawns are

yeah, if an age 1 TP civ gets +100w + 100f you should probably resign if its not yet at 2 minutes XD

It's correct except the last "wood" should be food, assume typo
Whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Rather a slip of mind, I fixed it.
