You played well here, the transport was a damn nice idea. ^^
I would say though, that you should've gotten that relic that allowed animals to be killed in a single shot. Those 10 aurochs woulda been owned. And at the end of the game, when you had 3k food and 100 gold, dont be afraid to trade resources at the market, luckily you had the jij on his heels so it didn't matter.
