What do you think of this? Is it the most efficient way to get some iron when there is nothing left on the map?

I use the following setting:
- lots of small iron mines
- ration in iron mine with low priority (so only leftover rations are fed)
- loads of taverns configured to only consume meat
- loads of hunters and their supply

If you are getting to this iron economy, you probably have lost the game already, imho.

If I'm not mistaken the most efficient way to mine iron from empty mountains is indeed using the small barbarian mines based on taverns without bread. Barbarians might be the best tribe to mine from empty mountains.

So the match might be lost if the enemy still can find metal (or plays as amazons) but your chances are good otherwise.
