My question is if a player has the government type monarchy and gets two actions with the capital, can the first action be used to start a building program and the second to produce a building, unit, or wonder?
On page 7 of Wisdom and Warfare it says, start a building program is a fourth city action. So it looks like start a building program is separate from producing a building, unit, or wonder action.
It seems on the face of it to be having your cake and eating it too. In game we couldn’t find any rule against it. We zoomed through to the modern wonders very fast! It caused a buying frenzy after the first two ancient wonders were purchased.
