Every day, you can take your daily bonuses.
- Land bonus: 20 acres of your racial home land type.
- Platinum bonus:
4 x Peasantsplatinum.
During the first two to four days, it is wise to wait with the platinum bonus until your population has caught up. From that point on, it's usually wise to take the platinum bonus early before you spend the whole day training units or exploring. The only exception is if you know you will have a lot of land incoming later that day which will increase your population.
