3 villagers vs any other age one card

Is there any reason to go anything else but 3 vills (or equivalent for France, Germans, Lakota) as the first shipment for civs with that option?
I ask because it seems like regardless of a rush, boom or turtle it is always the same with 3 vills being so powerful that anything else will just slow you down.
IMO there is a bottleneck in potential usage of age 1 cards and small further tweaks could improve this.
Sending 300 food for a early age up is not enough to justify the shipment. If it was 400 food would that help?
The 7 sheep + livestock pen was the right direction, as was the improvement to the capitalism card.


pues en caso de las civs que no tienen la carta de 3 aldeanos, si lo que busco es avanzar rápido, uso la carta peletero, o también la carta de teoría económica que mejora en 10% la recolección de todo tipo de recurso en cualquier fuente. O si vas mar usas goletas para abaratar los pesqueros.

(pero ese es mi caso no se si otros más lo hagan xd)

Good point about schooners for water maps

300 food might be more attractive because when you spend it to train vils you get XP back.
