So if I had the winning bid by saying 4 because I have:
2 Infantry
1 Tactic for a bonus point
1 Colossus for a bonus point

Would I have to discard the 2 infantry, tactic, and wonder to colonize?

You dont discard the Wonder
Or the tactic.

You just discard the Infantry - those two guys together are worth 3 (assuming you had Fighting Band).

The Colossus is a permanent +1 to colonisation.

Okay that's what I thought, just wanted to be sure. Thanks for the help.

And those Gaming Rules videos are great, I was just watching them last night to gear up for a play-through tonight

Just remember that even if you have enough to make your bid without any units (for example, if for your 4 bid above you had colossus (+1), cartography (+2), and a +1 colonization card), you MUST send at least 1 military unit. (in this case, you would probably not use the card, and send a warrior instead)

"Someone has to be there to plant the flag" is the way I always explain this rule.
