I'm having trouble building my first city...

During Upkeep, I have to decimate Tribes that are in excess of the number of resource symbols I have in a region. Most regions can only support 2 Tribes.

A city needs 4 Tribes, or actually 5 tribes, since their must always be a Tribe leftover in the region. How do I get 5 Tribes together in one place? Do I build up tribes in two neighbouring regions then get them together to build a City?

Right, you've pretty much answered it yourself! Since upkeep occurs at the end of a round, but tribe growth and movement occurs at the start, you simply have to have enough Tribes multiplying themselves, and then move a bunch of them into the Region where you want to build your city.

At that point, you can start to use your city to support additional Tribes and so forth.

It's an order of occurance issue:

Your 4 tribes build the city -before- the upkeep, which is when you remove excess tribes.
