I am just learning to play and in a game the question was raised. I looked through the add didn't find an answer. It would make sense since there are resources just outside the outskirts of the recommended capital placement. Also this would do well to represent the growing borders as in the PC game. Please share your thoughts.

My understanding is no, your outskirts never get larger than the spaces that border it.

What he said. These resources can be harvested using a settler or by placing the capital accordingly.

I beleive if that were true, you would be able to build a wonder every turn eventually.

We will have to try that house-rules some time. . .

Bigger outskirts would be useless anyway. In most games I have cities not using even half of the outskirts they already have. Most times you dont need that much buildings.
