View Full Version : PBEM Game : Nations Divided
Nov 01, 2005, 11:31 AM
I'm putting together a 11 player PBEM game. First 10 people to reply to this thread with the following information:
Game Nickname or Handle:
Civ Leader (Sometimes their are two, so pick one)
Game Password ( Email this to me )
Game setup will be basically left to normal except the size will be big due to the number of players. Make sure your SMTP address is correct and works. I look forward to be setting this up.

I got your information. When we get the rest of the players, I'll start it.
I have been hearing about having problems with their SMTP address. I can create email addresses through my server and use my SMTP server. Just email me if you need this help.

I have a lot of people Emailing me and messaging me asking questions. I figured I say a few things here to help this along. I have a forum on my domain that is available to everyone thats going to play this PBEM. It is located at www.jscarpenter.net (http://www.jscarpenter.net)
Use it freely. As for rules of the match, its hard to govern any. I just would like to have atleast 1 turn per 24 hours. And yes, this is going to be a long game. Please understand that. Also, you can use the forum I have provided. You can use instant messengers. Email. Whatever you have access. But remember, you may start out friends. Or team up during game. Chat and plot your tactics by email, instant messenger, and forum. But as they say, their can only be 1 winner. Thats what makes it fun. Feel free to email me anytime.

Looks like we are about to start this game. Just one more player needed. I need a few passwords from a few of you. I sent emails to you about this. I also need you to make sure your smtp address works with Civ4.
I got your message. Your added to the list for this game.

Ok, this game will start soon. I have all the players for this game. I'm taking care of the fine details and you will get your file soon for your turn.
For anyone that missed out, or interested in PBEM. I will be starting another game after I get this one rolling. Email me or message me if interested.

Hope you all enjoy the thrill of a PBEM-game!
I've just got my version of CivIV, so will play it a bit first before beginning the first CivIV-PBEM!

Turn sent (had to do it manually). Not a *bad* starting point for London ... I think I'll be held back initially regarding construction, but in the long term it's well placed.
Nov 04, 2005, 01:11 PM
inviting visitors are we?
Nov 04, 2005, 01:31 PM
I would, but the painters are still working, the furniture is covered and the place still looks a mess ... maybe when we've settled in fully :)
Nov 04, 2005, 02:38 PM
Cassisus- the ball's in your court.
Kolyana- you might want to put your poker face on!
Stujmaker- I can't recall if you mentioned what size and type map this is???
Good luck to all.
Nov 04, 2005, 02:41 PM
Also, I didn't have any problems sending the file from here.
Nov 04, 2005, 03:06 PM
Poker face? :innocent:
Nov 04, 2005, 03:28 PM

Nov 04, 2005, 04:15 PM
