    Thanks for watching our Beyond Earth series everyone! The posted video has our charts and some last thoughts between Rich and me. We'll be sure to get another game going, and were hopefully that there might be another patch before we start it up again. In the mean time, we'll be playing a Civ V game that you can watch over in the Civ V section of the forums.

    If you've got any suggestions or ideas for future games or just want to tell us to be better, let us know! Otherwise, happy next turn!

    Beyond Earth Episode 2: Meat the Aliens!

    In Episode 2 of our adventure, we begin to encounter the different challenges this new world has to offer. Everyone decides that sending explorers into the barely visible gas is always a good idea. Meanwhile, as aliens start to show some curiosity, Rich and JJ have different approaches on how to react.

    Beyond Earth Episode 3: Into the Miasma!

    In Episode 3 of our adventure, we branch out and start to differentiate our new civilizations. The options and choices, seem almost over whelming. And yet, we don't seem to be doing a much turn to turn. How will things...evolve? See what I did there?

    @PharAway - I think its reminding him of his married life too! :lol:

    Beyond Earth Episode 5: Humans vs. Miasma

    So far the biggest concern seems to be "Miasma Blindness". If the siege worms will go away, maybe the humans can get down to business and start killing humanity's last hope.

    Beyond Earth Episode 6: The Gang Clicks Next Turn

    It's not always glamorous on the New World. Sometimes, you just need to get down to the dirty work and click Next Turn. The stats are starting to show that despite having fewer cities, Rich's civilization is defining itself as a cut above the rest.

    Rich gets yet another wonder with the Ectogenesis Pod, and Justin surprises everyone with building the Master Control. Borders are expanding and relations are growing cold. Why can't we all just get along on the new planet?

    The Slavs creates an abomination and shows it off to its Brasilia neighbor. Brasilia is busy showing off its new Supremecy hardware inside Hutama's cities. The ARC is showing off its score through expansion.

    Beyond Earth Episode 11: Aliens Must Die

    Rich ends their war with the AI Hutama with some spoils of war, but can't seem to track a rouge siege worm. JJ and the Slavs finally figure out computers on this new world and put in end to the intrigue that was threatening to cripple it. Justin decides it's high time to start eliminating the locals and the abruptly goes dark. What could have happened to the representative from ARC?

    Beyond Earth Episode 12: Trash Talking

    The cold war continues for most. Rich keeps up his campaign against the AI. Justin re-establishes radio contact, and his branding of the planet. JJ just sorta sits there, plotting...planning.

    Beyond Earth Episode 14: Musical Interlude

    We head into a very peaceful mid-game lull. The Slavs finally discover what it means to be eating healthy on this new world as they continue to integrate with the landscapes and aliens around them. The new Xeno Swarm unit shows just how far the Slavs have come. Brasilia couldn't care less for the aliens, as their love for cybernetics have pushed their military to new heights, at the expensive of all aliens everywhere and Polystrailia. Justin and the ARC fall into madness. Musical caffeinated madness.

    Beyond Earth Episode 15: Harmony For All

    Rich finally meets the requirement to ignore Miasma. JJ's grand plan of polluting the planet falls flat on its face. Our players continue to play very defensive and bear the standard of the turtle.

    The cold frontier is heating up in the foundries of war. Rich starts a campaign against Hutmana. Justin discovers what happens if you ignore military investment. JJ, well, he just sits there playing paddy-cake with the aliens.

    The great war continues with the Eastern and Western campaigns. Brasilia in particular drastically improves their city count while the ARC contemplates their next brand. The great mistake, continues in the central portion of the continent.

    Beyond Earth Episode 18: Krackens of War

    Brasilia finishes its conquest with the Hutama. The ARC is besieging the African Union's capital. The AI's days seem to be numbered. Only the Slavs and the Franco-Iberians have any sort of peace. But now, the Slavs have a super-weapon. Should anyone else be scared?
