    Well, I have a bottle of wine and some time, I want to consume both during Civ.

    However I'm out of ideas...

    This is what I did/do:

    Play Nobble/Prince (Prince is 90% losing, nobble is 90% winning)
    Most played: Ghandi (custom continents, one per player)
    Most played since BTS: Dutch (islands, 1 per player + several tiny)

    Anybody got a nice idea for me to try?
    I'm not a warmongerer, but any idea is welcome, I just lost my inspiration a bit I think.

    Noble is 90% win? Create a Noble game with the most painful opponents. Choose Napoleon, Shaka, Montezuma, Tokugawa, Boudica and Ragnar as your opponents, then see if you can win ;)

    Wow, you're fast :D
    But that is an option. Any suggestions for map/leader?

    A land map if you want it harder. Like Pangaea. It'll be rough then. I'd go with Mansa Musa for it - Financial to allow you to tech better without friends (you'll have a hard time in diplomacy) and the Skirmisher to apply an early choke to someone or to help you counter an Axeman rush if it comes.

    Gonna be weird though, since I love playing cultural. Gonna let you know how it worked our :D

    As the patch-man, I was bound to provide the most evil suggestion :D

    Hehe so true... However, I still applaud your work with the patch :goodjob:
    I've started the game btw. Allthough I choice 'balanced' instead of pangea, turned of barbs (yes I am weak :p ) and disabled space race (I really hate space races, since when it's enabled that is what the AI will pick to win, at least in my experience)

    Got lucky though, found silver, bronze, cows, and stone in reach of capital and first goody hut gave my masonry! Piramids and stonehenge are soooo mine :lol:
