    The Gods aspect is quite obvious (i.e. the religion), but what about the Kings?

    Why not call it Gods and Spies?

    The kings would be the new leaders I presume.

    The title always makes me think of Monster Magnet's Gods & Punks.

    It was said in an interview that "Gods" had something to do with the game (with religion)

    "Kings" was more just because it sounded good :)

    So Kings doesn't fit in in this expansion specifically

    Gods and Spies sounds stupid, that's why. :p No, really, that's the only reason.

    Naming a game or book is always the hardest part of it. Imagine how long Tolkien tortured himself before calling it "Lord of the Rings" :)

    As I have said before it's Gods and Queens, Kings, Empress, Emperor, and Statholder

    Gods & Queens would have been more suitable title for the expansion given that it added more female leaders than vanilla. :D

    I kinda wish it was Civilization V: Of Gods and Men. It would just give a more grandiose quality to the divine theme of the game.

    I think not. Firaxis might have run into some trouble with that one.

    Should have been called "Battering Rams and Austria".

    please dont spam threads if you have nothing to add.

    as far as for the op I think they just wanted a title that sounded good and I think this one sounds great.
