    There seems to be no civ iv GOTM that does not finish within hours. I guess everybody still on vacation? The GOTM forum has been very quiet lately.

    PS. Did we ever have a game with Tokugawa? Could not find in the old GOTMs. I know most people hate him and consider him the worst leader - but that actually makes him an intriguing GOTM pick :p

    Hmmm, you're right about no current game. That's odd. I' just checked the staff schedule, and there are supposed to be games scheduled. I'll make some enquiries :)

    We played as Tokugawa in BOTM 62 and BOTM 115. Not very often I must agree. I suspect it's because us mapmakers see him as an exciting AI opponent (because of his unusual reluctance to open borders)

    Thanks, I am new to this, but I thought the idea is to have always at least one game running. No biggie, I will try one of the old ones while waiting.

    That's exactly right, that is the aim. In fact usually there should be two games running at any point - an easy one and a hard one. However several staff members have been unavailable the last couple of months, so recently the schedule has taken a bit of a hit. But hopefully we'll get something sorted over the next few days.

    Thank you :) In the meantime, I am playing Togukawa BOTM you pointed out (62).

    Just uploaded BOTM 158 to start in three days.
    I'm two weeks late. Created it before reading this thread or I would have used Tokugawa.

    Thanks :). I was curious about playing Tokugawa, but after playing an old GOTM with him (BotM 62) I'm glad you didn't use him :D. Zara should be much more fun.
