    Since I started the other one, I may do so here as well:

    Okay, nine civs:
    -Poland
    -Assyria (possibly - however colours fit Hittites in a scenario earlier)

    My hopes/guesses:
    -Kongo
    -Belgium
    -Cherokee
    -Brazil
    -Portugal
    -Majapahit
    -Khmer

    The yellow is almost 100% Assyria with the siege tower.

    That to me is the end of Sumerias' hopes.

    Have they told, explicitly, that we're talking about 9 new separate civs? Or could it be more leaders in existing civs?


    Lol, the post frequency is quite high!!

    Zulu will absolutely be in there. Throw in Portugal and another North American civ. Past that, who knows!

    2 Assyria - colors and siege tower scream Assyria to me
    3 Portugal - trade route UA
    4 Zulu - ties into the Africa scenario
    5 Brazil - Tourism, baby
    6 Amer-indian tribe - I'm beginning to doubt this one since the Civil War scenario seems to focus on Virginia, but it could be a non-related civ
    7 Indonesia - modern Indonesia is a SE Asian tourist destination
    8 another African civ?
    9 something that ties into the "World Congress"

    9 New civs, haven't mentioned new leaders but given content ratios with the previous expansion you can discount them

    From their website:
    New Civilizations, Units and Buildings: Nine new leaders and civilizations are introduced, including Casimir of Poland, each with their unique traits, units and buildings.

    I'd love for the Zulu Civilization to become South Africa instead - it would include the Zulu but also the parts of South Africa that once were like Namibia.

    No problem. ;)
    The admins should merge them pretty soon.

    You are right Cicero. I think this must one of the new wonders.

    The civil war scenario likely means any native american civ will now be a north american modern civ.

    The Apache and Sioux are the likely candidates now, causing trouble in the midwest during the civil war. The Cherokee could be a dark horse as allies to the confederacy

    The confederacy could even be included...

    The Confederacy will likely be included only as a playable civ in the scenario (much like Manchuria in the Korean scenario or some of the civs in the Renaissance scenario).

    Probable:
    1- Poland
    2- Assyria (Used Seige Towers extensively. However, Siege Towers could be an upgraded Battering Ram and Attila gets a different UU).
    3- Portugal (International trade routes)
    4- Indonesia/Brazil (Tourism)
    5- Kongo/Zulu/Zimbabwe (Scramble for Africa)
    6- Cherokee/Apache/Sioux (Played role in Civil War)
    7- Khemer (Trade)
    8/9- Probably any of the options I said in 4/5.

    My wish list:
    Cahokia (Largest civilization in N America. Large trade routes. At one time Cahokia was probably the largest city in the world).
    Inuits (Why not? Could be fun).
    Israel/Tibet (Would be hard to add for people without G&K).
    Canada/Australia/Aborigines (Never gonna happen).
    Venice (Trade routes, but may be too many European civs)

    With the new trade system, the Phoenicians might be a good bet for a civ in the expansion.

    Let's think of the scenarios:
    Civil War means there's likely going to be a Native American civ and maybe even Mexico.
    Scramble for Africa pretty much confirms Zulu and Portugal. Civs I could see making an appearance in that scenario are Kongo, Belgium and Italy, the later could be a recolured Rome with different UU/UB.

    That's a great list and similar to mine that I posted in the thread with basically the same discussion:

    Okay, nine civs:
    -Poland
    -Assyria (possibly - however colours fit Hittites in a scenario earlier)

    My hopes/guesses:
    -Kongo
    -Belgium
    -Cherokee
    -Brazil
    -Portugal
    -Majapahit
    -Khmer

    Is it just me? But this time around we seem to be surer of our civs? The lists are more alike and so. Hmm... What about a dark horse civ? For me, i threw in Belgium, just for fun.

    P.S. ArtGrin. Yup! It's just a matter of time.

    Wouldn't that be too similar to Carthage?

    The thing about the Civil War scenario is that it focuses on the Eastern Theater, specifically between Richmond and Washington DC. I don't see a Native American civ playing a role in that. It doesn't mean there isn't a NA civ. I just don't see it being a tied-in civ. It could go to the Mississippians, who had extensive trade routes.
