    I love you Civ 5!

    Lovely tactile production queue controls! I can just move things up and down the list, so can swap and change between two production projects as often as I like instead of all the confusing, restrictive (and sometimes disasterous) shift/alt clicking combinations that led me to delete many a nearly completed wonder over the years.

    It slowly dawns on the captain that setting sail may not have been a sound plan after all.

    I stopped lurking and registered specifically to state that this thread has been greatly entertaining during my work day. Thank you, sir.

    Within two turns of meeting them, Caesar asks me to go to war with Monty. Politics!

    I always knew where I stood with Bismark, we were either at war or nearly at war, or just having had a war. Feeling nostalgic I go and say hello to my old friend.



    Perhaps I'll give this Montezuma guy a second chance...

    Montezuma asks me to enter a Pact of Secrecy against Caesar. Immediately afterward Caesar asks me to enter a Pact of Secrecy against Montezuma.

    Man, they do like to bicker over here in Europe.

    I say yes to them both. I suspect this is 'clever' somehow.

    I have to say I'm not to impressed with Europe, they all seem to be militaristic nutters.... I hope whoever I meet next is a friendly, down-to-earth fellow....

    This is very entertaining, thanks! It inspired me to wipe out Bismark in my demo game!

    Look! There's some war happening over there! No wonder everyone here seems so grumpy.



    My astute geography skills tell me that sailing into the Baltic Sea is going to get me nowhere. I should head down the coast of Africa see what's happening down there. With any luck I can meet another militaristic civ.

    Finally I meet Suleiman. Something about him makes me want to give him a big hug.



    I can't find the hug option, so I ask him for a pact of cooperation instead.

    He declines, but he sounds sad about it so I'll let him off.

    They like their secrecy over here. I'm asked to be in a secrecy pact with Suleiman. Turns out he doesn't like Montezuma either.

    I say yes. I like secrets too!

    I wonder who's winning? now I've met more people I should check.



    Oh.

    Dynamic titles, I suspect. Depends on the civics or whatever 2K has renamed 'em. If only they could put in dynamic civ names, too. :(

    While I've been exploring the world I wasn't really paying much attention to Bismark. He's been busy back home....



    Uh oh.
