    I presume someone spawned too close to someone else (not being able to 1st Turn settle) who confiscated their first Settler.

    Can volcanoes or floods kill settlers? Or perhaps they ran unprotected into a barb?

    That's probably what has happened, floods indeed can kill settlers and I've seen a post or two on reddit illustrating just that, when the player is wiped out on turn 1 or 2.

    From the first stirrings of life beneath water, to the great beasts of the stone age, to man taking his first upright steps, you have come fa... And you dead.

    So I opened up a Maori game on a Continents map, hope to establish a city or two on every continent and become the dominant trade master of the world.

    Halfway though the game I realized something was wrong. I shifted my focus to science (not very hard, Maori is good at culture, means I will not neglecting my culture when doing science) and try to launch an earth satellite and see what happened.

    With the satellite, I saw this:

    (I'm the red player)

    Despite I set up the map as Continents, the game generated a single long continent where everyone besides me was on. And it is actually better than anything the Pangea map script would generate...

    A little flood over the arm area and you have two continents. You just acidentally set the game to start before Ancient Era.

    I find it so very satisfying to settle a canal city like that.

    I once played a game where every player was Cyrus. Led to a lot of funny notifications, highlights being:

    "Rumor has it that Persia has captured Pasargadae."

    "Cyrus has been defeated by Cyrus."

    And watching as Cyrus denounced, declared war, and made friends with himself. Additionally, declaring a surprise war pretty much went as follows:

    1. The Cyrus you attacked would play their war-declaration cutscene
    2. Every other Cyrus would then congratulate you for declaring war on their fellow Cyrus
    Which just led to ideas like "Oh, you know, Cyrus loves it when you declare surprise war on Cyrus, but hates it when you declare war on Cyrus."

    So much stuff like that happened all throughout the game, it was great.

    This happens sometimes, where two large landmasses are connected by a small bridge of land. Pretty cool when it does.

    Panama and Suez exist.

    Notifications can be funny even in standard game. I don't know If they fixed it yet, but at certain time you could recieve notification about you sending delegation to certain Civ.

    I used to laugh at the "[Civilization] is planning to found a city with their new Settler" notifications, until I started receiving "[Civilization] has used a Settler to clear a Barbarian Camp" notifications. I guess you really can't take for granted that they're using their Settler to found cities. :crazyeye:

    Had a game as Cyrus on a desert island which had only me. Excellent and fun game until the AI civs found me with gunboats while I still had immortals and swordsmen lol.
