    How many civs do you all play with?

    I usually do 11 AIs on a standard map with low sea level..but then again, I often can't even manage to get enough cities for national wonders (need 6 universities for Oxford, have 5 cities).

    I may decrease it by 2 in the future.

    How about you all?

    I've usually been doing a large map with the regular amount (I think it's 9, including me), but I think I'm going to try adding two or three the next game.

    I also play with 9, random personalities on normal speed, continent, standard size.

    Is this a golden number for human players to choose?

    I use large hemispheres map with low sea level and two hemispheres and 12 civs. There is usually plenty of room for everyone, and occasionally someone can end up with a massive empire. Zara Yaqob once had 32 cities and he had only conquered about 10 of those. In another game Pacal won a cultural victory with 25 cities and he never fought a war (as far as I could tell).

    Huge, marathon, continents/fractal/big & small, 10-12 civs. I'm trying to get more barbarians involved.

    I usually add 1-2 civs for the map size. So if I play a huge map, there'll be 12 or 13, a large map will have 10 or 11, etc.
