    Looking For: Novice CIV PBEM player here, but want to jump in ASAP (I am playing Beyond the Sword, version 3.13)
    Location: Raleigh, NC (EST)
    Favorite Civilizations: Hmmm, don't really have one. I would rather have us choose random start, but I can choose if needed.
    Communication: check email throughout the day, contact at jhubaseball@yahoo.com or send me a PM.

    I'll probably send out some invites myself as I'd like to get started as soon as possible.

    USE the Format... it HELPS!!!:goodjob:

    To those of you who have posted & would like to get more bang out of your request for games, let's keep game-starting threads out of this one please. Start your threads elsewhere & not here so as to avoid the clutter that is already building. This is a PLAYER DIRECTORY for all intents and purposes.

    This thread was created in the hopes of getting many of us Civ-Fanatics to advertise ourselves that we are 'ready, willing, & able' to participate in some PBEM or PitBoss games. So just reply and ADD yourself to this thread to form a simple Player Directory for the community to use for player-slot filling in creating games.

    For those that may be interested, maybe copying the ‘format’ and adding/substituting other relevant features PBEM organizers are looking for could help make things easier for gamers in general. I like organization---probably due to my ocd! For example, I'm thinking probably filling in the basics of the following would help:

    Looking For: (Type of game, game specifics, preferences…)
    Location: Where you be! (GMT Time & Place)
    Favorite Civilizations: Name your flavors erm,... Civs!
    Communication: How to get a hold of you. Which works best?

    * Hopefully there others like myself out there looking for games that can add replies to this to make it worthwhile for PBEM organizers.
    Peace, yet again… Fuel :king:



    ====================================================
    Example:

    Looking For: I'd like to join any-sized (slight preference on 4-10 people but no biggie!), more or less default settings CivIV (Warlords or Vanilla) PBEM game; no preference on map; culture-specific starting locations on or off as I'm not picky. A fun, reasonable and committed group of guys & gals who are available to do 4-6 turns a week---and have fun when collaborating or running amok/suicidal. Having fun & taking lumps as you go. With regards to the game speed, forwarding the save as soon as possible is NOT a priority as it is ensuring everyone is able to make the turn---ie: getting the turn done in 6 hours before folks are ready is not as important as getting everyone done in 2-3 days! But I’m sure we’ll see how it goes per group & play it by ear. Thanks for everyone’s time and happy Civving!

    Keep it clean, Peace, & much thanks, Fuel :goodjob:

    Location: GMT-8, California!
    Game Experience: Since Civ I’s inception,…
    Favorite Civilizations: America, Carthage, England, India, & Korea
    Gaming-Style: Honorable, easy-going, & committed.
    Communication: ICQ, MSN, yahoo!, VOIP enabled (TeamSpeak or Ventrilo), or Email
    Substitution Availability: Sure, why not? Just message me---as long as the game isn’t on turn 140 of 150!

    Looking For: A BTS game with a few humans, AI optional. Mostly something to get my feet wet with 4-7 turns/week. I'll mostly be playing after I get off from work(2200 here)

    Location: U.S. Pacific(GMT -8)

    Game Experience: Played since Civ II; intermediate Civ IV, though I am a newcomer to online-play.

    Favorite Civilizations: Any, or Random. For leaders, I prefer Philosophical, Spiritual, Organized in almost any combination(though I lean towards Spiritual more)

    Gaming-Style: Builder. I like to make the games last, get ahead, and then crush the competition.

    Communication: AIM, YIM, MSNIM, or Email. Or PM here.

    Substitution Availability: As long as the game is in the beginning/mid part of the game.

    Looking For: any vanilla game. Prefer larger maps and continents, and a high player/size ratio (~10 on standard), but just about anything would work. Prefer no barbarians. Honestly, though, it doesn't matter that much. Human co-op instead of vs. is also doable.

    Location: GMT-6, Illinois
    Game Experience: Civ3+Civ4 - Prince/monarch solo win ~90%, monarch maybe 40%, no multiplayer yet
    Favorite Civilizations: English, Germans, Chinese
    Gaming-Style: Honorable, friendly, builder although prone to crushing military attacks when necessary.
    Communication: E-mail
    Substitution Availability: Sure.
    Availability: Unsure.

    Me too. I've been playing some M2TW hotseat games recently which has put me in the mood. I always fancied playing a Civ IV PBEM but never got round to it.....

    Looking For: any really and the longer the better. I don't play Marathon games for nothing :)

    Location: UK so GMT +0 I can process a daily turn though

    Game Experience:Played since Civ 1 but not much experience of online play

    Favorite Civilizations: I probably play England the most but I'm not fussy who I play every civ has its own pro's and con's

    Communication: MSN, or Email - gav_rocks@hotmail.com

    Looking For: Anything BTS 3.13 or earlier. I'm actually looking for several games so that I can do more than one turn per day, hehe. I'm up for pretty much any games with a lot of people. I want some epic games. I'm even willing to administrate a game.

    Location: GMT -7 . Utah

    Favorite Civilizations: No Preference, though germany is fun since i speak German.

    Communication:

    email: arangarx@hotmail.com
    aim: arangarx7
    yahoo: arangarx
    msn: arangarx@hotmail.com

    Email is a guarantee, though any of those chats will be the fastest if I'm on my computer.

    Are you the one who just sent me that Guarav vs Col game?

    Well, I played my first turn. Do you have players for the other two spots? Who should I send the game to next? I use a program to email people automatically so I need the emails of each of the four players and especially the email of whoever is playing Kublai Khan (the person after me).
