    Isabella just invaded me with her network of vassal states surrounding me on all sides

    I'm playing 4. Well, sort of. I was playing it, and I will be playing it again, but I don't have time right now. The invasion thing I described actually happened over the weekend. How will it all turn out? I won't know probably until the weekend after New Years, the next time I anticipate being able to sit at my computer and play.

    I think "going fundy" means Broken_Erika is playing 2, though, no?

    Which one? 6? Not 3 or 4 surely.

    3 had PTW as an expansion.

    Actually, Civ isn't the best series in depicting an actual clash of civilizations. Sure, different 'civs' go to war with each other, but the civs function more like individual countries. AFAIK, the closest it gets is the diplomatic bonuses and penalties around having the same religion.

    The EU series is better. Still, going on a holy war results in war weariness like any other war, when in reality, it can be a good way to distract the populace from things that make them unhappy.

    Tonight's playlist includes Lipps, Inc. and the Sugarhill Hang. So hail that as well.
    I posted a long time ago that there are a lot of people who believe conflict is inevitable so they'd better make sure it happens.
    The blacks and liberation, why do they keep insisting on that?

    That'll be Civ VIII if EA gets it's hands on the franchise.
