    I call Mansa Musa "The Mansa Man," but other than that, I don't really nickname anybody.

    Joao became Joe a few games ago. Spent the day reading up on Portugal and working out how to put Grandola, Vila Morena and some decent fado onto the soundtrack (world music is my favourite, so much so I have iTunes arranged by country rather than genre) and then went for a game...and lost. Maybe I shouldn't have put my name down as Salazar.

    Genghis for me is Gay Genghis from his rather...camp portrait and animation.

    Gilgamesh...well, it's an injoke between me and my OH and what he knows about David Cameron, but let's just say that I read up on the legend and every time he comes up on-screen I ask him how the Tories are getting on winning the next election and where his next spliff is going to come from.

    As for Victoria, she never survives long enough for me to have given her a name that suits who she is in this life (you'd never guess, and it's not pretty believe me) so even if I haven't got any units near her and she turns up, it's into the debug tools for some tanks even if it's 2000 BC.

    I can't believe no-one has got the obvious nickname from Pericles's animations. He starts with the helmet on, and waves his arms around before moving it to the top of his head. If you interrupt his greeting, his helmet slides up off his head without his hands touching it. It's very Magneto, and that's what I call him.
