While we are waiting for the forums perhaps we should begin discussing the game settngs. Platform? Civ4 BTS Patch? I have updated to 3.19 Here are a few of the Game Settings to discuss. World Size Map type Sea Level Climate Standard Resources? Game Speed Barbarians Unrestricted Leader? Random Civilization? # of Civilizations (ours included) We can discuss the more advanced settings after we've ironed these out. I say we allow a few days for discussion and begin polling if the forums are up by then.
