I've never done a SG before, but they seem like they're a lot of fun and a good way to increase you skill level. The civs I'm thinking about are Sumeria or Dutch, but I don't really have a preference. I was thinking of playing Sumeria and going for an aggressive Rex/espionage game. I'm thinking maybe 4 or 5 slots. map would probably be continents either standard or large depending on what people want to play. I usually play tropical, but as I said before I'm open to just about anything. so who's interest ? I would also be willing to go down to monarch or up to immortal if there are some more experienced players seeing as how i haven't tried immortal yet.
