    Personally i like epic games however considering that there could possibly be 2 games for us id have to vote normal judging just by how long it took to complete 100 turns in the civ3 mtdg and that was just with 4 teams.

    I voted quick simply because you need to play 2 games (1 if we lose but that wont happen)

    With my statement above i'm assuming it is a PBEM.

    If that is the case just think of this, a quick game is 320 turns. Given that all the teams will have top players the games will probably end by the 2/3 turn mark, which is 210 turns . Also with 7 team we will be doing really well to average a turn every 5 days. For 2 games this will be 2100 days or 5.75 years to finish, but it could easily be longer. If you do the same sum based on a normal speed game it adds up to 7.25 years, on epic 9.75 years.
