We are starting late this month. And many people are busy with holiday activities. But this game is going to be short no matter how you play it. So every one can participate. Game play will be fast. But due to unusual circumstances, you should think long and hard before getting started. Also, for those interested in comparison games, this one is for you. Most elements of tyical luck in Civ2 gameplay are nonexistant here. Global Warming Global warming has taken place on a massive scale. All the polar ice caps, both north and south, are gone. Nations leaving on low land are wiped out. Only 7 fortified locations, scattered around the world, are left. The humans who managed to reach these locations have gone through so much suffering they have lost all the knowledge of their ancestors. You are leading the descendents of the once mighty Aztecs. Can you help them reach glory again? Will you go for conquering the meager land on the world, or will you shoot for outer space. The choice is yours.
