    Im all the time beginning to understand better these new civ- choises. Dutch and Portugese are good civilizations becouse they are seafaring and they have their uu from later perioids than antic.

    I may be wrong, but I remember reading from some preview that Babylonia would not be in the Conquests. They also said, that they add "8 new civlizations making the total number 31."

    I think we need 7 more Polynesian civs, and the rest can be forgotten.

    First Quebec is a nation, and I say a nation not a country because their definitions are diferent

    I can not see the problem to include some nations with no country like:

    Catalonia
    Galiza
    Brittany
    Basque country
    Scotland
    Kurdistan

    and more, because the game is country oriented.

    and yet when you look at most of those "countries" (more like socio-ethnic groups to me) they have achieved little or nothing other then being differnt from there neighbors....

    Where is the poll option "the new civs are all too ancient"

    Stop adding civs that are extinct and people arent familiar with, and that have UU in an age with already too many UUs, and the UU wastes your GA.
    i hate it i hate it i hate it

    Here's my newly revised list -

    Maorians - Polynesians with cool tattoos. The UU could be tattooed man with a stick in a boat.
    Easter Islanders - Made statues, plus, they're polynesians. The UU could be a statue in a boat.
    Hawaiians - Their culture has heavily influenced cheezy suburban guys' shirt purchases. Their UU could be a hula-hooper. In a boat, of course.
    Pulahuans - Just some more polynesians I made up for good measure. UU? Maybe a boat would make the game more interesting.
    Aborigines - Even disregarding all the great monuments and scientific advancements they left behind, their achievements in boomerang throwing alone warrant them as a civ. Is there any doubt the UU would be a guy in a tank throwing boomerangs making those weird noises like in Crocodile Dundee?
    Jivaro - Pioneers in head shrinking, they discovered that people die without heads. Their UU could be a topless lady like in the national geographics!! :groucho:
    Neanderthals - What, since when is it required that a civ actually was a civilization? The UU could be a dinosaur.
    Potatoes - A civ that could fill up Idaho on a world map. The UU would be a red potato.
    Dirt - This civ could fill any area of the world map that wasn't yet filled, which is important. A cool UU would be sand.
