Want to start a dialog. I'm looking for ideas, inspiration, imagination. Different ways to play to freshen the experience. For example, reducing numbers of civs on a given map to make more space. Rule sets you might impose upon your play to make you feel different about the game, limit or expand your choices, whatever. Mods that do specific changes to make it more rewarding for you. Play styles that others may not have thought of. Role playing, for instance. How do you make it work for you? Looking for ways people have found to spice up the Civ playing experience. But no, not going to wear a costume to play, that's out.
