Hi there After playing civ for quite a while I started having less time and interest for it about a year ago or so. A few days ago however I for some reason started another civ game... great fun, just like back then So now I'd like to play another SG though I didn't find anything around here that suits me... firstly, I'm not interested in complicated variant rules as I've come to find it sometimes quite annoying when you have to keep a dozen (more or less pointless) limitations in mind while planning/playing. I'm open to simple stuff however, like "never build cottages" (though I don't really consider this a limitation ). Before I stopped I usually played on deity level as I found immortal games too less tense (though I can't boast a very impressive deity win ratio ). When playing SGs, with all the discussion, the play is usually way better than when playing solo... so I'd kinda prefer deity but I'd agree to immortal too... I'd like a relaxed game that is about having fun. Not stuff like whipping people because they took more than a day to post "got it"... I also don't mind a gentle pace when playing as long as nobody loses interest. Pretty much all settings are open for discussion as well as variant rules... Please pop in with ideas... anyone is welcome to join!
