Many Leaders Game 9 - Civilization 5

    When Beyond the Sword came out, we ran this game so everyone could get a look at the new features, leaders etc. It was very informative and fun to boot. With Civilization V coming out any day now, what better time to revive the concept! Its not a strict SG as such but close enough :p

    The premise is simple. Eveyone plays from the same starting save but as different leaders. We then compare how everyone goes every 50 or so turns. At the end of each round I'll produce some sort of dodgy data analysis to try and compare the games. If the pace gets too much, we can drop the turnsets to 40 turns (or even lower) at some stage.

    It appears there are 16 leaders, so if we can get 16 volunteers, we'll run with that.

    Reporting:

    Try and treat it like a normal SG game. Give as much info as posible about your tactics, plans etc. Screenshots are good as well. In the first round try and give some insight as to why you chose your leader and your strategy for winning the game.

    Don't publish half or incomplete reports and then edit later. Wait until you're finished and publish it all, even if you're late.

    All reports to be enclosed in spoiler tags.

    Use your checking in post to create a series of links to your game as it progresses. I will then create a link to all these posts. It makes it easy for everyone to follow a single game, rather than the round by round games.

    The timeframe for each round is decided once 75% of people (12/16) have published their reports. At this stage I'll produce whatever analysis grabs my fancy. Don't worry about being late, I'll go back and update the graph as the remaining games come in. There is no set deadline, if you end up a week behind, just keep going and you'll still be included.

    If time permits, try and load the saves of others to try and get a feel for what they are doing. Feel free to comment and give advise on other people's games or even ask advise on what you should be doing.

    Game:

    Map: Continents (we'll have to figure this out)
    Level: Prince (to make sure everyone can win and report on all the new stuff)
    Size: Standard
    Speed: Normal
    Leader: ? up to you.

    Starting Position:



    Starting Saves are spread over the first two posts.

    Timeframe:

    Civ V doesn't come out until 24th here is Aus, so I will use the weekend to figure out the save editing features so that I can get starting saves out next Monday and then the fun can begin.

    Haven't played Civ for at least a year, but V has me returning to the game. I'll volunteer to play any civ. Random or the one no one else wants.

    I think you'll need 17 spots, don't forget poor Babylon!

    I wouldn't mind trying this as maybe Washington. I don't expect to play him on my own for a while, so why not!

    As fast as the games seem to go, I think I'd be up for a spot in this. I'll take whoever hasn't already been snagged -- preferably not Suleiman, though (since I'm playing him already on my trial game).

    Great to see some sign ups and some familiar faces as well.

    Request for anyone who already has the game, is there a world builder option like Civ IV?

    1 day until it is released in Aus!!!

    Not a sign up (yet), but I'm getting the game tomorrow. If everything works correctly, then I'll play. Else consider me a lurker.

    Haven't seen it yet, although I heard the tool will become available within weeks on Steam.

    Patience, the game is coming to your side of the world too :)

    Slot me one , pls ;) No care for the leader ...

    I'll give a look to the issue of WB's as soon as my copy is active ( in a hour or so + time to download the special edition stuff + time for the first game + time to sleep :D ). Maybe we can do something about that via the Earth map without the actual worldbuilder.

    Yep, if there is no World Builder or starting save editor, will play around with a created map to recreate the same start position.

    Bad news, the maps are somewhat encripted ... not good for our proposes.

    Maybe we could run a trial SG while they are addressing the WB issue. And get back to the MLG 9 afterwords.

    After you got some sleep, someone fancy to start a trial Prince/King game ?
