    I regenerate when the start looks too similar to my last game. I want to play something different each time, and if I get another start with the same resources or near a desert (again), I'll play something else before taking that type on again.

    If I settle my settler and then sees I am one tile from the coast I regenerate....Thats mainly the only reason for me to regenerate. I have found that resently the fickle gods of Civ have started an avalanche of bad starts for me and I have regenerated a map 3-4 times, because I started one tile from the coast and that just sucks.

    hmm how about the opposite regenerating an awesome start? i once regenerated a 3 grassland gem start because i knew the game would become 2 easy with such a start

    one reload or one regeneration = loss in my games

    consider regenerating cowardly and have had several ice city river archer rush kills with beaver and silver and whale.

    Yeah... that's it. Nothing like measuring bravery by a turn-based-strategy game. :rolleyes:

    I play the game to have fun, not to measure my bravery or cowardice. If the start looks like a real pain, I redo it. Once I'm into the game, though, I don't like to reload.

    I'll usually keep on regenerating untill I get something decent and fun. Having a bad start usually results me getting bored soon and after all I just want to play for fun.
