    I suspect that any Canadian UI will be based around trading (fur), agriculture, or mining. The hockey rink would be a bit to cliche however I do suspect that Canada would be a culture civ (if included)


    But America, Brazil, and Australia do? Canada has a lot of history to draw from, a lot more than you know.

    There is if you look past 1867...

    Everybody seems to think that Canada just poofed into existence that year, like the Canadian culture and people just suddenly manifested out of thin air.

    For me they would certainly have some bonuses towards shipbuilding in the form of a UD or we will have the Carthage Cothon as world wonder

    The Cothon would make an excellent wonder.

    An idea of how a natural disaster mechanism may work, that could soften the blow of being subject to an RNG.
    In the early game being subject to a disaster generates faith, in propotion to the damage suffered
    In the mid game it may generate science, and in the late game, it's a consequence of a lack of investment in emergency preparedness.
    In any case I suspect that it will be larger empires that suffer greater than smaller ones, so it could also be a method limit wide empires

    I was thinking it would be good to see Canada as a Civ that is somehow able to make use of snow tiles, a bit like Russia can with tundra.

    That is exactly why I think it will not happen as it would be too similar to Scotland. Also, it would need to be usable in an age that is not the atomic one for it to have any real value.

    America gave us Star Wars and Michael Jackson (culture), the Wright brothers and the first man to walk on the moon (science), the atomic bomb and the greatest military in the history of mankind (military). I'm not especially keen on modern nations in Civilization, but I think America has earned its spot on the roster. Feel free to call me out for being biased if you I am.

    By "cross mountains" I take you mean "sit on mountains while my units slowly die of attrition" which was always Civ V Dido's favourite trick :crazyeye:

    The best way to mitigate RNG is to give players as much control as possible, reason why I think they might give us a way to know where this kind of disaster can happen, so we take it into account when we build a city and we might have ways to know when and where it will happen before it does, so we can prepare somehow. For me information is key and a way to counter or control the effects of a natural disaster. Players must have some agency over RNG for it do be a fun mechanic.

    Like I said I'm Spanish and my English has margin to improve, but... I was trying to be sarcastic. I hope they don't but I'm 90% sure they will go for the stereotypical solution.

    It's a part of our culture, yes, but like bull fighting to Spain, over emphasized.

    If they had to go that route, I'd prefer Curling Rink to Hockey Arena. Or even Lacrosse Field.


    415 years, if you count from Champlain's settlement of Port Royal in 1603. 500+ if you count from the settlement of St. John's, Newfoundland, a multicultural affair that fits fairly well with Canada's historical multi-culturalism.

    I think it's quite sure to think that Canada will be a civ end-game diplomat, especially with the World Congress included.

    Honestly, although I have preference for ancient/medieval civs, I do not bother much with inclusions of modern civs. What interests me most is that this civ is interesting to play, if Canada is interesting to play, I will play a lot with it.

    On that note -- and for those who keep track of these things -- St. John's claims to be the oldest city site in North America orginally chosen and continuously settled by Europeans
