    I'm looking to start a new PBEM game in the next week. I'd prefer to limit it to 4-6 players max to keep the turn around times quick.

    Settings are negotiable but I would propose:

    Starting age: Ancient
    Size: Large
    Difficulty: Noble or higher
    Continents
    Temperate
    Medium Sea Level
    AI's with random personalities to fill in the gaps
    All victory options open

    Heihojin's PBEM rules are pretty comprehensive and are the ones that I'll use.

    If you are interested post a reply with your 1st and 2nd choices for Civs plus any proposed settings. You can also post your email address or I can get it from you via PM.

    THESE GAMES ARE NOW STARTED. THE BREAKDOWN IS:

    GAME #1

    ME - random civ
    Portuga - Washington
    J RocKeT76 - random
    Blid - Qui Huang (with leader name Jugurta)
    kvilli - random

    GAME #2

    Me - random
    Donald Kipper - random
    niamor - Hatchepsut
    karazack - Catherine
    magzi - random

    First turns are on their way out. Good luck to each of you.

    I'll be setting up the game and sending out an email with the listed players in the next 24 hours. The game should start soon thereafter is everyone is agreed and responds to the email.

    I sent out an email to the 8 prospective players that responded by posting or PM. As explained in the email I intend to break the responding players into two separate PBEM games to keep the turnaround times down and allow a good pace of play. Depending on the time it takes to get the email responses to confirm final players I would expect to mail out the first turns in 24 to 48 hours. Thanks again.

    So, too late to join one of those 2 games?

    If not, e-mail is drahnier_84@hotmail.com(I get so much spam already i don't mind typing it out), and waiting for a mailed confirmation wouldn't be necessary, obviously.

    You could make me a random leader, and i check my mail several times a day and would play my turns whenever i got them, so i wouldn't be much of a speed problem.

    Unfortunately I have already started the games. I may start a third in the near future and will give you first notice. In the event that someone should drop out I'll offer you the opportunity to sub for them if you'd like.

    I received the save from J_RocKeT76. I wanted to play my turn before going to work but had issues with the password protected error. I found at this thread http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=152832 that it may come from the partition type. I will try it tonight (I am GMT+1) and keep u informed.
    Sorry for the delay

    GAME 1 : done with the password protection issue. save sent to kvilli

    Norlamand : I think it would be better to have a thread per game. Eventually, u have preferred Huge size ? That means an AI civ for each human player. To befriend or to war, only time will tell :D
