    Hello,

    I'm pretty new to these boards, I mostly read the strategy guides and all, though I've been following this site since Civ2 and like it a lot.

    Since I'm pretty addicted to multi-player gaming experience, I wanted to try out the PBEM with some other newish players (I started Civ4 not long ago). My hectic schedules and online activities kinda prevent other types of MP.

    So I'm looking to start a team game with one or two players to see a bit how it goes. So if you haven't done PBEMs and want to discover them, let's discover it together :)

    I can play on a daily basis, so I should be able to do between 7 and 12 turns per weeks (vacations excluded)
    I have msn, icq, aim if you want to contact me. And I read my e-mails all day and evening long.
    You can of course PM me here aswell.

    I was thinking of a deity game with raging barbarians, maps and number of enemy civs to be determined. Human players being in the same team.
    Regular game (though I have BtS and Warlord)

    On a side note, I hope I didn't break any forum rules :p

    Just wanted to add... I might make a Pitboss server if people show more interest for that :)
    I have a computer to run it and I don't use my connection as much as I used to anyway ;)

    Just trying to find out if the problems of lost bandwidth are solved. (when someone disconnects improperly)

    i'll be happy to join you guys. but this won't be my first PBEM game, it will be my second. (my first being a game i'm playing now i'm on the 3rd move :) ) normaly people say some things about game setting when trying to set up a new game. speed, age, things like that. are we doing random leaders?

    p.s. i'll send my email address in a PM

    Hello mate, yes, indeed, I've seen that in other threads. Though I'm totally open on this one, I'll send you a proposal through mail and we'll discuss it.

    I was thinking of moving to a Pitboss game, didn't realised what it is and now have a server set up and it's really nice :)

    Way easier than having to mail the latest version to the next player.

    Which version of Civ are you using? Myself I got the 1.7.4 (from what the file says)

    Hi, i'd like playing a PBEM too. I'm playing one already and I can handle one more.

    I prefer a BTS game at prince/monarch level. I think that 4 to 6 players is ideal for not waiting too much for emails.

    I wait for your answers.

    Hello, currently I'm a bit overworked, so I have to slow down on my online/gaming activities. But I'll let you know if that changes.
    Though I opted for Pitboss games now as it is the easier to handle/setup as people just need to connect and if they don't, the turns keep ticking for the others.
    It has some drawbacks though, but nothing's perfect :)

    I'd be interested in a vanilla pbem game, but i also am not sure about playing on deity... also I'd like to do first game where human players team against the AI.

    If you have room for another player, email me: dconk199@yahoo.com

    I'd be up for one. It'd be my first multiplayer game, although I've been playing against the AI for a while now. I'll send my email in a PM

    I've had great success so far with my first pbem game so I'm going to start another
    vanilla or warlords only( no BTS yet)
    It'll be 2 or 3 games simultaneously, 5 human / 5 AI
    Probably Noble level, all other options to be discussed once roster is full
    I'll PM each to see if you're interested
