    If you want to chose your foe, state the enemies then.

    That's a neat idea GA, give us a taste of our own medicine! The seventh could be a archrival of Greece (if Greece wins), or something someone has a better idea of, other than random.

    EDIT: there are roleplaying possibilites here...

    That would be interesting, but we all know who the 7th would have to be.
    The one.
    The only.
    The masterminds behind all our fun, annoying wars.
    The babs.

    Well... I voted before I read Ginger_Ale's idea. I wish to change my vote to "chosen" and want to choose the civs as Ginger_Ale described (with the Babs as the seventh).

    I was thinking about chosen with a historically accurate set of civs for the one we're playing. Another idea would be to pick the furthest ones away culturally from our civ. The suggestion of using the ones we've played would be what? I'll try to list the ones I can remember, in the order I remember them (not the order we played them):

    Rome
    England
    Japan
    France

    Perisa and Germany too.
    That makes the list: Persia, Germany, Rome, France, Japan, England (in that order) and the Babs. 3 European, 3 Ancient, 1 Asian. And us.

    @Mods: could you change my vote too. That sounds like a really good idea.

    Moderator Action: Voted changed.

    BTW, since this is a standard map for DG7, and we haven't had too many new C3C civs (Byzantines, Mayans, Hittites, Dutch, Portugal...), we'll need to pick which ones..

    EDIT: Ok, now I see what Ginger_Ale was saying. (I just changed my vote, too. ;))

    It seems that we want to chose them. I do like GA's Idea. I voted before he said his idea, so I also will like to change my vote.
